Slimer, 9 layer stencil. by Zombie-Pacman
Slimer, 9 layer stencil.
Latest stencil, finally finished; Slimer. 9 layers plus some fixing. Trying to use masking tape that's the same colour as the paint beneath it is a nightmare (I use Frogtape, canny beat it), so when I did the black outline layer I had wee black triangles dotted everywhere that I had to fix.

Oh, and it glows in the dark! But I can't seem to get a picture of it glowing in the dark; when I do, I'll post it up.
Frank Sidebottom costume, 2014 by Zombie-Pacman
Frank Sidebottom costume, 2014

My Halloween costume from 2014, Frank Sidebottom. I had folk coming up to me and saying, "Oh! You're the guy from that "Frank" film!", and I'm like, "...well, yes and no..." until I got fed up explaining it. Head was boiled alive because I used insulating tape on the inside.
Minecraft Me, Halloween Costume 2013 by Zombie-Pacman
Minecraft Me, Halloween Costume 2013
My Halloween costume from 2 year ago, my Minecraft avatar. I effectively went as myself for Halloween. The head was the only bit I got around to painting, as well as the sword. I also made and painted a flat cap and hipster specs combo to fit on top of the head.
James Randi stencil, 2 layers by Zombie-Pacman
James Randi stencil, 2 layers
James Randi, famous sceptic, smirking on pages from the Fortean times. I was planning on using one of his books, but they're expensive, even 2nd hand. Came out all right, just hope people don't think it's a beardier Steve Jobs.
Alan Turing, 11 layer stencil. by Zombie-Pacman
Alan Turing, 11 layer stencil.
Without Alan Turing, the odds of the Germans winning WW2 would have been a lot higher. He was that important. Which makes the way he was treated by the British government after the war completely unforgivable. This is my tribute to the man.

Bit disappointed in the background letters not really looking very letterish (they did before I painted the head), but it'll do; they were supposed to look like gibberish that descended down and were "decyphered" by/into Enigma machine keys. I had the concept for the painting in my head for a while, and it came it alright.

No worries, you're doing God's work man. :)

You're better than most - probably because you put serious time into your art.
(But being "better than average" here on dA, and racking up :+fav:s or page views will never be a reliable indicator of much.)
I bet you're the last one who can see how much more confident the work is your gallery is getting, then-to-now. Keep pushing on. Keep being so courageous in your composition and execution techniques...!

Thanks for the words, man. Today's been a weird one, between being awarded a Daily Deviation and selling a painting (the Hunter S Thompson stencil), I've been trying (and failing) to keep a straight face. Right now, I'm looking at projects/canvases I've lined up and planning the time I devote to them; it's all I can do. If I could only value my work properly, I don't know, I might be able to make a living out of it. That's the dream, anyway.

Holy bovine, I hadn't even seen the DD. That almost makes it sound as if I knew what -I- was talking about.
But enough about basking in the glow of your success...

I really doubt anyone "value[s] their work properly" as of a single celestial moment. It's a learned behavior - no matter what those critical voices say (that sound a lot like, um, this person or that one). When I have a paycheck coming in again I'll be looking real hard at your prints - and it's a good era for selling things online or in person, so I hope it'll be easier to get to the point of "making a living out of it" for you young turks than it ever would've been for your elders.

Cheers for the words, mate. The DD has boosted morale quite a bit, I'm trying to get enough work together to hold an exhibition somewhere. "Unfortunately", people keep buying my stencils (at a cheap price, I may add); a friend commented that I'm possibly the only artist in existence to complain about people buying their work.

But I see selling them now as a short-term goal; money in my pocket, and a short-lived morale boost...organising an exhibition and bumping the prices up, getting my name out there and watching commissions roll in as friends of the buyers see my work on living room walls and are referred to me, and the potential for going self-employed. THAT'S long-term. Just hopefully not TOO long-term.
