Painting: TheBig Lebowski

This is a painting for my pops. He loves the movie: The Big Lebowski. 

I decided to do a stencil for this painting and limited myself to three colors to simulate the style of an old poster. I focused mainly on color and texture once again.

Using a painting knife for the background added a tactile texture to the surface of the canvas. Each layer of paint on top of that also has a rich texture.

Capt. Spaulding is easily the most evil clown in movies. Here is a little sculpture made with the Mini Munny figures sold by KidRobot.

Artist trading cards is a fun hobby. The idea is you make a piece of art on a card that is 2.5″x3.5″ and trade it with artists for their artist trading cards. You can use any media you like and any support you like. Lately I have been painting with acrylics using playing cards for supports.

You can go here to make an account and find different people that like to swap cards in the mail.

A good way to get several cards at once is to sign up for an open swap. This when someone agrees to host a swap for many artists at once. They usually have different themes like Halloween, sunsets or my favorite space octopus. Then you are asked to make three cards that fit the theme and it is also encouraged but not required that you make a bonus card for the host of the swap.

Here are the cards I made for the dark fairy swap.

You can see more atcs I have made here.

You write some info on the back of the cards: your name, location, swap name,card title and you can put your artist website on the cards as well. Then you put the cards in plastic sleeves, put those in an envelope with an SASE and send them to the host. After the trade deadline the host takes all the cards and sends you cards from three different artists.

Here are some cool cards I received from swaps.

The first one is from the “wizard swap” the second one is from the “favorite movie moments swap” and the bottom one is my all time favorite from the “nerd swap.”

Have fun!
