I'm digging the colorful version. It has an fun ironic quality because of the colors and the subject matter seeming like they shouldn't together.

I posted something for you over at my blog.

Oh wow! I didn't see that! I'm honored. You're one of the darkbloggers that make it seem like a community. Thanks!

And I appreciate the comment about the painting. I want people to like those abstract "clown barf" pieces. That's the closest thing I have to my own style.

Thanks for the insight over at The Uranium Cafe about the Leone film. Great stuff here. I do some basic design stuff myself in Photoshop but my wife is the wiz there. I sued to draw (damned I hate that phrase) but just so not anymore and have been struggling for years to just do doodles. Here's a link to a few drawings I managed to make some scans of once:

I just reached a place where I knew I was not going to make money at art and that I lacked the temperament to work that hard at it. But I really hope I get over the blocks as I am not that young anymore and want to do it just for fun now, the way I did as a kid.

I am adding you to my two film blogs blogroll. I am going to check out that Artrage software myself.

Thanks

Bill

That's good stuff! Yeah, I have struggles of my own with art. It doesn't bother me so much knowing that there are so many artists better than me but I never feel sure what I should be working on and what's a waste of time.

ArtRage is a killer paint program if you don't want to buy pay Corel Paint prices. It works great for oil, watercolor, smooth inking and a bunch of other mediums. I got the upgrade price so it was worth it for me. Thanks for the link! I dig your site, too, of course.
