A Halloween Treat- my Monsterpieces in Airbrush Action Magazine

This Friday I got a great surprise in the mail- the Sept/Oct issue of Airbrush Action Magazine!

I’ve been reading the magazine for years now and have had a few of my paintings and tees featured in their Reader Gallery before.

But I’ve never been THE Reader Gallery- much less have it be a two page spread!

They included many of the airbrushed paintings I did for my one man show last October (at Adam B. Shaw’s Studio), and my website address!

Pg14 has Wicked, Jack, Snape and Bride.

Pg15 has Mummy, London, and Sith Happens.

All paintings were airbrushed with a Paasche VL-3 on canvas using Createx paints and ranged in size from 20″x30″ to 4′ wide and 5′ tall.

This Dracula painting (not featured in the issue) was 4’x4′.

London was 4’x5′ and was the centerpiece of the art show.

Stay tuned for more info on my upcoming Sherlock Holmes art show at Theatre Memphis this October.

Thanks again to Airbrush Action Magazine for featuring my Monsterpieces in their current issue.
