KYARR!!!



My friend Manny Skiles put together a Pirate-themed art show last week at this little gallery in Culver City named Basswerks. That goofy fool above is me above pointin my finger at my piece. It's a pirate, duh, that painted in gouache on illustration board and I think it turned out pretty well.
This is just a snapshot from towards the end of the night. As an added bonus you get to see some "real" inbetweens of a hand gesture. Nerdy, but cool. If you squint it looks like Kellie has a really long and bendy wrist.
And here's the painting again but it a different frame. I think it looks a lot better in this old frame than the new one I had bought for the show. The colors are better against the dark frame and it just feels more piratey. Any thoughts? Jeremy is letting me borrow it as long as I can find him another cool old frame to trade it for. Thanks buddy!

I like the light brown frame that you had at the show.. less busy and it has a nice 60's feel to it..

stick with the first frame, the second is too old for the coloring of the painting, the first makes it seem more fresh.
