Vinyl Madness

Over the past few weeks me and my good buddy Joey have been playing around with casting Vinyl figures.

We first made a silicone mold of Bebops (TMNT) head.

Here's an inside look at the mold after we pulled the original head out. It took about 4 hours to harden.

We cast a few heads, just to see how it would work. And boy oh boy did it turn out great. 

Then we cast a **broken** Frankenstein medallion I had.

We cast it with clear resin as well.

And then with color dyes added to the resin. 

More to come soon kiddos. What do you think?

Inside the sketchbook....Slimed!

While watching Lost last night with the little lady, I felt the urge to sketch out some Ghostbusters goodness. So here's my version of Slimer, Stay Puft, & Ray Stantz. What do you think???

More Collage....Flower Child!

Another piece that I pieced together. It makes me think of a 90's Alternative Band CD cover. What do you think?

Accordion Journal Collaboration.....Terry Garrett

Terry Garrett recently asked me to be part of a journal collaboration with him and I jumped at the opportunity. He's an amazing guy and even greater artist. Although our styles dramatically vary one another's, it was just about being open to the idea of someone else's work. You know, figuring out how to meld the two together. Much like collage work.

Pictured above is my contribution to the book and now I'll mail this puppy off and see what he comes up with. In return he'll mail me a book that he has started and I'll work around, over and with whatever he has laid down. So keep your eyes peeled for another post about his book. 

Stay tuned true believers....

Space Cadet.....Mixed Media Painting #1

This is a quick post to showcase a Mixed Media painting I did over the weekend called Space Cadet. I had to scan this bad boy in quickly, because he's already sold and off to his new owner.

Till next time true believers......

More Journal Pages Scanned In.....

I've been absent from my blog as of late. Quite honestly I'm just stretched way to thin. However, I'm back with another post and a glimpse at some completed Journal pages. The plan is to begin selling printing, stickers, etc on my upcoming Etsy site to help fuel this Juggernaut. Hope you enjoy......

The Hope Tree.....

This is the final piece that I created per a friends request for the Hope for the Homeless
center. It was a blast to make, and quite frankly it's hard to let go of. But alas it will be going to a good home.

First up, I inked out the drawing and water colored the little lady on a separate piece of cold press paper.

Then I busted out my Dr. Ph Martin water colors to create the background.

I saturated the page with water and let the color run together.

A technique I learned from this video:

Then came the air brushing. Of which I used a random ABC stencil to create a funky background.

Then I glued the little lady down.

Airbrushed a seemed fitting.

And finally I aged a piece of paper with the sentence "It Only Takes a Seed" and burned the edges.

This piece was a hoot to create and I just love the final product.

What do you think?

Cheers, Sir Lapsley

Family Tree....WIP

More pages in my "Playground" Journal....

The page on the left is a mixed media page that includes old magazine pages, my mobile art, water color cut outs and air brush.

(Shout out to Caterina for telling my about Matte Medium)

The page on the left is a work in progress. It started from a piece of "Structure Art" my wife showed me called Salvation Mountain. The plan is to water color in the page and see what else hits me. So stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Also here are some other finished Journal pages:

Journal & Photo Playground.....

I finished doodling this page a while ago, but just recently added the Peerless water color. I drew the Phantom portrait on an old book page and used alcohol markers to add color.

A little monster that I drew in my "Idea" pocket Moleskine.

Double Exposure image made using Vignette and Fuzed applications. The image is a selfie combined with a field of flowers behind my warehouse.

I've been playing around a lot with paint and stencils lately and this is the product.

The Forrest
Another double exposure image....

I decided to film while I added the final details to one of my pages....
