Speak No Evil

Due to the growth of my business and the ever increasing emails / notifications and everything that goes with it, I will unfortunately no longer be able to answer all of my comments directly. I would like to thank all of you in advance for the support, comments, favorites and watches. I appreciate each and every one of you and value your friendship. I'm posting a few ways of staying in touch with me below. Thanks so much! Be inspired… :work: :forgiveme:

Today's post is called Speak no Evil. This illustration was originally a Photoshop Contest entry at the current news Photoshop contest web site, Freaking News which has sadly closed down for business. This was one of my earliest photo-manipulations and contest entries way back in 2010. As I've mentioned in previous posts, my favorite contest there was called "The Freak Show". The freakier the better and pretty much an anything goes type of contest. During my early years working in Photoshop, I was particularly influenced by artists such as Max Sauco with his sometimes absurd surrealism and in this case I drew inspiration from one of my favorite artists, Gottfried Helnwein whose paintings depict hyperrealistic surreal and sometimes images that are a bit disturbing. If you would like to see some examples of his work and learn a little more about the artist, I did an artist feature which can be viewed here. I've reworked several images that were done in the early days lately which I think had some potential but needed a little work and I want to make sure I have good quality images in my product line for download. If you're interested in this image, simply click on the image above and you'll be directed to its product page. I still have several of these to complete and make available in my store before I release some new work with a fresh new look. I hope you like them.

Update: I'm finally back behind my computer after a long difficult time physically. I've suffered from back pain most of my life and it all came to a head a couple of years ago. I saw several doctors n the VA system and after about a year and a half of getting put off or offered opioids, I sought medical help outside the VA system. I had to get outside insurance which took a full year. At that point, I was starting over again with all of the possible treatments outside of surgery but it was getting so bad that I wasn't able to sit behind my computer anymore, hence the lack of posts and new work for such a long time. I've literally been out of the game almost completely for the past 3 years. It's been a long painful road but I finally found a brilliant surgeon in Baton Rouge who after exhausting all other possibilities, performed a double fusion on my lower back. L4 - L5 and L5 - S1. I'm now 6 and a half moths out of surgery and doing exceptionally well. I've been in the gym 7 days a week rehabbing myself and strengthening my core. It's going better than I had expected but still have another 6 months or so before I'm 100%.

On top of that, I was totally out for the past 2 months with a kidney stone that was more stubborn than me. I've had them before but this one brought me to my knees. I was scheduled for surgery last week at Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans but fortunately passed the stone only minutes before they were to roll me into the operating room. I'm so glad all of that is finally behind me. I feel like I'm 20 again. Ok, maybe 35 but I'm doing well and ready to get back to work.

Thanks to my friends and all of those in my social network who kept me going through those tough times. Look for some cool new work right around the corner. Lord knows the news headlines are giving me plenty of material.:bow:

Rapper 50 Cent

Tonight I have a manipulated caricature of rapper 50 Cent which I've reworked from an older caricature. As I said previously, this is good practice for me and it's not super labor intensive while my back heals from surgery. Coming along great by the way! The guy gas brutal features, so there were a few different ways I could have taken this one. I came very close to scrapping this one. Nothing seemed to be going right, then I zoomed back to a small thumbnail and I saw what my problem was and was able to correct it. So there's a lesson there. Don't get caught up in the details in the early stages. Take a step back and look at the whole thing. There's plenty of time for details in the end. Not to say this is a flawless caricature. It's far from it and I learned a lot from this one so I'm sure I could do a much better job the second time around. Well, it is what it is.:bow:

Here's a silly illustration I finished this weekend after our first snow in a long time. I has lots of time on my hands and had been fooling round this this for a while so I decided I needed to get it finished so I can move on to other things. It's called Truce Already. President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have been at it for a while. Maybe I should have called it "Little Rocket Man and Mr Diplomacy". Come on guys... can't we all just get along? Well, I'm off to the gym and I'll be getting started on something more serious when I get back. OK, maybe not so serious but different.:bow:

Firoze Shakir - Street Photographer

Due to the growth of my business and the ever increasing emails / notifications and everything that goes with it, I will unfortunately no longer be able to answer all of my comments directly. I would like to thank all of you in advance for the support, comments, favorites and watches. I appreciate each and every one of you and value your friendship. I'm posting a few ways of staying in touch with me below. Thanks so much! Be inspired… :work: :forgiveme:

Todays post serves two purposes, one to show you my latest caricature but more importantly I would like to introduce to you a dear friend of mine, Firoze Shakir. We first crossed paths on Google+ and soon after connected on other social media platforms. Firoze first captured my attention with his sometimes humorous and sometimes very thoughtful poetry that he used to comment on my images. The comments were always welcome and entertaining, from simple rhymes to complex pieces of poetry. I soon learned just what kind of man this was commenting on all of my posts. This is one of the most humble men I know. So humble in fact that I couldn't get him to write a bio so I'm taking a jab at it. Firoze is a very talented street photographer, photojournalist and street poet in Mumbai, India. Firoze is a man of peace, promoting all religions and faiths. Though we live worlds apart, he has become a very close friend of mine always cheering me on and complimenting on my work. He sees through all religious, racial and geographic barriers. He is a man of true character and I'm glad to call him my friend.:bow:
