TEST PATTERN

**TEST PATTERN**


  • If there had actually been a plague of flying trilobites in your area, you would be alerted to report to your nearest government relocation camp for decontamination and flamethrower duty. 
  • Please report possible sightings to black-uniformed visor-wearing authorities in your area. Follow instructions. Then head to nearest government camp for re-education. 
  • Do not attempt to capture specimens from what may be a flying trilobite swarm.
  •  
  • The government will requisition you a flamethrower and futuristic silver thermal protection jumpsuit with nifty yellow stripes. It will cost the taxpayers 
  • ₤ 150 000.

Trilobite Boy Rocks Out
by Glendon Mellow
Oil on beechwood panel, 2010.
This original oil painting was commissioned by Karen Burke as a birthday present for Mike Haubrich of Quiche Moraine. 

Featuring my trilobite-human hybrid character
Trilobite Boy putting on a killer show.  This was totally fun to do, and I took a departure from some of my usual techniques: a "making of" post will be up soon. I've submitted this painting to the Art Evolved Pop Culture gallery, launching later today.



Hope you had a great birthday Mike!

Art Monday: slate fragments



Some of the dismantled pieces from my 
final undergrad project.

It's funny, after the discussion it provoked I have ended up dismantling it anyway.  I kind of like the pieces, and I'm going to experiment with ways of hanging them on the wall.  This is the type of slate pieces I've been thinking I may put into my eventual Etsy shop.

I kind of like how the slight difference in thickness of the bottom piece of slate ("gears") causes all buy the center to become blurry.  Depth of field is funny with scanners.

Here's an up close picture of my brushstrokes on that creepy eye. You can see I didn't use white, I instead used naples yellow and naples yellow red, which I think give it a tired feel.
