Pixel Penis Tote: work in progress

alright, so heres my plan:
ill be taking both my digital penis/ vagina images, pixelating them, then printing them onto tote bags! so from across the street, you'll see a massive penis bobbing along, but when youre close enough to talk to someone, itll just look like a bunch of squares and no ones the wiser. hilarious! first i gessoed and gridded a wood panel, then loosely block out the shapes with acrylic.
then just after i began painting i decided the resolution on my reference photo was too high. the penis was too easily distinguishable from across the room. where i was more intrigued by the interplay between wearer/ observer in a public setting, like down the sidewalk. so i started again with larger pixels. (also, legendary gay pornstar michael brandon says hi. hes part of another project im working on.)
at this point, 43 out of 289 squares have been coloured. by the time im done this ill be a paint mixing master!

I Drew A Penis!

ive had this little drawing done for a while, but just havnt had the time to post till now. hes the brother to my earlier vagina post. both of which are in the first steps of many in my greater toronto pride 2012 plans. so youll see more of these veiny, moist siblings soon.

(dont worry. this isnt a picture of my penis, its a frankenstein of 33 dicks)
here are some compositional sketches. after staring at so many penises for so long i sort of lost track of what was what. so i got my friends to vote. number three was a head above the rest.
i also forgot to take as many process screen shots but i think this gets the message across. and makes me seem very efficient.

I Drew A Vagina...

happy new year everyone!
some times when life blueballs you from artistic relief, you end up exploding with great ideas.
and boy do i have some fun ideas in my balls- i mean brain...

this year im planning to grab myself a booth for Toronto Pride 2012 so for the next little bit ill making some really funny products and posting the progress here.

this is just a part of my grand master plan:
i drew a vagina for my lovely lesbian friends, all two of you. (hi penny! hi mylo!) im also currently taking requests for more lesbian friends, as i am waif-like i need many strong protectors.
now painting this vagina was a little tricky. first of all: i dont know if you guys know this about me, but im gay. i can send all day looking at sloppy rosebuds on the internet but when it comes to vaginas im lost. and google wasnt much help either cause i had no idea what i was looking at. is this a picture of an attractive vagina? or one with an std? (and im not saying your lady bits are gross, im saying i needed to do some homework). so i built a mini gallery of 24 girls, frankensteined them together and: tada!

side note: i always had an extra tab open with a cock as a safety blanket.
