I just finished this portrait piece of Henry Rollins reflecting 2 different sides of him in the movie He Never Died. Jack also being Cain is what inspired the Genesis 4:7 title as well as the piece of scripture I drew below him.
I have drawn Rollins in the past as a gift to my brother, Mike. This piece however I will actually be giving to Rollins himself, so the pressure was on.
I have been working on this piece in between other projects in hopes to have it finished on time. I was getting behind and frustrated when my brother (my Yoda whenever I need encouragement) texts me “patience young Jedi” and as always he was right. I took my time and focused my energy on it today. I am very happy how it finally turned out.
Now I can sit back and count the days til my birthday when I will be standing there (with my brother and husband) completely lost for words handing it over to Henry Rollins in person. EEEK!
As always prints are available in my Etsy Shop.
So remember that box of Aurora Universal Monster models my husband brought home for us to reconstruct and bring back from the dead? Well we finished another one…… Dracula.
This is how it was when we got it….
This is how it looked after I cleaned it, sprayed it with a primer and started to paint it….
And this is how it looked after I finished painting it and my husband played Dr. Frankenstein and put him back together. I then did a few paint touch ups and then he did a nice spray laquer over all of it.
And here it is displayed in our dining room next to the Frankenstein one we finished earlier this year.
We gave the Creature from the Black Lagoon away as a gift to one of our tattoo artists so we plan to be on the look out for another one for our own collection. The last one we have in the box to reconstruct is the Wolfman!
