Hellboy gives back to the church.

On December 2nd Maverix Studios will hosting yet another fund raiser for a good cause. This time it's for Glide Memorial Church. The proceeds from the charity art auction will go directly to their Children's Creative Arts Media Center. Here's a link to Maverix's blog for updates- http://maverixstudios.blogspot.com/

I'll be donating this piece entitled- "Hellboy n' Shit".


When I found out about the auction I didn't have a clue as to what my piece would look like. So I just whipped out a piece of matte board and started slappin' down some acrylic paint, India ink, acrylic gloss medium and torn newspaper pieces . I then took a photo of of the acrylic/ink chaos, cut the photo in to pieces and glued it back on to the matte board. Next I took a blurry photo of Venetian mask my wife and I have in our art studio and glued that to the matte board. At this point I still had no idea where the fuck I was going with this. I then drew a face on the blurry mask photo, threw in some stars, started slappin' some paint around, added a cig, and what not, then scanned it. After futzing around in Photoshop for a while, this guy kept saying to me "dude, I'm Hellboy, hey, it's me, Hellboy", so I finally agreed with this red feller, "yeah, he is Hellboy." So I Hellboyed him up a bit, printed it out on a big ass piece of paper, and that's where I'm at now. Next up, I'm going to mount it to a piece of Masonite and finish it off with some acrylic paint and various media. I'll post that when it's done.

There's three things I love about this post besides the art. One; the use of the word 'futzing'. I thought only my wife and I used that word, other than 90 year olds. Two; The fact that it's Hellboy giving to a church (which really isn't odd if anyone has read the comic). Three; you giving us your process on this one. I'm thankful that you don't always have everything laid out in your mind before you start. Awesome stuff man, it's looking really cool so far.

just some fan.
wanted to stop by to compliment and i had a question about materials. your art is awesome. i was wondering what kind of sketchbook you use because I would think the paper would have to be pretty heavy to take in all that paint without buckling? really curious because I can't find any skechbooks unless its a watercolor paper. thanks man. Hope to see more from your sketchbook.
