Issue #3 of Title Goes Here: Now Available!

My back cover full page ad is featured on the back of the third issue of Title Goes Here: magazine.

This magazine features dark imaginative fiction by talented authors and can be purchased here.

Their website says:

"Issue Three has been out for about two days as of this post, released on April 13th, 2010. This issue features fiction by Jeremiah Donaldson, Martin Turton, Edward Rodosek, Ivan Sun, and Lawrence Buentello. Cover art for this issue is by Paul Robinson. There’s also a back-cover ad for artist Chris Orapello, and even though it’s an ad, that’s well worth a look, too, as it does feature one of his amazing paintings. Mr. Orapello will be our cover artist for Issue Four, so consider this your sneak preview!"

Thanks to those individuals at Title Goes Here:!

Painting Class

I'm currently involved with organizing a weekly open attendence painting class that I will be teaching in Medford, NJ. Details are still sketchy, but this is going to be a good time for sure!

Art anyone?

Title Goes Here:

Recently I have had the opportunity to not only have an ad in the April issue of Title Goes Here: , a magazine of dark imaginative fiction, but I also have the honor of doing cover/interior art for them as well!

It's a great magazine and issues can be purchsed online via their website!

Topless Nude With Black Hair

I always enjoyed this image as it captured the quiet beauty of the model whom I've barely spoken too. Perhaps it is a lie, but the moment in the image always grabs me as she stands out from the simple background as if she were in the middle of doing something or not entirely ready to be painted. It is the ambiguity of life and the fact that she is not looking at the viewer gives her just a few more seconds of privacy before she notices our presence.

The Fate of Us All

The Fate of Us All is an image which portrays an apocalypse in the presence disfigured beings. The irony being the look of delight on the face of the creature in the foreground who blocks the viewer from the impending devestation. The greeter in the image represents the grotesque deformities indicative of society's future legacy.
