|03:13 pm - Mitt Romney Oven Mitt-Themed Paintings|
I moved in with Felix on August 1st and now after being there a month I think it will work out. I only need to live there for a year or so then hopefully I'll be able to move out and get my own place again. Having a roommate just isn't for me.
Anyway, at least I've been getting some artwork done. I've completed the first stage of my "Mitt Romney Oven Mitt, Enchilada and Magic Underwear" painting series. So far I've got five paintings on there and want to make at least three more before the election on November 6th. I'm getting these finished and online a LOT later than I should have. I should have started this series in February or so, right after Mitt was pretty much the Republican nominee, but now here I am with only a couple months to try and sell these things.
A couple weeks ago I finally sold my Obama/Michael Jackson "Noseless" painting for $120 but only after it had been sitting in my art store for a fucking YEAR AND A HALF and now here I have five paintings that are only going to be relevant for TWO MONTHS (unless the unthinkable happens and Mitt wins, of course).
Yes, I am aware that someone has already come up with "Oven Mitt Romney"(http://ovenmittromney.com) LOL, what bastards! That was my original name for this painting series, something simple, but screw it.
I decided to put speech bubbles in these Mitt Romney paintings, alot of text, I guess because I was influenced by all the comic books I've been reading the past year. The bad thing about them, though, is that it's hard to read the text in the pictures I took. On the website I've got larger images you can click to that make the text more legible, but I guess I'm not entirely happy with it. Fuck it. Somebody just buy the shit, please. LOL!!!!
Here's the fifth one of these I made, inspired by Paul Ryan being the vice-presidential nominee and all the talk of taking away Medicare. The page for it is http://ovenmitt.tacowerewolf.org/mittpainting5.html
I hope everyone is doing well and i hope to stop in here more often!
Awesomeness. I didn't know you did paintings!! :)
Nice to see you in, now and then!! Good luck on your sales!!! ♥
Thanks, Randy! Sorry about the delayed reply! :=)
Oooooh, I like that! I've always had the Christ-Art-Fetish, as you probably know, and have a few Christ-image ideas of my own for Obama. I fiddled around a little with the Crucifixion in my last Mitt Romney painting, "The Crucifixion of the Oven Mitt Man Imposters." I'm really reluctant to portray Obama, himself, being crucified or compared to Christ cuz that seems a little hackneyed. The image you linked to, though, is definitely cool. Here's a pic of "Crucifixion of the Oven Mitt Man Imposters":
Dude, you should get a Facebook cuz that's where I'm posting all my stuff now. I'm trying to remember LJ and make posts every so often but it's getting harder and harder for me to do lately, especially since I don't have Internet at home right now. I sold ONE Mitt Romney paiting and now I'm still stuck with SIX. LOL, who the fuck cares about Mitt Romney now? I got other ideas, though, and I'm still going to be making stuff through the winter and beyond.
