Some six years ago, @tonyb told me about this great new place to share pictures, so I set up my account and posted my little original collage, "Allez Cuisine". It never made it into the "Popular" SHK, but I kept sharing and gradually people started to like my stuff. You won't find this going back to my early pages as I deleted a lot of posts in 2012 while in the throws of a depression that had me go dark on social media for a few months. I got over it, but never bothered to repost a lot of those early originals. So here's this one again. I figured it should be here at the end. And, although I'm sure Bobby Flay can do some pretty amazing things with a tough cut of meat, I still think Iggy's gotta be a little stringy.
After working up this sketch last night http://mlkshk.com/p/1BECF I grabbed a biggish canvas and a yardstick and penciled out guidelines to take a stab at it with oil paint. Spent this afternoon getting this far with cerulean blue; after this spends a week or so drying I'll come back with cadmium orange to fill in the negative space.
My buddy Jesse has been meeting with me on Monday's lately to do art, and is helpfully holding up the canvas here.
