I created this video to document the making of the cover painting for The Burning Of Rome's new album, "With Us." I started the painting in 2010, when the band started recording the album. I set out like I often do, with no particular direction, just listening to the demos and seeing where it took me. During a few hiccups and stalls in the recording process I lost momentum on the piece, and set it aside until recording resumed. Once the band got back at it the record took a real spacy sci-fi feel, at least partly due to all the theremin Adam was lacing the tracks with. I had recently come up with the Star-Eye character and I decided to take the art in that direction, set in deep space. So that's how it came together. I hope you enjoy the video. All sounds were taken off the album which will be out September 28th on Surfdog Records. Peace.
I made this video in an effort to document the making of a weird psychedelic painting I call "Won't Get Fooled Again." It is 16 X 20" acrylic on canvas. The painting is a gift for my friend, Brianna, who just finished vet school at UC Davis! This is the first video I put together in iMovie so I am sure these will get better as I make more of them, and get a better camera.
Here's my second video in this series of painting process videos I am doing to document how my paintings come together. This painting is called "Heart and Soul" and was painted in July of 2010. I went totally overboard on the "title sequence" but I am having fun learning my new camera.
