Suicide Bomber T

"Mommy how does she ride rocket"?

I had a life size banner of this piece as my main attraction at SDCC. This kid was walking by with his mom and saw it, then proceeds to ask his mom repeatedly. Mommy how does she ride the rocket?

right on. thanks for getting back to me so soon. would you mind if i ask, what media did you use on the Bobbie painting?

Keron said...

Hey Bill, it's mix media, watercolor, gouache, pastel etc.

bill said...

should have asked before, but what paper and/or canvas did you use? the reason i,m asking is i like that look and i have been contemplating starting to paint.so any pointers you have i would greatly appreciate. thanks again

Lately I've been using Rives BFK a lot. Seems to be able to handle different media well. I'd recommend get some watercolor and start playing with that and build from there with Acrylics. The key to watercolor is controlling the wet stage of the color. Wet on wet allows you to blend colors easy. Wet on wet is dampening the paper before you apply color. Hope that helps...mostly have fun and don't try too hard.
