Krackass Art

Ah Yes. My Damn Art Blog by: BV Krackass

It has been a while since my last post, I apologize. Summer time runs me down to the ground with activities! If you will be in Philly for July 6th, 1st Friday, I will have a few pieces of art up on the walls for Drink Philly. Stop by for some art, drinks and BBQ! http://philly.thedrinknation.com/articles/read/8108-First-Friday-with-Art-In-The-Age-Q-BBQ-Tequila-July-6

“You Don’t Always Wear It On Your Sleeve” Sketch that’ll be shown at Drink Philly.

Hand-Made Coasters in Action! (see below for details) Thanks to Krista for being my hand model!

For my next Zinefest event I am making coasters! I have printed out laser prints of some sketches and paintings I have done recently, went to Home Depot and purchased tiles for 16 cent each, purchased chemicals to make epoxy resin and WAH-LAH! Coasters they have become! I find it fun to make crafts after work,  life is a bitch unless you know how to keep that bitch in line! (just kidding!) Hope you enjoy, I took some photos during the process to show how easy & fun it is!

Step One: Print, Paste and Prepare for Epoxyness

Step 2: Mix and Apply Epoxyness and Resin to tiles

Step 3: Blow out bubbles with straw, let dry for hours and hours, when dry stick cabinet pads to the bottom and BAM! Use the damn coasters :)

Today in the North East it is rainy. Rain drops all over! Days like this are awesome because it makes me want to finish up some paintings. Take advantage of the gloom.

” When He Can’t Be, She’ll Take Care Of You”…funny, as much as I missed painting, it made me think of other things I’ve missed such as a seeing a good friend of mine. This is for her. (Unfinished)

It’s been a month or so since I’ve been able to finish these two paintings but soon enough they will be complete! They are close to my size, about 5’2 & 4’9 painted on wood panels. I am excited to finish them! The larger one “My Life, My Lover, My Lady Is The Sea” was inspired by the song “Brandy, by The Looking Glass”  (it is also my name so I guess the title of the song signs my name for me..haha)

Recently I’ve acquired an awesome Guided By Voices mix. Needless to say I’m a fan. Robert Pollard writes pretty amazing lyrics not to mention the music has a lo-fi sound but it’s catchy as shit! I started effing around and doodling as I was tuning in and out and back in again.

“Hey Aardvark where’s my ashtray, Put it in my room so I can smoke, Let’s hire a race car driver, Drive through the park and just tell jokes, And if it costs too much, I’ll foot the bill, Because I will, Oh oh I would like that, Oh oh i would like that.”
