I was commissioned to make a painting of roosters for someone’s kitchen. I then decided to create a wine label with the painting, since those roosters are making wine to begin with. Also, a rooster is used as the symbol to indicate that a wine is an authentic Chianti Classico, so the wine basically had to be Chianti. While most Chianti labels are very decorative and traditional, I decided to change it up a bit and take a very modern approach. Cin Cin! (cheers in Italian)
Another blast from the past. My mom decided to put this painting i made two years ago in a fancy frame. Crazy how frames can make art look so much more legit. Fun fact, this painting was actually my first ever tumblr post almost two years ago.
And yes that’s a rooster married to a toad. I’m pretty sure that’s legal now here in Pennsylvania.
Don’t worry tumblr, i haven’t abandoned you! Just been a little busy. In recent news, I just graduated from Syracuse University! Which unfortunately means I had to move out of this legendary studio space. I am currently in the process of setting up a temporary studio, but in the meantime I’ll post some things.
