Milk & Honey

Excuse the lack of updates, I've been working on a handful of oil paintings slowly. Insomnia. Time to get back on track.

*edit Some of the stuff I'm working on. Medium drying. Trying something that might be stupid.

Francesco D' Isa invited me to do a piece for Pornsaints. I'm working on this portrait of May Ling Su. I reworked it a lot, the drawing ended up a bit choppy. I'm going to redraw it onto my surface anyway.
I'm not settled on a title. My thoughts are still on this. If you are curious, I suggest reading about Pornsaints, the essay is really interesting. I decided to work around a theme of body fluids. Sex & Religion, Grotesque/displeasing to the senses & Sweet/pleasing to the senses...

Odin, basking in the lamp glow... right on top of my work.

I did this a while ago for the Moo pitch, but they weren't awarded the project. It was a really fast piece + two drawings. It's about Mayonnaise.
