Painting of the Day- Deep Space Drifter!

Space is a cold, dark, and lonely place. This piece, "Deep Space Drifter", I created to have a good portfolio and conversation piece. I wanted to take two very distinct movie genres and merge them into one. Let me explain. I wanted a space painting where you have the dead skeleton in a space suit. That's not a new idea, but my thought was this, space is a cold vacuum. I don't think an astronaut's body would deteriorate in space. I might be wrong, but that doesn't seem scientifically sound. So, I came up with a slight answer; time travel and the chaotic old wild west. I get to keep the iconic skeleton in the space suit and I get to add some intrigue that leaves the viewer wanting to know more. The title of this piece is a play from one of Eastwood's "Man with No Name" movie titles; "High Plains Drifter". I think it works well! I will offer this piece, not only for sale but also for print at the upcoming Dallas Comic Con in May 2014. This piece is an acrylic painting on a 11" X 17" piece on poster cardstock. You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here

I have the table purchased for the Dallas Comic Con in May. If you want pre-show pieces for that show, let me know.

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

I have opened a shop to sell my toys. Here's the link:

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:

If you like what we have, be sure to tell your friends! We need your word of mouth to help us keep making shows!
