Interests
Variety.
Throughout my life, variety has been key.
Whether it has been pastimes and hobbies, friendships and relationships, or subjects to paint and draw, variety has always been important to me.
I like to experience and learn new things and, to that end, variety is essential.

And so, what are the subjects that I like to paint...? 
The simple answer is, "Anything". 
The great comic book artist, John Buscema, once said,
"To be a comic book artist, you have to be able to draw anything and everything."
Wise words, and not just for those who wish to draw comic books, but for any aspiring artist. 
And they are words that I try to aspire to - I try to practice drawing anything and everything. 
I do, of course, have my particular favourites: I have always been interested in drawing people, and this has led me into portraiture. 

Again, variety. 
It is rare that one finds two people who look exactly the same and, even when one does, their individual characters can be quite different...

So, variety, hence the title of this blog, 'Alien Bounty Hunters and Sugar Skull Girls'. 
However, just in those two subjects lie a diverse, and intriguing, spectrum.

The 'Alien Bounty Hunters' part of the title to this blog refers to a series of paintings that I am currently working upon, mostly inspired by characters from the 'Star Wars' film franchise. 
One painting has already been uploaded to the 'Artworks' section of my website: the actor, Morris Bush, as 'Dengar', a bounty hunter first seen in 'Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back'. 
Many more will be appearing over the next few weeks and months, and some may well find themselves the subject of limited edition prints - keep an eye on the website updates for the new 'For Sale' section.

The 'Sugar Skull Girls' part of the title to this blog refers to a subject that I seem to have kept going back to for the last twenty-eight years or so.
The most readily identifiable example of this is the Mexican Día de Muertos, the 'Day of the Dead', however, the painting onto the face (usually skulls, but can be many other varied subjects) reaches much further back to pre-recorded human history.
Painting onto the face has fascinated me for a long time - partly the artistic aspect, but also the cultural and storytelling facets.
This fascination has found its way into my artworks and my writings.
An immediate example of this influence can be seen in the 'Serenade' stories, and more of this will be illustrated in the concept design art that will be posted upon the website in the coming months.
However, the 'decorated face' will also be seen within standalone paintings and sketches in the following weeks.

Until next time!

Dave.
