As I perused his profile, I was impressed by his artwork the most. I browsed through the images and saw all different varieties of subject matter, from pinup, to alien, to fan art. They may not have been the kinds of images of which I'd purchase a print, but I certainly appreciated his talent nonetheless.
Throughout our relationship, as he became prolific once again with his painting, I kept wondering why he wasn't producing pieces that truly showed his talent (and decades of hard work), such as the images above. I wondered why he kept producing pieces that were good, yes, but weren't the WOW factor I knew he had in him.
In August he was fired from his job, a situation that turned out to be a huge bonus to his painting because, until he found another job, he had the time and energy to devote to his craft. One night he was told by a friend that a movie was being made about Bob Lazar, the whistle-blower for Area 51 in the late '80s, so he thought it would be fun to paint a concept movie poster.
Thus began the movie poster idea, whether it be commissions from clients, or fan art fun. He is finally, for the first time in his life, fully in his element, and it is a sight to behold. Thank you for being a part of this, for supporting a man who has truly wanted to do nothing in his life except paint. If you can't afford a commission but know someone else who can, please spread the word. All the "likes" and "thumbs-ups" in the world won't put food on the table, and being able to support his family is what would make this all come full circle.
Thanks for reading!
