Mashups

I made these paintings back when these two guys were still alive.  I always thought Worf's hair resembled that of James Brown.

I also thought Ray Charles would look better in Geordi's glasses than Stevie Wonder.

For a while, I had these for sale as T-Shirts, but before my shirts ever took off they got taken down by a copyright even though they're parody.

In any case, this was an experiment using acrylics and colored pencils.  In addition, I also used Tombo Markers.

I'm planning to do more of these mashups.


Lubricant

This was another painting I did in Advertising Class.  The assignments were very simple.  We had to come up with print ads for common products.  One assignment was to produce an ad for the laundry detergent that we used.  Another was for hot sauce.  This ad was for [WD-40](https://amzn.to/2r20o4F).  At the time, my focus was to do humorous pieces.  However, my technique(this was before computers) was to paint realistically.  This took a long time and the longer it took, the less funny it seemed.

In any case, if you understand movie history, you'll get the joke.
