Breaking Bad Babushka Dolls!

From Left to Right:  Walter White aka. Heisenberg, Jesse Pinkman, Mike Ehrmantraut, Saul Goodman, Skylar White (with baby Holly), Hank Schrader, Gustavo Fring, and that burnt up pink teddy bear with one eye that was floating in the pool.

If you haven't seen Breaking Bad, watch it!  You could even sit and watch the whole series at once thanks to the internet.  It's one of my favorite shows, so why not make a nesting doll of it!  This 8 piece set measures from 7 inches on the big one, to 3/4 inch on the smallest.  I only made the one set, all hand painted with acrylic paint.

Check out the September issue of Playboy, and this time for the articles!  I'm excited to say that I painted a Steven Seagal nesting doll for and article about him and his ties with Putin and Russian gun manufacturers.  Haha, who would of thought Steven Seagal would be out in Russia hanging out with Vladamir, I thought he was a cop.

He-Man Nesting Dolls!  I liked this cartoon when I was a kid, so I had to make a nesting doll set of it.  From left to right you have Skelator, He-Man, Battlecat, She-Ra: Princess of Power, and Orko.  The Skeletor doll sits about 4.5" and Orko is 1.25".  All are painted with acrylic on wood.   It's on display in the Skull Show at Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA.

From Bedford Gallery:

Opening reception Thursday June 12th, 6 - 8 pm.

$5 Admission.

Join the artists at the opening reception and enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres hosted by the Bedford Gallery Guild. Rock your skull attire and accessories!

Closing our season, the Bedford will narrow its focus to the physical and historical world of the skull. The Skull Show examines the role that skulls have played in the historical register, as memento mori, traditional religious icons, and vanitas themes in still life paintings. The Skull Show will also highlight the role the skull has played in the contemporary arts, exploring its appearance in counter cultures such as skate, surf, tattoo, as well as urban graffiti projects.
