Today’s Art ( 24th February 2020)

Although I’ll be posting a landscape painting tomorrow (and then the series will resume after this), this is the second digitally-eded painting in my 1990s-style “horror bookshop” art series. And, although this one was a little rushed, it was a hell of a lot of fun to make 🙂

Well, although I’d originally planned to give this digitally-edited 1990s themed painting more of a punk theme/style, it ended up going in a very slightly different direction when I started making it.

Today’s Art ( 17th February 2020)

Well, although the composition of this digitally-edited painting wasn’t as good as I’d hoped, I had a lot of fun making it. In addition to being a stylised “1990s nostalgia” painting, it’s also a cartoon about how horror fiction really didn’t get the level of prominence/publishing/shelf space that it should have during the 1990s/early-mid 2000s.

“It Came From The Horror Shelf” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (2nd February 2020)

Well, it’s been ages since I last made any fan art. So, today’s digitally-edited painting is based on the second and third series of an old TV show from the 1990s called “It’s A Mystery” that used to both fascinate and terrify me during my childhood (and probably influenced my art style in some small way too).

I’d almost forgotten about it until I happened to see a mention of it online the night before making this painting – naturally, I ended up rewatching as many clips of it as I could find on Youtube and I was amazed at how cool-looking the main studio and opening credits were (in series 1-3, at least), how hilariously terrible the acting in the “reconstruction” segments was, how this show couldn’t exist in this age of smartphones/omnipresent cameras (where there’s less mystery in the world), how fascinating some of the mysteries are etc… Seriously, I miss 1990s television 😦

Since this is fan art, this painting is NOT released under any kind of Creative Commons licence.
