I Will Paint For Food

So, between the traveling and writing, I managed to squeeze in some painting this past month as well. Here's the situation: a girl in my office has a 6 year-old son who loves Star Wars. She commissioned me to paint a couple of chairs and a table for his birthday present. While I do enjoy drawing a lot, I have never worked with paint before this project. It was a little nerve-wracking at first, but all those hours of watching Bob Ross as a kid must have paid off for me. Take a look:

Interested in your own private commission? (Ewok end tables really tie the room together!) Email me at thejacksack@gmail.com.

That little kid will need a change of shorts when he see this!
Great work!

Thanks!

So, who wants a wookie nightstand? :)

Seriously man - you have some crazy skills w/ a paintbrush too. If my brother saw that chair he would have to sit down, for a number of reasons...

Wow. You did an awesome job! Yet I'm strangely frightened. ;-)

Adam said...

Why are you scared, Amy? I could always do a Tony Almeida chair, if you like!

I was trying to figure out how to spell that trill sound people make when they think something is sexy, but I have no idea.
