Painting with The Wolfman

Today I hung out at Charlie's house where we're getting ready for a show that got thrown in our laps by The Downtown Artist's Co-Op.  We got one month to fill the DAC and are off to the races, opting to paint all new material because we looooooooooove to punish and push ourselves.  We're calling the upcoming exhibit The I Don't Know Show which will consist of all mixed media paintings, much of which will be on recycled materials.  The byline for the show is "Keeping it Clean in the Dirty South," since we have to watch our subject matter for the venue.  Personally, I think someone spiked the punch down there for us to get the show in the first place.

Let's take a look at what we cranked out today!  I'll get you started with my best effort to do a Fantastic 4 on the fly.  I picked the 4 out of the heap of numbers Charles found and that's where I got started.  We'll end up doing a couple dozen of these rusty metal number signs...

Here's some of the wild stuff Charles has been cranking out!  Remember, you'll get to see a slew of these at the show.  We're just getting started!
We've been sketching on some with charcoal first
