Batman Has Issues Too

Doing superhero drawings is like eating pistachios. You can't eat/draw just one. I beg your forgiveness for this.

Ever since the Batgirl painting I've wanted to do some more superhero stuff. So I give you a Hulk drawing. I'm sure the comic book bigwigs will come a callin'.

NPR Calendar

Here's an illustration I did for an upcoming NPR calendar. National Public Radio has been a part of my listening life for a long time. It's an honor to be among a list of artists and illustrators who have been a part of this project year after year. I'll let you know when they go up for sale.

Prints at Nucleus

 For those who can't buy an original painting Gallery Nucleus has these prints for sale. They are beautifully done and very reasonable at $30. I was really happy with the quality.

Optical Allusions at Gallery Nucleus

Optical Allusions by Bill Carman
My show at Gallery Nucleus opens this Saturday May 12. The opening runs from 7-10 pm and I will be there. I hope to meet some of you who have been so loyal to me. So if anyone can stop by the gallery in Alhambra (Southern Cal) please do and introduce yourself. On another note, it's kind of fun to do these thumb grid things with paintings. As this moves down the links will remain at the top and side of blog for the duration of my show

As I finish a couple of illustrations which I can't post yet I thought about posting older pieces which I am thinking should be completed. Sometimes it happens that I stop in the middle of a painting because of time, deadlines, or other issues. I'll return later only to think, "Hey this one isn't so bad."

That's the case with this piece. Part of a story which has yet to be completed, this painting is about a little guy who steals color. Do you think it's worth finishing?
