Did I show you the Charlie Bit Me video? The two kids look exaactly like these guys. I thought the colors and stuff were great on the last one, and now you bust out with a new improved version? Beautiful.

the video starring your painting's kids: http://www.break.com/index/charlie-bit-me.html

Lovely piece.

Bianca said...

Wow, I love this version of your painting. I totally have to agree with Emma, the last one was great, but this one is even more beautiful. Who though you could wear red with pink and purple and pull it off!! I love how the lady has one red shoe and one black ^^.

your work is amazing, i love your style and your sketches rock! this piece made me laugh, i guess cause the subject is so close to my heart these days :-)

Thanks Federico, Bobby, Christopher, Aldo, Bill and Louis!

Emma, Charlie's the funniest baby ever! I did think of him as I was painting my little nephew. He's got 3 1/2 teeth now and apparently likes biting too.

Hi Bianca, thanks. My sister loves colour and can probably pull off any crazy combination.

Wow, Noah and Lori, thanks a lot! Team work all the way!!! (And I'm looking forward to meeting your best team work of all ;)

The darker values and warmer colors are really working better in this one. Nice framing too with the lighting. Lovely!

Thanks Drake! The first one was accidental and experimental - with no real art direction.
Here I began making decisions: I opted for more contrast and simpler, more saturated colours. I'm slowly getting closer to what I want.

Thanks Doodlers, Smita and Heejung; you guys make me miss Toronto!!!
Glad to have you around on the blog!
