New Art in Neon Layers, Pt. 2

Continuing my bright and bold color trend, I present two new pieces of art! The first, inspired by “California Dreamin’” as performed by Sia for the upcoming blockbuster San Andreas (2015), is an externalization of internal conflict. I wanted there to be a blending of dark and stormy elements mixed with peaceful imagery and bright,…

New Art in neon layers

It’s no secret that for the past year, I’ve been creating layered art pieces. I’ve wanted to play with textures and bright colors. In February of this year, I started thinking of art – and my life, really – in terms of bold color and choices. With this post, I present three bright and boldly…

New Art in February: “February Joy” to “Burning Desire”

Happy last day of February! At the beginning of this month, I presented a piece of art titled February Joy, which was extremely well-received (the piece even fetched a couple purchase offers – will it sell?).

New Art | The Faces of Elephants

Boug & S’More: A Swamp Tale [novel] and a poetic sexual odyssey), which you could note by following me on twitter or Instagram (@TheBobbyJames). Yesterday I managed to create two…

New Art: Nina, Mya and Queen Isis

Last week, there was a bit of a clown craze.  This week, I’m tackling sexy.  The three pieces I present here, Mya, Nina, and Queen Isis, all began with an idea for hair. Nina was first in this group.  On my wall there’s a Marilyn Monroe poster.  I looked at that to draw inspiration, but…

New Art: Enter the Circus!

I’m on a clown craze lately! I’m beginning to think I’m designing creepy clowns to overcome my fear of them?  I have to prepare for the upcoming Freakshow season of American Horror Story, after all. That said, there are a few pieces to introduce to the new (organically so) collection! First I’ll begin with Burlesque. …
