Portfolio Images

I've had a portfolio-images blog set up for awhile, mostly just sitting there...so I finally uploaded the majority of my portfolio (paintings, etc.)...it isn't very organized at the moment, and isn't ideal, but it is what it is....go check it out if you're interested and if you have any questions about a particular piece, ask me here in the comments section...every one of them has some kind of story, so feel free to ask away if something tickles your fancy...

Fabulous. I'm so glad you posted these, Jeffery. You're very talented. My personal favs were the oils; Skeleton 2 and Wrench and Peppers and the acrylic, Paw. I especially loved the 3rd sketch for Launch. And I'm laughing at the joke of the title Meet the "Von Pyres", you nut. The Jenny sculpt looks fantastic but my all time fav of your work so far, is the remarkable magic we know by the name of Nola!

I tend to like the more realistic work the best. The still life with wrench and peppers, the tent and circus print, the Failure to Launch series, the Skellingtons (sic) and the Fates series. I also dig the Jenny Greenteeth acrylic.

The Fates are probably my all-time favorites, maybe b/c it was the first series I did on my own, not as a school assignment...

...the Wrench&peppers was an assignment, create a still life with tension...the Von Pyres was a comic strip I developed as a pitch to Red5Comics, an online comic publisher which apparently never got off the ground...their site hasn't been updated since the 'coming soon' was put up, and I never did hear a response from anyone except "We love your work and want to work with you in the future"...these first three are a bit awkward, my first and only attempts at comic-like work, but definitely something I want to develop more...I have about 15 strips planned in my head, still love the idea of a vampire sitcom...originally conceived as animation (2-D), then converted to comicstrip form, now back over to the animation bin in my brain....eventually stop-mo, hopefully...you'll see it on Cartoon Network in about five years :)...Lily is very Nola-like...except shes a vampire...

The skeletons were both quick paintings, 30 min, brown oil paint washed onto gesso'd paper and wiped away with an old t-shirt...a great way to paint reductively...most of the painted figures (the yellow one, the pink one) are done the same way...

Paw is my grandfather, a true craftsman... over the course of twenty years, in his retirement, he built a 4 bedroom house on three acres of wooded land, about an hour away, by himself...its a great place to go and relax for the Mrs and me, no one lives in the house so it is kind of our little retreat...the painting was done after returning home from a weekend in the hammock, in the wee early stages of our relationship...

Beauty, man. Don't forget to put some kind of linkage into your sidebar, so future visitors can easily pop over and see the ouvre!

(Love the red eye in the headline image, btw.)
