gnarly gnight

i've been checking out everyone's pieces for the autumn society's shell shock ninja turtle tribute show and they have been pretty amazing. this show is going to be huge. i FINALLY got the chance to make mine. unfortunately i had basically no time for it, so it's a little more "painterly" and a little less detailed than i would have liked, but i'm still very pleased with the result only because it is another 3-D painting.  here are the separate laters of my gnarly gnight painting (pronounced NIGHT, not g'night!)

michelangelo is on glass raised about 1/4 inch above the city background. i had to do michelangelo because he's my favorite. i assume donatello was my favorite growing up because i was (and am) obsessed with the color purple, but mikey has always been the best character. i hope as many people check out the show as expected considering this of course looks infinitely better in person. these layered pieces are hard enough to get photos of, but i just couldn't get a good photo of this one (maybe because it was 2 am and i desparately wanted/needed sleep before a long, sleepy day of work. i was horribly crashing.)

Poster Collaboration by Glen Brogan / Bobby O'herlihy / Edwin Vazquez / Chogrin
