Speed Racer

Every few months, we have an art show on Family Guy.  This time the theme was 'TV Show' so I chose speed racer which was my favorite show when I was 4 or 5.  I chose acrylic but I hadn't used it since college(10 years ago).  It was such a struggle and took a lot longer than I wanted but I am pretty happy with the outcome.  The sad thing was it only went up to $250 in auction. Next time, I am going to do 1 character in photoshop and spend no more than 1 hour. Take that, Family Guy Art Show Auction!! And bye bye speed racer painting.

That's awesome! I can't believe it sold so cheap! You should have nudged the bid up!

i'm sure it was the subject matter, not the execution
that limited the potential high bids!
looks great, buddy!
love to see you using real paint
none of this phony photoshop stuff.
keep it up!
