In 2011 Elektrik Milkbath Press published a book called MAD HATTERY--It contains the witty and wonderful poetry of Marge Simon and over 50 color plates of my "hat paintings". 2010 and 2011 was a prolific period. Inspiration from Pop Surrealism, Dark Pop Surrealism and "Big Eye Art" prompted me to paint a series of girls (and one man) wearing hats. I normally painted the images on small canvases, ranging from around 11 x 14 inches to 8 x 8 inches. Marge added her sensational poetry in collaboration with most of these paintings. I'm adding a few here. Others can be found at Red Bubble, Fine Art America, Imagekind, Facebook (fan page) and EBSQ. Most are available as greeting cards, fine art prints and posters.
Today Marge and I continue to collaborate. We have several series in progress; vampires, zombies, elves and fairies. I usually paint and draw in between writing fiction.
