First preliminary work on the new oil of a young guy holding a mahi mahi. Have more work to make the face look right as I had to reconstruct it. He's wearing sunglasses in the photo.

First love was drawing Batman at 6years old. By 12, it was all airplanes. So a couple years ago, I did this oil of a B-26 with my own custom nose art. It's called Bonnie Blue and there is a subliminal image within the image.
