I like this style, I never get bored from looking at it
I like the 3rd one most!
Mate this stuff is da bomb! Loving it. Pretty sure I have seen some of it before... like the gagged and blinded pencil drawing of the female on the first page.. maybe just internet de ja vous considering you don't live in the UK
R.I.P Frank Frazetta 1928-2010
On its way!
I seriously want to live in the worlds you create
Wow, great to get back from a fishing trip and find all of this positive response. Thank you. Dali allusions are kind but I'm unworthy. Do wish I could grow a mustache like that though. Belinda- Most of my work is done with acrylic with some pen in the drawings. Spectrum is a great book and I am happy to be in it. I juried the most recent, 17, which comes out in the Fall. Lots of great artmakers in this genre. Careful what you wish for pauscorpi, you may never leave.
Wow! I just love the work on this thread. I am writing a book and when I get to the illustration part I am going to return and call you guys. Thanks again.
Brilliant stuff, stunning. But what exactly is copper?
Thanks some more. Copper means on copper plates. The kind used for printmaking, etching, Vir.
Just another painting. It seems easier to post these as I do them rather than saving for a dump. Hope I'm doing the right thing. 8 x 10 inches on copper.

I think you would have rarely gone wrong. It shows in the works. I think its better to post one piece at a time, since the timeframe for watching the piece increases, when many pieces are posted, some paintings might just get overlooked because of something else.Hope I'm doing the right thing
So I hope you keep updating this regularly.
Taking bhanu's advice and posting as I do them. 3.5 x 3.5 inches on copper.
More work for the show.
"Elegant Eyewear Specialist"
I really like the backbone of the design on this one. Especially the structure on the eyewear.
Much love. And its good thing you are posting regularly, people need to see this stuff more often
Thanks again you guys. Good thing bhanu because I need to do this stuff more often.
Very good work.
I just so enjoy your posts Bcarman. Your Art is such that there are layers of interest and intent built into them. The latest is a case in point, in that I as a viewer now wonder at the delight that the maker had in designing and then making the glasses that are just for show, as they could not possibly work! That is just glorious. Very cool and the monocle on the little cup is a genius touch. Class!
We are remembered only by what we leave behind.
Looking at that pink ticket booth just makes me happy.
First you jump off the cliff and you build wings on the way down.
I really appreciate your thoughtfulness guys. I would love to get someone to build some of the glasses that I design. Maybe I could start a style thing.
Go go go go go go!!!!!!!!!I would love to get someone to build some of the glasses that I design. Maybe I could start a style thing.

Great works mr Carman,I visit your blog very often! Idon´t knew you´ve this gallery here!
I told you how much I like your work? Anyway...I love that update...Great!
I think your images could be concept for a Tim Burton's movie...
Do you know Chichoni? Do you like it?
Creative imagination to the nth degree, love them all.
Thanks again. I have people contacting me about doing animations. Someday, It's always someday, I'll have time to consider it. Right now I'm up to my armpits in shows and book stuff. Here are a couple of more small pieces. The light house thing was something that just kept haunting me. I almost never see something clearly before i paint of draw it but in this case it was different. Just kept showing up in my mind and sketchbook.
"Delivery by Pig"
Rediculously Brilliant!!! ALL OF IT!
More, even stranger, stuff for my upcoming show. Man this is really fun.
