The Cold Comedy Concoction
acrylic on canvas
25 x 26 inches

I painted this portrait as a publicity image for Stark Raving Theatre’s production of The Cold Comedy Concoction. It was one of four paintings that I created for Stark for their 2004-2005 season, which also included Faust. Us., The Vespiary, and Kiss It! These paintings were the beginnings of a direction that I didn’t actually follow until two years later. In 2006, I started including background elements in my paintings for Swollen.
