Koko el Mental

Well apologies first,  I had a very bad cold and cough the last 4 weeks really slowing me down so I kinda rushed this one to make it into a group show based on the four basic elements. This is not my best work but not my worst either, The Koko the clown character has always been a favorite of mine and I thought if I ever painted him it would have to be at least as weird as the old cartoons, so there ya go. I hope I can revisit this later and paint it up right.

    Looks terrific, Kevin! The original sketch too. Have fun at the show!

    Good finish! You say it’s NOT your best work, but in thinking of what might be your best, I think of your Tim Burton and David Lynch, which just had more “painting” on them. I think this piece is really wonderful, and only ’cause you imply it’s not finished, do I think of suggestions I’d make, but it’s not my project, you didn’t ask, and it’s not my place to say. Truly: I think you could use this piece as a launching-off point for a whole series.
