Pulled Pork - second painting in the Pig series

...and here's piglet #2 (see the first one here).

i ended up sticking with just the Georgia state flag, as we'll be living in Savannah soon...

...unfortunately, i won't be starting these until after the move (all my supplies are packed, and the movers charge by the pound!)...

Pulled Pork - in memory of Piggly Wiggly

Fret not, Piggly Wiggly is here to stay - however, 37 stores, from Charleston to Savannah are heading for the chopping block this week (full story here)..., to me (currently in transit from Seattle to Savannah), Piggly Wiggly was as much part of the Southern landscape as boiled peanut roadside stands, cheer-wine delivery trucks and kudzu encased barns (Google it).

I'm working on a three part tribute series - 3 large (at least 4 foot) square wooden canvas paintings, honoring "the Pig"...'s a digital concept of the first one in the series.

Alas, one piglet was spared the sausage stuffer; store #101, Coligny Plaza,17 Lagoon Rd
, Hilton Head, SC 29928 (though, still an hour's drive from Savannah).

Horror Genre Car Photography series - #2 Silent Hill

i'm postponing my Texas Chainsaw Massacre shoot (May 2013) until my 3650 mile road trip from Seattle to Savannah in December - i'll be on location for authenticity...

...Konami's Silent Hill (the movie version by TriStar Pictures) - 1995 Mercedes Benz AMG E36 cabrio...

...if anybody has had the opportunity to visit Seattle during the month of October, they would be very familiar with morning fog regularly reducing visibility to 3 feet - to any cult horror video-game-gone-movie geek this would constitute a Silent Hill kinda day (sans the raining ash from the coal fires)... the right is the original image from a foggy October morning in Magnolia - almost good enough on its own...
