Here's another new one - still with wet paint! Based on the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, called "Relapse". One neon sign was going to read "Fried Foods", but I thought I'd be good :wink: .

Nice! I love the way it's cropped, really sinister :)
What do you paint with? That looks awesome.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Sanaril- I use Signpainter's 1-Shot enamel on canvas. It's what I started out using, and I'm comfortable with the consistency and colors, etc. Thanks again!

damn that stuff is just soooo clean and crisp!

At first glance it feels like a photo collage, but as you look more you can see the painterly aspects of it, very nicely done!
