He's whimsical, irreverent, intelligent, and he has this uncommon ability to look like he's photobombing his own pics.
One of them, taken with a webcam, and posted last May caught my attention because of the size of his eyes and the shadows of his body... I knew I could do something with it. Here is the result.
The off axis is below.

A friend of mine attended Gay Days at Walt Disney World last year where a buddy took a pic of him dancing at a concert and sharing some quick love with his boyfriend in the heat of the moment. The original photo is much larger and out of focus, but cropped down to just these two figures, and with the slight canting of the camera to illustrate the crowd I think the composition gets a lot more interesting.
This is only the second time that the layers of a cutting are composed of different colors as opposed to shades of the same color. It was meant intentionally as a reference to the rainbow flag, but when completed, the finished work has the look of a thermograph - showing different levels of surface temperature. In that case, "Heat" seemed like a natural title.
The varied random cutouts of the heads of the crowd in the background and the performers on stage are some of the most complex and abstract I've ever done.
The off-axis, illustrating those details is below.

I'm not normally a fan of still life, but I think this is ultimately successful in conveying that same transparency, and I like the subtle hint of shadows around it.
I think it might be my most "art-y" piece to date.

This cutting measures 10"x20", and consists of a six layers, like all of my other blue pieces.
I really like how half of the model's face is in shadow, and the slightly diagonal line created by his head set slightly to the right and his abs set slightly to the left.
