An annual event here in Detroit at Eastern Market, known as Flower Day... suddenly the 'Death' Flower SHINOHANA arises! Only Shinohana doesn't really want to hurt anybody, just wants to enjoy the day, and can't help being so frightening! This is the 10th painting I created for my Detroit Kaiju series.
The story goes.. a strange looking tentacled multi-eyed creature named Bulbozur, minding his own business on the dark side of the moon, and FWOOM!! He gets hit by some strange metal pod, and has no choice but to ZAP IT! Will this poor creature find peace? Will he follow the pod-transformed into space-weresolf MUNOKAM? Will this movie ever be made? Stay tuned... This is the 27th Detroit Kaiju painting I've done in the series.
Brush your teeth... and don't forget to floss! Don't eat too much sugar either! Otherwise, MUSHIBA will find you! This giant cotton candy mess of a monster is having a good time at the Michigan State Fair! The 8th painting I did in my Detroit Kaiju series.
It's your friendly neighborhood... giant blue electric monster GUSTRALEK! Oh, don't worry, he's just hangin' out in da hood, saying 'Hello' to all who pass by.. or run by for that matter! This is the 4th painting I did in my Detroit Kaiju series.
This one's personal.. I am literally haunted by these things, ever consuming my life, they work to prevent me from creating! As always, I resist! 'Those DAM Farodolites' are part robot, part tentacled monster, part laser tracker, and were created for The Detroit Artists Market Holiday Season!! My 24th painting in my Detroit Kaiju series.
Fa-la-la-la-laahh, Bahrumrah AAAAAHHHH!!! From a far away mysterious land, only appearing around 'The Holidays', a giant lizard like beast with many eyes, green and red scaly skin, whitish fur... it looks very much like a right jolly old elf from the North Pole! Not quite Santa Claus, not quite Krampus, it's BAHRUMRAH! Created for the 5th Annual 'Krampus Night' Holiday/Anti-Holiday Charity Event 'Krampus Night Detroit' held at The Tangent Gallery, this is the 25th painting done for my Detroit Kaiju series.
It's the greatest tail-gating megabeast of them all, Taigaraion!!! He's ready to support his home teams, and in a big way!!!! This giant sport-monster is the 20th painting from my Detroit Kaiju series.
The story goes.. a secret mission to the dark side of the moon, where an unknown astronaut encounters a strange looking tentacled multi-eyed creature, and FWOOM!! He gets hit with some weird beam energy, and transforms into the Giant Space Werewolf MUNOKAM! Will the astronaut be saved? Will he find his alien foe, BULBOZUR? Will this movie ever be made? Stay tuned... This is the 26th Detroit Kaiju painting I've done in the series.
Look, there he is! The One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Mover Surfer! This strange creature can't help himself, the People Mover is the perfect ride for him downtown! This is the 15th painting done for my Detroit Kaiju series.
As seen on TV (Detroit Public Televisions 'Detroit Performs')! This monster from space was created as a special reference to my 'sugar skull' sculpture I created for the Dia de Los Muertos event at the Imperial in Ferndale MI in 2014. You can see both in the video from the show (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9MYCNmT7tE&). This is the 19th painting done for my Detroit Kaiju series.
