Little Ninja Card

Lately I've been buried in design work (gotta pay the bills!), but I had a quick chance to paint this little business card-sized ninja today. I'll be doing several more tiny paintings to bring down to LA next week to dish out to people, perhaps. Our trip is for fun, and hopefully I'll run into some cool artist folks while we're there if we're lucky. I'll be headed to Lynne Naylor's solo show at MModern Gallery on the 13th. Anyone else going?

2" x 3.5" cel vinyl acrylic on watercolor paper.

Thank you, kindly Sirs!

Patrick, don't worry. No friskets or cels were harmed in the making of this painting. All done with simple, layered brushwork.
