So, just to
bore thrill my captive readers a bit more, I’ve decided to post my completed ‘Houdini Project’. It has changed slightly from before, after some general abuse and just a tiny bit of fire damage (pretty much just a standard weekday around here).
Anyway, tune in again tomorrow for something different-ish. And remember, only you can prevent Houdini fires. Or… something like that.
About this image: charcoal drawing – digitally colored, distressed and mounted in 8″x10″ frame… thing.
Tell him to quit staring at my soul.
He just won’t listen.
Not his best trick. 🙂
He is so awesome! It’s hard to see just how cool this is in 2D. I wish everyone could see it at all angles like I can!
It’s creepy in so many dimensions! 🙂
I agree w/ Annabelle — I wish your blog was in 3D so we could all enjoy your work in all its eye-popping glory!
Another magnificent piece, Inky! Love it!!
Hahaha! I’m working on it… might be a while, though!
Thank you so much, Dishy!
PS: would you open an Etsy shop or something already so we could buy some of this greatness?!
I’m not sure I could do that to my readers! 🙂
Great work once again. The frame looks like he’s locked inside a metal box waiting to do an escape trick. His eyes are still creepy
Thank you, Tony!
He does look a little creepy – hopefully he doesn’t break out! 🙂
he’s following me wherever i move!!
It must be part of the act…
Cool. It looks like a fragment from a circus poster.
Thanks, S.E. –
that’s kinda’ what I was going for, so I’m glad to hear that! 🙂
OMG, I hope he can’t get out 😦
I made sure those ‘bolts’ were pretty tight…
Looks good! Is this that fake rusted metal paint again? I really like that. You just paint it on wood strips or something?
You got it, sir! I did use wood as a ground here, but you can use the paint on many different surfaces… it’s a lot of fun! 🙂
I truly love this picture. I would put it up in my home at the top of stairs and when my enemies reach the top Houdini will lock them in place with his hypnotic stare. And that’s when I jump out and push them down the stairs. ‘You just got Houdini’ed, bee-atch!’
But seriously, how do I get this picture?
Thanks so much, G.G.!
Houdini Home Security… I ‘likes’ it! 🙂
I can’t stop thinking about this picture. Houdini’s gaze has exerted some hypnotic hold on me. I want to put this picture in my home and hypnotize guests to my own nefarious ends. Are you selling this picture? Seriously.
That’s very kind of you to say, G.G. – WOW!
While anything/everything is for sale, it takes me way to long to make a piece (and then I get all emotional/needy and fall in love with it) so things run on the ‘spensive side…
‘Houdini’ is 8x10x1.5″ deep (I would let it go for a bit less than an iphone in the U.S. market 🙂 )
If you have any questions please feel free to comment here or e-mail: email@example.com
I can understand growing attached to something after spending so much time working on it. I felt the same way when I sold one of my kids. I’m sure the iPhone price is an appropriate price. I’ll try and convince my wife to sell her phone and use the Houdini pic as a communication alternative to allow her to commune mentally with the world of the spirits.
Who ya’ gonna’ call?! 🙂
I like the effect you’ve used here but think I prefer the black and white image
Thanks much, N.M. –
I’m glad you liked the original – I was kinda’ proud of it. 🙂
BTW did you notice the design on Google today of Houdini? They stole your idea
Hmmm… it’s not showing up on mine for some reason (probably just part of the trick)! 🙂
Hmmm… Maybe it’s only on the Australian Google
I had a hunch that might be the case…
Hey Tony – Houdini is up on Google here today…
it must have been a time-zone thing. I should have checked on his birthday before I posted mine… it would have been a lot more appropriate!
