This is my newest piece, entitled “YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT”, acrylic on a 16″x20″ stretched canvas.
I’ll be selling the original for $300 with free shipping in the continental United States.
The origins of this painting comes from one faded night I drew the foundations of an abstract “futurism” inspired concept by watching one of my favorite internet programs.
I was simply drawing what I saw as the video played and was barely looking at where my hand was at on the canvas.
I wasn’t sure what to do with it for a moment until I became a huge fan of Jose Andres.
I then decided to model the different color blocks after the interior of various fruits.
Any reasonably large art print purchases of this piece I will donate 20% of my profits to “World Central Kitchen” which was started by Jose Andres.
Also here is a fun little contest. If you can guess what I was watching and drawing that set the foundations of this piece, I will send you a free art poster print of this painting (as long as you are living within the Continental United States)
Be sure to go to contacts on this page and let me know what your guess is!
On this episode: more tunes and movies, a discussion on what laws should or shouldn’t be broken, and how psychedelic’s saved Mike Tyson’s life.

Holy wow! It’s been a minute.
Not so sure why I get so distracted by posting on other social media and then I don’t post here.
Once again I’m here trying to correct that and get back in the habit. So life has been busy with
GAMMA PAW activity. As of right now all the bass and my vocals are recorded for our 3rd EP.
There’s a chance we’ll go back in and retake some stuff if it ends up not clicking with the whole recording
but either way it’s great to have that done and taken care of. Now while Shockey works on his vocals and
guitar I can turn my focus towards some “Cloud Faculty” and “Fa Koshka” things. Things are moving quickly
so hopefully there is a GAMMA PAW release soon and some things to announce on those other fronts.
Here is two pet portraits that have gotten done over the last little bit, Painting has slowed down since I’ve
been working on pen and ink stuff and setting up my print operations. I’ll also repost what I’m changing about
pet portraits in 2022
“So I mentioned this in some other spots but I suppose I’ll make the announcement on my social media accounts.
in 2022 I’m going to be upping my Pet Portrait prices to $300 with free shipping in the continental United States.
I’ve had some recent commissions where they were asking me why I wasn’t charging more.
Obviously as things roll along and I get more skilled at my craft and prices for other things inflate around me it’s wise to hike prices a bit every now and again.
And here is the most recent “The Jacob Wayne Show” for your ear holes.
What a crazy week. It started off with us mixing and mastering our 2nd release as GAMMA PAW
ThE HEXXUS EP
We decided to keep it exclusively at BANDCAMP for just a little over a week. That way people that support
our music endeavors have an opportunity to show their support for our project.
Then, soon enough, the EP will be up on all the usual streaming services, we rehearse for a little bit and maybe throw a video together,
and then we get to work on the 3rd EP.
We had another solid episode of “The Jacob Wayne Show”
And we enjoyed the Super Bowl on Sunday while watching “Two Bears, One Sapp” as well as playing Star Wars “Monopoly”
As stated above we’ll be taking on some rehearsals and I’ll also be dipping my brush and getting back to work on painting after a bit of a “different work” break.
Well it was the last week of my yearly least favorite month, January.
RIP to Cloris Leachman, and if I forgot last week to Larry King. Phil Spector? Not so much, but thank you for the “Wall of Sound” thing.
Other than that it was a pretty straight forward week of work and wrapping up recording on GAMMA PAW’s second EP, “THE HEXXUS EP”
I’m super excited for all of you to hear this new set of songs. It truly feels like the strangest and yet most well produced thing I’ve been
a part of. Ironically enough it was all a home studio effort with my friend and bandmate Brandon Shockey. Updates soon on a release date.
The only other thing is a few substantial print sales came through which is nice and many of them were of “Mittens”, so any of my profits
from that go directly to “Meals on Wheels” here in Fort Collins. Here’s an image of “Mittens” on a throw pillow, seems pretty cozy to me.
Here’s to February and the continued rise of chillness I feel like I’m seeing around the U.S., it’s slow and hard to pick up on, but I think it’s there!
What an interesting week.
The Inauguration finally happened! And other than the poet laureate Amanda Gorman who was the true winner of the Inauguration. Another person there that won the internet was good ol’ Grandpa Bern!
the image of him with his mask and mittens took the internet by meme storm and not long after Bernie Sanders put the image on a sweater on his site and sold them to raise funds for Meals on Wheels in Vermont.
I thought that was fantastic and a great way to take advantage of online memedom so I painted my own version of the image and any profits I make from it will go to Meals on Wheels here in Fort Collins.
If you click on the image below you can check out your print options and contribute to this cause if you see fit.
I also completed the first painting of 2021, “Welcome to the Jazz, Forrest”. This was a nice large commission that I received from my friend, business partner, bandmate, and co-conspirator Kelin Gibbons.
The first GAMMA PAW stickers arrived and they’re looking awesome. If you’re interesting in representing the band swing into Fort Collins, Colorado and we’ll get you some free stickers, or order a piece of art from me and I’ll throw in some stickers for free!
The 2nd EP is almost completely recorded and then we’ll be getting ready for streaming soon, I can’t wait for ya’ll to hear it.
I spent the end of the week recording a film commentary “The Jacob Wayne Show” where we got into the Sci-fi film “Mission to Mars”. As well as applying for some interesting art projects that I’ll stay quite about for the time being.
Last but not least,
“Here’s a size comparison of some recent art work as well as a chance to show of this sweet System of a Down hoodie that showed up after a long COVID shipping wait.
Here’s to getting into the 2nd week of Biden and things getting a little bit brighter as 2021 gets rolling.
My second art book arrived this last week.
“SUPER EGO SKYLARK”, a collection of all the paintings I did in 2020 along with some additional thoughts.
They are a bit pricey so keep that in mind but if you decide to pick one up certainly let me know, it’s always
wonderful knowing the work is getting out there.
We’re almost 2 days away from Trump being out of the White House for good and I tell you a can’t wait for that.
Other than waiting for some sort of absurd display of defiance by the “Proud Boys” or something similar it’s been
a pretty casual week. I helped some friends out with some work this week starting on Monday and the back and
forth about the Insurrection at the capital was very depressing. One person in particular was convinced that it had
to be all Antifa people and they couldn’t possibly be Trump supporters. Many minds were boggled.
Episode 19 of “The Jacob Wayne Show” is going to be up tomorrow at 6:00 AM MST. be sure to write us at [email protected]
if you have any topics you’d like us to discuss or there’s any thoughts or ideas you’d like to share about the show.
It’s no secret for those that know me but January is my least favorite month of every year. It truly is the Monday of Months.
A whole hell of a lot of nothing is going on. I’m still working my way slowly through a musical mushroom forest which will be
sweet when it’s finished but it’s certainly not a quick piece to complete.
Wish you all the best as we truly get rolling into 2021!
