Red Dot Auction – Ragtime Ruin

This year I had the pleasure of contributing to The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity’s annual fundraiser, the Red Dot Auction. All the artists receive the same size square canvas to work with. It’s an anonymous silent auction, so nobody knows who they’re bidding on until after the fact!

My piece was called “Ragtime Ruin” and depicted the tragic aftermath of the classic cartoon, “One Froggy Evening.” Old Michigan J. is a little terrifying when you consider the implication of his immortality.

I had a lot of fun breaking out my oil paints and designing a deco-inspired poster. I normally work in a really high key, so it was fun to push myself with a darker color range.

The painting went home with Ben Olson of 3 Monkeys & Aardvark Studios in Schaumburg, Illinois.
