I do these pieces in the "Neo-Retro" style because I really enjoy the process. And they are really fast to produce. Speed of production has always been a problem for me. My mentors worked very laboriously on their own image making and when I was in college the fact that a project required fifty hours to create was some kind of wacko (in retrospect) badge of honor. My acrylic paintings still are very labor intensive, but that labor is one of love, to be sure. But it's still nice to be able to make an image quickly that still has visual strength, and it's great to mix up the media once in a while. Keeps us fresh in all areas of endeavor.
