this is inky the DNA manipulator. i don't know what that means. i don't think the guy that requested this knows what it means either. it's actually for a friend of mine, doug. doug and our other friend, will, like to play a game at bars that they've named "word salad". word salad is actually a medical term to describe how people with neurological or mental disorders may talk. these ridiculous boys will go up to complete strangers and try to ramble off nonsense statements for as long as they can. it's actually surprisingly hard to not make sense. and surprisingly fun to see a stranger's response to complete incoherency. anyway, inky the DNA manipulator was something randomly spouted from doug's mouth while playing that "game". now it's a painting.

a guy named Lisandro asked me to paint his name. though as i was painting it, i thought it was a female name. after looking it up today, i've realized it's a male name. so maybe i shouldn't have painted it purple in very feminine cursive letters with flourishes. and maybe that's why Lisandro didn't respond when i emailed a picture of the finished painting and asked for his mailing address.

when naming the file for this image, i typed in "fluttershy.jpg" and i got a message saying "A file with that name already exists. Do you want to replace it?" this is how i know i've done a lot of paintings. while creating this, i didn't even realize i had already painted it once before.

a little over a month ago, the guy in this painting commissioned a series of three from me. he wanted portraits of his wife and two kids. after he gave them to his wife, she contacted me to paint the husband. i had some house paint laying around so i drove to their house and started going to town on him with a paint roller. the wife informed me that she actually wanted a painting OF him. so after correcting the miscommunication, here's the result. though, the shirt you see in the portrait is ruined now.

i have one of these. i don't think mine is decorated, though. i can't tell because it's covered in muscle and blood and skin.
