About the Art:Two questions for you:1. Are you a Mad Magazine fanatic? or 2. Do you have fond memories of working with Weird-Ohs as a kid? For those of you who answered yes to question 1, welcome to the world of Alfred E. Newman. How accurate is that painting of him on the Joker? But there is more than that to notice. Take a look at the faces on the kings and queens.
For me, it is a challenge. Can I do this? Can I paint in oil paint to look like a Crayola mark on a coloring book? Can I a newspaper to look like a newspaper? Or plastic to look like plastic? - DB
Take a close look at the wording on the glue tube! There are other things like that as well, and you will notice one at a time over the years.
These are not photos. They are limited edition reproductions on canvas of original oil paintings by Doug Bloodworth.
DOUG BLOODWORTH enjoys evoking the viewer’s nostalgic feelings of one’s childhood, be that in comic books, games we played, or our comfort foods.
In 1974 Doug earned a degree in Commercial Arts and went on during the early stages of his career to work in several genres of the art world. From painting caricatures to billboards, Doug’s pursuits steered him towards the mastery of fine art techniques and a working mentorship with Marv Gunderson, the exclusive artist for the Marlboro brand. Painting iconic works on billboards all over the country was a highlight early on in his career and he still draws from the inspiration and lessons learned during the tour.
Doug has since been commissioned to paint two 30’ x 200’ murals at Tampa’s Tropicana Field, a project which took six months to complete and inspired him to focus solely on painting fine art pieces.
The influence of paper printed comics from eras past is still tangible in Doug Bloodworth’s photorealism. Combined with decades of artistic technique and the personal connection offered by his custom works, Doug’s collectability is rapidly growing. He is now recognized in the international art community as one of the premiere photorealist painters of this period.
