The Hanging Gardens

A new surreal fantasy landscape by Myke Amend

New Wallpaper: The Ruins 1280×800

This piece is somewhat based on my collaborative work with Bethalynne Bajema … That 30 foot x 10 foot mural we have sitting in our garage awaiting a studio space to display it in. The mountain city-scape in this picture is *heavily* influenced by her creations, as well as my desire to see them as […]

Full Steam Ahead

This piece was done earlier this year in pencil on bristol board; It was my intention to color all of these after the World Steam Expo, but one thing led to another and – well, I finally have this once all colored up.

Colour from Space

An experiment in color, recently completed as a commission for Mike Skoog, wherein he asked if I could do something small enough for his music room, and more colorful than my standard muted palettes.

Big Framing Adventure

A little step by step on my night framing of framing till dawn for this large painting, using recycled/upcycled lumber.

Sorry Charlie

He came to the surface world, wondering where all the food had gone, but there were no fish to be found on land; There was however an abundance of two legged meat-things

Some Day I Will Never Grow Up

The original was painted on a wood panel cabinet I hand-made for the purpose of doing this painting. I’ll be finishing up the cabinet when I return home.. I can’t tell you what I’ll be filling the cabinet with – but when the construct is done, I will have had a lot of fun making things to fill it with.

Shades of Things to Come

A month back, I did a cover image for the Gatehouse Gazette, my second cover for them. The Gatehouse Gazette being a black and white publication, with a standard of using line-art for the covers, I decided to do the piece in pen and ink. Though not exactly an expressive and creative masterpiece by any […]

Lift Off Show in Alhambra, CA Jan 9th thru Feb 1

Today, I sent off three giclees to Gallery Nucleus for the “Lift Off!” art show, adding subtle miniature new artworks within each piece including (but not limited to) added airships, additional polar bears, bottles of rum, additional cephalopods, brightened constellations and other details in order to make each giclee its own unique piece of art.

Desert Shadows – Now Available (in my store)

I reached the point where I *wanted* to add “just a little bit more”, but my instincts were telling me that might be detrimental to the cause and I called it “done”… typically, as one learns over thousands of years of banishment to Earth, this is the point where one more brush stroke equals “overworked”…
