Tiki Pin-ups from 2004.

... more from www.bigalart.com

I Dream of Tiki (upper left) was a piece created for the "Tiki Art Now" show at the Shooting Gallery in SF 2004.

Pin-up art from '03 & '04.

I've decided to take most of the pin-up work off of www.bigalart.com and move it over here.

One Night Stand X in San Francisco! Feb. 5-16

This image is included in the show catalog which is available at Blurb.com

Here's my artist statement which I believe is in the catalog:

Big Al's most recent work is inspired by the female form. Utilizing pen, brush, ink, watercolor and a variety of dry drawing media he creates his pieces live from todays modern pin-up girls, burlesque dancers, fetish models, roller derby girls and others capturing personality and character. His work blends a mix of figure drawing, caricature and pin-up. He's been an avid figurative artist most of his adult life. Attending life drawing sessions in Pleasanton, Livermore and beyond. In 2007 he attended alternative figure groups in Los Angeles, San Francisco (Dr. Sketchy's) and Sacramento (Pompsicle).
