My TV viewing of choice is either the Syfy channel or one of the Discovery Channels, History Channels, ID etc... I happened to be watching something on Discovery and ran across an ad for the new Bear Grylls TV series Escape From Hell. What do you know, it has a striking resemblance to my character which was drawn almost 15 years ago, and more specifically my limited edition sculpture titled "The End is Near." That just goes to show you that nothing on the internet is safe. Good luck Bear!

Let the painting begin! I Just finished casting 10 pre-orders for the limited edition resin kit titled "The End is Near." I'm still working on the packaging, but should have the final kit ready for shipping next week. If you're interested in purchasing one email me at art@allanlinder.com. I am only making 20 copies and then the molds will be destroyed. The retail price is $99 + shipping. If you missed what this is all about, start here.

Don't worry, I didn't forget about you. The basement studio I share with another talented artist was in desperate need of a clean out. (this is his side of the room) Sometimes you have to step away from the computer and focus on what's real. Anyway, these are the before shots of what we had to deal with. There was a lot of work to be done, including getting rid of an 18th Century coffin, moving all of my 100 or so paintings, and a room full of old silicone molds and sculpture.

It took a few weeks to repack everything and just to move stuff around.

I'll post some follow up photos of the work done down here soon. Stick around for more.

Obviously a bunch of unloved stretchers.

I also re-visited many of my old paintings that I haven't seen in years. Stored away in plastic, bubble wrap and cardboard, I had to let some of them out for a little while.

Part of a "Shock and Awe" series I did during wartime, which is pretty much all the time nowadays. (After Picasso)

Abstract album cover art.

Maybe i'll leave this one under the plastic sheets.
