A “Dangerous” Portfolio

Posted: April 21, 2021 in Uncategorized

I’ve decided to start posting some videos showing my process for some of my more pop art pieces. Since a lot of the people I admire from that realm have nicknames, I decided to use “Dangerous” Dave Weiss. Don’t worry, I don’t for a minute think I am dangerous. It’s kind of a joke. When I was a kid my dad would sometimes look at me and say, “If you had a brain you would be dangerous.” Please do not judge him for saying that. It was said out of exasperation because I was doing some pretty “brainless” things. Now you may look at my pieces and think some of them look a little dangerous. Actually they’re not really monsters, though some of them look pretty monstrous. They are creatures. I love to create these things, and at one point, I came to realize that there is a verse in the King James Bible that says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature…” I love creating creatures even more now, and while the intent of this work is not necessarily always to communicate the Gospel directly, it is created to help me connect to the world of art, a place where I feel called to minister. The following is a collection of my random pop-art weirdness. Please pray that I am able to connect in this world and to be salt and light.
