Preparing for the Odditarium's Grand Re-Opening.

Portrait of a Drinking Town.
12x24.  Oil on canvas.
Unbeknownst to the wider world, your man in the field, Whalehead King, has been hard at work recreating and reviving his Odditarium.  The canvas above is one of the first products of it.

What is the Odditarium?  It is part cabinet of curiosities, part laboratory, part atelier, part cosmodrome, part gallery, and part museum.  Long time fellow travelers will remember the original Odditarium in its little storefront on West Street.  It is Yippee the Whale was born and raised.

Yippee made the transition to New Orleans very nicely...
Yippee, the Five-Star Whale.
Stocked with paintings I've been working on since January, as well as saint's medallions, books, voodoo paraphernalia, maps, notes, and documentary evidence, the Odditarium is about to open for business.

Another example:
The Pearl Rosary.
12x24.  Oil on Canvas.
I need to work on my photography skills.  I can't seem to master the focus.  All in good time.  We are working out the kinks.

Stay tuned.
Balaenius Rex!
