Welcome to Sean's Gallery.
My name... Sean Patrick Kennedy. You can't get much more Irish than that. : - ) The Irish have always been well known as artisans, starting even before the time of the Celtic Monks who "illuminated" biblical and ancient Celtic texts. The Irish also take pride in their work. So, as I present these photos of my artwork on the Internet, I hope you take as much pleasure in seeing them as I have had in creating them.
In 1995 I got my first computer and began using Windows 95-Microsoft Paint©. My first pictures were a little rudimentary and flat, but over time I became more proficient. Several of my colleagues at work saw my "MS Paint" works and began calling me the "Paint God". Anyway, the nickname
stuck, and I used it for my firsty URL: www.paintgod.com
. This caused some people to consider the site name
"blasphemous" and I changed the URL to www.seansgallery.com
. I do not have all the MS Paint bitmaps converted to JPG format yet, but when they are posted you can judge for yourself.
I have been fascinated by color, shape, form, and texture from my earliest memory. I can, and have, drawn just about anything. I have done portraits, newspaper ads, T-shirt designs, club and company logos, RPG character sketches, and various other commissions. My favorite subjects however are portraits, fantasy art, and women. You'll see a lot of what I can do just by browsing the pages in this site.
Eventually, I hope to have every bit of my art posted here. You'll find a lot of different kinds of art here. Computer art done in MS Paint© or 3D renderings done in Lightwave 3D©; and digital photos of my hand drawn sketches, original paintings, and original drawings. When you are perusing the gallery of original artwork, please keep in mind that most of the drawings and paintings are an original size of 18" x 22".
Believe it or not, that's not all. I also have other interests. Among them are:
Role-Playing Games (RPG's):
I have been playing Dungeons and Dragons© (in one form or another) since 1979. I have also played Champions©, Dr. Who©, Paranoia©, Palladium©, Traveller©, Snits Revenge© (don't ask), Star Trek: The Role-Playing Game©, and several others of my own creation.
Science Fiction (Movies & TV):
Some of my favorites are the Star Wars© series, the Star Trek© series, 2001: A Space Odyssey©, 2010©, the Alien© series, Babylon 5©, Deep Space 9©, Voyager©, Star Trek: The Original Series©, Star Trek: The Next Generation©, Sliders©, etc.
Science Fiction and Fantasy Books:
My favorite authors are Robert Heinlein, Isaac Azimov, Tad Williams, Robert Jordan, Stephen R. Donaldson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Chris Claremont, J.R.R. Tolkien, Sterling E. Lanier, and Stephen King.
I love to camp out in the summer. My favorite spot is out in the Great Redwoods near the pacific coast.
Baking and cooking:
My wife calls me the "Cookie Man". I make a mean Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip cookie and an even better baklava! (The wife says, "Don't forget to mention you make the BEST Oatmeal Lace cookies in the world!)
