Rex's Last Stand (2011)


A giant fossil sea monster found in the Arctic and known as "Predator X" had a bite that would make T-Rex look feeble, scientists said on Monday. "This one is more like it could crush a Hummer," said evolutionary biologist Greg Erickson from Florida State University.

Chris Runyan

Chris Runyan, my longtime good friend and bandmate, passed away last night.

Chris was the most creatively gifted person I have ever known -- equal parts musician, writer, and artist.

His guitar playing would sometimes literally take my breath away. His paintings continue to move me -- mysterious, ironic, enigmatic -- unafraid of confronting ideas and social commentary.

My life has been far richer for having met and known him.

A Chris Runyan Sampler:

Here are some shots of the Malls, and a few digital scans of some of Chris' paintings. The scans don't do his artwork justice. The colors really pop in the paintings, and much of the texture and attention to detail cannot be seen.
