finished Ernest Ripper for 80's show

Here's a photo of my actual painting for the 80's show. I posted a sketch a little while back, but this is the finished version. All the color layers were cut out as stencils and spray painted on canvas. I did the background separately, then did the rest over it. The actual piece is a lot bigger and the colors are a lot brighter, I did the best I could w/ a photo of it.
EDIT:Here are all the stencil layers (if you click on it, you can see it better). The background was just sprayed blue, then the Ernest pattern repeated over it many times. Thanks!

Man, you're a king on stenciling. Everything looks exactly like your digital print! Can't wait to see this one upfront!

I look upon this picture and I gaze into the heart of madness... Nice work.

I can't wait to see this in person, and I would love to see pictures of the different stencils. On a side note, you ever seen Ernest Goes to Africa? I tried watching that a couple of months ago, got through about five minutes... Jim Varney would be spinning in his grave (had he not participated).

I edited my post and added the stencils in their layer pieces.

I saw Ernest Goes to Africa on TV a few months back. Honestly it's not as bad as I thought it was aside from the production value being way low. I don't think Ernest had a real bad movie, they were all so bad they were good.
