C.R.A.P Print: The Inspiration
Hey guys and gals! Thanks for checking out the site and leaving the super cool comments! Nice to know that people are still coming by and checking out the stuff, so I'll try my best in posting new stuff.(Or at least post something. ;)) I finally received my copies of the Family Guy C.R.A.P art piece I contributed to last year. Chris Jackson up at ACME did a wonderful job in producing these prints. So my hats off to the guys up there for doing this. So my theme for the last two posts have been about process. So what the heck does this have to do with it you ask? Well, this piece got me interested again in creating "robotic" elements to my paintings, something that I've been delving in and out of the last few years. And having to draw hundreds of pages of X-Wings and AT-AT walkers the last few years has kept me in that "technical" mindset, at least subconsciously. A lot of my compositions, I'm noticing, has that feel of "mechanism" to them. Didn't really notice that until now....hmm... kinda wierd. Anyways, I was commissioned to do a piece for Iron Man particularly because of this piece. And a big thanks to my pal Jason Weitzner for showcasing a lot of my work out there, so thank you sir! So on retrospect, all those weekends sit bent over the dining table working on this thing was a cool thing. Sigh. Hard to believe it was already over a year ago. I guess time flies when you're drawin'. Have a great week bloggers!
