Never Get Out of the Boat…

Back in Early December, I was asked to produce a print for the always-excellent-to-deal-with TommyGood.com to promote the Astor Theatre’s screening of Apocalypse Now coming up in February.  The Astor is in Australia, and I’m stuck here in dumb ‘ol Austin.  Sigh.  My artwork goes all the cool places, and I’m here.

The Vietnam War Movie Memorial

I was asked to participate in an artshow that is also a fundraiser for a documentary about VHS art, and this is the piece I created for it. VHS will always hold a special place in my memory. I remember my family renting a VCR for birthdays and holidays from the local grocery store, along with some tapes. I always asked for the same tapes: Tron, Temple of Doom, Condorman, Black Hole, and maybe some Transformers cartoons. I used to work at a Suncoast Video when I was about 21, and I remember when DVD’s first came into the store. Here we were sitting in a store full of VHS tapes, with our little section of public-domain-title DVDs that were the first to market. The whole VHS medium was dead and it wouldn’t even know it for another 5 years or so. And now, even the rental culture is almost dead, and DVDs and Blue-ray will be gone in a few years in favor of streaming video. Strange times.

‘Resister’ print for Black Mirror.

I was asked to participate in the ‘Black Mirror’ literary/art book coming out in Australia next year. One of the book’s main thrusts is the melding of art and story. Strangely enough, my friend, writer Dave Justus proposed the same idea to me a few months earlier- he’d write a short, evocative passage, and I would create an image based on that writing. So when ‘Black Mirror’ came calling, I saw it as an opportunity to act on it. I liked the idea, as it would push me out of my comfort zone, and force a collaboration of two different disciplines, art and writing. Dave’s poem follows after the jump-

“Bad Dads” Wes Anderson Art Show Prints

The brand new LoPo Gallery in San Francisco is opening with a Wes Anderson Tribute show entitled ‘Bad Dads’.

Being a giant fan of Anderson’s films, I was honored that they asked me to contribute to the show.  I designed not one, not two, but FIVE prints for the show.  I originally was just going to do one or two, but once I started rolling, I got laser-focused on doing the entirety of Anderson’s live-action films.  And, here they are in the order that I created them-

Blade Runner print for the Astor in Australia-

I was commissioned again to do a poster for an amazing film showing at the Astor Theatre in Australia.  TommyGood.com is the on-line retailer for these, and they just went live on their site on Wednesday.  I will have my copies for sale in a few, but they do still have some left, and I highly suggest you go over there to pick it up, as I don’t have many at all.  This print measures 12×25, with 5 colors, including a gloss overlay for the rain effect, edition of 230.  There is a glow in the dark version as well, limited to 90 copies.

Blade Runner is by far my favorite film, and it was great to visit the imagery again in print format, and this time for an actual screening.

Steer and Queer

Nakatomi’s Tim Doyle was asked to participate in a Movie Poster exhibit in Canada-

Which clearly means something in French-talk. Everything we know about French culture, we learned from Simone in Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.

BUT- Doyle’s print for the show (pictured at top) is currently for sale at the website VON SCARAMOUCHE, and won’t be for sale on Nakatomi until after the show comes down (assuming there’s any left at all) at the end of October.

Never, EVER do this.

So, about 18 months ago,  I did this album cover for a local band-

The front cover was drawn by me, but just about every detail of the image was dictated by the band. Yes, yes they did ask for a drawing of Truck-a-saurus sodomizing a 1983 Dodge conversion van.

The back cover was up to me, and I drew the only slightly more sedate image of the now ‘well loved’ van. Accompanying the van, just to the left, is the completely evil Pickles the Cat. Pickles might be known to some fans as the cat driving the El Camino in ‘The Camino Cats’ print.
