Spoof Pop Art of Austin Powers Mike Meyers

I’m really glad “The Love Guru” blew chunks because it would be next to impossible to work that movie in here. But who am I kidding, these are the 2 Mike Myers characters that he will always be known for. And maybe I am the only one, but I am so ready for an Austin Power’s 4. And it needs to take place in the early 80’s. Punk Rock scene of London, but i digress. I wanted to do something with Mike Myers that showed Wayne’s World & Austin Powers somehow in a mash up. There was a great Han Solo/Indiana Jones I saw recently and I think that lit a fire under me to knock this out. Thanks for the inspiration. William O’Neill. I know there has got to be a name for this piece but my brain is too fried at the moment. Anyone got any ideas?? Hope you think it’s excellent, …baby.

And just for the hell of it, here ya go.

SCHWING

Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with a good name for a painting. Not so much with this one. I kind of knew what it would be before I even started to paint it. It’s too ridiculous not to use. Anyway, if you are just joining us, this new painting of Cassandra from Wayne’s World is the 4th in a series I like to call “Sultry Sirens of the Silver Screen”. Take a gander at the pieces below to see what I am talking about. The Jennifer painting from Back to the Future got some good attention from being a part of the 3B show at Gallery 1988 in Venice, CA. And the  “Andy” painting was featured up in Astoria, Oregon as part of the Goonies show at Lunerboy. When this series started my idea was to get 12 of them and do a calendar. Well, only 8 to go i guess. So anyway, “Cassandra”, I am a fan of Tia Carrere.  That part “Ballroom Blitz” scene at the end of the first Wayne’s World always made me feel kind of funny, “like when you used to climb the rope in gym class”. I’m just not sure if she is worthy enough to be a part of this group of hot ladies from cult movies …NOT.

Hope you like this series, drop me a note below and let me know what you think.

Now sit back, relax and travel back to a time when Mike Myers was funny.
