If you didn’t get a chance to grab any of my pieces from the 3B Show but wanted to, you kinda hit the jackpot. Got a good deal on those 3 prints. Let me know if you are interested. $15 each or all 3 for $30 plus tax & shipping. Not too shabby.
Enjoy The Pop
I just realized I didn’t put this video from BTTF.com on the site yet. It’s pretty outstanding.Â Thanks again Steve, it was great meeting you.
May 5th at first seemed so far away, but it came and went. The whole night seemed like it was about 10 minutes long. Thanks to everyone who made the long haul up to Venice. Thanks to Oscar for grabbing the folks from BTTF.com to get me an interview. Thanks to Steve Czarnecki for hooking it up on the BTTF website. It was awesome to finally meet the curator Joseph, AKA Chogrin, thanks for letting me a part of 3B, I keep wondering what 3 movies could be done next year. I really hope to do more shows with him and the talented group at the Autumn Society. I got asked to be a part of their next show “Shell Shock”, in Philadelphia. It’s themed to the one and only TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. I’ve wanted to be in a Gallery 1988 show since I first checked it out at the 2nd Crazy For Cult on Melrose in 2008. I hope this is the first of many more shows like this for me. They always have the best collection of Pop Artists, each with their own style and vibe. I love everything about it. A truly, most excellent evening.
It was going to be hard to top a show like last years’s 3G. ( Ghostbusters, Gremlins & Goonies ) As a fan of all 3 of those movies and a fan of Gallery 1988 this show was a blast and a real inspiration for me to crank out some art in the following year. So the second I heard about this years 3B show I got a little excited, not just because I’m a huge fan of Back to the Future, Bill & Ted’s and Beetlejuice, but because i knew i needed to be a part of this. Luckily The Autumn Society thought so too. I am so stoked to be a part of 3B. I really hope everyone gets out to Venice to check out the all the art that these people brought together. If you can’t wait until May 5th to check out a sneak peak of some of the artwork that will be on display, hop in you virtual DeLorean and/or phone booth and check out The Autumn Society‘s website.
As for my art in the 3B show, I went the pin up route. Why not, right? I hope you like them. The first one featured Jennifer, Marty’s girlfriend from the original Back to the Future. Not that I dislike Elizabeth Shue, but I just think the first one was hotter. I call this painting “Oh La La”.
The 2nd entry was for someone a little random but very memorable. It’s a diptych of our friend who was cut in half from what I have to assume was a magician’s saw trick gone bad. I call my Beetlejuice entry “Hack Job”.
And as for my “Bill & Ted’s” entry, I have this double pin up of the two princesses from the Renaissance period that Rufus brought back to our most excellent heroes. I was playing with the idea of what would life for these two hotties be like if they got to live in San Dimas in the 80’s. But the part about this painting that I had a really good time with just was the icons for each of the fellow time travelers along the boarder.
After checking out just some of the kick ass entries that the other artists have turned in, I am convinced this show will blow people away. Even more so if you kinda like these 3 flicks. And if you love these 3 flicks like I do, then it is certainly not to be missed. I’m really excited and proud to part of such a talented group. Thanks to those who let me be a part of it. See you in Venice!!!
