It was such a pleasure to create this painting for Gallery 1988's "Is This Thing On?" Comedians Tribute show this February 20th.
8.5 x 11" | Acryla gouache on Arches watercolor paper | framed + signed | $600
I can't tell you enough how the photograph and the scan
DO NOT DO the NEON of the paints justice at all!
This piece just GLOWS in person (thank you Acryla)
I asked to do one of my all-time favorite shows, Mystery Science Theater 3000, since lately I'm rewatching lots of the episodes while simultaneously working on Pirates of Mars volume 2 comic pages.
So it seemed like a good time to capitalize on recent interests/work merging.
Fans of the show will notice that this is Mike's silhouette. I think he's my favorite host, but that's like comparing Oreos and Fudge Stripe cookies, they are both wonderful.
I thought maybe it would be nice to do a recruitment poster for Gizmonic Institute and use this painting as the base. Will have prints available soon!
Please enjoy some retro space art that I looked at for this piece, as well as the opening for MST3K seasons 5 (which is when Joel leaves and Mike takes over ep. #512 mitchell - what no I'm not a super fan at all)
It is also an homage to an old DC comics series called "Mystery in Space", and "Planet Comics" which both had super rad cover art.
I meant to change "Mystery IN Space" to "OF space" but honestly forgot, haha
