Bad Dads 2: Needle in the Hay..

This is a print for the upcoming Spokeart "Bad Dads 2" show opening Oct. 30 in San Francisco.
Its a 18x24", 4-color silk screen, edition of 40.
The print is based on the Wes Anderson classic "The Royal Tenenbaums" and is entitled "Needle in the Hay.."
The print explores Richie's struggle as he comes to terms with being true to his feelings, no matter the consequence. The piece explores the parallell between Richie confronting his feelings in personal relations and the liberation of Mordecai.
Later in the film we see an older Mordecai return to Richie. Both Mordecai and Richie, wiser and truer.
As you can see one of the layers is printed in metallic gold. These will be made available in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Spokeart's Bad Dads 2

A few months ago I was asked to participate in the upcoming sequel to Spokeart's hit Bad Dads
show from Fall 2010.
I chose to do a print which focused on a personal favorite Wes Anderson movie The Royal
I wanted to explore and illustrate the results of these characters in the pursuit of their desires.
How in some cases the truth set them free. Which is why I decided to include Mordecai. Richie
setting Mordecai free is as much a representation of his independence as Richie slitting his wrists
or confronting Margoux, Royal and Eli with his true feelings.
Anyway...more to come:)

Sketches! Upcoming!

Just uploaded a lot more sketch/concept art to my Flickr account.
Check them out. You might be surprised!
