Monster Apocalypse

LA's, The Hive gallery, teamed up with the local Piranha Shop for this monster group show last night.

I decided to do a Bride of Frankenstein/Frida Khalo mash up for the show. My mom introduced me to her work when I was a kid. It was a book about her life with tons of photos of her and her paintings. Frida has got to be one of the first female punk rock, anti-establishment artists to come onto the art scene. You have to respect someone that isn't afraid to put their guts onto a canvas like she did.  Plus, she owned a monkey.

Frida is also on my short list of people I'd like to party with. When someone asks, "Want to go party with that crazy artist chick that owns a monkey?", the only answer to give is, "How soon can we get there?"

A Tribute to B Movies

Title: Robbie vs the ID Monster
Size: 12"x 12"
Medium: Acrylics on Canvas

Here's a new piece for LTD gallery's latest group show. It's Robbie the robot from Forbidden Planet. His first appearance. The reflection on his face is the ID monster. You can see it here at the two minute mark. Is it a reflection, or is Robbie confronting his own inner demons? Hmmmmmm.

It would have been waaay easier to do this FX in photoshop, but what's the fun in that? I'd rather try learning  with paints. No net, baby!

It's also funny to watch Forbidden planet because Leslie Nielson is in it and I keep expecting him to crack a joke, a la Airplane. Oh, how I miss Airplane.
