Oscar Legends

Title: "Higher Primate"
Size: 10" x  20"
Medium: Acrylics on Canvas

Tomorrow night Hero Complex Gallery will have two art shows. This piece is for the Oscar Legend show at SOMArts in San Francisco.

I based this painting on Kubrick's, 2001: A Space Odyssey. I was watching this making of clip of 2001 and was digging on how they made the pen float in the air in zero space. Check it out here at 7:10. No 3D here. All practical effects. Brilliant.

There are lots of themes in this flick. Human evolution for one. Never be afraid to evolve. Change is good. Take a chance. 
Grab the pen monkey. Grab the pen.

Alright. it's late and I'm rambling. Check back in soon. Emerald City Comic Con is coming up and there will be lots of updates to come. I'll be sharing a space with the art homies and I'll let you know what area we're in. Stay tuned.
