Here's the latest piece for tomorrow night's group show at G1988. This show will celebrate a handful of movies that came out 20 years ago. Dusk 'Till Dawn is the first collaboration between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Following QT's Pulp Fiction and RR's Desperado, the two friends decided to collaborate on a horror movie, that has now been turned into a full on series on Rodriguez's own channel, El Rey. Hard to believe this came out 20 years ago. It's a super fun movie and still one of my favorites. It's also fun to watch a horror movie that is full of practical fx instead of being heavy handed with 3D. Anyway, here's hoping RR & QT collab on one more project.

Here's how the framed piece came out along with a close up of the frame itself.

Above is an in progress shot and below is an example of the sketch done in photoshop. I wish my schedule allowed the time to do traditional pencils, but it's just so much faster and easier to compose and scale on the computer.

Anyway, below are the deets for tomorrow night's show that runs up until July 16th.
