The 3G Show

I present to you, the latest three pieces I slaved on for the past week and half: My submissions for The Autumn Society's 3G Show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles (which I will be attending!).

Slimer as "The Demon" Gene Simmons.

Originally, the first idea I had was to do Staypuff, Sloth, Slimer, and Gizmo as kiss band memebers, but quickly scrapped that idea since it just felt a bit, dull, or didn't fit. With that huge mouth and tongue, I can Slimer as Simmons, but none of the others seemed to fit (for me at least) after sketching them out.

So I just decided to just do my own renditions of favorite childhood moments from the other two (Ghostbusters had too man, I couldn't just chose one part).

"In order to survive a war, you gotta become war."

I watched the hell out of Gremlins 2 when I was 5 years old over in Italy, and seeing him as John Rambo has always stuck out in my mind. Back then, that scene where he takes down the Spider Gremlin with flaming white out always got me pumped.

This one is more heart warming for me. Chunk offering Sloth to come live with him, and his eyes light up and his ears twitch with glee.

The show's opening reception is on September 3rd from 7pm to 10pm. If you're in the area, GO!
