Bad Robot Art Show

Tonight is the opening of The Official Bad Robot Art Experience at Gallery 1988 west. The show features art based on films and shows produced by Bad Robot, J.J. Abram's production company. It's very cool to be participating with Bad Robot in any sort of official capacity!

I based my piece on Super 8, which is probably in a tie with Star Trek for my favorite Bad Robot film (and was partially filmed here in my home state of WV!) I thought it would be cool to show the kids after the events of the movie, making a new short film about the adventure they'd just been on.

Ninja Turtles Threadless Design Challenge

Here's my submission to the Threadless Ninja Turtles T-shirt design competition, which is now up for scoring. If you like my design please vote for it here, and hopefully it will get turned into a shirt! And if you REALLY like it, giving a score of 5 is, of course, extra appreciated! Thanks to everyone who votes, and to everybody who helped my previous Threadless design get printed.

Trace Around your Heart

Last night was the premier of Trace Around Your Heart, a film made by my pals and fellow Brainwrap crew. It's about the struggles of Trace Cherokee, a washed up country singer (and puppet) who must revisit a past romance.

I designed the logo for the film as well as these posters used to promote last night's showing, which was a complete success. There was a great turnout and a huge response; lots of laughs from the audience and plenty of fanfare at the end. And it was well deserved, as everyone who worked on the film did an absolutely amazing job. The final product is an extremely funny and well-put together movie. I'm always blown away by the quality and quantity of the work the Brainwrap crew put into these projects.

ALSO! If you're in the Huntington WV area then you're in luck, because tonight at 7:25 PM at the Keith Albee theater, Trace will be performing a LIVE concert. Now when's the last time you saw a puppet play his country hits in a beautifully restored, 100 year old theater?

Here's the Trace Around Your Heart trailer:

This is one of my three pieces for Gallery 1988's Is This Thing On: Saturday Night Live art show. The theme of the show was kept under wraps until the gallery doors opened, which was a pretty cool idea and also why I'm just now sharing the images with you!

I still watch and love SNL every week, and if you do as well then you will recognize this piece as a tribute to Stefan, Bill Hader's Weekend Update character who has become a fan favorite.
