I created my second painting a couple of weeks ago. Although I don’t want to be categorized by a certain theme, I continued with that of sea creatures attacking humanity.
This one is called (for now) : “The squid’s technique was stealth”.
A few of the paints were very on sale at the supply store and I don’t think I will be using them again. The squid’s eyes and some of the oil tanker SPLOSION were using these paints which were a bit runny and their colors didn’t seem to fit what I had in mind.
Still, I think I’m nearly ready to become a full-time artist. Any day now…
You may have a few questions about my work.
Q : Why are sea creatures attacking humanity?
Q : Will the human featured prominently in the center survive the attack?
Q : How can a squid remain on top of a cloud?
I don’t have answers to any of these, so I will leave them as exercises for the viewer. If you figure any of these out, please let me know.
I have been looking forward to a moment like this for quite some time. A project I worked on is being shown at my favorite art gallery here in Salt Lake.
I have worked on a 2+ year large scale multimedia art project with some friends which is a giant moving piece of steel from the future. It calls itself the “Jellyfish from the year 12,000″. This beast is a work of steel which is covered in shimmering materials and thousands of LED lights. These LEDs are programmed so that they can be controlled by a person on a touchscreen, or from audio or from computer generated animations.
I personally contributed in some of the software which controls this lighting system and it’s a project that I am very proud of. There were a lot of people with a huge amount of talent and expertise who worked on this and since it’s always hard for me to describe what this project really IS, please click here to watch a video and see for yourself :
Here are the details on the gallery showing this weekend :
