Twilight Zone tribute show at Gallery 1988:LA
I was invited to take part in Gallery 1988's next big group show! This one is dedicated to a TV show that became a timeless icon: The Twilight Zone. If your are a young one you may not be familiar. The Twilight Zone told stories with a bizarre or spooky twist; Very often these twists were metaphors for issues of life, love society, government, etc. I have always loved the show and had a few cool ideas revolving around specific, classic episodes but decided to do a fun take on the intro and Rod Serling himself.
To keep with the classic 50's flavor of the show I wanted to do something that was sort of "black and white, yet not".
So I decided to create the majority of the piece with ink washes and line work with a sort of wet-into-wet, Kirby Crackles technique in the background to add some color and punch.

Here is the piece framed. The folks at Sacramento Giclee did an amazing custom job for it!
This painting will hang along with Twilight Zone themed art from about 50 of my favorite artists! If you're in So-Cal go see Another Dimension at Gallery 1988:LA. Show opens Thursday, May 20th from 7-10pm.
