I did a Spider-Man poster last month. I endlessly blogged and tweeted about it, so I’ll try not to go on about even more BUT…

IMAX were good enough to write another blog post about the concept work I did before we settled on the final art (which has some commentary on the process, and you can see HERE), so I’m reposting the pictures on this blog too.

I was really happy with the final piece that we produced, but there are a couple in here that I would be happy to work up to finished pieces at some point when I finally reach the bottom of never ending to-do list…

Gallery 1988 are throwing another of their Under the Influence shows celebrating someone they think would make for great art and they have kindly invited me to take part this year. This time around the subject is the bespectacled East Coast master of neurosis - Woody Allen.

I don’t think you can really separate Woody Allen from his native city, so it would have been remiss of me to do anything but take it as a subject (and it sits quite nicely alongside this Hitchcock piece from last year). I tried a few new techniques and brushes on this, and while I wont be using them all the time, they turned out alright here.

This will be on sale on Friday at Gallery1988 Venice (and at some point soon after at the Gallery 1988 online store) - it’s an 11 x 14 giclee print in an edition of 20 and they will be $40 each.

(also, and this is of no real interest to anyone but me, this is my 100th tumblr blog - which works out at about one a week for the last two years. not too shabby, and hopefully more blogging this year!)
