My pal Jared Deal invited me to be part of an art show in New York at "Live With Animals" art gallery which he is curating. The theme of the show is "Shady Characters", so I put together some...well, shady characters. Below is a sneak peak. Some may question whether or not these characters are ACTUALLY shady, but I figured anyone coughing up blood is probobly a good person to steer clear from. These are obviously digital, but the final versions will be completely made of felt, construction paper, japanese paper and googly eyes. I know some of the colours do look a little funny in these images and contrast weird...that's a result of me trying to match the colour of the felt and construction paper as close as possible in photoshop...things actually stand out better on paper as opposed to these digital images. And yes, for those who care...that is Jugle!!! well, a young version of him anyhow. Not sure which colour version of him I like the best. I always pictured him as the orangey yellow version, but I like how the bluey version seems to glow on that background.
If you wanna see the show, the opening reception starts Friday July 28th at the "Live with animals" art gallery. Here's the address...
210 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
