Stacy’s Mom 167

Stacy’s Mom 167, by Fountains of Wayne from the album Welcome Interstate Managers

Stacy’s mom has got it goin on
Stacy’s mom has got it goin on
You know I’m not the little boy that I used to be
I’m all grown-up now baby can’t you see
Stacy’s mom has got it goin on
She’s all I want, and I’ve waited for so long
Stacy can’t you see, you’re just not the girl for me
I know it might be wrong but I’m in love with Stacy’s mom.

My art project, 365 Blisspop, where I create a year’s worth [yep, 365] of digital collages, with indie songs as my subject

Still not sure about the order of my pieces in this web blog, I thought alternating between current pieces and older ones might be a good way to go. We will see. So I thought posting Stacy’s Mom before a current piece, borrowing from the main source, would be appropriate. It would and could show a possibly evolving process of my work, or just lazily ripping myself off. Maybe a little of both.

This was an early collage piece, playing with halftones and Photoshop actions, in which I am still an amateur at, but will continue to dabble in.

Taboo 385

Taboo 385, based on the FX TV series Taboo. It stars Tom Hardy, and is produced by Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott.

For intense but tasty trailers 1 & 2

My latest art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. See this piece and more on deviant Art.

When trailers and then each episode for the FX series, Taboo, blasted onto the big box I was hooked. With the association of Ridley Scott, Scott Free Productions, and this mysterious brit fellow Tom Hardy, I knew I would be a follower. Sordid, dark, dank, ridley-esque, cinematic and forbidden (the title hints to that), it would include in aces all these elements that drew me and like-minded viewers in.

I wanted to capture this enigmatic figure with the victorian cloak and tall hat, but was having a hard search. I proceeded to create this lush, multicolored background with existing patterns, then saturating the heck outta the colors. When I found a workable image of the dark man, the piece was almost there. I dropped in the last bit, an old, black ship illustration I recently used on another collage piece. Taboo, a dark, but delightfully different piece for me.

Blade Runner 372

Blade Runner 372. Inspired by the sci-fi, futuristic film Blade Runner. Directed by the visionary Ridley Scott.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments will be lost in time, like tears…
in rain. Time to die.

My all-time, favorite film is Blade Runner, and can watch it on repeat and still be moved on many levels. I loved the opener where you can see the Tyrell Corporation reflecting off the detectives eyeball as he approaches it.

Still not sure know how many people seeing my piece got it, but I decided to juxtapose a human eye with an android’s eye. And show the difference between the two primarily with different, saturated colors. I added the now classic quote with blue bar to separate them even more. And there
you go.
