S is for Space 411

S is for Space, inspired by Carl Sagan, and all things written and shown in the name of the Cosmos.

S is for SpaceS is for Space is part of my latest art project EntertainMe. Here I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media.

Also, go to my dA page to see S is for Space, it’s image sources & more tidbits. To hear an amazing Brian Eno space track, An Ending (Ascent) used on the Apollo missions. See one of my earliest collages with this same song title. To see more music and bands I like, dare to click here.

In addition, S is for Space is my latest digital collage, one that pops with a ton of contrast much like I wanted it too.

I am liking Yagey‘s style a lot on deviant Art. Furthermore, my current goal is to be looser, more arty, in that Yagey-like manner, without aping him. Using two incredible images from NASA on the Commons, you can view them below this text.

Also, the title just came to me. S is for Space reminded me of an old children’s picture book, adding some wide-eyed innocence to the futuristic theme. I may start a series on this, and I may not (he says uncommittedly).

In conclusion, here is another amazing Saganism: “Look again at that dot, that’s here, that’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization. Every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals. Every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there, on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. – Carl Sagan

Taboo 385

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

So 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). This series would include all this in aces, elements that would draw me and other viewers in.

Therefore, I wanted this piece to capture this enigmatic figure. A character with a victorian cloak and tall hat, this was a harder search than expected. I proceeded to create this lush, multicolored background with existing patterns. I then saturated 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 had recently used this on another collage piece. Taboo, a dark, but delightfully different piece for me.

Gone Girl 384

Gone Girl 384, based on the David Fincher feature film Gone Girl.

Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! -Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl, part of my second art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. See my deviant Art page for more background info and source credits.

I have been a long-time fan of David Fincher movies. Once he got out of sci-fi and twisted flicks, into more conventional. relationship-based movies, I was hesitant. But after watching The Social Network and Gone Girl, I was impressed and amazed all over again. Gone Girl wanted me to read the book badly. And the Trent Reznor Soundtrack only amplified the weirdly, layered, unsettling vibe of the film. I was going for this same vibe in the piece anyway, and midway through they both came together nicely.

Blade Runner 372

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

Ultimate Blade Runner quote: 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 behemoth Tyrell building reflecting off the detective’s 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.

Can’t Find My Way Home 382

Can’t Find My Way Home 382, based on the classic hit by Blind Faith.

Can’t Find My Way Home was one of many hits. The album was released in the UK with a cover photo of an 11-year-old girl named Mariora Goschen. Thus, The cover photo because as famous as the album itself. It showed Goschen naked and holding a model spaceship. Back in that year, it was just a tad controversial. 

Bob Seidemann came up with the concept and took the photo. It was to represent humankind’s relationship with technology (this was when the mission to put a man on the moon was BIG NEWS). The band wasn’t yet named, and when Seidemann took the photo, he called it “Blind Faith.” Hence, Clapton decided that should be the name of the band. See here the original album cover.

This is also a tribute to all Supergroups. This would include Blind Faith, Traveling Wilbury’s, Bad Company and yes, The Dirty Mac.

Drake 379

Drake 379. No, not the rapper. But the larger than life, fire-breathin,’ green, scaly, scary dragon in both mythology and media.

Drake,  something enormous and awe-inspiring in scale and size, fantastical and terrifying at once, the supernatural stuff of dreams and nightmares. Drakes are smaller than dragons, but still fly and breath fire but have no magical abilities. Basically, Drakes are evil.

Finding art like this that is so mystical, wonderful and amazing, that is hundreds of years old, is truly refreshing. Looking at images on the Internet Archive Book Images on Flickr is a visual treat. Using some of this original imagery in my collage work is an honor. See this collage of mine as another example.

Mst 380

Mst 380, inspired by the always talented Ulrich Schnauss, with Jonas Munk, from the new, instrumental album Passage.

This piece is inspired wholeheartedly by all instrumental (or mostly), blissed out, ambient, shoegaze, post-rock music (pretentious, yes, so whatever you wanna call it). Mst 380, best seen with headphone pop playing.

Being drawn to the mystical since I was young, I seem to veer toward it in my work. Not religious by any means, I still gravitate towards spiritual icons and symbols. This was another old illustration, black & white and simple, yet powerful. It was a joy building off this mystical and wise- looking monk.
