About the design - and me!
Sticking with my favorite theme of heroic girls (see: Robot Derby Girl, Diodes are a Girl's Best Friend) and injecting realism or plausibilty to silly pop culture icons (ex: Madness of Mission 6 = PAC-MAN), I knew I wanted to make a certain teen detective her canine companion into the sole survivors of a Monsterpocalypse for the threadless loves Horror contest.
Everyone knows that it's always the timid, quiet, second-string female character that gets the dramatic arc and has the wits and skill to survive most horror movies. I struggled for days trying to come up with a semi-realistic interpretation of this toughened, nerdy survivor-type gal- until I remembered I was dating one, and asked her to model for it. She agreed -took a series of pics herself and held an umbrella in place of the shotgun. She wasn't sure about any of them but as soon as I saw the 3rd or 4th one I knew i had my pose.
I'm a freelance artist, writer and sculptor in need of a steady outlet for my ideas.
As a result I tend to cram as much info or story into a piece as time allows.
When I am not drawing or tinkering, I like to conceptually reinvent established entertainment franchises that I grew up on that I feel have derailed or softened, and try to remold them for a smarter, if not older audience of other aging children like myself.
I pretty much do this out of boredom and fun, for free.
I'm hoping one day this could land me a creative job doing this and not a lawsuit- I try to keep my re-imaginings vague, reverential and in the safe realm of parody.
I will also argue that you can never have enough zombies, women, robots or monsters in any artistic medium.
