One movie I really wanted to do a piece on for my MASS HYSTERIA show was 2014’s Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton.
If you haven’t seen it, you really should! It was one of my favorite movies of 2014. It’s rather polarizing, but I really liked it and I kept trying to think of ways I could do a print based on it for my show. I decided that it might be pretty rad if I tried to do a panorama of the entire train, so I sketched it out. That sketch ended up being 12 feet long, so after talking with my framer, I got it down to a somewhat more manageable but still daunting 9.5 feet.
I ended up printing 6 of them, framing one for the gallery. It ended up being one of my fave prints for the show and I had a blast doing it.
It’s sort of hard to photograph, so I created a fly-through video showing the whole print. SPOILER ALERT! it basically shows the whole plot of the movie so watch at your own risk!!!
Here’s some horrifying progress shots for those of you who havebeen asking :) as you can see, things start off pretty nightmarish. This piece is a bit different from my usual style in homage to sailor moon. It’s gonna be pretty cute and cartoony. I hope y'all still enjoy! #illustration #painting #progressshot #wip #sailormoon #gallery1988 #paint #acrylic #canvas #pastels #uchi #kelseybeckett
The idea for this show was for the image to be an art piece first, with the pop culture reference as a secondary concern. This meant that a piece with multiple portraits was pretty much out of the question, as you can normally guess the film immediately once you have two or three characters in there!
Then I remembered how much I love the scene in Amélie where she dissolves, because she can’t sum up the courage to tell Nino how she feels. I mean, I love the film in general, but tackling that moment felt like the perfect thing for me to interpret.
It’s a huge honour to be taking part in this show celebrating a decade of the gallery that pretty much started the whole pop culture alternative poster scene, especially seeing as I’ve only been contributing to these shows since the start of 2012. Thanks for having me guys – have a great one!

“Paths of Khan” - Wrath of Khan movie map, map key and some new details from my show at g1988. The original sold but prints are still available here. Definitely one of my all-time favorites, still makes me cry like a baby.
‘We’ve done the impossible, and that makes us mighty’ (Inspired by Firefly for Gallery1998 X Joss Whedon, LA, September 2014)
The edition of 20 prints sold out at the weekend, and thanks to a busy week I hadn’t had chance to post on here. I do have a handful of artist proofs though, so please drop me an email (which you’ll find on the about page of my portfolio) if you’d like to get your hands on one.
Firefly is (sadly, was) a fantastic show driven by its characters, and I thought it would be interesting to literally place the characters as satellites around Nathan Fillion’s Captain Mal.
