BEBOP & ROCKSTEADY _ My TMNT-themed piece for the Children of the 80’s show, opening TONIGHT (about an hour ago, actually) at GUZU GALLERY in Austin, TX.
If you’re in the area, please consider swinging by and checking out the show in person. If you’re interested in buying a print of this piece (and they came out so well, you guys) please visit their online store.
Manly Art (aka Jason Chalker) did for Guzu Gallery’s Children of the 80’s show in Austin. The print is actually on trading card stock.Manly Art is an illustrator & custom toy maker. He’s also a Topps sketch artist for Star Wars, Mars Attacks & Wacky Packages.
In case you weren’t aware, or if don’t follow me on twitter/instagram - I had my first piece of art in a show this year at Guzu Gallery! My homie isaakramos invited me to be part of it, and I’m super grateful/honored to have had a chance to make some work for it. If you don’t already follow him, you’re missing out.
Tbh this piece was a real struggle, and there was much hand-wringing and crippling self-doubt. But I finally got a sketch working that I liked and, with a few days to spare before the show, I convinced the fine Mr. Hutchinson at Digital Letterpress to print them (mostly by paying him moneys).
I was super lucky and the print sold well - well enough that I only have a few copies left! The gallery has a few copies as well, and they are much more professional and better organized than I am, so please support them first if you are at all interested in taking home one of these.
You can also purchase one at my website - it’s my first time using squarespace’s shop app so fair warning that it might be confusing, and take me a minute to figure out shipping, etc.
Here are the specs for the piece:
Dimensions: 16" x 20" Paper: Lettra Ecru (Paper is a warm/off-white color with black ink - digital image is black on 100% white bg) Markings: Signed & Numbered Edition Size: 50
If you like Shadow of the Colossus, stay tuned and I’ll probably share some of the process and iterations I went through while working on this piece.
