This is my piece for the Silver Screen Society’s February exhibition honoring the very funny podcast “How Did This Get Made?” Artists chose one of several bad movies reviewed on the podcast by Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas and June Diane Raphael (who can make the word “disgusting” the funniest thing I’ve heard) and my choice, if it’s not obvious, was Batman & Robin.
My little brother and I have seen this movie too many times, and it is oh so silly, and we love it. There are enough nipples sculpted into costumes that I figured I’d give everyone a chance to show theirs off. And revisiting those costumes…boy are they dumb. Mr. Freeze’s get-up is one of the most convoluted, stupid things I’ve ever had to draw. So this was tons of fun.
Check out all the great work on Silver Screen Society’s online gallery here, including Jimmy Giegerich’s excellent Cool As Ice piece (which got him followed BY Vanilla Ice on Twitter! A very rad outcome). And, if you haven’t already heard “How Did This Get Made?”, correct that error here. You’ll be better for it.
Thanks to the guys at Silver Screen for inviting me to take part!
This bad boy just got posted on The Silver Screen Society’s page! A nice little companion guide to all of your Princess Bride needs. Follow the story to all of your favorite locations and revisit the magic.
So glad I can finally post this - my newest piece is up over at Silver Screen Society! Suspiria is easily one of my favourite horror films and while this was a really challenging one to work on I’m really happy with how it turned out.
So in lieu of today’s Daily Drawing, I’d like to share a piece I made for the Silver Screen Society’s Wallace and Gromit tribute. “A Grand Day Out” is probably my favorite movie of the series; Thanks so much Trevor for inviting me to participate!
Ok, real talk: I really love Cool as Ice. I have to rank this movie up there with movies like Troll 2, The Room, and Birdemic as far as how good it is because of how bad it is. C'mon, Vanilla Ice plays a hip-hop gypsy, babbles incoherently for the entirety of the movie, and also pretty much turns into Steven Seagal whenever there’s a fight scene? Count me in!
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite.”
this month’s movie at SSS is Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man (not in The Criterion Collection, but… close enough, i say). they’ll be posting new posters all month long, so head on over there and be sure to close your mouth from time to time, lest you drool all over the place.
Here is a piece I did this month for the awesome project Silver Screen Society, which picks a new film each month for a few artists to interpret. This month was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
One of the main themes of the film is fear and overcoming your fears, so I knew I wanted to do something with the dementors. I had a good time using a limited palette with my Women Warriors piece so I decided to try using a lot fewer colors than I normally would here, too. Fun project! Thanks to Trevor and Brandon for inviting me.
This is my piece for the upcoming ‘Alternate Ending’ show at Bottleneck Gallery.
What if at the end of Evil Dead 2 instead of being sucked into olden times, Ash was sucked down…to Hell! Prints will be available. I’ll post the details shortly.
Pretty excited about the show. There’s some amazing artists on the list and from what I’ve seen this one should be awesome! Details for the show below.

Life is full of endings that we cannot change, goodbyes we cannot take back, and letters we cannot un-send. Classic movie endings stay forever frozen in our mind, and a tragic book ending can haunt you for days. That is why Bottleneck decided to change the rules of space and time, commissioning over 60 gifted artists for our “Alternate Ending” exhibit. Each artist will present a piece representing what they wish had happened at the end of a certain film, video game, or book. It is our chance to rewrite the end, and we hope to see you there.
I chose to draw Fifi, the chief of the Main Force Patrol, at home, watering his plants and smoking a cigar. Fifi is one of my favorite characters in the movie. He wears cool hats, cool glasses, and he never takes his scarf off. And his name is Fifi Macaffee.
The scene that this is based on is also pretty awesome.
