Small Stuff 8: It’s Happening….Again

23 Nov

I’m a tad late on this but I’ve got some artwork in this years Small Stuff 8 group show at the Bear and Bird Boutique and Gallery. I was privileged to be part of Small Stuff 4 back in 2010, so it was awesome to be invited back this year.

So what’s this Small Stuff all about? Well all the artwork is 8X10 or less and this is a cash and carry exhibit. You buy it, they wrap it up and you bring it home. As well, the price range in this exhibit is very user friendly. If you’re looking to buy art for the first time, well here’s your chance. There is literally something for everyone.

The opening was today, but the show runs until January 16, 2015. Which means there will be plenty of chances to scoop a masterpiece. If you’re not in Florida? Go to www.bearandbird.com and you can purchase any piece (that hasn’t sold already) and have it shipped directly to you.

Here’s the show’s flickr stream for some quick browsing. And here’s what i submitted!

“More human than human” is our motto….

BladeRunner

 

My illustration of one of my favorite movies of all time, 1982’s Blade Runner. Directed by Ridley Scott and featuring Harrison Ford,Sean Young and an iconic performance by Rutger Hauer as replicant Roy Batty.

Most importantly the film was adapted from legendary science fiction author Philip K. Dick‘s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?(1968).  Dick died shortly before the premiere of the film but was able to see his visions brought to life in what is considered a seminal science fiction film. This would be the first of many adaptations of his work but in my opinion the best.

It also features a fantastic soundtrack by  Vangelis.

Introducing the Philip K. Dick Philosophical Podcast

23 Oct

  Say that five times fast. For your listening pleasure Weird Fiction Records is bringing you their latest venture, the Philip K. Dick Philosophical Podcast. If you didn’t know Dick  , he was and remains one of the world’s greatest science fiction authors. Even if you don’t know him, his works continue to be adapted into films including Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly,Next,The Adjustment Bureau,Paycheck, Minority Report,Screamers and most notably Blade Runner. All of which after his untimely death at the age of 53 in 1983. The quality of these films in no way suggests the quality of his prolific writings. However the man was a fascinating character whose themes resonate greatly even today. Along with Ray Bradbury, there was no other author that captured my imagination the way that PKD did.  More details to come as soon as I get the word from the esteemed electronic wizard Senator J1m (Adam Hulbert) who will be one half the of the podcast duo, along with Phil Young, and will provide sweet electronic soundscapes to accompany this epic undergoing. I myself just drew the logo above, but I will have to chime in some future episode.
