Blackstar and the Blind Prophet

Blackstar and the Blind Prophet

I wasn’t as affected by Bowie’s music as much as some, but his love of sci-fi was one of the things that drew me towards it. Space Oddity has always been a favorite. More than his music I was touched by how his passing mirrored my own dad’s death from cancer last year.

It really hit me when I did the math and realized that Bowie would have been diagnosed in August of 2014, the same month my father was. He died almost exactly one year later.  I’m still processing his final album Blackstar in light of the circumstances surrounding it’s creation. I’m mostly impressed by his composure, secrecy and focus knowing he had a terminal illness and limited time remaining.

This piece and it’s original art will be featured in in the show STARMAN: For the Love of Bowie, sponsored by ArtLoveMagic.

I’ve been busy with my new part-time Art Direction job at Madness Games & Comics but am still knocking out commissions. Here’s an Anakin Skywalker sketchcover I just wrapped up.

Fury Road & The Doof Warrior

Fury Road & The Doof Warrior

I took a break this past Friday to see Fury Road with the girlfriend and holy crap, it did not disappoint. The only way I could think to describe it was a 2 hour sci-fi car chase on mushrooms. It was just balls-to-wall action madness with some awesome characters, including some badass women who even passed the Bechdel Test.

I liked it so much I decided to spoil myself by doing a strictly for fun fanart piece of the Apocalypse’s Guitarist, The Doof Warrior. This guy just about stole the show. Prints are available in the shop!
