"Sometimes nothing can be something" and if you put two zeros next to each other you can create infinate. Let us get rid of all our prejudice and judgement. The only real thing is love. Let’s make enough room in our heart for it. The only critiria by which we can evaluate our worth. Difficulties are to be welcomed into our lives, as they teach us the importance of being alive and help us detect the meaningfull beauty around us. Love everyone the way you want to be loved. Be kind and understanding not superficial and judgemental.
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!
