Zoolander's Styling Goo...



I've been sitting on this image for a month or so... The Show was out in L.A. at gallery 1988. I was unable to attend when the show opened at the beginning of January, and didn't find time to get out west to see it at all. Thankfully, two great people named Melinka Thompson-Godoy and Cheryl Elliott saw the show for me. They braved the congested L.A. traffic, saw the show and even sent me some spiffy photos by way of my lovely lady.

The show was called "Is This Thing On?", and served as a tribute to actors, comedians, and all around funny people that make us laugh...
I drew Ben Stiller as my subject, and took two the movies I'd known him best for and cobbled them into this image of Derek Styling a woman's hair using a special "product" (al a "Something about Mary") for a styling gel. I was pretty happy with the finished work. I even went so far as to gob some clear gloss medium onto the work surface to mimic the... Well, you can figure it out.

I was thrilled to be a part of the show and hope they invite me back...I've got some show pieces already brewing for 2011. I'm looking forward to a big year of shows..

Hope you dig..

wow. Dude, this is pretty darn slick. Can't say I've seen too much like this from you. Great work. I really gotta start searching out different gallery shows and such. Good exposure.

Pedro I really dig this pic. Very nice. Wish I also had been able to see it live, but this is fine. Can't wait to see more of you work in person here in NY soon. Do tell when you have more out.
