One thing common to summer are weddings and this year my wife and I had our fair share, all within a span of two weeks (including two in one day). I sometimes like to give friends a piece as a wedding gift and when our friends Lisa and Kenny legitimized their coupling, they were the lucky recipients of the following:
"Game" FC Giclee Print, 18" x 24"
Both are avid video game types, so I decided to update a piece I'd created a few years earlier for a group show based around video games (see below). It was something I was never 100% happy with and feel that the "mark two" version of makes a bit more sense, even though it's a bit more abstract/absurd.
"Zap" 2 Colour Letterpress Print, 5.75" x 8.75". 2006
I used the above as my initial template in the sketches, but as I messed about with the final, I came to the realization (with some input from my wife) that it worked better if the head was actually an arcade game as opposed to having a guy with one strapped to him. And from there a shining new piece for the walls of newlyweds. I just hope it doesn't scare the crap out of their son....
