A Zombie At Glens Falls

A zombie attacks a solider over a water fall.
A Zombie At Glens Falls

            Once again I have to give a big shout out and thanks to the guys at FUBAR Press.  I was lucky enough to do another pin-up for their newest and soon-to-be released graphic novel FUBAR: American History Z.  This anthology of stories takes place from about the first Thanksgiving until almost current era.  I highly recommend reading all their FUBAR anthology books.  The stories and art are easily on par with any big publisher and one never feels as though you didn’t get your moneys worth. 

            I will go on record, as saying the artists in these books will have bright futures in the arts.

            Upon being told of the projects time line I instantly knew I wanted to pay homage to the illustration The Battle At Glens Falls by N.C. Wyeth.  The idea spoke to me because

White Whale

White Whale

            After many passes on Rt 30 I was finally able to paint my white whale.  Like Ahab I’ve felt this need to capture my obsession. This tree has been in the back of my mind for seven years.  Three years of commuting to college from Reading to Lancaster and then four since graduation.  I needed to paint this tree.  I’m assuming most probably don’t even notice it.  Upon first sighting I loved the character and story.  A lonely, gigantic tree in the middle of a field.

            So where does this painting coming in?

Six Seasons and a Movie Art Show

It was the entrance to the fan show of the year!

The Dreamatorium.  Who wouldn’t want a chance to play in there?!  I did and it was surreal.  And no, an Evil Joe didn’t come out.  Or maybe he did?!

The PixelDrip Galleries art show Six Seasons and a Movie Art Show was simply fantastic and streets ahead.  It was an absolute honor and a blast to be included in the art show to help support and promote NBC’s, Critics Choice Award for Best TV Comedy, Community. *

Meeting series creator/writer Dan Harmon; Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley); Gillian Jacobs (Britta) and Erik Charles Nielsen (Garrett); was a blast.  One could tell they were excited and I truly believe, humbled by the art.  As a fan of the show, I was always greatly impressed by how much fan interaction they have in an online presence.  And, was even more impressed by them in person.  They were very nice and very approachable.  You couldn’t ask for a better experience.
