Barber Shop Quartet

Meet my talented Barber Shop Quartet:  Squeedle, Irk, Bop, and Doug!  I've been wanting to make a character based on the cute red and white striped barber shop quartet idea for so long, but never felt quite right having it be a solo figure.  It's a quartet for a reason, there should be four members.  I was excited to come up with the idea for "A Monster's Lullaby" to finally create my quartet as a four-headed monster, and i have to admit i love them.

My Barber Shop Quartet is on display at Strychnin Gallery  in Berlin all month for "A Monster's Lullaby" ! A really awesome show in an amazing gallery that i've been so stoked for since October.

The Monster's Lullaby

So excited to be a part of this awesome show and amazing gallery.  I love the theme and had a blast making my pieces.  Here's a peek of my pieces, i'll post more photos and close ups of my pieces next week!

Show opens tonight at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin !

"The Monster's Lullaby" a group show with:

Seymour, Skeleton Heart, Cliff Wallace, Leslie Ditto, Kasey Tararuj, Rsinart, Nomi Chi, Niark, Citrone Rouge, Carisa Swanson\Goblin Studio, Lydia Dekker, Annie Bertram, Chris Brett and many more

Opening 19th of July 2013 at 7 p.m.

The groupshow, “Monster’s Lullaby”, opening doors on July 19th, will focus on current (and future) trends in illustration, sculpture and graphic art based on the art of character design. Plentiful artists develop characters as to bring to life what their expansive imagination has in storage. Most characters are reminiscent of famous personalities from animated films, cartoons and series. The art of character design is visible everywhere today, especially in the commercial world. They inspire  fun commercial spots to trendy fashion prints. Why do these amiable characters evoke such empathy in our culture?  In this day and age, where attention is currency, the need for effective communication through instantly recognizable designs has achieved its highest level to date.

They obviously stand out from every other mass-media imagery and this is the reason why Strychnin Gallery will be hosting a show entirely of characters, better yet monsters! However, not grotesque ones, but those friendly, soft, yet a tiny bit dark creature mentioned above.
We have selected a group of international artists that focus on sculpting, illustration, painting and design. They are Seymour, Skeleton Heart, Cliff Wallace, Leslie Ditto, Kasey Tararuj, Rsinart, Nomi Chi, Niark, Celine Rouge, Carisa Swanson\Goblin Studio, Maria Rubinke, Lydia Dekker, Annie Bertram and Chris Brett.
