I have been an enormous fan of artwork since I used to be a teen accumulating McFarlane comedian books in my mother and father storage. I used to like choosing up my weekly comics each Tuesday, operating house and going by these pages like a person on coke. Years later, I based JoBlo.com in that exact same storage and now right here we’re, over 20 years later and artwork continues to be an enormous a part of my life as I proceed to gather cool shit, just like the superior collectibles from Sideshow today, in addition to cool artwork items that I like to unfold round my humble abode. It is also one of many causes we run a weekly “Superior Artwork we Discovered Across the Internet” column each Saturday afternoon. I really like that stuff! Most not too long ago, I ran throughout this piece at my buddy’s home and needed to discover out who the artist was behind it. The piece known as “Do Astro Boys Dream of Electrical Sheep?” by Sean Danconia of PopArtLand.com.
Any main film geek will respect the quite a few creative “call-outs” in that one portray, however for those who take a look at his total web site, you can find tons of equally spaced out, authentic, gonzo amalgamations of anime, motion pictures, cyberpunk, comedian books and all the pieces else in our popular culture universe that has made its manner by Danconia’s thoughts over the previous couple of many years. Sean has additionally designed greater profile works which you may need seen already (Disney, New Stability, Hey Kitty, Bob Marley, WB, Marilyn Monroe) and even contributed a candy piece to Los Angeles’ Guillermo Del Toro: In Service of Monsters Artwork Tribute Present a few years in the past, which you’ll be able to see beneath. This piece known as “Mako Mori: Pacific Goals” and like lots of Danconia’s creations, incorporates a fantasy portray by which a number of worlds meld into one magical conclusion.
I personally related to quite a lot of his works (I bought a pair myself, in fact) however as everyone knows, artwork is nearly solely subjective, so it is in all probability finest if we permit the artwork to talk for itself beneath. That stated, since my first reference to Danconia, we now have spoken a number of instances and it seems he is aware of his motion pictures as a lot as….dare I say….me??! Significantly although, the man is aware of his shit and I believe that love comes by his artwork.
