here we are with the first of a two part mega-challenge from matt. below is the text that i received.
Idea one. And old woman killed chris and stole his face to escape from the dementia ward in retirement home.
the subject chris is a long time friend. we’ve know each other since middle school. it was nice having another opportunity to draw him. he’s a legit gore fan, so i can only hope i did a good enough job with it. i think the skinless face at least looks pretty gross.
i’m not sure what this whole blackout is going to do to this post, but in protest of a protest of a protest i’m going to post this anyways. i contribute content to the internet. it is free of charge to view. my only hope is that if there is any money to be made, it be made by me. and if i can’t make any money off of my work, i still want people to view it. (making someone smile is about the equivalent of five dollars to me) that’s why we make things that aren’t tables and chairs and buildings and planes. the idea stuff. the songs and poems and drawings and paintings and movies. the stuff you use with your brain. we make them so people can experience them.
they are ideas first. ideas are free of charge to share and you can’t ever stop people from sharing ideas. many people have tried and failed. in spite of all of the internet piracy, the movie industry isn’t starving. they make comfortable livings doing nothing more than making movies. until george clooney is taking out a second mortgage on his two bedroom home to make sure he has enough money for alimony, i really don’t want the movie industry deciding how the internet works.
the internet decides how it works. it is up to us to adapt to it.
chobo shows a complete lack of understanding concerning cardboard boxes and their function in the world.
for the past year or so, i have been fortunate enough to work with the gentlemen over at studio corrida doing all kinds of random work including costume and set design, camera work, yelling on and off camera, sandwiches, art direction, acting and whatever other job no one else wants to do. the best part about it so far is getting into show for free.
here are two videos that we shot last month at the shop in bloomfield.
first up is bear skull, a local two piece who have perfected the art of sounding like two witches arguing.
second up is dean cercone, a little guy with big dreams. there have been very few shows that i’ve seen that i would describe as magical and, i must say, this set was magical.
the further adventures of chobo. i’m not sure what chobo is, but i know he knows how to have a good time. occasionally, when he smiles way to hard, he’ll start flying around the room.
