1965 Buick Riviera Inspired BATMOBILE

This is a Batmobile modeled after the 1965 Buick Riviera that my dad rebuilt a few years back.  I loved that car and I have always loved the different versions of the Batmobile, Tim Burtons version being the first car that ever captivated my imagination and changed what a car was to me.  This is the first attempt to draw a car since I was about 12 years old and I am really happy with the way it has turned out.  Let me know what you think and what could make this better.  I plan on eventually having this in an action scene, speeding down a Gotham street with bullets ricocheting off its body armor as Batman ejects out the roof.  Eventually.

Neil DeGasse Tyson trippin on Issac Newton

Slow Neil DeGasse Tyson to half time and he enters an altered state and starts tripping on his favourite physicist Issac Newton.

iGlide Symphonica

I could normally give a shit about dancing but the way this guy iGlide moves is inhuman.  Really cool stuff.

Darkside Gig Poster

Like the Medusa: Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails poster I did a few weeks ago, I have done for the DARKSIDE concert that I am going to this weekend.  I have this black and white version and 3 different coloured versions I will be sharing over the next few days. I will be giving away 20 A3 prints of these at the show (5 of each of the variations). Also check out DARKSIDE and their fantastic 2013 album Psychic.

ARCA & Jesse Kanda video for Knot

The video has wax-like embryonic musclemen synchronized dancing to ARCA's track Knot from his &&&&& mixtape.  This is the first scene in a full film titled TRAUMA, a collaboration between ARCA and director Jesse Kanda.  The pair will be take on tour this year and show exclusively in selected international galleries.  It will be interesting to see the dark and creepy video that they have come up with to match the sinister music of ARCA's &&&&&

Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails Gig Poster

Tonight we are going to see Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age play a coheadline show. When I first started working on Medusa I had plans to make a mock/fake poster for this show.  I like the way the text worked out and fits into the look of the poster.

This is my first attempt at the text for this poster and while I like it I think it so too bright and stylised and takes away from the image.

This is the original linework that I did using Illustrator over some hand drawn elements.

The finished poster without any text.
