painting for the 100 on 100 Art festival, presented by Birdseed Collective and 1/1 Magazine this evening at 841 Santa Fe. The 100 on 100 art show exhibits 100 artist from all works and styles, on the 100th day of the year. I was hyped to get a chance to render one of the "GhettDough" characters to full fruition. This particular character being one of my favorite from the StonesThrow collective and created by the amazing Jeff Jank, the art director at StonesThrow. My goal was to take the minimalist character Quasimoto and to render him in a fashion that breathes new life and emotion into his persona. The character's look for the most part is somewhat militant, with angry eyes and permanent smoke dangling from his mouth, so with this take I attempted to capture the character in a more cute, but also still dangerous fashion. Usually anyone wielding a brick as a weapon means business, so with the inclusion of the LP Rusto can and the brick, the cute look of Lord Quas face was intentional. This piece was a blast to complete and I hope you get a chance to come see the original work, and if not here is the digital version for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for stopping in to view the work, and look for more on many great projects in future posts.
