Light Bright, Light Bright

Next piece in line for the Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Goonies show that'll be in LA next month. Here's my submission for Gremlins.

I re-watched this recently with the Boyfriend for reference. I could have picked so many different scenes, but I found myself laughing hysterically when Billy is running after 'Stripe' into the YMCA (right before the gremlin cannonballs into the pool). I found so much delight in this scene because he has his house's sword strapped to his backpack when he runs up to the building. I don't know why, but a backpack filled with an electronic-puppet/Mogwai, and a sword strapped to it just seems far too entertaining... Enjoy!

Ray, When Some Asks If You are A God....

...You say... 'YES!'

This is for a gallery show in August that focuses on three particular films from the 80s. This one being Ghostbusters. Everyone kept telling me to do the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, but frankly I was way more interested in Gozer (Stay Puft is still ridiculously awesome though!).

They show Gozer for what, less than two minutes?! As a kid, I was extremely puzzled by her/him/it. Mainly for the fact that it looked like the costume was constructed out of clear Christmas ornaments, hot-glue gun sticks, and spider-webs. Also, I couldn't figure out of it was Gozer's skin considering there were claws on her/his/its hands along with high-heels attached to the feet. ...Were those heels shoes or was that part of Gozer's body? ...I'll never know.

Yeesh. This one took me forever to crank out because so much stuff was going on. Thanks goes out to everyone who came to the Alien/ation show at Space Gallery last weekend! Also, much thanks to Rob Greenleaf for interviewing me on the artprojekt!

This is a bit last minute but hey, I'm in a show! There are nine illustrators total, and it will be at the Space Gallery in San Francisco, this Saturday July 10th.

I'm super-stoked! I have 6 illustrations framed and hung up by the great Rick Kitagawa and Eve Skylar from Paper Hat Productions. The reception starts at 5pm. Hope people can make it!
