“Mighty Rebel” – a mixed-media original, collaged to the max and painted in acrylic with hits of 3D, photography and lots more. Character set features (but is not limited to) Astro Boy, Dunny(s), Gloomy Bear, Hello Kitty-ish characters, Kaiju, Kill Bill (kitty cosplay), Kokeshi and original SupaPop characters — tied together in a Tarantino x Hokusai-esque great wave of Kanagawa flowing from right to left.
Astro himself has a nice pattern of Orochi-Irezumi, inspired by my own tattoo work, and sports a Bailey’s of Hollywood(ish) Sinatra / Bogart-era hat. The idea for the piece was a sequel to the Hello Rebel art that I created for the opening of Lab Art (LaBrea) a few years back.
Painting away at the “Sweet! Art” studio in Hollywood, CA (Dolby Theater / Hollywood walk of fame)
