V. I. C. I. 5


I think it's actually finished now. I have only to package it up somehow and get it off to LA for the Idiot Box show in April.

Brian Biggs said...

What filter did you use to get the transparency so nice on the curtains? Or was that a "layer effect?" I'm a photoshop noob. Sorry.

Dan Santat said...

Ugh, shipping art... Hence, one reason why I don't do gallery shows outside of L.A. How big is this thing?

Pop-Monkey said...

Well done, Adam! Makes me almost long for a remake of a forgotten "classic".
If I'm not mistaken, I believe you just used the "antique table" filter at 75% over the entire image, correct? (insert electronic wink here)

Pinflux said...

Holy smokes, it's beautiful! Was the creepy girl there before? You really captured a nostalgic/oldtimey feel with this one :)

Shawn Escott said...

Just beautiful sir.

lovely painting and interesting characters. I'm trying to read the ticker tape with little success.

Adam Rex said...

Thanks, Giovanni!

Brian–It's called "gauzenate."

Dan–It's about 24 inches across.

Exactly right, Pop-Monkey.

Pinflux–she was always there, but I punched her up a bit.
I'm sorry, I guess I should have answered, "Creepy girl? What creepy girl? The only people who have seen a creepy girl in that jpeg have died horribly in exactly 24 hours."

Thanks, Shawn!

The main message on the ticker-tape reads, "THE BOYS DO NOT LIKE ME AT SCHOOL."

This painting makes my heart take flight, I'm happy I'll be able to see it in person.

AG Ford said...

Nice, and interesting to see you paint on that material.

Eric Orchard said...

Beautiful and weird!

Words alone cannot express the awesomeness of this. As soon as I get this video camera up I'll do an interpretive dance.

Candace Trew Camling said...

this is so fantastic! went to the SCBWI NE event yesterday and sat with fellow illustrators: talked about your awesomeness for a bit.
