Heisenberg, Bueller and Ralphie

breakingbad-blog

A series overflowing with incredible writing and acting,”Breaking Bad” dropped its viewers into a beaker of highly volatile creativity.  Vince Gilligan presented us with a unique cast of characters and plot lines that can be shocking one moment and slyly clever the next. It’s sad to see it end. This is my small way of paying tribute to one of the very best TV dramas and the most infamous chemistry teacher on the planet.

This image, as well as the following two are available for sale as signed 11 x 14 prints. Visit the ChetArt shop to learn more.

Ferris-blog

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” represents a signature piece from the 80s and one of John Hughes’ finest creations. Chock full of clever writing and a great message about seizing the day, it also serves as a love letter/postcard to the great city of Chicago. My tribute embraces Mr. Hughes’ genius and I wish he was still with us, creating more gems like this.

ChristmasStory-blog

In 1983 Bob Clark transformed the incredible words of Jean Shepherd into the holiday classic “A Christmas Story.” The end result brought forth a flood of memorable and hilarious quotes that I’ve paid tribute to from this warm story of childhood dreams and nostalgia.

All three of these tributes are available as signed 11 x 14 prints.

Norman Lear and The Princess Bride

TPBposter_NormanLear

The legendary Norman Lear poses with his framed print of my Princess Bride “As You Wish” image. Serving as executive producer for the film, he took a liking to my rendition of famous quotes, characters and icons of the cult classic. With this in mind, I happily worked with Act III Licensing  to produce a framed version for his birthday.

Growing up with the genius of his groundbreaking sitcoms “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son, ” “Good Times,” “One Day at a Time,” “Maude,” “The Jeffersons” and “Fernwood Tonight,” it’s truly an honor for me to have a connection with him through this tribute print. A big thank you to Julie and Penny at Act III Licensing for making it all happen, documenting it, and to Mr. Lear for his appreciation of my efforts.

Painter X3

Painter Cans

I received my complimentary version of Painter X3 yesterday, handsomely contained in a mini collector’s can on a flash drive. It prompted me to recall purchasing version 1 in 1992 (pictured on the left) that was packaged in a standard sized gallon paint can filled with a fistful of diskettes and manual. A lot has changed through 13 versions of Painter, but it still remains my program of choice for creating artwork. This new version looks sharp and runs stable. Learn more about this product here.
