Bob’s Burgers Hawk & Chick Variant

HawkChickSigning1A very special variant of my “Hawk and Chick: Monster Slayers” print is now available through Gallery 1988. This limited edition of 25 includes the signatures of Keisuke Hoashi and Suzy Nakamura, the voice actors of Hawk and Chick.

Hawk and ChickPrintVariantThe variant stands out from the original by including two additional Kaijus in the distance, as well as a “Chet” chop in the lower right area.

Keisuke and Suzy were so gracious to join in on this fun and I owe a huge debt of thanks to them both. The event couldn’t have happened without the efforts of fellow artist Eugene Kaik, who also created a wonderful Hawk and Chick variant the actors signed. Thanks also to Jensen Karp and Amber of Gallery 1988 and the folks at Bob’s Burgers for making it a reality.

Not Bad For A Human- Aliens tribute

AliensTributeEtsyPrintCelebrating a true sequel success, James Cameron’s “Aliens” was a white knuckled thrill ride when it was released in 1986 and still holds up years later. The film is full of catch phrases (thanks mostly to Bill Paxton’s character) on top of the terrifying action. My tribute print combines some of the better known quotes and phrases, mixed in with notable icons and a portrait of Ellen Ripley.
