FLYING MONKEES ATTACK!!!
Back from New York now, and terrific time was had. Got to meet up with some rather lovely folk while there, too. First off, had a nice meeting with Doug Hoffman @ Kid Robot. For those who don't know, Kid Robot is one of NY's premier vinyl toy retailers, and whenever I've been I've always paid a visit. Doug also did a Circus Punk for the Toy Tokyo show, something I had participated in with BB originals (I'll dig my pictures of those up for yall soon). Anyway, hope you're reading this Doug, and hope we can meet up on an art show sometime soon.
Also popped into the Animazing Gallery, which I last visited on honeymoon when they premiered the Dr Seuss art show. Hopefully be able to get something up and running there where my more kid-centric paintings might get the chance to meet an audience.
This is FLYING MONKEES ATTACK!!!, one of the BB paintings that I was most happy with and certainly the most ambitious from the art show. It's about 5ft long and on canvas. The villains are (hopefully obviously) the flying monkeys from Oz crossed with the Monkees band. Their power source comes from boy band music. Apologies to Micky Dolenz for the big-chinned, helmet-wigged, snaggle-toothed monstrosity that made it's way into my painting!
