If you have liked my page on facebook, or follow me on twitter, you are probably aware that I have just been a part of the Drawn Chorus Collective exhibition in London. So I guess that is pretty much what this post will be about :) The name of the Exhibition was AHOY! A nautical illustrative imagining of mysteries and tales of the sea.
Me and my friend Hector setting up the window display for the show.
For this show, I was inspired by the crappy horror movies that I love so much, and decided to draw my very own set of VS posters. I had a lot of fun naming them, which I am sure the people who make these sorts of movies do as well :p
Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla
Ultra BoomPowBot VS Giga Sharkinator
Killer Bionic Botswarm VS Mega Megaconda
Lord Lazer Cyborg VS Über Tentacle Menace
I got a little carried away when drawing the details in the robots, adding all sort of stuff. I have even drawn a little TV screen showing King Kong running on TCM on the Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla one. I did add a few other small homages to different popular culture, but you will have to find those for yourself :p
The Espacio gallery (where the show was held) was nice enough to make a video from the opening night which you can view here:
I am really happy with how the show went! I got to see a lot of great work from the rest of the Drawn Chorus Collective, met a lot of new great people, and even got to say hi to one of the readers of this blog :)
