Call me extra dorky, but I love bringing together characters from different sci-fi franchises and universes. When we drafted our list of 100 Things to Draw When You’re Bored for 2014, I made sure to include Sci-Fi Mashups (#50) so I could smoosh it around like so: Yoda (from Star Wars) is lifting Morpheus (from The Matrix) in front of the Stargate (from Stargate). Mr. Spock (from Star Trek) was simply observing, until a chestburster (from Alien) popped out. Given time, I think it will probably sing the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Speaking of fun, I am really excited to be co-teaching a new mixed media workshop with Sal Scheibe, who is one of my artistic idols. This is not a class that requires you to buy all the latest trends in gadgets and toys – although you are certainly welcome to use your favorite gadgets on class projects! Rather than trends, Sal and I focus on teaching good design. This is a class that will make you a better artist, because we want to help you dazzle yourself. That way, when you do save up for the latest gadget or spray or solvent, you will know you’re going to put it to great use!
