Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead
mixed media
15" x11" x38"
Given the opportunity to participate in Gallery 1988's tribute to writer/director Edgar Wright, I decided to create something inspired by Shaun of the Dead. Wright is responsible for Shaun as well as Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, the about-to-open The World's End, etc. Being a big fan of Wright's style I wanted to participate and despite being the easy rout, I chose to focus on Shaun of the Dead. I also wanted to take the opportunity to experiment with scale as well as steer away (a little) from the sort of 2D/3D relief work I've been doing recently. Shaun stands in at just over 3 feet tall and is 15 inches wide. He consists primarily of wood, foam and acrylics.

It is available here.

Folks Festival logo

I recently had the honor of designing the logo for the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, which takes place tomorrow through Sunday in Lyons, Colorado. John Prine, Loreena McKennitt, and the John Butler Trio are just a few of the artists performing. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and I imagine this unique festival is going to be a lot of fun.
