About two years ago I decided it was time to get some new art for my apartment, since what’s on my walls has been largely unchanged for almost nine years. As is my nature, now, two years later, I am finally doing something about it.
I went to the Indiana Comic Con this past weekend (brief recap: it was a lot of fun, I got my picture taken with Cam Clarke, who provided the voice of Leonardo from the original TMNT cartoon and Kaneda from AKIRA, and watched a surprising amount of STAR TREK: TNG in the hotel), where I met Jim Lawson, one of the original artists on the TMNT comic. Jim was charming, and I was quite taken with a TMNT print he was selling, so I picked up a copy.
The other new thing I have to tart my walls up with is this print I bought in New Orleans, at the Art Market.
It’s called “Pin Up Girl VS The Thing,” and the artist is Joe Badon. Joe’s style reminds me a little bit of Bruce Timm’s, but the almost 3D effect makes it striking on its own. I bought this one and a couple of other prints as gifts.
Now I just need to buy frames, which means I’ll probably get these hung up by, oh… 2017.
