Our friend and insanely cool artist Denise Vasquez recently dropped us a line showing off a new creation she's made for a charity contest sponsored by HalloweenCostumes.com. The contest benefits Midwest Art Catalyst and The Miracle League of North Mankato and has artists making unique Vader Helmets (a la "The Vader Project").
Denise's entry has been selected as one of the 25 finalists, and you can easily see why... she's created a jaw dropping glow in the dark FrankenVader helmet! To see this bad boy glow and to get some insight as to how Denise made it, check out this video she's uploaded.
If you've got $24,000 burning a hole in your pocket this holiday season, then you may want to check out La Luz de Jesus Gallery because they've got this amazing painting available from artist Rob Burden.
His show called "Toy Box" is a tribute to nostalgia. La Luz says it, "...features epic portraits of the small action figures that he played with as a boy. The patterns that adorn many of his canvases are taken from fabric, carpet or wall-paper patterns from his childhood home. His original toy is often framed in a shadowbox attached to the painting, acting as a modern reliquary for these figurines. Burden enjoys the irony of spending hundreds and hundreds of hours in order to make a single painting that glorifies an object that was cheaply, mass-produced for millions of kids."
Our friend Tom Spina contacted us about another jaw-dropping Star Wars project he recently worked on. This time Tom and his staff restored an original Tauntaun from "The Empire Strikes Back". Holy smokes!
The piece had previously been displayed at Planet Hollywood and was purchased by a client of Tom's in a recent auction. It was clearly in rough shape, but as you can see from the finished product above, Tom and his staff once again turned back time. To see some astounding before and after pictures of the restoration process, as well as a cool video, head over to Tom's website, Tom Spina Designs.
