« on: October 10, 2008 06:53:37 AM »

First commissioned art work. My roommate was my client, and he requested a sign that said "master blaster two" in a post-apocalyptic theme.  I'm putting it under Art instead of Misc. because I got into the tones and composition, way more than I thought I would, really.  Ok pics:


It's made from a piece of 24"x48" poplar-laminated pine plywood.  Which is to say, nice clean very light wood.  I used mostly spraypaint and, well, dirt, to make it look corroded and rusted and dirty.  The letters are made of two different types of metal link chain.  I really dug working with the chain, I must say.  Though trying to corrode it with acids didnt work really at all, so I faux-corroded it with paint, ha.

It was interesting for me to take brand new items and combine them to look like something "cobbled from whats left after the end of the world." (roommate's request description)  The work is going to be displayed open-air and subject to the elements for about a month.  Im really looking forward to how that will alter it... will it become more decrepit-looking? or will it become cleaner?

Also, Master Blaster is a character from the movie Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
