“A Thousand Times” – The Gallery 1988 Official Bad Robot Art Experience

A Thousand Times

“I would rather suffer the end of Romulus a thousand times. I would rather die in agony than accept assistance from you!”  – Nero

Since moving to LA, I had been wanting to do things besides the regular client work and t-shirt designs. Towards the end of 2012, I got an email from Gallery 1988 to be a part of a few of their upcoming shows. I was excited and honored, I had been following the gallery for a while now and had seen so many great art shows and art work come from the gallery. The first show they wanted me to be a part of was their official “Bad Robot the Art Experience” show in conjunction with Bad Robot and J.J. Abrams.

This was the perfect time to get into a different type of work, gallery work, something that I never thought I would be doing any time soon, and a gallery like Gallery 1988, just a few months after moving to Los Angeles. It was also the perfect time to work on an art piece for a movie, revolving around a television show that I watched so much as a kid.My mom was pivotal to my introduction of science fiction. She let me watch Star Trek: The Next Generation with her and take me to the various Star Trek movies that were released as I was growing up, and this lead me to start watching the original series. I wouldn’t consider myself a “Trekkie”, but it definitely plaid a big role in my love for science fiction growing up.

I wanted to do something different than the standard “floating head” style posters that you would normally see, and decided to focus on the main villain of the movie, Nero, a symbolic image of him after he meets his demise at the end of the film. In the recent years I had been reading and studying a lot of old EC/Al Williamson space comics as well, and I wanted to give the piece that same kind of feeling. This is a signed and numbered edition of 30, and has various slight offsets in the printing to give it more of a vintage comic feel. It will be available at Gallery 1988 on friday, and the remaining will be sold on their website the day after the show, with a portion of  proceeds going to The Mission Continues. I will not have any AP’s for sale.
