With the opening of Deadeyes tonight, we couldn’t leave you hanging on a few of our Tim Lee posts from earlier.

We teased you with one side of “Get a Grip” and now we can fully reveal the other side, and it is just as brilliant as we wanted it to be! I love both sides but the darker side is a strong contrast, and it has an octopus!

Get-a-gripWEBWe also get the full reveal of Caritas and its counterpart piece, Calumina. These pieces are oil on wood royalty at an astounding 14″ x 30″ each.

Deadeyes, by Robert Hoggard, Tim Lee and Joe Scarano, runs March 7th – 30th, with an opening reception on Tonight Friday, March 7th from 6 – 9 PM.

For purchase instructions, please refer to the online preview.

RHAnother quick preview from Deadeyes before the actual preview comes out, and this time by robot alchemist Robert Hoggard.

This creation is known as “1080P”, and looks like it is on a mission. That cold stare is ready for the robot uprising! …well, probably not, since it has a turn key on its head to get him going. He is also equipped with a 95 mm x 55mm LCD screen, and tons of lights in his head.

I can’t get enough of these robots! Who doesn’t love robots?

Deadeyes runs March 7th – 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, March 7th from 6 – 9 PM.

 

Keeping my promise from yesterday, I’ll show you a few of Joe Scarano’s “Grimley” plaques that are making their way to Deadeyes at Stranger Factory.

Joe has about 10 plaques ready to go in various colors and schemes, and we know these won’t last long! This character is simply astounding(and adorable!).

If you didn’t know –
Grimley lives in the trees, he lives in the walls, the ground, the clouds… he appears like smoke to lead you astray. You had planned on walking through the woods to get to Granny’s house, but he has other plans for you. You will happily follow him anywhere he leads you.

Now, for a little preview:

Well, color me blood red and call me dumbfounded because Joe Scarano just floored me for  Deadeyes!

We will reveal more of the Grimleys that Shing wrote about tomorrow, but today we have two finished pieces from the amazing show!

Up first “Circling the Drain”. A grayscale creepy masterpiece which looks like how probably most feel post Mardi Gras last night!
Circling_The_Drain_150Now for a mega splash of color, “I’ll show you all my tricks”. These happy cartoon characters are living the life!
Ill_Show_You_All_My_Tricks_cropped_150See them in person at Deadeyes running March 7th – 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, March 7th from 6 – 9 PM.

Skelve Robot

 

Now this is something I wasn’t expecting, like a left hook to my jaw, a Skelve Robot! This badass piece by Robert Hoggard titled “Misadventure” arrives this Friday for an ABQ takeover ala Rampage!

This custom-built mech by Robert is adorned with UV LEDs in his head for a creepy glow and survey the destruction of the surroundings, but also contains a glow in the dark skull for extra amazingness. There are also lights inside to see the stellar paint job by Jay Hollopeter.

More bots soon from Robert.

Get-a-gripI am back from vacation and slowly recovering from jet lag, and leave it to Tim Lee to tell me to “Get a Grip”.
“Get a Grip” is a double-sided wall hanger of epic proportions! A classic Lee woodcut skull is being gently caressed by a monstrous tattooed arm. Tim is making us wait like kids at Christmas for the other side of the arm that is supposedly painted in different colors. Ugh  – the wait is killing me.

Fortunately, we wont have to wait long for Deadeyes because it opens this Friday!

Another piece for the upcoming  Deadeyes show at Stranger Factory with an alarmingly droopy Flash. The piece explains itself, and it isn’t even finished yet. Those vacant and lifeless eyes are surprisingly poignant.

King MeLeave it to Tim Lee to find an ornate frame and roll it into something amazingly regal.
This is a developing work for Deadeyes right now, but Tim is already working his magic. The red tones, the always badass Lee skull-like face, it’s all here, folks, and this is just the early stages!

More soon!

photo_4Shing was able to creep into Robert Hoggard’s studio last week, and now we have a few gems from his robot labs.

All the artists are frantically working away getting ready for Deadeyesand Robert is right there in that mix. The robots are starting to take shape! Some are just a shell of a body while others may just be a head. This is fine for now, but if they reach self-awareness, look out Skynet!

1922656_10203100181084922_365401072_nTim Lee has taken title of his next show “Deadeyes” to another level with the Zombowie!

As you can tell, this is a play on the classic David Bowie album “Aladdin Sane” from 1973. Bowie might be a slight walking corpse these days(editor’s note: are you kidding, Brad? Bowie is still gorgeous and timeless and will never die.) but he most definitely doesn’t have the vibrance of color and grit as Tim’s depiction. I love the spinal column going down his throat and stitching of the lightning bolt. Well played Tim, well played!
