Transcription project - The Garbage Pail Kids
I was brought to the awareness of a childrens tv cartoon from the 80s called "The Garbage Pail Kids", which ties in well with my cartoonish style of drawing. This would be used to somewhat make my work more introverted and self mocking, yet play a big part in the imagery of corrupted innocence as the characters portrayed in the GPK were bright, colourful and bold in appearance - yet often subjected to detestable scenarios.
A series of Topps Cards were created alongside these characters, which further provokes a feel of a mash up between childrens entertainment and dark humour.
Hey folks. Im Chris. People call me Kwiss. Cant see why tbh (ba dum tsh!)
I have a passion for heavy music, I "sing" in a metal band. I find it to be a very creative outlet from the real world, escapism is key. Through music I can paint with words. Nuff said =D
Talking of Art, ive always enjoyed nothing more than sitting down and indulging in creating what visions my mind depicts. From Alien Worlds, fantasy lands, elegant Dragons, the list is endless. I prefer surrealism over other forms of Art, purely due to its lack of boundaries. If I take a lemon, could it become the subject of a new object? Oh yes. Starship Lemon ftw! =P
Lets face it, reality can be quite boring. Science, its the key to taking us farther, but its development is slow in terms of what some of us want from it. This is why I want to learn the wise ways of the CG Artist, to weave new worlds and technologies not yet in our hands... if ever.
