acrylic on gessoed bristol

I've steered away from doing sociopolitical art for a while so I'll keep this brief. Done for an "homage to a famous person" assignment for a portrait painting class. This was done as Obama was taking office. I had in mind a lot of parallels people were making to his age and past presidents - suggestions of inexperience, cockiness, blah de blah. Love him or hate him, the whole planet was well aware that he was in for a shitstorm of responsibility. Anywho, taking in that idea of parallels, I partially referenced the color palette and stance of Aaron Shikler's 1970 portrait of JFK. I like the idea of daily routines and visual metaphor - suiting up for the world, morning cigarettes, having the world on your shoulders, etc. All in all, I guess you could say it's a sympathetic portrait, I mean I don't care how good it looks on a resume, I'd never run for president.

and all other victims of hatred and prejudice against gay, lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transgendered, and queer people.

When will it end?

If you know the name of a person who was killed for their sexual identity, or was an accidental victim of hate based on sexual identity, or was driven to commit suicide over bullying related to their sexual identity, please feel free to mention their name in the comments and I will add them to the list.

Oh god some of these characters, I don't even know why they exist.
Someone should probably just sorta kill me for liking these shows
I shouldn't be allowed to watch TV :/

The highlighty ones are my 10 favorites

A good lot of these ain't even characters- they're real people.... but... I felt the need to add 'em anyway

I also made sure each character was from a different show - because I have no life.

Title: Malachite
Medium: Digital Photography
Photographer: Aaron J. Greenblatt
Camera Type: Panasonic DMC-LZ7 Lumix 7.2 MP
Editing: Edited in PhotoShop 7.0 for color accuracy, size, and to apply copyright and border.

Location: Photograph taken at the 2008 Southeastern Michigan Gem and Mineral Show at the Southgate Civic Center in Southgate, Michigan. Show hosted by the Midwest Mineralogical & Lapidary Society.

Description: Sitting out in the open in a cardboard box on a dealer's table was this six-inch-wide polished piece of malachite from Shaba Province, Congo. Recently, lots of malachite has been mined in the Congo, polished, and then sold at mineral shows and rock stores here in the US. Often these pieces are quite large and they often show swirly patterns of light and dark green intermixed with black matrix.

This particular piece was selling for $25 - which is a bit expensive considering the amount of this material currently available on the market. At another show, I was able to meet one of the Congolese importers. He had an entire three tables full of nothing but these polished malachite pieces - some of them weighing more than 50 pounds! Suffice it to say, the display was quite impressive.

About Malachite Uses: Malachite was used as a mineral pigment in green paints from antiquity until about 1800. Pigments made from malachite are moderately lightfast (not affected or faded by light), yet very sensitive to acids. As with malachite itself, these pigments often varied in color from light to dark green. Today, natural malachite pigment has been replaced by its synthetic form, verditer (two manufactured synthetic carbonates of copper) - amongst other synthetics.

About Famous Malachite Uses: Malachite is also used for decorative purposes, such as in the Malachite Room in the Hermitage (a famous museum of art and culture situated in the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia). The unique embellishments of the room include columns, pilasters, fire-place trimmings and decorative vases - all made of malachite in the "Russian mosaic" technique.

The colossal tazza (a shallow saucer-like dish) in the Linda Hall Library, in Kansas City, Missouri, is one of the largest pieces of malachite in North America. It was presented by Czar Nicholas II to August Heckscher (a multimillionaire and a philanthropist who served as President John Kennedy's Special Consultant on the Arts - the first White House cultural advisor) in 1910 and given to the Linda Hall Library in 1972 by Mrs. Helen Spencer. To this day, it stands as the focal point in the center of the Main Reading Room of the library.

I brought all of my prismacolor pencils and GOOD art supplies to school for my art class. I'm left with BIC markers and crayola crayons. FML

Anyway, Elsa Maltez, Kennedy Benjamin, and Aaron Benjamin. Quick facts-- Elsa and Kennedy are both 20, and Aaron is 22. Aaron and Elsa date, and Kennedy is a lesbian. Also, yes, Aaron and Kennedy are siblings. Elsa is not a rip-off of Elsa from Frozen (I created her back in mid 2012 with the name Elsa Cortez). They all attend a made up college called Marsina University. And No, Aaron's skin is not green/green tinted. It's tan... but my scanner hates my BIC markers. ;A;

Any other questions?

Heres the map of the entire island chain that HPM takes place in! You have an option to live on 1 of four islands;
Mystery Isle, Affection Atoll, Rapture Retreat, or Amusement Archipelago
Theres no differences in soil on each of the islands, to keep it fair between them... But each island has something rather SPECIAL on it that others don't... What is it? You'll see~
Sadly, you cannot live next to Raccolto town, the outlaying islands, or on the Sacred Isle, because, well, they're too crowded for a house or a farm!

So... where will YOU live?
You can't reserve a spot on an island, where you live will be written in the description of your application.

Ok, now. Obviously this piece screams BATMAN! (90s version, not the "Villian of the week" The BATMAN 2005-2008). I'm heavily influenced by Bruce Timm and the whole DC Universe that he help molded over the decades.

Back on track here, this is the final storyboard that was presented at the National AAF Studen Advertising Competition held at San Francisco 2008. I did about 2 other storyboards before this. One was just a traditional storyboard, really rough cut and such. The second storyboard was done and published as promotional images in the marketing plan book. This final one, which was actually integrated into their program and on their presentation DVD, took a pretty long time. I didn't sleep on a lot of nights. Like literally, I was on til 3 AM on some nights just cleaning up the line work. I didn't plan out my schedule too well (College + Collegian + Free Lance + Brain Age 2 = Utter pain) so Joel, if you're actually reading this...

My bad *Insert Helvetica Bold font here*


Anyway, I had NO CONTROL on the actual AOL ninja. My only part in this was to create a storyboard from a script they prepared for a cinema spot. The only requirement was for me to use the Ninja that they prepared for their AOL AIM campaign. Other then that, I had free reign and control doing the storyboard and character designs.

Personally, I had fun with this, although the main villain does scream "JOKER RIP OFF!" I'm sorry folks, but when I think of a villian, the Joker seems like the most perfect design ever. I had to pay homage to Bruce Timm again. The girl in the spot was actually the initial design of Reika's third roommate. There's so many things I still need to iron out the kinks with the strip I swear LOL! As soon as I find a writer, things will all work out, hopefully... who knows I might end up soloing the whole thing for the rest of my life.

So yeah, I lovingly named her Valerie. She's cute as a button.
