“They might want to laugh, but the smile would be slow to come. They might want to cry, but the tears wouldn’t well up till the next day…” – 2046 (2004)
Continuing my sci-fi series… painting inspired by Wong Kar-Wai’s beautiful 2046. The color palette of this film is almost entirely deep reds, sea greens, and yellows, so I painted accordingly. (Quite a difficult color scheme to use convincingly without it all being a garish mess, LEMME TELL YOU….) This is Faye Wong’s delayed-reaction android character.
Limited edition prints are available here.

“All those moments will be lost in time, like… tears… in rain. Time to die…” – Blade Runner (1982)
Painting (titled “Soliloquy”) from my solo show! Inspired by Rutger Hauer’s beautiful (and partially unscripted!) final scene. I nearly died working on this, it was so difficult… but I’m happy with how it finally turned out! Limited edition prints are available here.

Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. You know? I just do things." – The Dark Knight (2008)

I’ve seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You’re not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you… you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero." – The Avengers (2012)
