Who ya gonna call? I really enjoy the simplicity of this one. The uniforms across the board, the blue background, and trying to portray the subtle differences between Ray and Venkman's hair. Perler beads on a 12 x 9 inch painted canvas.

"Life sucks, Brendon. That's your lesson. Go enjoy it."
Before he was Archer and Bob Belcher, Jon Benjamin and I used to hang out on a soccer field. Home Movies is a timeless gem of a series that connects with me on so many levels. It also has the most natural dialogue I've ever heard. If I was forced to only re-watch one show for the rest of my life, it would be tough not to pick this one.
Here's to Jason, Brendan, Melissa, and Coach McGuirk. 12 x 9 inches, Perler Beads on a painted canvas.
Congratulations to Bretta in Indiana! She's this week's winner of the Pixel Prize and she selected a Dalek. A fun piece to make and a bit out of the ordinary for me as Dr. Who is one of the few nerdy things I haven't seem to get into. Hopefully I did justice to what I assume is a race of mutated R2-D2s.
That two out of three down! Notes:
I learned of a great controversy while making this piece. Is Han's Hoth jacket brown or blue? Answer: Actual jacket was brown but due to the filters used to give the scenes a "colder" feeling, it often appears blue. I don't know about you but my action figure had a blue jacket and that settled it for me.
Bonus points for the Millennium Falcon turning out so well.
Boba Fett was a tricky one. Lots of detail on that guy and there's always a bit of pressure when it's such a popular character.
Special cameo: Ghost Ben.

Very excited about this! I've got a lot of new pieces to display and t.b.d. has the perfect lighting/atmosphere. Looking forward to the big opening reception on August 1st. No need to RSVP. I'll just see you there, right?
Now here's a cartoon family that's starting to rival the Simpsons in laughs it gets out of me. Featuring the Belcher clan from Bob's Burgers done up in a Perler Bead pattern on a 12 x 9 inch painted canvas. Bonus points for Louise's ears turning out so well.
