NEW PIECE.. for Threadless.com.
My attempt at entering the Threadless/Tate Moderns POP comp. I wanted to combine two 'POP ART' styles into one for this.
I've always thought paint by number has a kinda camouflage look about it. I drew an entire piece based on Thomas Gainsboroughs 'Blue Boy' (which is an actual P.B.N. piece I believe) but made it my own as much as I could. (all the numbers are made up, and alot of the smaller areas have no number, and I extended the artwork left, right and bottom.)
I dressed him a Sgt. Rock, of DC comics fame. Comic art seems to go hand in hand with POP art. It could be a 4 colour print, as the second green emulates the line work coming through underneath the 'combat' green.
Hope you like it, stay tune to vote.
