I was honored to create an original piece of art for Fantastic Planet, to be included in the YAY Legends Every Day art show in 2016.
Fantastic Planet is an animated film like no other and one of the most inspirational films to me artistically. It is a masterpiece of surreal and psychedelic visuals created by the late French animator Rene Laloux. This animated film from 1973 is nothing short of brilliant and is highly political with visually striking imagery that fall somewhere in between Terry Gilliam's Monty Python style animation and the artwork of Hieronymus Bosch.
So to honor Rene Laloux and this film that I loved so much I also paid homage to another piece of art that inspired me, (and contained giant robots and terrified humans)--the art of Frank Kelley Freas. Specifically what he painted for Queen's album, News of the World.
