I am pleased to announce that I am participating in a group art show at the Creature Features gallery in Burbank, California, that opens this coming Saturday, February 24. It is not often I have the time to participate in such shows, so I was grateful that there was an opening in my schedule in which to create a piece.
Since the show has not opened yet, I thought I would just give a tease as to what my piece looks like. It is okay to reveal that it is a caricature portrait created in watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil (100% real traditional art), and not only will the original be for sale, I just dropped off 15 hand-signed modestly priced prints of the piece at the gallery today.
I call it Tim Curry – A Portrait of Villainy.
Below is further information about the show prepared by Creature Features. While the show runs until March 11, Mr. Curry will only be appearing in person at the opening this Saturday.
For more than forty years, Tim Curry has been the actor’s model of diversity with a career covering everything from stage to film to television to voice acting.
His roles have defined iconic, from his breakout performance as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW to the villainy of the horned Darkness in Ridley Scott’s LEGEND and Pennywise in the original miniseries of Stephen King’s IT.
Beyond these genre icons, Curry has been unforgettable in films such as ANNIE, HOME ALONE 2, MUPPET TREASURE ISLAND, and CLUE, not to mention voice work for cult hits like DUCKMAN and GARGOYLES.
With well over 200 credits to his name, Curry has been an indelible presence on the entertainment landscape for decades.
This February, Creature Features summons a talented band of artists from all fields of art and culture to pay tribute to this beloved actor.
Our group art show will feature our blazing group of talented artists from every corner of the pop culture universe — comics, animation, visual FX, make-up FX, production design, fine art, and more.
