Seriously, I can’t believe I still have to talk about this. The trailer for Avengers 2: Age of Ultron JUST dropped and Felicia Day getting DOXXed by Gamergate is crushing it in the trends. If you are a Gamergater, I don’t need you as a fan.
The Columbia Museum of Art is the last stop for the Norman Rockwell exhibit traveling the states. So the museum challenged the Photoshop-capable to use their skills on existing Rockwell art for a chance to win tickets to the event. After image browsing, I knew exactly which picture I wanted to use. Everyone expected a Godzillafication, but I wanted to be more subtle. This was not going to be some memetic art for “the lulz”. I wanted something that has some emotion to it. I thought of Dr. Serizawa from the first 1954 Godzilla movie, agonizing over if he should use his Oxygen Destroyer to kill Godzilla, and risk a weapon of mass destruction being turned loose on the world. This was the end result:
Are you heading to the South Carolina State Fair? You’ll get to see two of my popular Godzillafications in the Fine Art building under the mixed media section. Technically it really does just fall under photography, but Photoshop work is still surprisingly new to the art world. These framed prints will be available for purchase.
This Sunday I will be at SUPAH POP along with some incredible guests and artists. Come for the kaiju, stay for the fun! He is I and I am him, the Slim Kaiju with the tilted brim.
Keep up with all things That Godzilla Guy at my Facebook Page, including future shows and newest artwork! Remember that if Godzilla is your co-pilot, tell him to switch seats because Mothra actually knows how to fly.
New Twisted Kaiju Theater comic to thank all the fans for keeping the faith and voting for me. It is a little obscure for those who are doomed to repeat history, but I’m sure there are enough people who will get it.
On September 20th, I’ll have a tent and table at the Rosewood Arts Festival. It’s a free local event, so I encourage everyone to come out. I’ll have lots of very affordable art for sale. October 5th, there’s a great one day event with lots of vendors and guests called Supah Pop.
Please spread the word on these great local events.
With great pleasure, and with great gratitude for you fans, I announce that That Godzilla Guy is the Free Times Best Visual Artist runner-up for 2014! Not only have the people spoken to include me in such fine company as Blue Sky, the winner, but That Godzilla Guy was the Writer’s Pick for Best Visual Artist:
Best Visual Artist [Writer's Pick]- Sean McGuinness
You probably know McGuinness best as That Godzilla Guy, whose unique vision compels him to insert Godzilla into famous artworks or to create new art centered around the legendary kaiju. Matter of fact, can we just replace Busted Plug Plaza with a giant Godzilla statue sculpted by McGuinness? Who on City Council would we have to bribe for that? — Patrick Wall
Thank you to all your hard work and clicky-clicking. I am so grateful to have such dedicated and passionate fans!
