Why you ask, did I paint a naked portrait of Seth Rogen riding a clam shell a la "The Birth of Venus"? Well, partially because it was hilarious, but mostly to pay tribute to the amazing Judd Apatow. As near as I can tell, Seth Rogen has appeared in something like 75% of all of Judd Apatow's movies and television shows. With that in mind, I felt that honoring the muse was the best way to show my appreciation to the artist.
This may be one of the weirdest thing I've ever painted, which is really saying something. Though I have to admit that I really like how this painting turned out. It makes me giggle every time I look at it.
So if your in the LA area next tuesday I strongly recommend you come check out the show at Gallery 1988. This is my first time ver showing with Gallery 1988, and I'm extremely excited. I hope to see you all there!
