Here’s a little painting of one of the greatest movie moments ever, even if it is only the second best in its own movie, Steve Rogers showing Thanos, Thor, and the world that the little budge we saw in Age Of Ultron was no joke and he is truly worthy to wield the mighty Mjölnir. And then goes opening up a giant can of whoop-ass on the mad Titan before ultimately being bested right as the newly un-snapped cavalry arrives (the single greatest moment in the movie, and in any movie of the last few years). I w,ant to do a piece depicting Cap finally – FINALLY! – giving the iconic “Avengers, assemble” line, but I’m still unsure how to go about doing it. It would certainly be a much larger canvas piece. I had to get this one out of my system, though. The image and moment are just too good. So here he is. 9″ x 12″ acrylic on canvas. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase.
On behalf of Northern Soul and the Northern Soul Art Project’s curator Narciso Espiritu, Jr., I invite you to the opening reception for “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Pop-Culture Art of Craig Mahoney” on Monday, October 20th at 7pm. Nearly two dozen new, original drawings and paintings celebrating my favorites from movies, music, TV, and comedy will be on display, with most being shown publicly for the first time.
All artwork will be available for purchase. In addition, there will be drink specials, free snacks, and some of the movies and music that inspired the artwork playing throughout the night. I’m also hearing a rumor that there will be cookies. No promises, though.
If you’re the type of person who enjoys promoting other people’s work (and if you are, THANKS!), here’s the link to the facebook event page and below are some promo pics for your Instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds. Feel free to tag me on instagram (@yerolepalCraiggers) or twitter (@CraigMahoney) and hashtag it #PortraitsOfAwesomeness (Is that a long hashtag? Yes. Do I have a better idea? No. We’ll just have to live with it.).
