"Whoa! Don’t get fresh!" by Blain Hefner
So proud to be a part of the Official Popeye art tribute show celebrating his 85th birthday at Herocomplex Gallery tonight in LA! Here’s my piece for the show, titled “Whoa, don’t get fresh!”, it’s based on a favorite scene from Robert Altman’s movie “Popeye” starring Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall.
Popeye has been a big part of my life, since before I could even talk, so I couldn’t be happier that Chogrin Muñoz asked me to be a part of it!
20 years ago this summer I painted my first portrait (at age 16). It was of Steven Spielberg, who has always been a major influence on me and my work. It still hangs in my studio as inspiration to keep on moving forward. Still hope to meet him someday. #tbt #ThrowbackThursday #StevenSpielberg
Happy Batman Day! Hope your’s was purrr-fect! #batman75 #batman #catwoman #julienewmar #adamwest #sculpture
Finally got a hold of an invisible gummi bear model designed by one of my favorite artists, Jason Freeny! He’s bigger than I thought he would be! #jasonfreeny #model #gummibear #sculpture #toys
Here is my latest sculpture based on Julie Newmar’s Catwoman from the classic Batman TV series. I couldn’t be happier than to have been asked to be a guest artist for this Poser Posse tribute to Batman.
