Rocky by Chris Visions

Chris Visions created this beauty for me last year for pick-up at HeroesCon.  I’d been a Chris Visions fan for some time and the opportunity to get a commission from him was one I’d couldn’t pass up.

Check out Chris’ site when you have some time to spare.  You’ll be amazed at his talent!

Oh, and if you’d like to get a print of my Rocky commission, you can.  Chris is offering giclée prints on 11×14 inch 100% cotton paper using Lucia inks for the highest quality. Free shipping in the US.  100% of the proceeds will go to help Chris during his recovery after his eye surgery.

Rocky was my first Chris Visions commission.  I hope it won’t be my last.

20 Oscar Nominees and Winners Who Paint

On March 2, 2014, Complex Art+Design posted 20 Oscar Nominees and Winners Who Paint.  Here’s what they had to say about Sly

Sylvester Stallone

Nomination: Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Writing for a Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen, Rocky (1977)

Oscar nominee Sylvester Stallone is not only praised for his awesome performance in the 1976 film Rocky, but he is unexpectedly an artist greatly influenced by abstract expressionism. Evidently, he had been producing art since the 1960s, even before he began acting. Basically, he went from boxing in the ring to revealing striking, intense paintings in an exhibition at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. Rocky is a man of many talents!
