Sly & Arnold by Ernest “Jazzman” Resendes

Ernest “Jazzman” Resendes has been toying with the idea of a painting of Sly and Arnold for a while. In the midst of all that he’s been doing (his regular 9 to 5, helping score a friend’s film, working on his own independent short, etc.) inspiration struck! Jazz has this to say about the work-in-progress:

Here is a sketch version of what might be one of the candidates for a Sly/Arnie painting. I’m sooo indecisive it’s insane.

With this piece I was trying for something expressive with some humor and a touch of YELLOW SUBMARINE influence added in ( hand with blade ). I’ve never consciously tried to conjure up influences but what the hey. It was sort of fun.

I wish this could be done before “GET CARTER” comes out but it won’t happen with my schedule. I am getting better with scheduling my time though. Maybe I can do a Sly face study painting soon.

BTW pretty soon I’ll be filming some exteriors for “BLACK CAPRICORN DAY” this fall. I’ll be strapping myself to the top of a UHAUL to film a high tracking shot of swurving car. So if I’m not on the SZ messageboard for awhile that’s because I’m in a body cast (lol) .

Peace , JAZZMAN

Sly and a Fan

Vince Bernatowicz sent in the above picture with the following:

Craig, I found the following text and (above) picture on iWon.com‘s “My Brush With Fame” section (it was posted on Tuesday, 6/27/00). Please keep up the great work – I love your website!”

Susan S. from Georgetown, KY and SYLVESTER STALLONE

My friends and I go to the Kentucky Oaks[the day before the Kentucky Derby] every year. We were taking a break from the crowd when I spotted SYLVESTER and party coming down from ‘millionaire’s row’. I didn”t want to act like a ‘typical fan’, so I politely waited to ask if I could take a picture. He replied, “Well, don’t you want to be in it?” I had two pictures taken with him and thanked him.


Vince, thanks for taking the time to email the picture and kind words. It’s STALLONE fans such as yourself that make the SZ what it is!

best,
