“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

WE, ROBOT_commission


Thanks for waiting, Oscar. I appreciate your patience.

This image was brought to you by the number '5', the letter 'E' and the Children's Television Workshop. Oh, and Justin Timberlake. Don't hate - you know it's catchy:

"You can't stop, baby. You can't stop once you've turned me on. And your enemy are your thoughts, baby. So just let 'em go. 'Cause all I need is a moment alone to give you my tongue and put you out of control. And after you let it in, we'll be skin to skin. It's just so natural. Wait a second...She's hopped up on me, I've got her in my zone. Her body's pressed up on me, I think she's ready to blow. Must be my future. Sex. Love sound. And when it goes down, baby, all you gotta do is..."

I'm running out of superlatives for your art Eric, but this one makes me really want to read the story, so please tell me there will some day be a story . . . please.

Dude,
You are so talented, I don't know why you were talking about not measuring up @ the Savannah College gig you're going to.

I'm just sorry I'm too far away to attend.

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?

Eric, I have to say this epitomizes the idea that you lack dynamic sense in your work or any anatomical knowle....I can't do it with a straight face. haha.

The composition is just plain brilliance. It's always a testament to your ability that you can show such gorgeous movement that honestly looks animated despite being a still image. I love your work and I want to marry it. I would like your permission to make an honest woman out of your art.

Jeezus, such movement and life in this one. I can easily imagine the entire scene preceding it and after it from this one snapshot. Great story.

Chris Sims said...

Simply amazing! I'm loving the composiyion but I'm really feeling sorry for that dude that's getting sandwiched.

Poor guy.

I just heard your podcast on Sidebar and came over here to check out your blog. This pose you did is one of the dopest poses I've ever seen! One chick is jumping on a dude to push him down on another chicks sword? Incredible.
