In September, Sam reached out to me about participating in his Voltron Art Show at Toy de Jour and I have to admit I was intrigued. It had been at least 20 years since I had been a part of an art show, and if I am honest with myself, I wish my life had taken a different turn and was a practicing artist rather than a practicing technologist. Either way, I dove in whole hog and put together a rather ambitious piece.
The piece is 48″ x 15.5″ acrylic paint on wood. I used neon acrylic for the first time to get the special effects and love how it came out. You can purchase the piece over at their website.
The theme of the piece is the episode, The Black Paladin from the first season of the new Netflix Voltron show. I watched it with my kids and we all loved it. I was never a Voltron guy growing up (more He-Man, Star Wars, GIJOE and Starvengers), so this has been a really pleasant surprise.
