This piece is awesome. I love the use of 3D additions to create a very unique profile. All the details and colors are very well done. I love all the spots in the green skin, and the nicely painted RF on the shirt.
We got a chance to interview the artist. Here’s what they said.
|MC: Tell us a little about yourself.
Fershozombie: My name is Fernando but I go by the alias fershozombie. I am an illustrator from Mexico. I work designing merchandise for bands, skateboard companies, and clothing brands.
|MC: What got you into art?
FZ: Ever since I can remember I love drawing, I used to draw the characters from the cartoons I used to watch. That was my first connection with art.
MC: That’s cool. What’s your artistic background, training/education?
MC: How long have you been creating custom Vinylmation?
MC: How many other custom vinyl pieces have you made?
MC: What’s your favorite piece you’ve made?
|MC: Do you collect the Vinylmation created by Disney artists?
FZ: I haven’t really had the pleasure to get one, I only have a small collection of blanks that I plan to work on.
MC: Well, from what you have seen out there, what is your favorite Disney Vinylmation design?
|MC: How did you come up with the idea of the Rat Fink piece?
FZ: I have always been a fan of Ed Roth’s art, you can tell if you see my portfolio. So I wanted to do some kind of tribute to his work, and the vinylmation was the perfect platform for it.
MC: Can you describe this figure? The inspiration. What detail went into it?
|MC: What is your favorite aspect of it?
FZ: I would say color, I love that neon green I used on it. That’s a color I use in most of my art.
MC: What was the hardest part in creating this figure? Clearly it’s just more then paint, how do you get the 3-D effect?
MC: Well it looks really good. Thank you for talking to us. One last question: In your words where can people go to find out more about your pieces and see your work?
Also if anyone is interested in getting this piece, it is currently up for auction on ebay:http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
MC: Well, thanks again! Keep up the good work, and let us know when you finish the any new pieces!
