Mad Science!


Here's a quick piece that I finished for an invitation to my son's 7th birthday party. We are having a "Mad Science" theme party, which he should enjoy, since one of his favorite activities is to play in his "lab." Unfortunately, I didn't have as much time to polish this piece as I would have liked, so I may come back to it at a later date. 

I loved science when I was a kid, and I still do. I had chemistry, electrical and aeronautical experiment sets. I loved taking things apart to see how they worked (sorry frogs!), and devoured many science related books. I thought I was going to be a scientist when I grew up. Although that didn't work out, I can't complain about being an artist. 

This piece started as a pencil sketch, and was painted in Photoshop. It is © Chris Chuckry.

2010 A Space Oddity


I was fortunate enough to add this fine fellow to my journal of oddities during my recent travels in the 13th dimension.

As a kid, I was an immediate fan of Basil Wolverton, when I discovered his work through some comic book reprints. It must have been his combination of humor and grotesque that hooked me. Here is a small tribute to him and the influence he has on some of my work.

This is a pencil sketch that I finally painted up in Photoshop. It is © Chris Chuckry.
