"the roost" poster by strongstuff "the roost" poster by strongstuff
here's my entry for ltd. art gallery's inaugural show, "POP! the art of pop culture", which opens this friday, oct 21, 2011.

i've been a massive transformers fan since i was a kid, and with that badass, monotone voice, stoic personality, and his army of cassette minions, soundwave's always been one of my favorites.

i thought it'd be amusing to portray his massive frame be a resting spot for his loyal servant, lazerbeak, as well as a host of assorted small fowl.

"rumble, lazerbeak, ravage, eject, operation warfare."

Soundwave was always my favorite as well. Great Image. He seemed to have an honor to himself amongst the decipticons.

Soundwave - my FAVORITE! Love it!! The monochromatic scheme with the pops of yellow/gold really works.

My friend had the toy Soundwave when we were kids. I've never been that jealous of anyone! I clearly still haven't got over it.

You killed this one, Tom! It was beautiful to see in person at the show. P.S. You could've done an edition of 50 and it probably would've sold out. Congrats!
