Exhibition: Cowabunga!! 30 Years of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
 
I created this piece for iam8bit's TMNT show, "As Above, So Below", to commemorate my 30 year love affair with all things Ninja Turtles. As a kid, I thought it was so awesome that they lived in the sewers, and would often venture (not very far!) into underground tunnels in the woods near where I lived, hoping to stumble across a secretive group of reptilian martial artists.
Though I loved the grittier, black-and-white original series of comics, I based my piece on the more colorful 1980s cartoon and toy line, which more or less defined my pre-pubescent childhood.
I wanted to capture as much of the adventure from the depths of the earth all the way into the sky.
A limited edition of 30 s/n giclee prints on canvas (including 1/30 framed) will be available at the show, which opens Saturday, July 19th.
