Spitting Image: It’s Too Late For Me

4

Another one marked off my “art bucket list”! This is a portrait I have been wanting to do for a few years now. Repo the Genetic Opera is one of my all time favorite movies. Really how can you go wrong introducing me to a hard rock/heavy metal, horror musical where Paris Hilton’s face falls off!

bill-moseley-3All kidding aside, the movie is a breath taking. It is artistic and visually beautiful as it is entertaining. It is nothing like anything you have ever watched or heard. In a world full of remakes it is a breath of fresh air.

We first heard about the movie at a horror con where Bill Moseley was there and was telling people about how he had just finished filming it and really got us pumped for it. We never heard much more about it until I came across it when it was available on DVD. Something told me to buy the movie even though I had never seen it. I have been completely hooked ever since the day I brought it home. Thank you “something”!

Frank and I introduced many of our friends, family and even co-workers to the film. We have even gone to live shadow cast performances of the movie as it has often been compared to being a modern day Rocky Horror. I found the live shadow cast to be an absolute blast! I even saved my little zydrate (blue glow stick) as a momento! Anytime someone stops to compliment me on the Geneco patch on my coat or my Blind Mag shirt I can’t help but turn into my giddy, horror geek self knowing that someone else out there knows about this masterpiece.

The character Blind Mag played by Sarah Brightman drew me in from the moment I first saw her on my screen. Not only is she absolutely beautiful and musically talented but her story is intriguing and really pulls you in.

I admit I had never heard of Sarah Brightman prior to Repo but at the same time after watching the movie I could not imagine anyone else playing her. That is just how breathtaking her performance as Blind Mag really is.

My portrait is my adaptation of Bling Mag before she goes on stage for her “final” performance and I call it’ “It’s Too Late For Me”

One Eyed Doll is one of the bands I have teamed up with to do merch for and I must say they never fail to amaze me. I am honored to be a part of anything they are doing. That is why I had to take a moment to share their new music video for Afflicted! Seriously if you have never listened to them the time is now! They are one of the most unique artists out there and extremely talented to say the least!
