Atomic Powered

After I saw the movie Sky Captain In the World of Tomorrow, which by the way is an incredible eyegoggling spectacle of Sci-Fi Robots, spaceships, rayguns and monsters, (I think there were's been awhile ...... are Robots monsters? ) so, after seeing the movie (in a movie theatre!!!) with my son, we came home and started to build stuff with lego. I started to make many robots. Here is one of them. Powered of course with Atomic.... Love.

3D Smash

All right kiddies. Free Inside! 
.....or rather Free inside your mind. Because today in the Nakfactorium we have some 3D eye moggling to do. No special glasses are required. Just simple cross-eyed concentration. It's easy!
Here's how to do it.

First, click on or beside the image to get a larger view.
If you are familiar with these, just simply cross your eyes until you see the 3D action. 
If not so simple, then...  

2. Place your finger between the two images.
3. Slowly move your finger towards you while keeping a focus on your finger. A third image will slowly grow between the two images.
4. When this middle image is the same size as the other two, stop moving your finger towards you. 
5. Keep your focus on your finger. Do not change your focus to the image behind it.
6. Move your hand quickly away (don't change your focus ) and that middle image will be three-dimensionally clear!

Who are you Green Monster?

Here are some fun monster stickers that were wrapped around some candy. I think it was a block of taffy on a stick. The outer packages were hard to open without them ripping to shreds and the stickers inside mostly stuck to the candy. I don't remember the name of the candy nor could I find anything out about them except that the company Dos en Uno is a Chilean candy manufacturer owned by the Argentinian food producer Arcor.

Alter Ego Godzilla

Alter Ego Godzilla - 2012 - acrylic on illustration board - 15 x 20 inches

Leading up to my Godzilla weekend, during, and after it, I was working on this painting. There is definitely something different about it. All in it's colors and design and it's play. I'm a play-full guy, but not so much in my paintings. And I think I can contribute this to the spirit and energy held during G-Fest, the G-Fan magazine coordinated annual Godzilla convention held just outside Chicago. I had wished I was there, but since I could not go, I was there in spirit while I painted Godzilla. And I believe that I was channelling the fans at the convention. So this painting in a way, is more of a conglomerate of Godzilla fun. I'm in there too somewhere.

Here is a super fun cartoon that I wanted to share by the master cartoonist Gary Larson.
