Very Happy to be invited to exhibit at the BOTTLENECK Gallery 's Feb. 7th group show "IT CAME FROM 1984".
A themed show about movies from 1984 that have had a huge impact on relevant pop-culture.
Ironically, I decided to choose "The TOXIC Avenger" because 14 years ago- TROMA films gave me my first Art Director position ( here's a very old toxic avenger vector from 1997 ( yeah- 2012 was when I posted it up on Behance..) and helped further my commercial design / illutsrator  career.
Cheers to Troma, CHeers to all of you.
 
The Toxic Avenger is a 1984 American superhero film released by Troma Entertainment.
It's about a skinny nerdy guy called Melvin, who is tormented daily by anyone and everyone who visit the gym that he works at in Tromaville New Jersey-USA. Finally one day, he's tricked into wearing a pink tutu and kissing a sheep. He is chased around the health club by other customers and jumps out of a second story window. He lands in a drum of toxic waste which immediately causes severe burns and disfigurement. Despite the burning chemicals even causing him to burst into flames, Melvin survives and stumbles home. Drawing a bath to try and scrub some of the chemical residue from his horribly scarred flesh, Melvin begins his transformation into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength. And is transformed into the TOXIC AVENGER.
