I feel very honored and privileged to announce that I will be curating and participating in an official POPEYE art show in collaboration with King Features Syndicate.
“STRONG TO THE FINICH! AN OFFICIAL POPEYE TRIBUTE ART SHOW,” will celebrate 85 years of Popeye the Sailor!
Over 100 artists from around the world will pay their own unique tribute to the legendary sailor, created by E.C. Segar in 1929.
Popeye has meant a lot to me over the years. Since I was 4 years old I always associated Popeye with my grandfather, who was a decorated sailor from the Ecuadorian Navy. I admire them both greatly.
Popeye (E.C. Segar & the Fleischer Bros) has also been a major influence in my own artwork.
4 years in the making, and it is a dream come true that this art show is almost here. The show will premiere on September 5th, 2014 at HERO COMPLEX GALLERY (7-10pm).
