Flaming Lips, Timberlake and more name-dropping.
Bit of a strange one this.
I was the lucky recipient of a feature on JustinTimberlake.com back in July of last year. Then just last month the delightful proprietors of the site got in touch and asked me to create an portrait of Wayne Coyne – the singer bloke from The Flaming Lips – and make a video of myself drawing it.
It was an interesting experience, although I must admit there wasn’t a lot in the interview to really get my teeth into when it came to coming up with an idea, which explains the Evil Robot quote. I liked Wayne Coyne’s reaction to the question, which unfortunately ended up being deleted, so I’m not sure how much sense the whole thing makes now.
Anyway the post is up now on the website as the visual component of an interview with the aforementioned Mr Coyne. It’s a bit of a ‘mash-up’ with LA based artist SA Richard butting in every so often with his Big Painting. And to be honest it all seems a bit long to me.
Here’s the whole damn thing, regardless. Consider yourself warned.
