I’m putting together a piece for the gigantic upcoming Pokemon Battle Royale exhibition that is being organised by the Light Grey Art Lab. It’s an amazingly huge project where 151 artists are each responsible for drawing one of the original 151 Pokemon. I’m really excited to be in the show because I’m a bit of an old school Pokemon nerd, but also because this show will feature some of my favorite contemporary illustrators.
The Pokemon that chose me (that’s right, it was kind of the other way around to how Pokemon usually works) was Rattata. He’s…. a rat… but I’ll do my best with my awesome rat Pokemon. I WON’T LET YOU DOWN!
I’ll post some more preview shots over the next couple of days.
The show opens on the 20th of April and will have an online gallery that you can check out and purchase works from. All works will be prints, and available from the rock bottom price of only $40. That’s pretty kick ass really. If you have a favorite Pokemon, there is absolutely no excuse not to buy it.
