Arch Nemesis Show

Hero Complex Gallery is curating an art show called “Arch Nemesis”, an art show themed around arch villains. The opening for the show is Friday May 24, 2013. I got wind of this event and immediately started on some fabric art pieces focusing on Marvel villains. I did Magneto’s helmet out of yarn using weaving techniques, Dr. Doom’s mask out of felt and fleece using a technique in the paper craft world known as quilling, and finally made an elaborate mask based on the Green Goblin. They all varied in difficulty of construction and the amount of time to finish.

I learned to read at the age of three with your standard children’s books, but also with  my older brothers comics, well, at least the one’s he’d let me get my greasy little mitts on. I grew up flipping through Omega Men, Billy Bayou, Toxic Avenger, Conan, The What If Series, X-Men, X-Factor, X-Statix, Spiderman, Superman, and Batman. Comic books and graphic novels are my jams. My favorite of the sequential arts.

Anywhos, here are the pieces I made for the show!

First off is the piece entitled “Dr. Loom”.

Next is “Magnus Bis Tincto”, which basically translates to “Yarn Magneto.”

And then we have the Green Goblin called “Green Feltin'” :
