These two awesome pieces by Brooklyn’s Kiersten Essenpreis bring to mind two things: 1. It’s nice to know that He-Man and Skeletor do regular stuff when not battling for control of the Universe and 2. I’m in serious need of a haircut. Ok, I actually think it’s also time for me to go in for a teeth cleaning, as well. However, while my hair may be reaching a ridiculosity of He-Manesque proportions, I’ll wager that my teeth are fairing a pinch better than Skeletor’s. Maybe not.
I digress. These two pieces that are flash on wood and sealed in resin are for the Upcoming MOTU-themed show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles next January.
From Kiersten’s blog:
I’ve been ridiculously excited about this ever since I was invited to participate months ago.. Opening on January 8th, Gallery 1988 LA presents their 4th annual tribute show, this time honoring He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!!
Being a super-ultra-mega fan from 1983-85, followed by a brief few months in ‘86, where I thought I might actually be She-Ra, you can imagine the fun I had painting these.
This is how I envision He-Man and Skeletor spending their days off; trimming the bowl cut and getting a root canal.. a very evil one.
