I’ve been wanting to feature Adam Warren in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day for a while now, but just didn’t find something that clicked until now.Â I had a chance to see the new G.I. Joe trailer a few days ago, and it blew my mind.Â Yes, it looks cheesy and over the top with the special effects and slowmotion fight scenes, but I really want to see it.
Behold: A wheezingly ancient (well, circa 2002) sketch I did for DAâ€™s own. Despite the age of the piece (and the fact that Iâ€™m no longer fond of my 2002-era facial stylings), I thought it might be apropos after seeing the preview for the BARONESS movie… Er, I mean the GI JOE movie, whateva. (Srsly, said preview seemed to feature the Baroness in every other shot.) Not that I give a crap about the GI JOE franchise overall, BTW… though I do appreciate the fine RESOLUTE designs that devilpig’s been posting.
Scanned from a high-contrast photocopy, which doesnâ€™t aid the repro quality very much… Oh, well.
