"Pulp Surrealism" 2005-2006

Conception:
In 2004 I started a series of pulp fiction and old science fiction movie - inspired works that combined painting, drawing and digital artistry. The resulting series was exhibited and published as a limited edition and signed catalogue with a preface by cultural historian Professor Robin Walz (Univ. Alaska South-East) who had written an academic treatise of the same title, ie. Pulp Surrealism.
