In my never ending quest to bring art to animators and filmmakers (cough- what geeks- cough) today I'm featuring artist Johnny Rodriquez, otherwise known as KMNDZ. He paints a lot of robots, which makes all the hipster animation geeks happy, but his content and technique are worth a glance beyond the simple Juxtapoz mag spread.It's no shock that he had/has a huge commercial career, his stuff is very appealing to agencies looking for an interesting look... but his personal stuff is what really resonates for me. There's a lot of "crossing over" type content, and there seems to be a loud voice of personality trying to break free, coupled with a sorrowful mystery and innocence.. even discovery(above).. which is always relative to all of our lives. Enjoy, and turn off your TV.... wussies. oh.. happy labor day ya barney's.
