13 Nights 2011 They Live by Grimbro 13 Nights 2011 They Live by Grimbro
Today's 13 Nights is John Carpenters classic alien invasion flick, They Live. I could go on and on at how profound this movie is. It is as appropriate, if not more, to the social ills that face our society today. But that's not why I post here. This is about cool aliens and fun paintings. So lets just stick to that. ;)

I really burned through this one. Not to say that I did not give it care. I just really had my brush mojo going. I was going to go back in and clean it up a little but it looks so pure with energy I left it

Cheers
Grimbro

Sadly it appears the remake is not going to be faithful to the original movie whatsoever! Sigh, just like the remake of the Thing.

Where's John Carpenter when you need him?

If I had painted this, I would've found someway to subliminally put "OBEY" into the picture, but then again, I didn't make it, you did.

The problem is we are so pelted by type day in and say out that ANY type put into a picture suddenly becomes the focal point. This painting was not about the message that the movie was trying to convey but the look of the aliens themselves.

That said, who is to say that OBEY is not hidden in there. Maybe you should look closer.

I love this movie. "I'm here to kick ass and chew gum, and I'm all outta gum."
