captain-america-3Civil War is happening!

The MCU fan base is already starting to look past The Avengers: Age of Ultron to the next epic battle Captain America: Civil War. MCU fan art is also taking a stand. In the Civil War between Captain American and Iron Man fan artists are positioning Steve Rogers to the left of the political dividing line and Tony Stark to the right of the line.

Don’t put that much truth in that. The positioning is probably more of an artistic choice than a political one. The blue of Captain America’s uniform is on the left side of the Color Wheel. Iron Man red is on the right side. The blue and red of the Spiderman uniform puts Peter Parker or whatever character iteration that plays Spidey squarely in the middle. (Now you know the origin for the real blue state and red state used in political geographic maps.)

The one poster that radically inverts this color divide is Orlando Arocena’s Civil War homage filled with his trademark vector art work. I especially like the semi-Ultron suggestion in the Iron Man body styling. Arocena is not afraid of being blunt about who he thinks the real villain of Civil War should be. Red is the oppressive color. The blue scream and agony of Captain America’s skull crushing is exceedingly visceral and brutal.

Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to be released everywhere on May 6, 2016.

Dissection of Mickey Mouse

Art and comics seldom presents the visceral truth— the teeming mass of body parts, gelatinous substances and fluids that make up our bodies. The fairly obvious reason is that the body is covered by so much skin. Without an inside there is no outside. No thoughts or emotions or maybe even a soul.
Modern Art is not indebted to a photo realistic portrayal of the world. It can warp and slice what we see into visions of perceptions. That is why Picasso’s Nude Descending a Staircase or his other Cubist paintings attempt to portray a 360 degree reality step by step. It tries to represent the flow of reality in the geometry of the every-day.

Pablo Picasso's "Guernica"
Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica”

Picasso’s one great attempt to present a visceral reality resulted in the preeminent masterpiece of the 20th Century- Guernica. Guernica explodes outward with a gut wrenching precision that displays the horrors of war through an internal death scream. Everything in Guernica is dying from the inside. The agony of the destruction is obvious. There is no need to show the bombs or body parts. Our imaginations fills in the horror.

The Viennese street muralist Nychos tries to fill in the missing visceral existence. Dissection becomes a form of Cubism in his hands. Dissection presents the layers in a way that is horrifying , beautiful (and unlike Guernica) also colorful.

Nychos takes his scalpel to both the animal and comic book world. He concentrates on giving the mythology of Mickey Mouse, The Little Mermaid, TNMT a visceral reality, an extra dimension that tries to make them mortal by showing the internal squishy reality.

Nychos dissections are not so much an attempt to destroy our childhood memories as they are an experiment to bring them in alignment with the real world.

In Nychos human dissections, particularly Apocalypse Weird (below) which can be described as Nycho’s Guernica tribute, you can see the cubists influence.

Layered over the Picasso homage is another homage to the Mexican tradition of Dias Des Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The dissections become multilayer Death Masques exposing all of human substance from muscles, organs, tissue and skeletons. The comic style rendering keeps the whole anatomy lessons from collapsing into revulsion and morbidness.

The animal dissections explore the notion that life and death coexist in the same space and time. Everything is awaiting its death, and its eventual immortality as a future discovered fossil or the dust under our feet.

Nychos: Follow the White Rabbit


leonard_nimoy

 

The death of Leonard Nimoy deserves a memoriam not full of celebrity tweets and quotes but full of love, life and Spock in his own words.

So this tribute art to the greatest Vulcan who ever lived is also filled with the wisest thing he ever said as both Spock and himself.

Tribute by Doaly

I’ll never really understand why I was chosen to play Mr. Spock. In a metaphysical sense, there seemed to be a sort of inevitability involved…. When I was called to meet Gene Roddenberry, I assumed I was to be auditioned. I didn’t quite know how to react when I discovered that I was being “sold” on the role.
–LEONARD NIMOY

 

Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to serve under them.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “The Ultimate Computer”

Tribute by Dutch Uncle

Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it`s not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Without followers, evil cannot spread.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “And The Children Shall Lead”

 

Tribute by Nick Caldwell

You know, for a long time I have been of the opinion that artists don’t necessarily know what they’re doing. You don`t necessarily know what kind of universal concept you’re tapping into.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Change is the essential process of all existence.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

Tribute by Andy Marlette

Art, if it is successful, needs no explanation. Star Trek and Spock, if they are works of art, can be discussed. But finally the response comes in individual terms. Each viewer sees what is there for him, depending on his frame of reference.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Insufficient facts always invite danger.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Space Seed”

Tribute by Francesco Francavilla

When you
let me take
I’m grateful.
When you
let me give
I’m blessed.
–LEONARD NIMOY

I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “This Side of Paradise”

Tribute by Kevin Tong

The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have.
–LEONARD NIMOY

I realize that command does have its fascination, even under circumstances such as these, but I neither enjoy the idea of command nor am I frightened of it. It simply exists, and I will do whatever logically needs to be done.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “The Galileo Seven”

Tribute by Artist Abe Lopez

Whatever I have given, I have gained.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Vulcans never bluff.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “The Doomsday Machine”

Tribute by Brian Kesinger

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.
–LEONARD NIMOY

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.
–SPOCK, Star Trek: The Original Series, “Errand of Mercy”

Tribute by Lord Mesa Art

I am not Spock. But given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock. If someone said, “You can have the choice of being any other TV character every played,” I would choose Spock. I like him. I admire him. I respect him.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
–SPOCK, Star Trek (2009)

Tribute By Mainger

Live Long and Prosper.
–LEONARD NIMOY

Live Long and Prosper.
–Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by Matt Needle

I think it’s my adventure, my trip, my journey, and I guess my attitude is, let the chips fall where they may.
Leonard Nimoy

“Fascinating.”

-Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by NinjaInk

My folks came to U.S. as immigrants, aliens, and became citizens. I was born in Boston, a citizen, went to Hollywood and became an alien.
Leonard Nimoy

“Captain, you almost make me believe in luck.”
Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by Patrick Ballesteros

I think about myself as like an ocean liner that’s been going full speed for a long distance, and the captain pulls the throttle back all the way to ‘stop,’ but the ship doesn’t stop immediately, does it? It has its own momentum and it keeps on going, and I’m very flattered that people are still finding me useful.
Leonard Nimoy

“If I seem insensitive to what you’re going through, Captain, understand – it’s the way I am.”

Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by Rob Wilson

That is the exploration that awaits you! Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.
Leonard Nimoy

“May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed serving with Humans? I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant.”

Spock, Star Trek

Tribute by Peter Raccoon (Jason Wilkins)

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

Leonard Nimoy (His last tweet)

“Your logic was impeccable, Captain. We are in grave danger.”

Spock, Star Trek
