    Was I the only one expecting the title crawl medieval-ized?

    Speaking of Thailand and Star Wars mashups, if you are ever in the area of Chiang Rai, do not miss Wat Rong Khun.  You can’t take pictures of the inner sanctuary, where the mural is, so you really do have to kind of go yourself to appreciate it.  I notice the Wikipedia page doesn’t appear to have the sculpture of “Buddhist Hell” that you cross over to enter.  I’ll see if I can dig mine up.

    Oh, hey, I thought this had come up here before.

    Early Renaissance?  Am I revealing my complete ignorance of art history by saying I would have expected a medieval manuscript to have the perspective way more wonky than that?

    They look more like like icons http://www.christusrex.org/www2/art/images/icon07.jpg or panels from triptychs http://coosacreek.org/mambo/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/duccio-di-buoninsegna.jpg especially since they have the golden border on them.

    So cool!

    I also have a series of Star Wars-inspired paintings in the works. The suite is titled ‘SANDSTORM’ and it will show in the summer of 2013 at The Reach Galley Museum in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. 

    These epic-scale paintings will be done in the style of 19th century Romantic Painter Eugene Delacroix. Please check it out at:

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… a bunch of flat-headed flatlanders began to toy with the idea of perspective, ever so slightly.

  8. This is cool, but cooler is this traditional Malaysian shadow puppet version of Star Wars by Tintoy Chuo: http://thissortofthing.com/index/2012/9/4/malaysian-shadow-puppet-version-of-star-wars-in-the-works.html
