LIID Week 86: Drowning Aquaman! by johntrumbull LIID Week 86: Drowning Aquaman! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #86, 4/18/12: Comic book characters mashed up with classic paintings! I chose Aquaman in Roy Lichtenstein's "Drowning Girl". Interesting challenge to try and draw/letter as badly as Roy Lichtenstein (not a fan).

For this one I tried to do a Nick Cardy/Alex Toth Super Friends style Aquaman head, as I thought it would blend decently with the simplified/flattened style Lichtenstein used. Now that it's finished, I'm seeing a bit of Don Heck in there, too (Loston says it's the mouth).

The other entries for this week can be seen here: [link]

The "original" Lichtenstein piece, "Drowning Girl" can be seen here: [link]

The REAL original art by Tony Abruzzo from SECRET HEARTS #83 can be seen here: [link]

UPDATE: My pal Rob Kelly is featuring this piece on his great website, The Aquaman Shrine, today! Check it out: [link]

As I'm studying history of art and curating at graduateschool,

in the semester

I need some information of pieces sometime,

 

And this time, I'd like to know more about your piece and Roy Lichtenstein's work -Drowning Aquaman and Girl-

 

 

I'll wait for your answer.

 

p.s. (And how can I get more information about your works?)

My old classroom had a mural based off the Lichtenstein piece painted on the wall. I honestly think I would have preferred your piece. Instant classic :)

That deconstructing Lichtenstein is a great page... too bad all the GREAT art is all covered in macros.

Yeah, that seems rather unfair considering that Lichtenstein's versions are better known by far.
