When I have spare time, I catch up on television or reading. When Tony Hodgkinson has spare time, he creates striking canvas paintings inspired by characters from pop culture. All uses of spare time are valid, obviously, but Tony does have more to show for his efforts. His art, done with acrylic paint, is mostly tackled after his kids have gone to bed. He infuses his work with the kind of lighting that makes the images look like they’re glowing from within. You can see what I mean in this Guardians of the Galaxy Groot art:
And Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in this Star Wars painting definitely stands out. You can tell his lightsaber is fiery and sort of spits.
Make a beeline to the gallery below to see more of Tony’s lovely work. You’ll find another piece inspired by The Force Awakens, some BioShock, Interstellar, and even an illustration from The World’s End. For Tony’s complete portfolio, stop by his website or go keep up with him on Instagram.
Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I’d like to highlight what you do. If you’re interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work. If you’re not an artist, feel free to email me with recommendations for Fan Art Friday!
