COVERED! EXHIBIT
Photobucket

      Inspired by a similar theme at the Covered blog (www.covered.blogspot.com) HEADSPACE curator Dan Merritt has assembled several pieces by artists that have brought their own touch to famous, and infamous comic book covers from several different decades.

    "The theme for this exhibit has really sparked a creative flame." says Merritt "Each of these pieces has been lovingly recreated in tribute to the original art and the original artists that created them."

    Featured in the exhibit will be works from Michigan based comic creators Paul Sizer, Matt Feazell, and Sean Bieri. Joining them will be other well known local artists Eric Millikin, Jennifer Rose Evans, and Chris Houghton. The Covered exhibit also features new work by many others, including Bryan Durren, Heather Hansma, Lizz James, Jesse Hughes and a piece by Masheka Wood from New York.

Lizz James
I was born twenty-two years ago. "Baby B," that's me. I was born five minutes after my brother, Robert. I happened to snatch all of the creativity I have from both of my grandpas, but my name from my grandmas. I've been painting/drawing/coloring/doodling/creating since the Fourth grade. I found out that portraits are my forte in my Senior year of High School while painting Uma Thurman and Daryl Hannah in Kill Bill. I paint more guys than girls, but girls are prettier than guys. I don't really know how that works. As long as I am doing something creative, I'm happy.

Eric Monster Millikin
Yes, that's me, occult scientist, artist, dream-weaver, visionary. This is my experimental painted diary, all about monsters I love and government monsters that try to stop me. I am inspired by the works of Doctors King, Frankenstein, and Seuss. Some people want to destroy all monsters; I want to make friends with monsters, study monsters, and paint monsters.
