I Forgot My Line | Pop Culture Art
A friend asked me to paint a painting of a neon sign he had seen and I couldn't end up completing it due to the cheesy nature of the sign alone, stating "All We Have Is Now."
My girlfriend told me to throw a troll in there, so I did. Still wasn't satisfied, so I decided to make the troll up to no good, and gave him a spray paint can as evidence.
The letters are raised out of the painting, like a neon sign would have, and are made from caulk. I applied them with a tube and then used water to mold them into the painting.
I hope viewers laugh when they see this painting because of the adorable mischievous troll paired back to a saying related to hardcore drugs and vandalization. It's a winning combo!
I chose the materials because I knew what I needed to use to create the desired raised letter effect I was going for. Knowing the materials and how they interact/what they are ideal for is crucial when creating artwork.
