What can I say about artist Brian Steward? Obviously, he is incredibly talented and creative. I started following Brian because of a Giada print, but it takes more than Giada to keep me hooked. Brian certaibnly has a lot more in his body of work than just Giada.
Brian also is a funny guy. To quote his Facebook page, "I draw stuff. Horrifying things, sexy things, clever things and thingy things as well." Thingy things? Just what is a thing thing? Never mind. I probably don't want to know or he probably would try tricking me with his answer anyway.
I am excited that he has an upcoming movie project. His "Elephant Man of War" is being made into a movie. Brian was a bit tight-lipped on the details, but I made him promise to give us scoops as details are available. (In other words, I threatened to bug him at every convention.) From artist to movie-maker seems an interesting jump and I am excited to watch it all develop and to see the finished product. With Steward behind it, expect the unexpected.
My only real complaint about Steward sis that I am not pictured with him in his gallery on his site. He has several pictures with JohngysBeat.com favorite Traci Lords. He has pictures with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. I get all of that, but he also has pictures with some relatively unknowns. Where is Johngy?
I am the 316th best source for pop culture nuggets. JohngysBeat.com is in the top 10 million websites of all time. I have my own shirt. I have even been recognized and asked for pictures at a few conventions. Surely this must translate to something.
Maybe it is just an oversight on Brian's part. Hey, when you are mingling with the likes of Traci and Ace, I understand how Johngy might take a backseat. I am sure I will take my rightful place when things settle down.
Until then, I encourage everyone to check out the interview below. After that, head over to BrianSteward.com to see a lot of his great work and to get updates on his projects in the works. You might also eventually see Johngy on there.
