If something gets into your head during adolescence, it's almost impossible to get it out, which is why as evil as he was, Khan made it a policy to never use his ear-tunneling brain bugs on children. Channeling adolescent ideas into printed gold, Clint Wilson
A Stephen F. Austin grad in digital media design who's currently working the legislative session at the Capitol, Wilson prints cartoon-y posters influenced heavily by childhood obsessions in a garage studio that he shares with like-minded artist Tim Doyle (ask about the list of expectations tacked to the wall, and he'll say "Oh, Doyle Rules"). Latest releases include videogame twists on fine art, like a Princess Toadstool'd Mona Lisa and The Girl With the Pearl Earring Zelda-fied with Triforce jewelry; other adolescentry includes a series of French-paper dinosaur prints including heavy hitters like stegosaurus and triceratops, as well as lesser-knowns like the plesiosaurus, which might not be extinct if it'd been better at plesing the ladies. Or adapting to climate change. Wilson also offers nostalgia-dripping concert posters, with an ET-like creature emerging from a shell for seminal punkers X, a tentacled '50s-looking robot for They Might Be Giants, and an angry cartoon-mouthed teepee for Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World, who keep telling themselves it'll just take some time "until they're saying Jimmy Eat World and Foo Fighters"
On deck for Wilson are a pair of prints for an NYC show celebrating the Coen Bros and Tarantino: a sepia-toned, Greek-inspired O Brother, and a Japanese wood-block style number for Kill Bill -- a movie that, thanks to production delays, was forced to miss Caaaaannes!
