I've recently started the utterly crazy project of painting every one of wrestling's world champions from all of the major North American promotions. That's around 208 different paintings, by my estimation!
Here's what I've done so far:
And to answer the most common question I get: Yes, I'm eventually going to paint the Vinces and David Arquette. In fact, Arquette tweeted last Sunday that he wants to buy the painting of him!
If you think this is cool, feel free to check out my Kickstarter project that's helping fund it. If for nothing else that the video's kind of fun to watch:www.kickstarter.com/projects/robschamberger/heavyweight-champions-of-the-world The response I've received since launching this has been phenomenal. There's the cool stuff like JR tweeting about it, but also the support from wrestling fans. Hell, my Facebook page has gained over 2000 new followers in the last week!
Anyway, enjoy the art and let me know if you have any questions about it!
Is there sort of a symbolism you're going for here? Sorry I just looked at the Ultimate Warrior one and it looks like his legacy is 'melting'. I have a huge appreciation for these, maybe you should post some of these on DeviantArt to get more exposure?
