Q:And this led to other jobs?
A:"Sure. I've done shows with the Cartoon Network. I might be doing another one. I did a couple of things for some overseas magazines. I did some work for NASA and The Mars Society, and I was contacted by Gallery 1988.
"Gallery 1988, that was really exciting. That's the gallery where I got 'The Avengers' show. It's the gallery you want to be in if you do pop-culture art. They contacted me about selling prints of the 'Mario's Closet' design, and I've worked with them since."
Q:How did you get involved with "The Avengers" art show?
A:"Disney/Marvel contacted them about doing an officially sponsored show with the movie. Gallery 1988 gave the filmmakers a list of artists they'd worked with and the filmmakers hand-picked who they wanted in the show.
"It was very flattering, and something cool. After the show, the animation supervisor from the film contacted me. He wanted a print."
Q:So what's ahead for you?
A:"That's kind of the thing: The coolest stuff you aren't allowed to talk about, but I'm definitely staying busy."
