The Gold Watch

Saturday · 26 Dec 09 · 06:19 PM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: Art

EDIT [18:44]: I just checked and saw that the topic for this week is "Pioneer".  So I'm submitting this drawing for that, since Quentin Tarantino in my mind is a pioneer in cinema!

I had this idea sometime back, to do a bunch of drawings inspired by Quentin Tarantino movies (this because the typical collage type drawing wouldn't suffice — there are too many memorable characters from Tarantino's movies!).  The first one that I did was one of Christopher Walken as Captain Koons from "The Gold Watch" sequence in Pulp Fiction.  Here it is below —

Captain Koons in Pulp Fiction — Art by Karthik Abhiram

That was done with a black and a blue ballpoint pen.  The above image is a photo (not a scan) of the drawing, tweaked a bit using Curves in Photoshop.  And as you might have guessed, there is a video of me drawing this, which is embedded below —

I tried to replicate the Tarantino "trunk shot" in the video.  The typefaces used in the video are all from Tarantino movies — Friz Quadrata Bold, Avant Garde and Benguiat.  The music used in the video is called "Express to Goo Land" and is an early piece by my good friend Pablo Dictter.
