“Making It”

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Making It‘ is a documentary focusing on three working artists. One of them is my friend Andrew Bawidamann who has made quite a name for himself as a tactical artist.

 

 

Andrew had this to say:

So much went into making “making it”. It is still difficult to believe that it is actually finished and being released. We really wanted to make an HONEST DOCUMENTARY, not a 1.5 hour commercial for ourselves all the while trying to convince everyone how profound and cool we are so you buy our stuff. Check it out and enjoy the ride.

I’m a big fan of Sci-Fi/Fantasy and pinup art and really enjoyed the documentary. I stand in awe of their talent and do what I can to support their work. After all, these men are working artists, meaning this is how they pay their bills. All too often, I see their art used by those who don’t compensate them for their work. What I prefer to see, are folks supporting them as they can, by purchasing art in one form or another. With Andrew, he moved early on from prints to t-shirts and patches. Now, his work has extended to fusing art and hard goods such as pistol grips, knives and axes. His latest project of magazine pouches has had more of a design aspect than traditional art, but it is more than appreciated.

We don’t have many artists who specialize in tactical subjects. Since most of us enjoy their work, let’s do what we can to support them. One thing you can do is watch this documentary if only to raise your awareness of the challenges these artists face.

In my eyes, Andrew has made it but I hope that he keeps on pushing the envelope and cranking out new art.
