JSP Is Getting Punked
From the Great State of New Jersey and the Beautiful City of Paris, France…..
Get set for some truly innovative, creative work.
A few post back, I mentioned Stefan Prohaczka, a graphic design artist from Paris who brought Bard Cosntantine’s The Troubleshooter book cover using one of my noir images.
Since then, Stefan and I have been emailing back and forth. We’re thankful Bard found us both and are excited to see where this partnership can take us.
Stefan has such an interesting creative angle that he works with. He’s based in vintage, and straddles the line between dieselpunk and steampunk artistic movement.
What is dieselpunk? According to the Dieselpunk Encyclopedia:
Dieselpunk is a sub-genre of the pop surrealist art movement and a budding sub-culture that combines the aesthetics of the interbellum period through World War II, and ending before or at the early 1950s, with postmodern technology and sensibilities. According to the article “Discovering Dieselpunk” the word “Dieselpunk” was coined in 2001 as a marketing term by game designer Lewis Pollak to describe his role-playing game Children of the Sun, dieselpunk has grown to describe a distinct style of visual art, music, motion pictures, fiction, and engineering.
You can see where our styles and interests overlap, and why there is a fit.
He’s viewed my images. I’ve viewed his work. He’s asked for a one or two other images of mine to work with. The first creation he came up with, Night And The City, is above.
Killer cool, right? Then, sitting around a rainy Parisian Sunday, he did an other quick workup that he sent me.
I’ve given him carte blanche to use any of my images however he wants to. I can’t wait to see where this partnership is going to go.
I’m sure you’ll be hearing, and seeing, much more about Stefan around these parts.
Now, if I can only get him out to Jersey for a photoshoot…
