His Bio: “Hello there!  I’m glad you could make it.  I am Rocky Davies and so am I.  Ha, after looking around at my site I’m sure you’ve noticed that I like to do a wide variety of things.  This is true and its worked so far and so I am sticking to it.  I like to let the project define the style that I work in instead of letting my style define the projects I get hired for.  That has allowed me to work in a large range of fields from books to cartoons to video games to t-shirts and so on.

I love variety.  I love switching it up and tackling a new challenge.  If you need an artist that can think on their feet and adapt to nearly any situation, I’m your man.  If on the other hand, you want an art-bot that kicks out preprogrammed homogenized slush, then call Robert Finklebum Art & Linoleum.  They come highly recommended and can treat your rain gutters at the same time.

As a history lesson, I grew up as a product of the 80’s and so the majority of my influences started there.  I grew up watching cartoons, reading comics, collecting toys, playing video games, and drawing, drawing, drawing.  All of that mashes together in my collection of work.  I would fill sketchbooks with all kinds of crazy images since I was able to hold a pencil.  I took all the art classes I could in school and then went on to get a BFA in illustration from BYU in 2003.”

Godzilla: 28 Years In The Making

28 years in the making.

godzillarebornWhen Godzilla 1985 came out (1985), this is my first introduction to drive in movie theaters. If remember correctly Pee-wee’s Big Adventure  was also the other double feature. I remember as a kid I absolutely love this movie, or any other monster movie that you can think of. Oddly enough a lot of childhood heroes were from monster movies or some type of scifi. Like Alien, Terminator, RoboCop, Predator, Godzilla etc..

So we fast forward about 28 years, to present day with the newest Godzilla just coming out. I found out, about an hour away there was one drive in movie theater that was happening to show the new Godzilla (2014).

I knew right away I had to take my son to go see Godzilla. I guess create new tradition of sorts. Up till this point my son had never seen Godzilla, so I made sure he had at least see some of the older ones first. Showing him some of the classic Godzilla from 1954, then to 60’s and 70’s and even the 80’s & 90’s.  Haven’t really shown him the Godzilla with Matthew Broderick in it…. Kind of staying away from that one.

It’s kinda sad to think that drive ins are slowly becoming extinct. A lot of my favorite childhood memories came from the drive ins. I believe everyone at some point in their life need to go to a drive in theater.
