Crafting “Striking Back at Neon Dusk” was a journey close to my heart, as it drew inspiration from the unforgettable characters of “Clerks 2,” a comedy written by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. The film is memorable to me not only for its laugh-out-loud quotes but also for its underlying themes of friendship and self-discovery.

In the painting, I used the impressionist style, marked by loose brush strokes that provide a subtle definition to the subjects’ faces while emphasizing their overall posture and composition. This approach underscores the light and color dynamics rather than the minute details of the subjects.

The scene unfolds as the sun retreats, casting a soft light that illuminates the clouds and sparks eruptions of neon pink, purple, yellow, orange, and green across the sky. These hues, vibrant and full of energy, also stir a sense of nostalgia, reminiscent of the neon signs that once adorned cityscapes.

Even with the backdrop ablaze with color, the central focus remains on Jay and Silent Bob. The minimal detailing of their features encourages viewers to interpret the characters’ emotions and thoughts, while also accentuating the harmony between them and their environment. For me, this artwork symbolizes the lasting nature of friendship and the shared experiences that shape our existence.

In creating “Striking Back at Neon Dusk,” my intention was to craft a piece that pays tribute to a beloved film, while also reflecting on the universal themes of friendship and nostalgia, and celebrating the vibrant hues that infuse our world with life.
