What You Need Is Someone Strong To Guide You - Tool. - MGYOUNEEDSE  Giclee On Canvas

NOTES: Stickman What You Need Is Someone Strong To Guide You - Tool. No other band in the last thirty years has had the impact on me that Tool has. Aside from the fact that their music is like nothing Ive ever heard before and completely mesmerizes me, their approach to the music industry itself intrigues and inspires me. Almost everything Tool does in their approach is in direct contrast to the regular blueprint. At first, in the early nineties (pre-internet), their ambiguity was a source of frustration for me, but over the years has become part of the allure and charm. A recent concert I attended in Toronto had them performing behind a semi-transparent curtain for the fist 45 minutes. I could hear some displeasure from the people surrounding me, but I simply smirked while thinking–how very Tool of them. When the band announcement in the spring that they would finally release their first album in 13 years in late August, I immediately had them back in high rotation around the studio. Of course, with an increased focus, the ideas for Tool pieces came flooding in. This piece was the first to hit the easel, but another two Tool pieces have been added to queue to be visited later. The cult following the band has always weighs heavy on my mind when thinking of appropriate titles for Tool pieces, and Maynards mystique and messiah like qualities during a live performance only add to this. For these reasons I always seem to circle back to their early offering, “Opiate”, and this time is no different. Something about this piece and the lyric, "What you need is someone strong to guide you", just seemed to fit. .

Stickman bio

Trevor “Stickman” Stickel specializes in icon based, pop-realism portraits that capture legendary moments, powerful ideas, and raw emotion. His work is described as gritty-yet fresh, complex-yet simple. Graduating from a Jekyll and Hyde influence early in his career, in which he divided his time between family portraits and airbrush design work on helmets and Harleys, Stickman had the epiphany to combine both styles while reading “According to the Rolling Stones”. Two weeks later he finished his first canvas portrait of Mick Jagger, aptly titled “Please allow me to introduce myself”, which forever changed the direction of his career in the art world. THE MISSION The idea or "mission" behind Stickman’s artwork is to create an artistic tribute to the music and to the musicians that have had a tremendous impact on him and many others. Historically, these tributes would have been limited to photos/posters that adorned the bedroom walls of teenagers and dorm rooms throughout adolescence. Stickman aims to create a style of art that brings these iconic figures back into our lives, and in a manner that adults can display proudly in their homes. THE CONCEPT The concept is to take a realistic portrait and juxtapose it with a background that expresses the feelings and emotions of the subject. This method also allows Stickman to explore other disciplines of art – many of his backgrounds will include abstract, expressionism, impressionism, realism, pop art, street art, surrealism and quite often a combination of these. This is where he gets to enjoy the artistic side of these pieces, while paying additional homage to some of his favorite visual artists. THE HIDDEN MESSAGES AND SYMBOLS In addition to the art itself, Stickman also adds (and quite often hides) his trademarked Stickman symbol (stick figure with devil horns) and the statement "Devil Inside" to the painting. • The Stickman symbol is derived from Stickman’s last name (Stickel) and a common phrase he hears from viewers, "I can't even draw a stick man". The horns represent rock and roll (his primary focus), which is generally regarded as the devil’s music, and references the duality of man (good vs. evil). • The statement "Devil Inside" also references this Jekyll and Hyde type of duality. Stickman often feels there is a difference between Stickman the artist and Trevor Stickel the person. When focused on a subject and working on a piece, he often gets so involved in the subject he finds himself emulating them in the way he dresses and acts, similar to a method actor. • The signature on the bottom right corner usually shows the Stickman symbol imitating the subject. THE TITLE The title of each piece is often overlooked but may very well be the most important piece of the puzzle. Stickman looks for a lyric that he believes personifies the subject or his feeling toward that subject and from there, begins to create an image and feeling that takes the viewer to that emotional state of mind. The titles are always a lyric from the subject's song but never the title of a song. If the viewer is a fan of the subject, they should almost hear the lyric or feel the emotion of the lyric when looking at the piece. Knowing the title completes the emotional connection to the painting and usually reveals a personal trait about the subject.
