Alx a.k.a. Begemott, is a New York-based artist whose work speaks of an imagination both broad in scope and depth. His art is at times wistful, childish, morbid, or playful. His work “Sweet Halloween Dreams” has recently come to the attention of Hollywood and a film loosely based on his work is already in the works. When asked about it, Begemott responded: “I think that the drawing implies a larger story, and it’s probably easy to relate to. The night is scary when you are a kid, and I’m sure many children have comforted themselves by imagining that something in the room protected them from all the imaginary dangers in the dark.” The film is to be produced by none other than Dwayne “The Rock" Johnson in collaboration with New Line Cinema.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
