Since I thought to do a poster that glows in the dark I decided to look into how other artists manage to do this to find out what materials and methods they use to create glow in the dark posters.
I remembered an illustrator and artist I follow on instragram call Dino Tomic from Norway. He makes a lot of very impressive pieces and among them he has a variety of glow in the dark posters.
Rick and Morty Glowing art ( wait until the lights go out ) As a huge fan of the show it was so fun to do something with these awesome characters and make something that is not realistic ( been doing a lot of that lately ) =D As always i try to make something that reflects a part of the subject im painting =D in this case im referencing one of their episodes ; Season 3, Episode 6: Therapy Would Have Been Easier- everyone who has seen it should know what this is =D And everyone who has not seen it – WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ? =D i really recommend this show =D This piece was a commission – thank you very much for ordering =D

My glow in the dark art 🙂 Here is just a quick video on how the art works :)light on light of its that simple 🙂 the fight Club one is sold but I still have the other two available if anyone is interested 🙂 thank you all for all the interest in my work I answer about 1% of the mails I get and after I sell the particular image I don't even open the mails 🙂 reason is that my mailbox is maxed out 24/7 I get more mails than I have time to answer – even if I would make it my full time job to answer mails I could not keep up 🙂 sorry if you are the one that never heard back from me I hope you understand why 🙂 I also make only 1 of each of my work I never redo them for extra profit. I don't want my art to become an assembly line – I want it to be unique each time – I don't do this becouse of money I do it becouse I love what I do 🙂

I found out that Dino uses a glow in the dark powder mixed with an acrylic varnish or gloss of some sort so I decided to try this method myself. I went to http://www.glowtec.co.uk to purchase some glowing sand an awaited its arrival.
