Predatorstuff.com Introduces the Artwork of Robert Fordham and We’re Offering Exclusive Originals!

March 5th, 2008

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from one mister Robert Fordham, who took the time to drop me a note about how much he loved the site and that he wanted to send me some artwork that he had made. Now, I’ll admit up front and center that I was prepared for something a 12 year old drew up or something, which is still cool (I’ll NEVER not appreciate anything ppl want to share with me, especially their own artwork), but I was most definitely not prepared for what arrived in the mail 12 days later.


The ol’ mailbox had a large brown envelope crammed in there with Rob’s work and I had actually completely forgotten about him sending it to me. I checked the return address on the envelope and mumbled “what the hell is this now?” under my breath. It didn’t really look like a bill of any kind, so that’s always a plus. I could feel the cardboard inside so I knew it was something I shouldn’t fold (Ok the big DO NOT CRUSH OR FOLD written across the top also tipped me off), so I carefully opened the top with my trusty letter opener (large steak knife that was sitting on the drying rack in the kitchen) and pulled out a bagged piece of cardboard with some white papers against it. I open up the bag and pull out the papers and flip them over and my jaw literally hit the floor. The first thing I saw was the image shown above this paragraph, and you seriously have to see this in person to appreciate the detail of the ink, it’s insane.

This is an original inking he made on a very thick artpaper stock and he’s signed and dated it and left a nice note on the back for me. Wow, this is AWESOME! Then I look at the other papers, which are photocopies of… get this… BALLPOINT PEN “doodles” he’s made on regular paper. In fact, one of them has his Home Depot shopping list on it! Check these out:

Now, I went to design school and a specialized highschool for a 4 year intensive visual arts program, so I know quality, and Robert’s skills are insane and quite frankly, he should be joining Farzad at ADI doing creature concept designs. I quickly contacted Rob to basically shower him in compliments and gratitude for this awesome gift AND I wanted to see what we could do about getting some original work for Predatorstuff clients. Well, he’s agreed, so for a limited time, we will be selling ORIGINAL Predator artwork by Robert Fordham in the shop! These will be fully framed and ready to display in your studio/room/office and we guarantee you will freak when you see these in person just like I did. So stay tuned for when we announce these items in our shop (Please remember these are original signed pieces you will be buying, NOT prints or copies) and you’ll be able to grab one of these beauties for yourself.

Thanks for looking and please leave your comments below by clicking the comment button. I know Rob would LOVE to hear your feedback, so don’t be shy 🙂
