Jack Perno's statement about SCREAMIN' MIKE:
This is the only image where Photoshop has been implemented. I had an illustrator friend who, for 35 years, occasionally worked on my images. In the beginning, he used an airbrush to paint on them and eventually moved to Pshop.
I asked Mike to stick his head through a large Portal and pushed smoke through for effect. My illustrator friend took the images and just experimented without any input from me. I like the way we made the 2 Mikes going at each other, so I just kept it. There were other images where I put him into an environment or story, but they didn’t quite work. I make an effort to avoid the dangers of cliché but I like visual risks.
Jack Perno's statement about THE PORTAL SERIES:
A gateway from one place to another, a world, a time , or to an expanded awareness.
Each image is a story or narrative, which susceptible to multiple interpretation, encouraging the viewer to derive their own conclusion and personal meaning.
