press release -


Mad scientist vs. aliens from another world


THING 3-D STUDIOS  is pleased to present an
art form by new on the scene artist John Hoyt. Also an accomplished guitarist
and founder/co-founder of underground hard rock bands CONTACT and THING

of Hollywood and Orange County, California, Hoyt is forging a new path of
originality with his expression of "mad scientist vs. aliens from
another world" art showcase.  


The artworks are wall mounted guitars adorned
with various craziness. Hoyt is constantly evolving and stretching the artistic
boundaries which confine the planet as we know it. There are also some quite
tame works among Hoyt's guitar art although each one still approaches that edge of insanity. These pieces captivate your attention and devour any lack of
confidence in an artistic world that is seemingly sliding into an irreversible
step toward "the normal".
Most of the guitars are permanently mounted
on the artwork however your own guitar can also be immortalized by Hoyt. 
At request, the artwork can serve as a "docking station" and still be
easily removable for use.



 A selection of Johns guitar artworks will be on display at the Laguna Beach Art Walk on Thursday, December 5.

6 pm - 9 pm
