BossLogic Talks Art, Instagram And LGX Weekly [EXCLUSIVE] Close Please agree to the terms and conditions. Email * Kode Abdo, known as BossLogic to the internet, is the digital artist behind the Instagram and Twitter accounts thousands of fans click to when they want to see what a rumored actor looks like as Cable or Felicity as a costumed vigilante , for example. He reimagines posters like The Flash Gorilla City event in Kong -style. He delivers timely memes about the stupid shit Barry Allen does. His ‘Safety First’ condom series guarantees the lulz. His pop headshots fill our social media accounts with colorful renditions of your favorite rapper, video game avatar or comic book character. BossLogic pumps out project after project like a machine and is as active on social as any member of the media, but when it comes down to it, he’s just a regular guy who loves everything his fans love. “This is Kode. It's just me, but I will be expanding Bosslogic,” Kode tells iDigi. “While working on my real work, if I see something tweeted or funny, I whip up something real quick, I find this fun. I do see the formula used by big sites and I don’t want to turn into that. At the end of the day, I still want to be me, whoever that may be.” Even though BossLogic’s timeline is heaven for super fans, for Kode, it’s never been about the number of followers. “The world is a negative place and we all have our dark days. I put my mind in my work hoping to get lost in it, and you see this with my original works. Artists use this avenue to escape reality, which is why I tell all artists that are trying to get somewhere with it, don't do it for numbers and fame, that stuff fades, do it to be able to transfer the images in your mind to a canvas to be appreciated.” Part of the reason BossLogic has gained so much popularity over the years, aside from his first big break with this rendition of Tyrese Gibson as Green Lantern , is the fact fans can instantly recognize his work. Kode says it’s his bright style that allows scrolling fans to look at his art and automatically identify it with his stroke. “It is most definitely the glowing. Some hate it, some love it. I enjoy bright lights and neons so I implement it into my works. One artist I look up to is Pete Harrison. He had amazing works with lights and I was inspired to do the same, but I kicked it up a notch. Sometimes I think I kick it too much.” BossLogic’s projects for TV shows such as The Flash or Arrow bear a fantastical edge that we don’t get to see in live action. BossLogic reimagines posters, portraits and supersuits in a way that makes you feel like the characters are jumping out of the pages of a comic book. “Comic book artists are some of the most hard-working and underappreciated people. I would love to be a comic cover artist. I have always loved making covers/posters the initial work that make the viewer pick it up and buy. For example if you look at the current GOTG 2 posters, I would have so loved to be on that project, so jealous of the colors they are getting to use.” While BossLogic’s distinct approach is part of the reason his projects and social media posts are so clickable, it’s also because fans see and respect how much he’s grown over the years as an artist. “That being said, you see the style a lot now. Many have taken it on board so I am trying to change up. It is all about progression and moving forward with your art. Never been a fan of being called a mimic genre, so keep trying to evolve.” We see this exploration of artistry with many of BossLogic’s more recent undertakings, the most popular being his pop headshot series. The faces of this ongoing series include Genji, Zelda, Groot, Kendrick Lamar, Bruce Lee, and chances are at least one of your favorite comic book superheroes. “I love the concept of mug shots so I wanted to do that with a few characters, ended up being 200+. It started off as a project to get me to draw likeness better, and thankfully it helped a lot.” BossLogic is still constantly challenging himself to be better. One of the most recent examples of this is his Logan tribute, which he made just one day after he saw the film. “That piece was hard since I made it one day after seeing the movie. I took all the elements that stood out in the movie to me. I could have added a little more but I did not want it clustered. This movie meant a lot to me. It did not even need powers to be powerful and that is what I wanted to make. Hugh is one of my fav people in the world and he deserves a worthy send-off.” BossLogic is also straying a bit out of his comfort zone with LGX Weekly. His gossip magazine leaves the style he’s known for behind and focuses on commentary about anything going on in the realm of comic books. “I wanted to poke fun at some flaws in the shows I love without sounding like a person speaking ill of the shows, so what better way than a gossip magazine? We read them for entertainment and we don’t have to believe a word they say. I come up with the headlines, some weeks are real hard to think of, but I try.” As far as what’s next, BossLogic teased that he’s going to try and push himself on content for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Deadpool 2. Since our interview, BossLogic has released a few big new pieces. Check them out below and let us know what you think in the comments. Make sure to check out BossLogic's prints here.
