LOTS O’ NEWS!
IT’S FINISHED! A brand-new collaborative painting between myself and fellow Urban Contemporary artist C. KIRK was completed over the weekend! Additionally, I finished a new smaller piece on paper, as well! But, back to the collaboration:
Measuring in at a healthy 30 x 40″ on gallery-stretched canvas, the new piece, entitled “SONNETS + C-4 SERENADES” was a lot of fun to create…so much so, that we made to take a bunch of photos of it’s creation. This is the first time in my art career where I have had photos taken of me hard at work on a piece, so definitely check these out…you can view the “in-progress” photos on my Flickr page by CLICKING HERE.
I also finished work on a smaller piece on paper over the weekend, which is a female version of my piece “Hipster Shelf Life ©”, which sold a couple months ago:
The news is official: My Obama-themed art I created last year will be in the upcoming book “Designing Obama” written by Scott Thomas, the Design Director of the Obama campaign. The 360-page book is full-color and hardbound, highly crafted with an embossed sleeve. Forewords written by Steven Heller and Michael Bierut. The innovative thing is they are putting the book together “grassroots-style” just like the campaign, and are accepting pre-orders and pledges and are only printing enough books to satisfy the pledges so that natural resources are not wasted! I highly encourage you to check it out and make a pledge and get a book! Check out their site by CLICKING HERE!
