American Illustration 28

If the beginning of this year couldn't get any better, it just did. I just got an email saying that the two pieces above got into AI28 web gallery. I am very excited and flattered to be among the other artist to be represented in the 28th annual American Illustration show.

The piece on the left is about a story I read in the Atlantic monthly. A seasoned Book Tour salesmen, is stuck between a rock and a hard place, because he sick of his job selling books (that he has been doing for 15 years!) but at the same time he can not see himself doing anything else.

The piece on the right is a portrait of one of my best friends Andrew Stiles. I tried to capture Andrew as he naturally is. Spontaneous, and full of energy that catch's you off guard.

Again, this is very flattering news and it is such an honor to be part of this annual.

A little over a week from now....

I will be having a piece in a group show at Mug shots cafe here in Philadelphia, PA, called "Heart Earth". The show will consist of over 30 artist that are part of the illustration collective, The Autumn Society. The works of art deal with the contemporary issue of creating a greener cleaner environment or some play off of optimism toward the environment.

Hope to see you there!

The image above is one of the pieces I am going to be silk screening this week and next week so I can create a store section. One print of which is the show poster I added to my portfolio.

Communication/Ely Thesis #3: Lifetime Record Cover

I am pleased to announce that I got a piece into the 3x3 illustration magazine student show. A merit to be exact. When I found out, I jumped out of my chair. I was even more surprised when I found out that it was the piece above.

It's actually kind of funny. I added this piece last minute, because it was one of my thesis project pieces that I kinda liked. The file I sent though was revised later on. The hand on the girl pointing is now drawn better, the tattoo was removed for the ely but I put it back for the post, and the same guys pattern is different from what I submitted. I hope they don't mind me sending them the revised version for hanging later this year and if they ask for a new file for me to give them, I hope to send them the revised.

We'll see! Back to drawing...

No Sleep Means Family Silk Screens

4 color Silkscreened Promotional Poster for No Sleep Records (Yellow, Gold, Brown, Orange)

I just got done signing 100 of these screen prints and man is my arm tired. I have to ship these prints out in the next few days, so that they will be available to purchase at the No Sleep Records Store in the next week or two.

I talked to Chris at No Sleep, and he said they will be sold for somewhere between $15 and $25 a print with free shipping.

Super Stoked about it!
