Current Shows + The Ark Project Book

The LOST show at Gallery 1988 tonight was amazing...lots of really awesome work! Plus I was really happy to discover that my piece sold! If you didn't get a chance to drop by the gallery tonight, the show will be up until Christmas Eve. Also, congrats to friends and fellow Otis illustrators Danielle Buerli and Luke Berliner for selling their pieces as well!

Here's my piece for the show in its frame (sorry the picture's a bit blurry):



Over at Gallery 1988 San Francisco is the Paper Pushers show, which opened last week. My piece, "Adrift," is still up for sale if you are interested. You can view it and the rest of the show here: http://g1988pp09.blogspot.com/

Finally, The Ark Project Book is out and for sale. You can purchase it here: http://idnworld.com/books/?id=ark
I received my copy not too long ago and was blown away by all the wonderful work inside! I'm really glad to have been a part of this project, so thanks to DGPH for inviting me!

LOST

I was invited to be part of the LOST Underground Art Project, a show at Gallery 1988 L.A. celebrating LOST. It's probably my favorite tv show, so I was really excited when I was asked to participate.

Here's my piece:



"No Man Is an Island"
Ink and acrylic on paper
10.75" across

This piece is in the same vein as the last painting I did, but it features one of my favorite characters on the show, Ben Linus, as well as some other references to LOST.
When I get a picture of it in its awesome octagonal frame that I found I'll post it here.

The opening is on Tuesday, December 15th from 7 - 10pm. Hope you can make it to the show! If you're a fan of LOST, you'll definitely want to check it out!

Push It Good

This is the painting I did for this year's "Paper Pushers" show at Gallery 1988 San Francisco. After a terrible case of artist's block, I'm finally happy with the outcome.



"Adrift"
Ink, acrylic, and gouache on paper
11" x 17"

This is probably one of the most personal works I've done, but I managed to keep it open to interpretation as well as in the same vein as my previous work.
It will be for sale at the "Paper Pushers" show, which opens Friday, December 11th (opening reception will run from 7 - 10pm). Hope you can make it if you're in the area!
