here are some pictures from the "Mail Me Art" show reception that took place last night in London at Red Gate Gallery. The project is the creation of Darren Di Lieto, the founder of the illustration website Little Chimp Society. Artists from all over were invited to send in artwork done on envelopes, boxes, postcard-sized pieces of paper etc to be compiled into an exhibition. There are over 700 pieces of art for sale! A book will also be made from a selection of some of the artwork. I was really excited to be part of this with so many great illustrators and artists!
The pictures below are from talented illustrator and graphic designer Thereza Rowe, who was lucky enough to attend the show.
My contribution is in the fourth picture down (black postcard right in the middle).

I recently received my copies of "Attack of the King," an album I created the artwork for in collaboration with Solid State Records. Just thought I'd post some photos of the final product. The tri-fold cd case is the deluxe edition which includes a dvd.

Appropriately named "Black Sketchbook II Video" (because this is my second black moleskine sketchbook I have filled) is now available to watch on youtube. It took me 3 years of on and off drawing to fill this thing. I wasn't consistent in working on it at all, and pretty much took a two year hiatus from it altogether when I started to do more gallery work, but here it is at last.

I have some work in the newest issue of CARNE Magazine. "CARNE is an independent digital magazine destined to promote contemporary art and design." It's based in Buenos Aires.
This issue is packed with lots of artwork and can be downloaded here!
This past week and a half I have been away working on a mural project for my cousin and her husband in Virginia. They asked me if I would be into painting the nursery for their soon to be newborn baby. The mural itself is Dr. Seuss themed. The room ended up looking great. I was initially slightly concerned about a few things. 1) translating another person's work (in this case Dr. Seuss who has a instantly recognizable style with whimsical linework) 2) drawing something that was originally small and making it much much bigger 3) taking the original drawing that are done in ink with a pen, and doing them with paint and paintbrush on the wall. I didn't know how the crosshatching and all that would look when done with paint, or if I could do it well enough. But all my fears were for nothing because it wasn't that hard overall, just time consuming. I'll post pictures soon!
