Goodies for you, Vacation for me

The shows this June kept me very busy. Following the shows I worked on a few commissions and had a couple paintings filmed in an upcoming independent movie set in Brooklyn called 'Leaving Circadia'.
The illustration I've been slaving over I can't show yet, have to wait for the release, but it should be in a few weeks. I drew a four panel cover for Victorian Hall's debut album released by Victory Records. It was a really awesome project.
When I have pictures and updates for both I'll be sure to share.

The Sakura Exhibition came to a close in NYC, and the prints were sold for charity for the Japanese natural disasters. 'The Lovers' print of mine, found a home, I'm very glad. The artists involved made desktop wallpapers with a sample of their work.

Check out the other artist's on the Sakura website.

I have something a little more personalized for you. I made custom patterns for the Victorian Halls project, but I didn't use this one so I decided to make patterned desktop wallpapers. Whatever system or screen resolution you have, they will work. They may even work with mobile devices if you have advanced settings. When you apply it as your desktop make sure you set it to 'tile'.
I don't mind if you share them, just credit me with a link to my work.

Choose from Rose, Mint or Lavender.

Sample of what it looks like tiled:

Later this July on the West Coast is the Launch 2011 Music, Design, and Fashion Festival. At the Greens Hotel I will have a room full of my work on display. Theres a lot of information for this show, please go to their website to read more.

This next week I'm going to be house sitting upstate and it is going to be a drawing and painting vacation for me. I have some personal work I want to indulge in, and a 3x3 ft private commission to get started on. Odin is coming along with me.

I'll be back with new work, way over due for an update, gotta get the website sorted out too. Enjoy the start of summer!

Faces of the Apocalypse 2/4 & 4 Current Exhibitions

I have to get in the shower and get down town a bit early to continue my painting. It always seems like I'm rushing. There are not enough hours in a day. 

The Contrast Art Show is tonight. 320 West 37th Street, New York City. 14th Floor 5 pm- 1 am. Lots of art, live performances, and I'll be continuing a live painting. The first night was yesterday, if you haven't caught this show before, be there tonight!

A few blocks away the Sakura Exhibit is open until June 16th. 147 West 35th Street, New York City. Open 10 am- 8 pm, Sundays 12- 6 pm. 

Opening in Amsterdam tonight at 7pm is The Pornsaints Exhibition. Open until August 31st at The Erotic Museum. Oudezijds Achterburgwal 54. Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Also going on now is Anata Gallery's online exhibit. There is a vast variety of work to look at. Art book coming soon.

First two drawings of the Faces of the Apocalypse series. I ran out of materials so there is only one being painted at the show.
Sexual conquest/pestilence, followed by war. Look out for famine and death. I already drew them, but I'm really focusing on upping my quality. I'm reworking, redrawing, repainting as much as I need to. Slower, but better in the end. These also have changes from the scan to how they look on the paper and wood. Paintings are 18x20"

Also, my new oil paintings and website update are still on the way. I said June, but I'm just too busy. I have everything photographed, I just need some time to sit down and upload, color correct, then type out annoying html for a weekend. Have a great weekend, I'll try to get the new stuff up asap!
