My contribution to Gallery 1988’s Tribute to Bill Murray. Which is set to open November 4th in LA (7020 Melrose Ave to be specific). The piece is going to be screen printed with 3 colors on thick textured paper. The concept is about showing Bill’s characters throughout the last 30 or so years and how both he and his characters have evolved over the years.

In other news, I’ve recently left my full-time gig at Go Media (on good terms of course), to pursue freelancing. So if anyone needs my expertise for any reason, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Oh Jenny…

Pixel and texture are the main aspects of the image. Rather than use purely digital artwork, I have been quietly trying new methods of creating texture. My focus is on the decay of beauty, as in, the fall of the ego as we are stretched apart in all directions by our ever increasing surroundings of illusion. Seeing things for what they really are by means of moving out of focus with these surroundings and to seek internally, let that guiding light shine forth.

I am seeking to make a transition in art. Forming a breakdown of parts and leaving blank space or thought in its place intrigues me. The balance for me would be to show growth / decay within the ‘inbetween’ phase of an image where they would both merge before the finished article becomes neither one or the other. Question also what you are looking at and by what medium or media? Question everything.

By following other artists it gets easier in time to interpret messages that they put forth. This in turn holds a certain resonance, something that on some level one can relate to.

We continue to learn at the drawing of each breath. I remain thankful to my peers. KDU for Life!

Transition / Exploration of large bird species.

Well, this was going to be a type exploration when it started. Possibly a quote or a phrase that would echo the image. I really like the idea of taking portions away from an image and leaving this emptiness as blank space, offering thought in its place. With this in mind, it is an image reflective of a piecing together and of growth and full flight, also a double edge meaning of the dismantling and the disintegration and letting go of parts that may hold the bird back from it’s flight.

Photographic image + The background is a plain coloured rice. Using very few colours is something that is enjoyable to push into art, it keeps the exploration contained to a degree, yet opens the image up to a larger interpretation.

The smaller image within is just that. Contained within the eye of the Eagle, as we truly are.

Good evening everyone! After taking this in consideration for a while, I’ve decided to bring back the opportunity to purchase resources and high resolution images from me! I’ve chosen 3 different packages this time. Two packages consists of high resolution images, for you to print at your local print service and decorate your room or workspace! The other package are three Photoshop files, for you to see and learn how I build my photo-manipulations and let you play with it! Later I will be using one off the Psd files and explain you some techniques. So it’s always useful to get these if you have any questions.

Go to the SHOP.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. I’ve had a pretty wide range of projects. Check out some shots from them (some are in progress):

This is the beginning of a new body of work that depicts a slight sense of motion and disorientation. More to come from that in the future.

My contribution to the Quentin vs. Coen show next week in NYC. If you’re in the area, you should come check out the show. It’s a show based on characters from the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino. I chose to do a piece on Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction. Say ‘what’ again. This is a very limited print run, and will probably sell out at the show. I may have an extra 15 or so of my own that I’ll put up for sale after the show’s over.

UK rock band, To Catch a Thief, approached me about working with them on their new album packaging. They simply provided me with the title and I ran with it and came up with an art direction based on vintage horror films. This is just the cover, the rest of the layout is still in production. More to come later.
