I’m releasing three prints on Friday, September 18th at 4:00 PM Eastern time. They are prints of work from my recent group shows this summer, and will be the last prints I release this year.

I’m currently hard at work on my upcoming Jonathan LeVine Gallery solo show that opens June 2016. So all my art making efforts will be directed there until next year. June seems like a far way off, but boy does time fly when you’re putting a show together. I have some grand ideas planned so I’m excited to get into the thick of it.

Although I will doing a small piece for Thinkspace for Scope Miami 2015 in Art Basel in December.  I’ll post more on that when the weather gets chillier. 

Here’s the info on the prints:

When I was studying Illustration at Parsons, one of my teachers introduced me to these wonderful art books called BLAB!. The first BLAB! I ever saw was the issue with Mark Ryden on the cover, which was also the first time I ever saw the work of Mark Ryden. When I looked through these beautifully printed books, I was introduced to a whole new world of art that was somehow unknown to me and I was immediately inspired. It was illustrative, imaginative, well-crafted, fantastical, and weird. It was just up my alley. Then I learned that many of these artists were actually showing their work in galleries which blew my mind. I had no idea this kind of work was being shown in galleries, and it opened me up to the possibility of showing my own work in a gallery one day. In many ways, BLAB! was responsible for this new direction in my artistic pursuits.

Here are a few BLAB! covers from this time.

It was always a dream of mine to contribute to BLAB! one day, and I even wrote a mock proposal to the creator and editor of BLAB!, Monte Beauchamp, in my Parsons Illustration business class. Then a few years after I graduated, Monte contacted me and asked me to contribute some work to BLAB! and the BLAB! Art Show. I was, of course, beyond elated to be involved, and I’ve been contributing art for the BLAB! Shows ever since. 

Now we are reaching the 10th BLAB! Show group exhibition, and as always, it’s an honor to once again be involved. The show opens this Saturday, September 12th at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica. 

Here’s my piece for the show.

I’m going to have my 2nd small edition print release of the summer with, “Invoking the Heart of the Forest.” This edition is also at 50. I was planning on releasing this in June, but life has a way of smacking your plans out of your hands and laughing at you as it walks away. Ah well, we’re still cool.

Relish Moments of Glory - Resin Print

Relish Moments of Glory – Resin Print

I started making these resin prints back in early 2014, but a couple huge shows rolled in and ended up consuming my existence for most of the year. I ended up finishing the Roamer of the Subterranean Forest resin prints, which sold out, but I never got around to finishing up the other ones, Relish Moments of Glory.

After the art making madness of 2014 cooled down, I started getting back to them and finally finished over half of them. I ended up painting the frames with a nice, bluish gray instead of staining them, so they look a little different this time around. I’m going to have 7 to sell through my Etsy store next week, and then there are 5 more to finish after that. And after those 5 are done, I’m pretty sure I’ll never be making these again. I love the way they turned out, and I love having this great blend of print and original painting, but painting the same thing over and over isn’t for me. So get them while you can!

The resin prints are 16″ x 16″ and they’ll be selling for $650. There are 12 more left out of the limited edition of 15. 

In case you need a refresher, here’s my original blog post of the resin prints.

Thanks!


I occasionally get requests for prints that I hadn’t had initial plans to release through my store. I can’t release every single piece as a print though my store, so it’s always a tough decision. But when enough people ask about it, I take notice. That being said, I’ve decided to release some of them through my store as small limited editions of 50 every month for the next few months. The first will be released this Friday May 1st, 2015 at 4:00 Eastern Time. I also have small edition print releases planned for June and July and possibly more going forward. We’ll see how these go. 

Here are the details on the first release:

Through the Tempest

22″ x 18″ Including 1″ White Border

Limited Edition of 50

$75


In addition to adding 3 new prints on Friday, I’ll also be adding a framing option to my Etsy store. The option will be added to the 3 new prints plus most of the current prints available. I’m just starting out with black frames for now, and I’ll be adding a brown/natural frame option to the store in the future. 

The frame option will be an additional $120 for large prints and $110 for medium prints with no added charge for shipping. The frames are a nice, solid wood so no cheap plastic crap. I’m also using a white, acid-free, archival mat board with a black core, and UV resistant glass to ensure your print stays as pretty as possible. The back of the frame is sealed and wired so it’s ready to hang. Picture hanger hardware included. 

Also, please note that this option is only available for domestic orders in the United States. I thought long and hard on ways to offer them to my international buyers, but the logistics of it were proving to be too complicated and expensive to be worth it for anyone involved. In the end, I figured it would cheaper and less risky for anyone outside of the US to get it framed locally. 

 

I picked these black frames out myself. They're really solid and great quality.

It’s cold outside. My semi-luscious mustache froze on the way to the coffee shop the other day. Honestly, that part felt pretty neat. Luckily for you, I have something you don’t need to step out into winter hades for. I’m releasing 3 new prints this Friday at 4:00 pm Eastern Time through my Etsy Store. Just stay inside, order your prints, and I’ll put my snow gear on and deliver them to you. Well, I’ll bring them to the appropriate shipping services, and they will deliver them to your door. They’re the real winter heroes. 

Also, I’ll be offering framing options for my prints for the first time in my Etsy store. I’ll be posting more on that tomorrow.
