The Gilded Age

 

Back in 2014 right after my last solo 'VERSO' I was approached by Andrew Hosner, from Thinkspace Gallery, about the possibility of doing a three person show, when he told me who the other artists would be - Aaron Horkey and Esao Andrews - my answer could not be other than a big yes. Aaron came up with the Gilded Age as a theme and we all jumped on it with different and similar views, at the same time, which made everything a little more interesting.

We all did nine pieces of work for the show, plus a screenprint (which I am still learning and experimenting). Here are all my works from the show, the screenprint (some few are still available) will be posted tomorrow. The show took place last September in Culver City, Ca. 

Note: Two of the works can still be purchased, there's a link next to them that redirects to the gallery website if you are interested.

Alien Poster

 

A while ago I was asked by a group of collectors to do a dream commission:  a "Alien" screenprint poster.

As a massive fan of the first movie, I was obviously highly enthusiastic about doing it. The final version is still to be printed and as soon as I have it in my hand I will post a couple detail shots and also I will have some APs for sale (probably appearing in the "Goods" section of my website or through Eidolon Fine Arts).

Anyway, here's a bit of the process: I did around 7 sketches, my initial idea was to play around the concept of animal species and survival mixing the two "beasts" of the film - the cat and the xenomorph. The final version, however, was more straight forward so I pushed to get "weird" in other areas, completely redoing the logo and choosing a sort of unusual landscape format.
