This gallery contains 3 photos.
These are my two latest monotypes, done at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop a week or so ago. I do like both of these as I have been working with my students at SVA on human anatomy, perspective, and proportions lately.
This is my piece up in the second part of the Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibition in their Museum of American Illustration Gallery. This is a monotype that was done as an illustration for Easton Press’ new version of 1984 by George Orwell. The art director was Michael Hendricks.
Here I am in front of one of my pieces that is up right now in the annual exhibition at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators on East 63rd street in Manhattan. The work will be published in their next annual book. It’s an honor to be in this show, as it’s kind of like a yearly “academy awards” for illustrators.
I have two pieces in the show this year, both were created for Easton Press’ new version of “1984” by George Orwell. The book was beautifully produced and designed by Michael Hendricks and Michael Baldyga, who both did a wonderful job on the design and production of this limited edition collectors item.
In the next photo is Danielle Demico, the director of the Juxtapose Gallery, who came to the opening with her son. Thanks so much for coming guys!
The show and opening were wonderful. Thanks everybody!”
Also pictured here is Michael Decirbo, the director of the contemporary print collection at the Old Printshop, who is holding one of his etchings and standing in front of mine.
The third image is a monotype that I did as a demonstration in front of the class that
was held at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop last weekend.
Harry Waldman has his own unique style and vision that is worthy of note. His films, Bay for Blood and Enter the Room, are visceral, intense, human condition tragedies that are powerful and explosive. I was delighted when he asked me to help him work up some rough sketches for the poster designs of both these films. I highly recommend these short, fast paced, gut wrenching films. Take a look at the trailers for Bay for Blood and Enter the Room.
P.S. I like his name also!
I am in a landscape exhibition up at Columbia University right now.
The opening is tonight, Friday, November 9 from 5–9 pm. The show includes about 25 of my prints, large and small, etchings and monotypes. Please come if you can.
I am currently in a landscape show, Amused by Nature, at the PII Gallery in Philadelphia. These are some photos of the exhibition.
I recently illustrated 1984 for Easton Press. What an honor! I have always dreamed of illustrating this novel, and Easton Press is the book publishing company that produces the finest and most beautiful books ever! I really put my heart and soul into this job. I worked with Michael Hendricks on this, and he was wonderful to work with. Thanks Michael!
