My Work in Books and a Theater Poster

These three pieces have been published recently and they were all created with printmaking techniques (etching and monotype). The work was printed in published books and the last piece was used for a theater production poster.

Getting Through the Pandemic

These are my latest monotypes.  I had an explosion of creating artwork after being cooped up in isolation for almost a year without access to a printmaking studio because of COVID. These are some of the results.  What a traumatic year this last year was.  Thank god it is over.

New Monotypes

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.

Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibition

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.

Museum of American Illustration

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!”

New Work at the Old Print Shop

My jazz musician prints are up right now in an exhibition of contemporary etchings at The Old Printshop Gallery at 30th street and Lexington avenue in Manhattan.

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.

Please go to see the show at the The Old Printshop Gallery if you would like.  Included in the show are some of the real heavyweight etchers of the last 100 years

Young New Film Maker

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!
