My contribution to this year’s Secret 7” event! The track I chose this year was Jake Bugg’s Strange Creatures. To me this song feels like a wet cloudy early morning in the middle of nowhere. I quite like it.
The version I sent to S7 is a bit different than the final one, since I had to rush a bit to make their deadline and revised it a tiny bit afterwards. This is the wonderful stranger who bought my cover (before I even had a chance to see it on the shelf!) - thank you, wonderful stranger!
There are still plenty of one-of-a-kind vinyls available to be bought online - it’s all for a great cause, so if that interests you at all, you should check it out.
Esquerda, my giant fox for Light Grey Art Lab’s Animystics show.
Esquerda means left. She walks to my left at night, watching out for what I can’t see. You can’t really see her, but she sounds just as horrible as regular foxes.
It is done! This piece is available for purchase on Light Grey’s shop, right here - there’s prints as usual, but we’re also selling the original pencil lines (framed). A chunk of the proceeds will go towards the Animal Humane Society, Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, and Feline Rescue Inc. It’s all for a great cause!
And if you buy the framed original there might be a tiny extra something in it for you. Ahem.
Illustration - Tran Nguyen
The new work by Tran Nguyen set forth in Thinkspace Gallery in California. This Vietnamese-born artist received a degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design, which I dedicated an entry to its fabulous series ” A Place procured From Our Yesteryears “. Nguyen has a deep interest in therapeutic imagery. He is fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a vehicle of psychotherapeutic support, dreamy surreal exploration of the mind.
Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.
