-House Of Mystery 26



House of Myster issue 26.
The upcoming story arc sounds really great. One thing that people might not think about is how far ahead the covers have to be done(in order to have an image for solicitations in catalogues etc..) So when an issue finally comes out, months have gone by. Often times I won't be sure what new characters will look like since the issue hasn't been drawn yet.

For instance, Fig, the main character whose sitting is wearing what she wore in issue 21.

Oil on board 12"x18".
A bit of burning and dodging in photoshop.

-Time Lapse

Here's a time-laspe of me painting the Blue Sky Noise album cover. The audio kicks in instantly and at full volume so mind the speaker icon before playing.

I'll put a more longer version up on youtube at some point. Special thanks to Matthew Taillon for his youtube speed painting page.

-Group Show

This Coming Saturday is Jonathan Levine Gallery's Five Year Anniversary Group Exhibition
February 27 to March 27, 2010.
Opening Reception: Sat. 27th from 7-9pm.

Literally ton's of artists are showing(If everyone's weight averaged out at 150 lbs, it would be almost 3 tons!)
The list of artists are at the bottom of the post.
Here's my piece below.

"Meigh" 20"x24" oil on wood.

While this was being varnished, I took a shot of the frame on a plastic hook in my studio so i could Photoshop the painting in for the blog.

As I was cropping the background out I thought the tote and shadow looked cool when framed. Out of context with the surroundings.

See.

-Blue Sky Noise

Hello.
First, sorry I've been playing hookie the past few weeks, there's sort of an excuse at the bottom of this post...
But for the main meat, I'd like to say congrats and thanks to Circa Survive for having me do the artwork for their upcoming album Blue Sky Noise, being put out by Atlantic Records in April.

You can pre-order the album with a limited edition lithograph HERE. I'm NOT going to be putting any prints out myself so this is your only chance.


"Blue Sky Noise" oil on wood 36"x36"
and detail below


When I do a sketch I transfer the drawing onto wood. This is the Saralâ„¢ Transfer paper that I used for it, and a few other paintings. I like the way they look.


Now, there were so many consecutive "filler" posts that I became irritated by the quantity vs.(lack of)quality. I'm gonna continue the with Monday's from here on out though they may just be links to other artists, random experiments, or pictures of food etc.. A combination of streamlining my site and working on my neglected Youtube, and Flickr are still in the works.

2010

So I have nothing new this week again. I keep a pocket sized sketchbook for those days when I don't feel like carrying my man-purse around.

Here are some pages from a year ago.






As for any resolutions, I really want to start working harder and doing more funny stuff. Also would like to say thanks to everyone who looks at my site. I appreciate you.

-...Bliss

So this is my last post of the year and my resolution of posting every Monday of 2009 was successful, barring that one post in August where I posted on Tuesday at 3am.

In the next few days I'll pin point what new resolution's I'll make for 2010.
My thoughts have become too intense and frustrated that I am deleting all of my news/science tabs and am looking forward to putting a deaf ear to world/local affairs for a while. Thats one of my resolutions for '10. Be mellow.

I got back from Arizona today and was able to haul back a giant portfolio of my high school and Jr. high artwork. Below are some really funny self-portraits...


"Self-Portrait with Parasites"
14"x18" Tester's model enamel on paper. Age 17. I remember feeling nauseous while painting this because to this day, a Surinam Toad giving birth is the grossest thing I can think of. Scroll down on this LINK..



"Self-Portrait with Christy Turlington"
9"x14" Pencil on paper. Age 15.
I have a ton more paintings I'll scan later.

Also, I am in the Dark Pop 2.0 group show at Last Rites Gallery in Chelsea.
Here's that piece for it, framed. Contact
Andrew[at]LastRitesGallery.com
if interested.

Opening is January 9th 7-11pm.

Participating artists include:
AIKO (Aiko Nakagawa), Lisa Alisa, Esao Andrews, John Cebollero, Joshua Clay, Molly Crabapple, Amy Crehore, Yoko d'Holbachie, Leslie Ditto, Mickey Edtinger, Mark Elliott, Eric Fortune, GAIA, Stella Im Hultberg, Sarah Joncas, Aya Kakeda, Ben Kehoe, Dan-ah Kim, Daniel Hyun Lim (Fawn Fruits), Danni Shinya Luo, David MacDowell, Mike Maxwell, Simone Maynard, Dennis McNett, Tara McPherson, Michael Page, Nathan Lee Pickett, Leslie Reppeteaux, Mijn Schatje, Tin, Dan Witz and Jaeran Won.
