Plenilune
This summer, my wife, Elizabeth Virginia Levesque, is starting a year of travel in search of educational opportunities and art communities starting in Asheville NC where she’ll be studying drawing under a master painter. This is, of course, not a cheap endeavor and in support i’m releasing an affordable art print. Local buyers interested in picking the print up directly will have the shipping fee refunded and can contact me directly for arrangements. All funds will go to Elizabeth to help support her in her year long art adventure.

Plenilune featuring Elizabeth Levesque and the fabulous Ninj.

Wired Magazine – June 2011

This is my second time working for Wired, though the first time was years ago. They were great and gave me plenty of creative freedom to visualize the article. If you get a chance to pick it up, the article is worth your time. It’s a story about extreme altitude fall survivors.

You can find the first illustration referencing this material posted on my illustration page.

I’ve also posted a wallpaper for your consumption.

Getting hitched
I’m getting married this weekend to my hottie painter fiance’, Miss Elizabeth Henry. It’s been a casually long engagement lasting about 7 years but we feel like we can finally pull it off the way we want to.
Once the wedding has passed my illustrated posts should resume with more vigor and rapidity.

The busy schedule hasn’t kept me completely empty handed though.

Infectious Skate Decks

A childhood dream came true a few weeks ago when Infectious launched a pair of skate decks bearing my designs. Of course a 16 year old version of me once imagined me designing skateboard graphics all day. LINK

Shifting focus
Roughly five years ago I took up photography as a means of acquiring a library of reference material. Taking on a new art form can be thrilling. There was a lot to learn and I was lucky enough to befriend some hugely talented photographers that could guide me along the way, namely Kathryn Parker and Christopher Bautista. I can honestly say my venture into photography was rewarding in ways i never expected both with the online exposure it’s earned me and with the friendships i’ve formed along the way. Many of the models, makeup artists and wardrobe designers have turned from collaborators into friends.

While I’ve enjoyed photography it has begun to compete heavily with my true passion, illustration. The process of gathering wardrobe, flying in models and editing photos is very time consuming and i often find myself going weeks without putting pencil to paper. This is not at all what i intended. My attempts to cut back on photography are too often thwarted by amazing opportunities that would pull me back in.

In an effort to refocus my efforts I’ve decided to withdraw from photography. I have several shoots still planned over the next month or two with which i intend on following through with. After those any photography i do will be strictly for reference material and wont be posted.

Youtube
For those interested, i opened a youtube account. I’ll be posting behind the scenes footage of photo shoots there along with other randomness. LINK

Kokeshi
KOKESHI: From Folk Art to Art Toy opens to the public on July 11, at the Japanese American National Museum in LA, less than a month away!

Also, thanks to everyone that came out at HeroesCon. I had an amazing time, sold lots of books/prints and made a lot of new friends. Can’t wait for the next con!

COMIC BOOK TATTOO
I was recently commissioned to do the cover art for a comic book anthology put together by Rantz Hoseley and Tori Amos. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a HUGE book and definitely worth the 30 or so dollars most places are asking.

Comic Book Tattoo is in stores now! Available online at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble, but i’d suggest supporting your local comic book store first!
