ACID PRINT SUITE NO. 1 - EPHEDRINETuesday, February 4, 2014
Something I've been toying with for a while now, is having an exclusively online exhibition.. ie creating artwork in my studio and sharing really only with my newsletter peoples out there in internet land. Well I think 2014 is the year I'm going to institute this online art forum... starting now, February 3rd, 2014.
The art show will take the form of a 6 part print suite; 1 new piece of art, released as a fine art reproduction, every 2 months over the course of 2014. Each reproduction will be limited to 50 pieces each, with the possibility of 10-15 additional hand embellished options. Those loyal patrons who buy all 6 reproductions throughout the year will receive an additional free Acid print with the 6th and final Acid shipment. By the end of 2014, who knows? Maybe I will find a physical gallery address to exhibit the 6 works.. Or maybe I will roll them into a bonafied physical exhibition of Acid Works in 2015. To be determined!
For now, I'm setting off the 2014 Acid Print Suite with February's release, Ephedrine... a focus enhancing, appetite suppressing drug with a similar chemical compound as adrenaline, which we produce naturally. Ephedrine has properties like speed.. something which brings up productivity while also suppressing hunger.
For years now, I have been infatuated with the notion of increased productivity. I've never understood the idea of the ever expanding market... the ever expanding city... the ever expanding waist line. We hear the endless tirade across the political spectrum on the benefits of expanding growth and expanding markets. NEVER is there talk of reigning in consumption or sprawl.. Reigning in growth is bad for the economy after all. Well, my question is, what happens when a company, or a city, or an economy, or a family unit just never stops growing... keeps expanding and ballooning in size and consumption.. moving increasingly faster and more efficiently.. never stopping to consider the consequences or the repercussions.. ever operating at an increasingly frantic and productive pace. Well of course the answer is.. that system explodes!
Ephedrine is an edition of superb quality giclee prints of the original artwork, printed on archival heavyweight watercolor fine art paper. Size is 20x24". Edition of 50.

LOUIS LOGIC ALBUM ARTWORKSaturday, February 1, 2014
I had the pleasure of creating the artwork for Louis Logic's new album, Look on the Blight Side
recently. This dropped a few months back.. I've been slow to post it.
You might remember I did the artwork for Louis Logic and JJ Brown's 2006 album, Misery Loves Comedy. I was psyched to be a part of Louis' first album in 7 years! It's good too.. go listen to it.
