Jaeger Painted Posters

I had the pleasure of creating some paintings for the clothing brand Jaeger in the United Kingdom. For the launch of their latest collection, they wanted to reconnect with their rich past, with painted posters evoking those which fauvist artist Raoul Dufy had done for them in the 1930s. Both images were created 100% by hand, which was a fun challenge.

Here you can see the pieces in their application, for the launch of the latest collection, in London.

Thanks so much to all the great folks at Jaeger, and to AD Claire England for this great project, and to Corianton Hale and Mikel Folcarelli for recommending me.

Communication Arts 56

I'm proud to announce that my risographed covers for Tales To Behold 5 and 6 got into the Communication Arts 56th Annual Illustration!

Tales To Behold is a self-published comic zine featuring gonzo super-hero adventures with humor, old school vibe, lots of punching and unnecessary nudity. You can order the handmade, numbered books from BirdCageBottom Books or read them on my BEHOLDER Blog or tumblr.

These newest covers are two color risograph printed, with help from the awesome Kris Mukai.

This is a project that I do for fun and nothing else, so it makes me really happy to see it being recognized. Thanks so much to the judges!

Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream

I created this large sequential illustration for “Little Nemo– Dream Another Dream”, an anthology of tributes to Winsor McCay’s seminal strip by 118 contemporary artists.

I'm very proud to be part of this project, as this large book includes some of the finest artists working today, such as Paul Pope, Mike Allred, Yuko Shimizu, Andrea Tsurumi, Matty Hunh, Gregory Benton and so many more esteemed colleagues and friends.

It was  conceived and published by Locust Moon Press and is a beauty– the large proportions really allow to admire all the details of the fabulous pieces people created.

There will be a show of original artwork from the book at the Society of Illustrators from February 10th - March 28th, 2015.
The Opening Reception is on Wednesday, February 18th.
Hope to see you there!

Edit: The comic also just got accepted into the Society of Illustrators 2nd Comics and Cartoons Annual, whoo-hoo!

Within the context of the book, we decided to use an (almost) b/w version.
At the Society, you'll be able to see the actual original, warts and all.
