As far as my stuff, I’ll have a few new things:
-The Hanging Tower, a 28-page Western set in a ruined fantasy world. I’ve been posting some development stuff from it over the past few weeks. The main character is an old knight who is navigating her way on a search for a lost girl. It’s got horses, rubble, bells, old timey language, vultures and I’m sure there’s some other stuff in there, too. In a lot of ways, it’s a story about place and purpose. I hope you like it.
-Pins! I have these two pins, either in gold or silver and enamel black. They’re about one-inch wide and they sparkle up real nice.
-New prints! I’ll have Gatherers, Polypheme and Odyssea, and Critical Education in 12x18” super nice archival editions.
Older stuff! I’ll have some old classic prints, a few copies of Treasure Chest, and Fantasy Basketball, and some freebie postcards! Fantasy Basketball, I should add, is up for an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Artist. If you come to the show, I hope you like it enough to vote for it.
If you can’t make it to SPX, fear not! This stuff will be available online sometime next week.
A couple more from that project.
Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege of working on a project for the Adobe Creative Cloud. My assignment was to create header art for tutorials surrounding Edge Reflow, Dream Weaver, Speed Grade, and Audition. The big challenge was to make images that did not literally represent the learning content but instead took on a looser interpretation of its subjects. I am pretty excited with how these came out, with how friendly the Adobe team has been, and to have gotten to work alongside some of my favorite artists and dear friends. Thank you AD Kendall Plant, the Adobe Cloud Team, and Erica Larson (my babe)!

By Olafur Eliasson, this breathtaking installation at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art of a river running through the museum is astounding. It is such a realistic, natural landscape the museum could have been dropped on top of the river itself for how pristine it looks. This site-specific installation is a focus on experience, and how the viewer senses their surroundings.
