Prints and more prints

Hope you guys had a nice Thanksgiving!

Now that Christmas is heading our way, I wanted to announce the release of 2 new limited edition prints in my Etsy shop, and another very limited edition that my friends at G1988 launched a few days ago.

The two new Etsy shop prints are these:

Rainforest
Little Cosmonaut

And this is the new print at G1988. It's not faded like their picture, btw.

Fortress of Solitude (Office Space)
To sweeten the deal for Cyber Monday (today), I'm offering free domestic shipping in my shop.

Cheers!

It's A Small World - Rainforest

I'm truly honored to be part of the upcoming It's A Small World tribute show which opens this Saturday at Nucleus. The artist line-up is stellar to say the least and the amazing Joey Chou is celebrating the launch of his beautiful new book, which everyone should own.

This show is particularly exciting for me because of my love for Mary Blair's work, which I've been lucky enough to see in person recently at the Walt Disney Family Museum in SF, and a big show devoted to her prints at the Disneyland gallery in Anaheim. Her ability with color, design and visual rhythm, combined with a wonderful naive quality has endeared her work to generations.

"Rainforest" - 8.5" x 14" - gouache on illustration board
I chose to pay homage to one of the great vignettes in the ride that caught my attention during my latest visit.

Also to note. I did a couple experiments before starting this piece and opted to do it in gouache. Appropriate, considering Blair's work. Unlike my previous experience with gouache, I thoroughly enjoyed working with it and plan to do more in the future.
