The Latest

Apropos of nothing, but I was chatting with a friend and fellow illustrator this morning about initial sketches and it reminded me that I had this image sitting on my hard-drive.
This is the rough process for my North By Northwest illustration for Gallery1988 earlier in the year (a handful of copies still available here - and with a seasonal discount!). You’re looking at my inital scribble (probably about 1” high), rough photoshop sketch to get balance of color and final art. There were more stages in between, but these I think best sell the process.
I’m a big fan of looking at other artists sketchbooks (Chris Ware and Paul Hornschemeier have both had lovely collections published). It’s a great insight into the creative process and can show an idea from it’s inception on the back of a diary page to a finished illustration. I shall be making the effort to post more sketchbook work in the new year - apologies in advance for clogging up your timeline…

Like art? Like movies? Then you should already know all about Gallery 1988 in its two Los Angeles incarnations because they hold the best pop culture themed shows, and if you don’t, seriously, where have you been? Aquaint yourself.

Which is a round about way of letting you know that they have a new show opening in a few weeks and that I have some work in it. And here it is. This time the theme of said artwork is the mighty Alfred Hitchcock (and his films) and I have made a piece of art paying tribute to North by Northwest, and the calm before the storm of the - still tense - finale atop Mount Rushmore.

The show opens on April 13th at Gallery 1988 Venice, and these prints (handsomely printed by the good folk at Parliament of Feathers right here in Brighton) will be on sale at the gallery and then online shortly after. Expect crowing about it when that happens…
