The Convict & The Violin

So I'm currently swamped in a ton of projects both big and small, so I thought I'd post something from a little while back. Last year I did this painting as a commission for someone who wanted me to create a piece inspired from a poem they loved. The poem was centered around the meeting of a convict and a young violinist in a train station who both share a common love for music.

Sex and Science
10" x 13"
Acrylic / Gouache / Collage

Another piece of mine from the Ancient Book of Sex and Science. There is this great book series known as the "How and Why Wonder Books" that I just love. It's a book series that focuses on a particular aspect of science in each volume. The covers are so great and inspiring that I thought it would be fun to do a tribute / spoof of one of those covers for our book. So I refrenced one of the covers I really enjoyed and tried to stay true to the format, color, and typography styling. Obviously the edition that I did the cover to is a bit racy for the series, but I think it would be a best seller if it were included.

I painted the piece with acrylic, gouache, and paper collage. The rips and printing effects were done in photoshop after the piece was finished.

Below is the cover I refrenced, it's awesome.


The book release and gallery show will be at Gallery Nucleus on May 16th, 2009. All artwork will be for sale at the show. More info as we get closer to the event. The offical press release is located to the right in the side bar, just click on the book logo.
