Sorry for falling off the face of earth for a while- I have been working on some really exciting projects which unfortunately won’t come out until nest year. In the mean time, here is my latest cover for PLANSPONSOR! For those of you who follow me, you can probably tell by now that I sneak in every opportunity to draw fish and water. Recently someone asked me about this preference and I gave it some thoughts. I think I love drawing things that allows much stretch of stylization and design but still recognizable for what it is. Everyone of us can have our own drastically different ways to interpret waves but none of us can be wrong.
This piece was one of the 8 selected into Society of Illustrators 56 Annual exhibit and book, I will do a post about all the pieces that have gotten in one of these days…Mega thanks to AD SooJin!
The Sankofa movie is almost done, the edit is finished, and the makers are at the last stage, but exceeded the budget (due to computer hardware failure and such), meanwhile the final sound mix and color correction are still underway. They have already registered at major festivals with a rough cut, and they need just a little more time to get the final product.
They have decided to do one final crowd funding campaign–with a goal of $7,000–to help with the mix and color correction, in order to release this amazing independent sci-fi film. So this is your turn: watch the new trailerand support Sankofa if you like it!
Underwater scultptures by Jason deCaires Taylor
Jason deCaires Taylor is an internationally acclaimed eco-sculptor who creates underwater living sculptures, offering viewers mysterious, ephemeral encounters and fleeting glimmers of another world where art develops from the effects of nature on the efforts of man. His site-specific, permanent installations are designed to act as artificial reefs, attracting corals, increasing marine biomass and aggregating fish species, while crucially diverting tourists away from fragile natural reefs and thus providing space for natural rejuvenation. Subject to the abstract metamorphosis of the underwater environment, his works symbolize a striking symbiosis between man and nature, balancing messages of hope and loss.
