New Studio and New Work

Posted in Leisure, Studio Work with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 26 August, 2010 by endlessslug

I just started setting up the new studio now that everything else is unpacked and organized.  It will still be a couple days until the new studio is complete, however.  I’m also working on finishing a new book for the Johnny Rook company which will hopefully be completed by the weekend.  I did receive a small commission for some paintings or drawings for a friend’s livingroom, paid in advance, and this has saved my financial ass.  Ok, I didn’t so much get a commission as socially strong-arming my buddy into making his pad a swingin’ chick magnet-verse.   It’s still appreciated greatly and I shall endeavor to produce some fine ass-capturing works in short order.  Spank-spank.

I have a few pastels I need to take some shots of and put up at my Zatista page as well as some B/W illustrations for Johnny Rook to post, although I have to wait for the latter until I get the ‘OK’ to officially post them.  I was allowed to post a couple of the new images in my facebook gallery – check me out there – but only 1-3 images from the new book.  I believe I posted 2.

Anyway, looking forward to beginning some new work in a new place with very positive surroundings.  Although a job would be nice.  It’s hard to pay the rent on nothing but hope.

Recognition!

One of my pastel drawings was the favorite work on zatista.com by guest curator Anthony Cochran!

Endless Passage (Reversed)

Check out what he said about it and read his article HERE.

It’s nice to finally get a little recognition for something I’ve done.  The only problem is that over the winter, I realized that many of the images I posted on my portfolio sites were reversed due to the scans of the slides I used.  I re-packaged the original works to protect them a bit more, and realized that the slides were backwards.  I switched all of them out – except for the ones on Zatista.  Doh!  So, apologies to Mr. Cochran, but if you flip that image, I hope it isn’t any less your favorite!  Also a note to would-be buyers out there, take a look at the image in reverse and see if you still want it – hope you do!

*** UPDATE ***

The very active folks over at Zatista gave a read to my blog today and noted the image flub.  They’ve kindly switched my image on their marketing materials to show the corrected image.  Who feels like an idiot? Slug do.  Anyway, thanks to Zatista for being so tenacious with their aid and interest in my work as well as all the other artists over at their site.
