Time Out New York Tearsheet

Just saw the tearsheets from Time Out New York. I was intially a bit disappointed that they had to drop out the background I was so pleased with but in the end I have to say I really like it!

Dream A Little Dream

I'm gonna have a couple of pieces in an upcoming show at the Lana Santorelli Gallery in Manhattan, opening this following Saturday.

Here's the press release from the gallery:


Artwork for the Children and the Young at Heart.

The tattered softness of your favorite stuffed animal. Stretching your feet out to touch the clouds as your swing climbs higher and higher. A boundless expanse of time sprawling before you, imagination running wild with possibility. As we grow older, we yearn for and try to reclaim the simplistic beauty of childhood. We strive for this most priceless and difficult to attain element of youth: a free and open state of mind.

Exhibiting Artists: Walter Garcia, Kimberly Gaul, Stephanie Graegin, Angela Cazel Jahn, Ilana Kohn, Angie Lee, Basha Maryanska, Jessica Roller, Lana Santorelli, Mark G. Taber, Rin TERADA, Edina Tokodi/ Mosstika Group, and Lubomir Tomaszewski

Lana Santorelli Gallery will host an opening reception for Daydream on Saturday, September 19th, 2009 from 6 to 9pm at 110 West 26th Street in New York. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 11 am to 7 pm. Daydream runs through October 17th, 2009.

We hope to see you at the gallery!

Such a blast I had with this one! Had less than 24 hours (still in recovery) to whip this one out for Jeff Quinn at Time Out New York. The subject was music lessons on the cheap in nyc. He wanted a smaller illustration to be surrounded by text but I ended up suggesting a larger image where the text could be inserted in the middle of the illustration (over the colored stage lights). Once the illustration was complete and turned in the sad conclusion was reached that laying the text over the busy color field simply wasn't going to work. A poor retoucher was tasked to drop out the background leaving only the figures. Sigh. I'm still very pleased with the piece though so we'll just have to enjoy it in it's entirety here.
