I'm happy to announce that I have a new limited edition giclee print of Frog Bird Snake, lovingly printed by the fine folk at thepeoplesprintshop.com in Berkeley, California.
The print measures 12" x 12" and comes hand-numbered with an edition size of 40. Custom framing options are also available.
To celebrate the physical release of the JODOROWSKY'S DUNE documentary, French independent company Blaq Out are releasing a special book to accompany the collectors' edition of the DVD.
There will also be an exhibition showcasing the artwork at French Paper Gallery in Paris, running from 29th November to 6th December 2016. For updates, please visit the JODOROWSKY'S DUNE Exhibition Facebook page.
The book brings together a multitude of artist and illustrators (including myself) from Sci-Fi and beyond, each asked to produce a piece of art that proposes their own unique vision of DUNE, or the legend behind the failed project.
"The idea and theme for the illustrations are, like Moebius, Jodorowsky, Giger, Foss and others in their time, to propose a vision of the universe of Dune, ... explore the fantasy that represents the projects with all these people working together, ... and what it evokes in the collective unconscious."

I'll be contributing a piece for Arch Enemy Art's The Comfort of Stars exhibition, opening in Philadelphia October 7th - 29th, 2016.
The exhibition takes a science-fiction approach in addressing our place in the universe, exploring themes of vastness, loneliness, isolation, adventure, connected-ness, and parallel lives.

Each particpating artist was invited to choose one of their favorite mythical creatures/beasts to re-imagine and interpret.
My piece centered around a blurry interpretation of the Kappa. At first I wanted to draw a literal interpretation, but everything I did looked like dodgy 80s fantasy movie fan art. So instead I looked into the possible genesis of the myth. I came across mentions of Giant Japanese Salamanders; the gifting/offering of fish; a diet of frogs; etc.
