Just wanted to remind everyone to check out the Parking Lot Art Show tomorrow night! It starts at 5 at the Sunset Junction, there will be 8 amazing artists displaying their works inside of big ‘ol moving trucks, secret surprise performances AND free wine! I also forgot to mention that I wrote an interview with my friend Eric about the show for LAist! Go read it!
The creators of the Adult Swim cartoon Robot Chicken have teamed up with George Lucas to create a ton of hysterical Star wars parody videos in the Robot Chicken style. The best is you can watch the whole thing online. It’s seriously amazing, but probably only because I’m a huge Star Wars nerd… I heart Adult Swim & Robot Chicken & Star Wars 4 Life!
I’ve decided that today is just an illustration kind of day, so maybe I’ll have Illustration Fridays? Probably not, but I’ll throw it out there anyway… The guy above, Rey Ortega, commented to tell me that he liked my all of my illustrators I put up, and what do you know? The dude himself is an awesome artist! The picture above is from his business card, with all of his contact info on the back of it. How rad is that?! And check out those colors… they make me very jealous, for the reason that I would never think of mixing them together. Keep up the good work Rey!
Okay, so posters don’t count as illustrations, they’re more design-y right? Right. Ugly Bogus is Shane Long and Rob Stanton, who make really awesome posters for some really great bands and companies. Most of their posters are for sale too, just shoot ‘em an e-mail and let ‘em know what you want!
Jeff told me to stop posting so many illustrators, but I just can’t help myself! I always wanted to be an illustrator, and I can draw pretty well, but I like other’s people artwork way more than my own. Take for example, Betsy Walton, who lives in Portland, Oregon and likes to draw, paint, sew, and make prints. Her style is kinda’ abstract, but I like her line art, I think it’s pretty cute.
