A&D

I recently got asked to be a guest speaker at the High School of Art & Design in NYC, it was a special honor for me since I graduated from the school back in 1995. The actual building that housed the old A&D I went to was demolished earlier this year, so I was given a full tour of the new school and facilities.

One of the coolest things that stuck out to me at the new High School of Art & Design was the tiling on one of the hallways, it’s a pixelated version of jimmy Palmiotti’s countdown 51 cover.  As you can see in the floor lay out above, Superman is clearly depicted on the hallway floor. For more pics of the new A&D click HERE, note: these are early work in progress pictures.
showsI’m usually so busy doing my art hustle thing, that I often over look how the animated projects I’ve worked influence younger artist coming up.  The three shows I’ve worked on that got the most reactions from the A&D animation students where “Batman The Brave and the Bold”, 4kids “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “codename: Kids Next Door”. It’s awesome to see the reactions from the demographic that they’re intended for first hand. I look forward to building and connecting more with the High School of Art & Design for future projects and lectures.

NYCC schedule
September 29, 2012

Fresthetic will be kicking off the NYCC week festivities by hosting my solo show/retrospective, if you’re in the area come through. Our sponsors hooked up some dope gift bags for peeps, so don’t sleep. The exhibition will be a showcase of all my works, covering paintings, drawings, toys and products. DJ Chela will be on the 1’s and 2’s for the evening.

Here is my official NYCC Schedule, I’ll be signing with the MPH peeps on Friday and bringing along some dead stock vinyl, Boba Def’s? or all blacked out NYCC Hi-def’s? who knows…

Throughout the con, I’ll be rocking some live painting with my Art Whino peeps, I have no idea what I am going to paint, but that’s what makes it fun! Always a pleasure to paint with peeps and exchange techniques and what not. The Secret Walls is a toss up for now, they run a very “Rave” type of art battle, lol. Schedule is TBA,  as well as who the hell I’d be battling, hopefully I can fit it into my schedule.
