gorillas in print

Hey guys!

Heading out to LA tomorrow. Just got some moleskine pages to share.
The sketchbook solo show at medicine agency in SF is cancelled but hopefully we'll find another place to do this, we'll see.

Also, I am proud to announce that the Gorilla Art Fare book is coming out in April. It's a collection of art from people who are far more advanced, intelligent, creative and skilled than I am and I'm proud to have a few things in there.
 I hope that you can grab a copy, it's worth it and at least you should have safely bookmarked in your RSS feeds as a source of great and diverse work. I'm sorry if you've heard this from other blogs or facebook, but if you haven't please do check it out.

The cover below is Illustrated by Clo, Devin Platts & Tom Scholes and designed by Victoria Maderna and Federico Piatti.

"We have the most exciting news today! Gorilla Artfare and CFSL Ink have joined forces to bring you a wonderful collection of artwork: Gorilla Artbook Vol 1!
The book is hardcover, sized 24×28 cm (9.4×11 inches approximately) and it holds 250+ pages of stunning images by more than 70 of our artists. It will be available for preorder on April 7th and released on April 14th!
We will share more info on pricing and where you can buy it real soon! Update: Some more info + a small preview of the interiors here! For now, feast your eyes on these previews of the cover (illustrated by Clo, Devin Platts & Tom Scholes, designed by Victoria Maderna & Federico Piatti):"

  3. Ah dude that sucks that the Medicine Man show got cancelled... What happened there?

    I will be having a solo show of my own in SF April 30th at the Modern Eden gallery... Perhaps I can introduce you to the folks there... Would be dope

  4. Thanks my friends!

    Loops dawg, that sounds awesome man, can't wait to see your solo show (lucky for me- that was the original planned date for my show haha)
    It's a minor setback, I'm sure we can find another place, although depending on the dates I may not attend :)

  5. sweet shit man...Enjoy the tortuously long flight!!

  6. Is the lack of space a setback? Who's in charge of finding this stuff? email me if you don't wanna discuss all that here

  7. Awesome! How does the moleskine tolerate paint? That gouache?
