The Bare Beginning


I finish another, and begin another...
Hello, new followers :) How art thou?

Spectrum 17




Made my week! I'm in the upper right on the 2nd image, and the upper left on the third. And now, I fly off to finish the painting in the previous post...

Working on...


The runt. There is another painting that is further along than this one, but it's hiding out someplace else. Clutter has invaded my desk...again.

Why, hello...


2010 Sketchbooks.

I've been swamped lately, and trying to be more efficient with my time, so a quick hello! While clearing away my work space, I uncovered a pile of sketchbooks that I finished over the past 6 months, and thought I would share them with you. I'm nearly finished with another one, and scribbling away at three others, while working on all 4 of my upcoming Roq la Rue paintings, which are in various stages of the process. It's all quite wild.

But anyway, a quick shout out to some of the press that covered my CHG show:

Arrested Motion - preview and opening night coverage.
NBC Blog
Juxtapoz - Sneak Peek and opening night coverage
Hi-Fructose
Coates and Scarry
Creep Machine

And to any of you that I missed, it's all hugely appreciated!

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, a big belated thanks to Odette for sharing the Bride of Frankenstein piece that I did last year, on her blog Wicked Halo. She posted a wide variety of artists' takes on the famous Bride. Another rendition that you should check out is one that my friend Tom Bagshaw did recently - it's absolutely gorgeous!

I like this photo-post thing, and I think I will do another soon...

Process Shots

Tomorrow is the last day to catch my "Seeing is Believing" show at Corey Helford Gallery (hours: 12-6pm), so I thought I'd share some process photos that I took of some of the pieces. My next show is set for February 2011 in Seattle, and come to think of it, I won't have another painting in an LA show until July 2011 (thanks to a quirky schedule and my snail's pace). So in a way, Angelenos, this is your last chance to catch my work in person until then! :)


(post-its on the big piece = to-do's for the day)

All quiet on the front, before gallery doors opened...

Tonight!

edit: better photo now!

I wanted to let you know that there will be some free take-home souvenirs available at the gallery tonight, so be sure to grab one (or a few) on your way out. If you can't make it out tonight though, fear not - they'll be available until the 16th. My good friend and amazing artist Tom Bagshaw designed them - isn't he marvelous?!



I'll have hi-res images of the paintings up by Sunday morning, but in the meantime, you can check out these sneak peaks on Hi-Fructose and on Juxtapoz.

And finally, the piece that I contributed to this year's Bristol City Museum exhibition will be available for the first time as a canvas print starting tonight!


"Two Spirits" giclee on canvas print.
18"x 24" (same size as the original)
Edition of 25
Available through jch@coreyhelfordgallery.com
or contact 310.287.2340

See you in person or in spirit tonight!

Here it is!


Issue 61 of Imagine FX Magazine is out now in the UK, although it may take a couple of weeks to make it to US shelves. I couldn't wait to get mine though! So here's a peek of the inside:



If you'd like to order a copy, you can do so here. Barnes and Noble, and other local bookstores also carry it, so look out for it in a couple weeks!
