A perspective worth sharing.

Added on by SINC.

"A collector’s existence is tied "to a relationship with objects which does not emphasize their functional, utilitarian value—that is, their usefulness—but studies and loves them as the scene, the stage, of their fate.”  Everything about the object—the craftsmanship, the period, the region, the former owner—everything remembered and thought about the object adds up to its magical fate, and the most profound experience is its acquisition, and furthermore, its transmissibility."
- Walter Benjamin. "Unpacking my Library"

Print sales on pause.

Unfortunately I have a ton on my plate and very little time to care for or handle print orders.

The shop will most likely be down until the end of the year. Sorry guys. Stay posted. Thanks for the support.

Cheers

Prints in February!

Added on by SINC.

*Update  2/1/14 - In an effort to accommodate an overwhelming number of people located outside of the US,  I may hold print inventory back one day to iron out issues with accepting orders abroad. Still trying to post the inventory by tonight. I'll update people ASAP. Cheers

February 1st, I will add the inventory to the Print Shop section on this site. These are a few of my "back in the saddle" illustrations from 2013 I am particularly fond of :)

I will not be taking preorders or holding reserves for these editions. First come first serve. Also, I am not set up to calculate or receive payments outside of the United States at this time. Please email me directly if you wish to purchase prints from a location outside of the United States, and we can see about making something work.

"Goes to Eleven" Edition of 100, Signed and Numbered 16x16 Ultra Smooth Fine Art Paper A tribute to a dear friend of mine with whom I lost touch. A one time partner in crime, my best friend, and a true representative of honor. It takes a huge weight to drag the mighty down. When they lose their way and do fall, it makes a huge ripple. This painting is for Kevin and his best friend Eleven. It is for his broken heart and the healing that lay ahead.

"Meanwhile" Edition of 100, Signed and Numbered 16x16 Ultra Smooth Fine Art Paper This Illustration represents a specific point in time, post-college, Circa 1996. Cut to Four art school grads squatting together in a huge commercial loft Located in South Boston. The narrative depicts the first of our juvenile crew to depart and follow the “faster horses.” It took the rest of us hooligans, far too long to understand why we had lost a brother in arms, and wake up to the bad scene we had spent far too much time cultivating. The specific imagery of the boy scout, the rabbit head, and the bone identify the “good guy” in our story.

"Taller Men Know the Wind" Edition of 100, Signed and Numbered 16x16 Ultra Smooth Fine Art Paper This painting is for my Father; a man who has dedicated his life to the education, provision, and protection of others. He is the keeper of our heritage, a true contributor to this world in which we live, and someone that doesn't always receive the respect he so richly deserves from this family he tirelessly shields.

Maker-Bot... Bot

Maker-Bot experiment!

Let me come right out and fully admit that this is absolutely a poor man's rip-off of a Ashley Wood/3A Robot. My desk is covered with 3A vinyl, and simplifying one of them in spirit seemed like a fine, low poly, idea for my first 3d printer experiment.

I was really interested in answering a few questions that were plaguing me as I thought more and more about 3D printer application.  What type of surface does the texture of the material create? Was the material solvent with specific chemicals such as acetone? How would the paint stick to the surface of this strange substance? Not a total disaster but far from perfect.

Check out the printer here. 

The Space/Form, Plexiglass Experiment.

Added on by SINC.

* Attempting to Work with Plexi

Experimenting with acrylic glass sheets and solvent cement, I created a landscape of layers that shift and shadow at different angles. The subject matter is a blend of multiple environments - influenced in part by the roof-deck skyline of our space in Dorchester and the narrative influence of "day job" content.

My intention was to create layers as clean as the glass they were painted on. When when stacked together the chaos created a dirty multifaceted depth I could not fully control. I did not prepare for the challenges that come with fusing layers of glass together like a toxic Oreo. I wish I could say this piece turned out the way it was intended to.

Step 1 - Purchase a Graphic Artist Guild Handbook!

Added on by SINC.

One of the most valuable pieces of advice imparted to me by faculty at Ringling, was to purchase and reference the Graphic Artist Guild Pricing & Ethical Guidelines Handbook.

This book will help you learn to price your work and time according to the industry standards as well as help you to navigate the complex sea of usage rights, quarterly tax submission, kill fees, and client contracts.

A must buy for the fledgling freelance artist.
