Erik Joyner "Glazed"
I was able to see the work of this San Francisco based, award winning artist this past weekend at the Shooting Gallery. Once I saw his work in person, I was hooked. He's an exceptional painter, and by the looks of the massive list of shows he has been in, I'm not the only one that sees this. The show was called "Malfunction" and featured works filled with his tin and rock'em sock'em style robots, and donuts. Big, frosted donuts. The very thick oil paint he uses fit the donuts so well. The piece above was not in the show, but fits the overall theme. The print is signed and limited to 150.
Keith Weesner "Femme"
An artist out of Burbank, Keith Weesner has done animation backgrounds for Superman, Batman Beyond, Powerpuff Girls, and Gary Baseman's Teacher's Pet. His love of cars and pinup illustration show in his personal art. He has a great style, one that easily draws in a huge Glenn Barr fan like myself. Most of the works of his I have seen person are acrylic, and look amazing. He currently has two pieces on show at the Gallery 1988 in San Francisco. This print is signed and numbered, with a certificate of authenticity and you have the ability to have it framed as well. It's limited to 200.
Joe Ledbetter "Triple Trouble"
A Los Angeles artist, Joe Ledbetter has such a fun, colorful style. Stylized, cartoon animals with think black outlines, as well as a host of vinyl collectible toys. His work always puts me in a good mood. He has a vinyl toy coming out this weekend, you can see the news on his Homepage. This specific print is from Gallery 1988. It's hand signed and numbered, from an edition of 100.
Erik Otto "A Long Way Home"
A graduate of San Jose State University, Erik Otto currently lives and works in San Francisco. He has done work for such clients as Timbuk2, DJ Fuse One, Old Navy, GAP Inc. and many others. His work as he describes it "acts as a call not only to maintain one's integrity and spirit, but to make an active, positive change in a decaying world." His work is exciting and colorful, I love how many different materials he is able to incorporate into his pieces. I saw this print in person, and it looks amazing. Nice bright, vibrant colors, and very sturdy 110lb paper. This print is a 4 color screen print, signed and limited to 100.
Scott Saw "Rocket Birds"
I featured a Scott Saw print about two weeks ago, but in the past week he released a new, very limited edition print. The print is from a series of pieces that are in the "Apres Garde" show at the Gallery 1988 SF. "Rocket Birds" is the name of the series, and there is a print based on each color variation. The prints are limited to only 33. I saw the originals at the show this past weekend and they look great, and I know that Scott goes a great job of making sure his prints are very close to the originals.
