For 2012, I plan to do it all over again and twice as much. As my fortune cookie (above) says "Planning is the prelude to successful action."
Below are some last day updates wrapping up my year:
Jarritos Art Contest: 2nd place winner
Remember how a few months ago one of my paintings won 2nd place in the Jarritos Flavor City design contest? (if not, here is the blog post to refresh your memory)
Well the prize came! Consisting of 192 bottle of Jarritos! In theory it is a half a year supply of the liquid deliciousness, but in reality, I honestly don't think it will last that long. Party anyone?
The soda goes great with tequila. :D
"Against all odds"
Here is a commission I am working on, that will be showing on January 21st in Soho, NY (I will keep you updated as we get closer to the date).
The concept is "against all odds" all the visual elements were under the direction of the client. The theme in this piece is different than my regular work, and I am enjoying working on it. (I used a color filter on the photo, in reality the painting has warm brown tones.)
"The Socio Network"
I have some prints in a group art exhibit in California at the:
Alternative Cafe Gallery
1230 Fremont Blvd
Seaside, CA 93955
"Socio Network is the first of two installments showcasing a group of artists united by social media. The online network has brought together a unique and eclectic exhibit from people plugged in from all over the world. The show will be a "smash and grab", allowing patrons to walk out with their purchased piece upon payment, so the show will constantly be changing and evolving with new pieces every few days. Come watch and assist the metamorphosis of the gallery throughout this amazing eight-week exhibit.
Part I Exhibition starts December 9th, 2011 // 7-10pm
Part II Exhibition starts January 13th, 2012, ends February 7th.
I wish you all the best in the new year! Happy 2012.
