Some new art print teases, and a personal note...

Hello friends- It's been too long since the last update! Hope you all have been well-- I've been stuck in my Hobbit hole drawing away for a bunch of new releases.

First up- I have 3 Mondo posters in progress; 2 are in production and one is already approved and waiting for a drop date (ok I lied I know already but can't say!). Also, I'll be making a trip down south soon to meet up with some friends.. hopefully I'll be able to announce those plans in the next few days. I'm also just finishing up a 4th licensed movie print for a new company, for one of my favorite films of the year.

What else? A themed art print for the 'Mythos' series curated by Arik Roper titled "The Symplegades" (mine's on the left on the gallery wall..watch Jason and the Argonauts if you don't know what the Clashing Rocks are!). I should have details about the North America sales of this one soon, I think they're only shipping in Asia at the moment? I'll find out and edit this.

More? The new Nature Guild art print is ready to go, and this one is a bit different...  I used a 40 yr old screenprint from one of my favorite artists as a starting point and then imagined what could have been surrounding that slice of environment, just off the page....not in the real world, but in the artist's mind... maybe it'll turn into a series. I was planning the sale later this week, although real life may thwart my plans (see below)

Anything left? Speaking of series: I'm planning to publish 2 new movie-themed art prints myself in the next few months: one the first in a 3 parter, the other is a dyptych that melds two different-but-same things. I hope that's confusing.

And lastly, but definitely not least:  I rarely assume it's my place to bore you with personal issues, but if you've been trying to reach me recently (or are waiting for something), I ask for a bit of extra patience as I may be intermittently out of contact while real life takes over...

Sadly, my best friend is having a very rough time health-wise and may be leaving us soon; best damn dog in the world, he sat under my feet for the past 14 years, loyal and patient.  I found him in a shelter cage soaking himself in his water dish, the last tiny pup in the litter; he was left all alone, with flea bites all over his body from spending the first few weeks of life out in the wilds of the Southwest. They guessed he'd grow to be about 40lbs, but he quickly grew into an 90 lb. true Alpha, a majestic Shepherd mix that no doubt would commanded his own pack if he was allowed to gather them. Raising him and watching him flourish has absolutely taught me to be a better person, as well as a better father when the time came.

He's had a tough few weeks- we all have-  and saying goodbye is never easy, but we're trying to give him the care he needs while making sure he's comfortable, happy and aware that he's loved in what seems his final days. It's messing me up pretty good. I hope you understand... I'll try to let you guys know what's happening soon.

I'll update again this week--  feels good to be back. And as always, thanks for listening-- JC

AP SALE TOMORROW! Journey, SW sets, and a new Nature Guild print (plus some assort. archive goodies)

Hello friends-
Just wanted to let everyone know I'll be having an ONSALE tomorrow, Thursday 6/19 at 3PM EST.

I'lll be putting up JOURNEY APs, a few Archive APs (including a couple of Star Wars trilogy sets)  and some that I've never put up publicly... and last but not least I'll debut the new NATURE GUILD art print for those who have been waiting so patiently... back to the shoreline for this one..

How do you purchase? Just come back here to the blog tomorrow just refresh the page at 3PM EST;  I'll make a new post at sale time with all the purchase buttons, images etc. so you can shop.  Since I have very small numbers of APs, I'll do my best to  prevent overselling but may not be possible-if that happens I'll let everyone know ASAP.   I have very few of the Journey prints and other APs so don't be late!

Hope to see some of you back here Thursday at 3PM -JC

New work for Mondo: JURASSIC PARK OST Vinyl releases on sale June 11th (today!)

Hey all- 2nd post today!  Want to let you know Mondo just dropped their latest soundtrack offering, and I was honored to do one of the covers!

The JURASSIC PARK OST Vinyl LP releases just went on sale at Mondo- head on over to the website to purchase and learn more details..

Next up... JOURNEY / AP sale news!

"Fiery the Angels Fell" - new print for "Moments Lost": Blade Runner

Hello friends- A few quick posts for today-
First off is a late FYI:  I did a print for the "Moments Lost" Blade Runner show at Bottleneck Gallery.  There's still a few prints available so head over to their webstore to purchase.

"Fiery the Angels Fell" (10"x28") depicts the final scene on the rooftops, the moment Roy Batty chooses to save Deckard, while at the same time earning his 'humanity'. A great scene/film to revisit, one I probably could have drawn this from memory if I had to!


Also lots of other killer artwork in this event (and a wonderful 'alternate' OST vinyl designed by Killian Eng), I urge you to head on over to the website to check out the whole show.

"Sentries" shipping update, random project news..

Hello friends-

FOREST SENTRIES shipping update (5/20) - 
Shipping the last batch of Sentries orders out this week so if you're still waiting it'll be on it's way within the next couple days. Also, JOURNEY APs should be here any day; will let everyone know as soon as they arrive.-JC

Wanted to share a quick update on "The Forest Sentries"--printers are just finishing up, should have 'em back here in a few days. I'll quickly sign/number and tubes should start shipping by the weekend.

Also, many people (well, at least a dozen) have asked me if  'Sentries' marks the end of the series, or if there's plans to do something from the prequels- quick answer is 'no' to both.



(Here's a small tease of something else entirely)

Other current projects include a few Mondo things, the next Guild art print (which will debut as soon as I complete Sentries shipping next week), and a few other licensed movie poster things for some other guys. As always sorry for the vagueness- promise to share more when I get the OK! -JC
