Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays everyone... thanks so much for taking the time to pay attention and support my work this year. Next year is shaping up to be even better (and even busier)!

 I should have lots of print news and fun previews to share in the coming weeks (currently working on a poster due Jan 1st!).

But don't be like me.. try to relax, hug your loved ones and enjoy the rest of the year! See you in '14... - JC

"The Desert Sands" - New art print on sale

Hello everyone, here's the last batch of "The Desert Sands" - just click the ADD TO CART button below to purchase- I don't have many today so if there's an oversell I'll let everyone know ASAP

UPDATE: All gone, thanks so much for the purchases! The next one in this series is already in progress...

 "THE DESERT SANDS" 18"x24", 6-color screen print; ed. 120 - $40

**out of stock**


**PLEASE let me know if you have any problems with the order system, it's pretty rudimentary..


 As with all screen prints, some colors/fades may appear slightly different than the examples pictured. Please allow at least 2-3 weeks for domestic delivery... I'm a one-man show and like to take the time to number/title/sign each print by hand, so I really appreciate your patience

"The Desert Sands" on sale later today; "Pretty Things Float" Mondo screenprint release

What happened last night? A fun surprise Mondo drop! Thanks everyone for braving the late night onsale for the "Pretty Things Float" screen print release. I honestly thought they'd last a bit with the unannounced midnight drop but to my surprise they sold a few minutes after they went on sale.

I'm so grateful to everyone who purchased a print; I've been asked about this one more than any other image in the past year... if I have any APs to offer I'll be sure to let everyone know.


Although the Mondo release is all gone, we can still have some fun with our Friday.

I won't be able to get online much today, but because I've made many of you wait weeks for the next Nature Guild art print (the Star Wars-themed "The Desert Sands) I decided to plan a short 'limited' onsale later today, after I get some sleep...I'll keep the print up as long as I can monitor the sale, and then I'll have a proper onsale on Monday with whatever's left.

It's an 18x24 6-color screenprint on dark brown stock; just got a few pics from the printer and they look great, I'll try to post a few jpgs at sale time.

I'll tweet and send out a list update when the sale is about to happen..see you then-JC

A quick one...

Hey guys- A quick FYI for the Guild members, and those waiting on "The Desert Sands" onsale to happen..

The subscription tubes are just waiting on 'Desert Sands' to come in... the printer ran into additional delays completely unrelated to the actual printing, and this is after the custom stock already took longer than usual to come in. All frustrating to be sure, but I've been assured everything is back on track..
I'm terribly anxious to get these these out, and hope to start shipping end of this week. The new guild print is done (next 2 actually) but have to hold off on those until we clear the backup

On another stupidly vague note- look for an update sooooon about a new thing I just finished up for something else; should be a nice one for the season, I know some of you will like it...

New screenprint for AMC's "The Walking Dead" art show tonite at HCG

Hello friends-  Hope you're all doing well out there... I'm stuck in the studio on a Friday night getting ready to get final work done on the next art print, but I wanted to let you all know about a new poster. Damn this one was fun...

The print was commissioned for AMC's The Walking Dead official art exibition happening at Hero Complex Gallery in LA tonight (10/11). If you're a WD fan in the LA area: I've also noticed AMC often seems to go all out for licensed events, so I'm betting it would be worth you're while to head down there.

This poster is a 21"x36" screenprint depicting Michonne saving the day in the S2 finale, "Beside the Dying Fire." There's a healthy amount of WD-style gore in there, but hopefully I captured a bit of the mystery (and twisted beauty) involved with her sudden heroic introduction.

Unfortunately I'm not going to be getting any of these for myself; due to the agreements with AMC there will be no artists' editions allowed. This means if you want to purchase any of the Walking Dead show prints you'll have to do it either at the gallery or when HCG has the online sale sometime tomorrow (10/12). Just watch their site, twitter etc. to find out when the sale is going live...

I'll talk to you again soon- I'm DEFINITELY going to have "The Desert Sands" onsale sometime next week, and also will be able to debut the new art print as well. Until then... fear the dead...

Friday, October 4, 2013

Quick updates...

Hey everyone- sorry for the lack of updates the past couple of weeks, I'm juggling too much  and feeling the strain a bit, but there is light up ahead...

Many of you have heard I'll have a piece in AMC's Walking Dead show at HCG Gallery in LA- the show opens next week, and is timed to promote the upcoming Season 4 premiere. I promise to fill you in on the details of all of that as soon as the veil of silence is lifted... my hands got a bit bloody on this one.

For Nature Guild members and those waiting for "The Desert Sands" onsale: the nice custom stock we were waiting on is finally in! Things are happening and now can finally think about the onsale. I'll let you all know the exact time/date ASAP... definitely sometime next week. Guild members: I'll be updating you guys very soon with sub shipment details.

On a related note: There's a handful of you still waiting for tubes, and very happy to report the last pending domestic orders have left the building; the remaining overseas stuff will follow by the weekend. Also, after a few false starts it looks like I'll (finally)have some shipping help going forward; this will hopefully free me up to get caught up on actual illustration and sub releases, while also getting orders out the door faster.

Lots of other projects in the works, commercial and otherwise...everything seems to come to a head and get crazy at the same time. It all makes me a bit mad, and the scary thing is I've started to like it.

I'll talk to you soon-JC

"The Desert Sands" - New art print for August

Hello everyone- I'm happy to debut the new art print for August (yeah, August-I'm a bit late!)

"The Desert Sands" 
18x24 screen print- 7 color
Onsale date: TBA

After staying away from film-related subjects for the first 3 prints this year, decided to switch it up and dive headlong into a (well known) fictional world--although it's an imagined scene and the associated film references are subtle, those among you that know your stuff will have no problem placing the location. If you aren't into this particular series and related canon stories, it would be easy to miss the context; if that's the case, hopefully you'll just enjoy the twin suns setting over the desert...

On a related note- noticed my commissioned work for the Fall has taken a serious scif turn, and I'm excited...if I think about it, some of the most memorable nature scenes stuck in my brain aren't Earth-based (or even real), so looking forward to sharing these projects with you soon.

SHIPPING UPDATE: Shipping continues from the last sale, trying to get them all out asap but still have batches to get out early this week- hopefully I'll have everything out in the next few (as always any questions about your individual orders, just shoot me a mail)

Until then, keep a low profile friends... the Empire has spies everywhere...

Damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead...

Hello my friends- hope you are doing well out there-

I've had so many great projects come my way lately that it's almost surreal- hard to complain about this, although one issue that comes with more concurrent jobs is a complete loss of sanity and time perspective-- so if I seem a bit distracted for the next few weeks please forgive me as probably going to be skipping sleep just to get things done.

This month I get to work on original images for pretty much every kind of media- movies, comics, television, video games-- it's all fair game lately and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I promise to share things as soon as I'm allowed... as usual, the toughest part is keeping secrets when all I want really want to do is share and geek out with you all about everything.

On the shipping front- The "How Time Slips Away" prints are in and I'll start packing this weekend to start shipping first thing next week. The new Guild art print is done so I hope to debut it ASAP (as in the next day or so) so stay tuned to the usual channels... soon! -JC

Hey all,  just a quick post today to share some info...

VERY happy to report I can offer a few PROMETHEUS Artist Proofs up for sale this Friday Aug 30th at 2:00 PM EDT. Just come back here to the blog-- I'll make a new post at sale time.

I'll also (finally) put the July art print "How Time Slips Away" up for sale at the same time- will add pricing details etc. before Friday.

Almost forgot- I'll also try to throw a couple of "Jungle Runner" (Pitfall) APs up at the same time, maybe one or two archive pulls as well... I'm running out of room at HQ!

"How Time Slips Away" - New Print for July

Hello my friends- Finally can debut the new Nature Guild art print release for July:

"How Time Slips Away"
10x26.5 - 5 color screenprint

Solitary adventures are nice to have every so often, but without a companion to share them with (human or otherwise), sublime moments like this one just don't seem to mean as much...

This scene is dedicated to a friend who has been constantly either underfoot or at my side for 13 years now. He's an old man by canine standards, but still the best pup there ever was..

I'll plan the onsale for this one as soon as I get the Three Voices stuff shipped out this week.-JC

Some Odds and Sods..

Hello my friends- Yes, I'm bad at updating. We can dwell on it or move on... I prefer the latter. You too? Great, let's get to it...


San Diego Comic Con came and went without a new post! Had a blast meeting a lot of you on the floor both inside and outside the Convention Center, and will have more of pics and news to share about the entire experience a bit later in the week. Let's just say I made a few great decisions, a whole lot of mistakes, and a sincere vow to do the whole thing much better next year.

If you were following me on Twitter you know I finally made it to the floor on Saturday morning, after a 6 hour traffic fiasco on Friday. The Mondo crew, gracious and helpful as always, were handling all the tough stuff for the Prometheus poster drop/signing happening at 2PM, so I had time to wander the area and give out a few sets of mini prints printed up as an exclusive of sorts for folks who had made it out to the Con (and braved the crowds to find me amongst the vast sea of humanity!). Meeting all those people who shared the similar interests and passions was an awesome byproduct of the giveway; my only regret was I didn't have more to give out... definitely going to do something like that again.

That reminds me.. anyone going to Boston Comic Con this weekend? I'll be there at least one day, but not working...

The printing is done and I had hoped to start shipping these last week, but a delay on the vendor end has them still in transit to me. They good news is they look great and should be here any day now; as soon as they arrive, I'll sign/number/ship out ASAP.

Glad you asked. Let's do the reveal later today (7/29)- just let me get some sleep first!

"The Three Voices" Onsale details, SDCC news and more

Hello friends- been a few weeks since I've shared some studio news so here we go...

I'll be putting "The Three Voices" art print up for sale on Wednesday July 10 at 2PM Eastern. It's an 18"x24", 9-color screen print, non-sub edition of 75.
Happy how this one turned out, started off a simple study and morphed into something a bit more layered. Also has a nice transparent rain layer to complete the effect. Many have asked about what is written on the wet, weathered note in the foreground-- maybe I'll tell, maybe not. Whatever it says, after reading it our lone figure needed some time to reflect...

Happy to report that I'll be at San Diego Comic Con on Friday and Saturday this year- can't wait! Not sure of my schedule yet but will update the details as soon as I find out. Hope to see some of  you there!

That's all for now, hope to see some of you back here on Wednesday for the 'Three Voices' onsale! -JC

"The Jungle Runner" - New print for IAM8BIT show tonight!

Hello friends, I'm pleased to debut a new art print for the iam8but Entertainment System art show.Here's the tagline: "Over 80 Artists from Around the Earth Fulfilling their Retro Gaming Fantasies!!!" Well, I sure did.
Inspired by the original PITFALL game for the Atari 2600, "The Jungle Runner" is 27x10 giclee, gallery edition of 36. About the print: From the beginning, Pitfall was there.. It was the first game that consumed me on the 2600, and the first that gave rewards for achievements (Explorer's Patch!). Yes, the graphics were simple, the action extremely limited, but this did not matter; it was simply an excuse to invent imaginary virtual surroundings. The 8-bit graphics seem ancient now, but rudimentary display never seemed to limit my enjoyment of the game. In place of blocky pixels, I saw green dense jungle, and fierce organic-looking beasts. If you could magically be in my head while I played the role of Pitfall Harry, this image is a pretty close approximation of what you'd see!
Tried to include a few fun game items- gold bar, white scorpions, rattler and logs, and of course the crocs... there's also a nod to the game's designer/programmer, and an abandoned 2600 console left in the trees...Originally I had a screenprint planned (of another image entirely) but we ran out of time. In the end that was a good thing- imo this particular piece was best served by abandoning strict separated colors and just trying to create vibrant surroundings. Opening night: Friday, June 7
7 to 11pm
Tunes by DJ R-Rated
2147 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90026
I can't make it due to being buried under by deadlines, but if you're in the area you should head addition to the incredible art on display, there will be interactive exhibits as well.

Roll, tube, label, tape... repeat...

Hey all- my apologies if you're still waiting on a tube- took me longer than planned to get all that hand-finishing etc. completed! whew.

FYI the last batches of pending orders shipped out this week (a few overseas stragglers going out Monday).
UPDATE 6/4: Doh! Discovered about a half dozen tubes that didn't get shipped last week- getting them out now so if you're still one of those waiting- tube coming!-JC

In between iam8bit show stuff and furious SDCC prep, I've been even crazier than normal round here!

Also, many of you have asked about the "Three Voices" onsale-  announcement this coming week (wanted to focus on getting orders out before worrying about any new stuff!)

On a more personal note- finally found my Explorers' patch!

"Beyond the Pass" update

Happy to report Beyond the Pass printing is complete! Thanks everyone for waiting patiently for these to come in-- they'll start shipping end of this week.

Back to the shipping mines!-JC
