Sam Green’s portfolio of drawings are full of fluid movement, interesting perspectives, and realistic rendering mixed with just the right amount of abstraction. He’s worked for a wide variety of clients creating images for everything from brochures to animations for a giant Zeotrope
Mike Lay’s drawings are a tripped out mix of native american pixies, mythological beasts, and hipster fashionista vampires. His work is delicate, detailed, psychedelic, and tips its hat at death metal imagery all at once.

The Oscars were a few weeks back but I couldn’t help myself from posting Melissa Di Pasquale’s hilarious photos from her Oscars costume party. The rules stipulated that everyone must come dressed as one of the following: any character from any film that has ever won an Oscar, Or dressed as any character from any filmfrom the past year that has been nominated for an Oscar. The competition was fierce with prizes and bragging rights at stake. I can see this turning into a nationwide contest. You could throw a party in different cities and compare costumes side to side .Would LA beat Chicago, Would NYC lose to Nebraska? I’m not big on costumes but I’d be happy to host the LA party. I only have one question. Did my favorite film, The Lost Boys win an Oscar?
These days you don’t see enough printmaking in galleries. You may see a silkscreen here or there but when was the last time you saw some wood block prints that are 3×4 feet? I’m glad to know that Katrina Andry is not only making interesting work using this old school art making tradition but is also raising the bar by going big.
