Jab Strong Fierce


So tomorrow is the opening for Nucleus Gallery's Jab Strong Fierce show in L.A. I was invited to submit a piece for it, which I was super excited about.

Here is the piece I did for it, depicting Dhalsim and Fei Long. Watercolor and acrylic, 18 x 24. Just trying to have fun with it.

In other news, the new and improved Illustration Academy site is now up, with tons of awesome images and videos. Check it out! This past summer, I did an art trade with George Pratt with the Hester Prynn piece I did during Academy. I was watching a podcast of George Pratt doing a demo, and saw the piece lovingly placed in his work area. Do you see it? I've sort of been imagining it under a pile of papers somewhere in his storage closet. I must say I was very flattered and humbled to be a part of his collection. Thanks George!

Nice piece!!! HOLY CRAP! thats such a nice mix of watercolor and acrylic, letting the qualities of both show through! awesome.
Yeah, the 20th time I watch this video I saw your piece nestled in the corner, I did a double take, haha
What piece did you get from George?

I don't know what to say other than calm down man... you are out of freaking control (in the best possible way) & I forgive you for missing dr sketchys to work on this. I did notice your piece up in the corner when I saw that podcast & was confused about how it got there, now all my questions are answered, thankyou!

Awesome man, knocked it out of the park with those poses. Glad to finally see the finished version. How's things in general? You finish those Walking Deads yet? I need collect those at some point, before I find myself relocating out of town!

Dude I love your street fighter piece. The way you drew them and the texture in your paint really bring them to life.

Hi Jeremy, I really like your work and hope that this interests you.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
