This Is An Update

Hello all! Summer is over and hectic times are here. This is an update of the sweet things to come:

First, the date of the ROCK CANDY book signing at the American Book Center has been set on Saturday, October 31, 2009 at 3 pm. Part of the shop walls will be reserved for an exhibition of my fine art giclée prints. The (unframed) prints will also be for sale on the day of the signing. I hope to see you there on Saturday! Also, on October 22 I'll transform one of the shop windows of ABC into an inspirational Rock Candy wonderland.

Second, the print I made for Pressure Printing is nearly finished and can be ordered any day now! The result is truly amazing. My hart skipped a beat when I saw the preview. The tones of the black & white intaglio fine art print are soft and velvet-like and the image is framed with a delicate, detailed embossing. Brad Keech of Pressure Printing kept a photo journal of the process of this project and will post it on his blog once the print can be ordered. (Here's a link to the journal of the making of the Travis Louie print. Nice!) I'll keep you updated about release dates and such.

Last but not least I'm working on new paintings for the upcoming show at my gallery Roq la Rue, Seattle. Previews will follow later this year.
