This is a piece I created for the cover of the upcoming issue of Rooms Art Uncovered Magazine. Rooms is a London based quarterly art magazine that offer their publication in both print and as a downloadable .pdf. Each issue is full of an eclectic mix of art and is worth checking out.

The theme of this piece was inspired by the concept of the magazine: "rooms is dedicated to all those spaces which are filled with ideas, emotions and creativity, and our mission is to uncover all these artist's dens and bring to light as much art as possible".

I pushed this statement through the "EK Filter" and came up this piece that features a cosmonaut, the motif for the artist, creative force in this work, emerging from a capsule or room. He is surrounded by other capsules that are also filled with individuals, ideas, and emotions but at the moment he is the only one brave enough (or foolish enough), to expose himself to the outside world. In the inset panel on the left the close up of his face gives us the impression that he isn't quite sure of himself, but because he is driven by passion, he carries on.

In addition to the cover I'll have some work featured on the inside of the issue along with an interview. I'll post again when I get the details.

As mentioned in a previous post, here are the graphics for Endeavor's High 5 board for the 2011/2012 season. These graphics differ from the original "I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have To Be Destroyed By Me" pieces in that they have been lengthened to fit the boards, minor text changes (the title pluralized as Max Jenke thought it would better represent the Endeavor crew), and the addition of patch graphics and info. text.

The base graphics are patches that incorporate the central figures of the topsheet image as well as some of the other symbolism of the patch that inspired that particular board.

The top image is a promotional shot of the 155 "Sneeky Pete" board, the second is from the 2011/2012 Endeavor catalogue and the third is my final design sheet.
