Hello again art lovers!
I hope you’ve all had a great week.
I did. I took a break from restful days and spent a couple of them hammering out an eclectic mixture of overdue tasks. The new-found access to different aspects of my personality (A sort of controlled schizophrenia) seems to have major benefits. Selecting the proper program with the proper function for the proper situation has reduced stress, increased productivity/fun, and helped communication exchanges become more transparent and effective…at least for the time being.
Anyway, I finished up the art work and scans for “The Tale Of Moby Dickhead: A Heart Warming Story Of Life Finding A Way Despite Evolution”. Originally, I intended for my 5 year-old son to do the art work but he refused to cooperate. Go figure. I attempted to have the drawings viewable in 3D, but it didn’t work out quite the way I hoped. Despite the art not going exactly to plan, I do enjoy reading the story quite a bit…especially when orating as the acclaimed English actor/narrator John Hurt. Oh, that’s right! I forgot to mention that as long as the readers imagination is healthy, the story is interactive!
“The Tale Of Moby Dickhead” will be available for your reading pleasure next wednesday, June 24, 2015.
Also this week, A long time collector of my work named Lisa has commissioned me to paint over the faces of a commission she commissioned from me years ago. She’s become enamored with painting over parts of paintings so I’ll oblige her and paint. More news on this later, but for now, I’ll mention that I spent considerable minutes tweaking the information on the information page of my website. Information is now as accurate as possible in current space – time. If you love to eat information and desire more click here.
In other news, I packed up the pieces of a major sale! That’s right, a 30 x 40″ canvas and a limited edition Deluxe Set of Apoko – Lips 2014 prints will shortly be in route to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.
If that wasn’t good enough, the mass of art was purchased and will be exhibited by Clay, a long-time friend and collector of my work who has returned to the island to reopen the Seven Minus Seven Gallery!
I’ll post more news about exhibit dates as soon as I have them.
I’m thrilled. In my experience, it’s pretty rare nowadays for the gallery to purchase an artist’s work prior to exhibiting it. Clay dances to the beat of a different drum in a lot of ways though. That being said, the limited edition Apoko – Lips Deluxe Set is a collection of 13 high quality prints and was meant to come in a customized container of some kind. Because of the fast approaching exhibit, the collector needed the art before I could get the specs for the container worked out. I originally envisioned a decommissioned bazooka missile painted pink to contain the set of prints. I’m not sure if this is doable though. I’ll find out and let you know.
If you would like to view high-quality images of my Apoko – Lips collection, inquire about options or pricing visit my website ckirkart.com and shoot me an email. I’ll be happy to help.
Until next time,
