Fri, Sept. 4th 8-11PM Melt Gallery at Meltdown Comics 7522 Sunset Blvd in Hollywood
“The Return Of The FUN Gallery” – a group show that is billed as the return of the FUN gallery, but not at a permanent spot? None the less, Pattis Astor from the famed FUN Gallery in NYC did make a big impact in the ‘80’s and it will be interesting to see what this is all about and if it lives up to the hype (and if they do indeed open a proper spot in LA anytime soon) – lots of hoopla out there, yet nowhere have I seen a list of the artists taking part other than mention of some LA artists will be involved and some NYC legends as well as some works from Patti’s personal Basquiat collection – there will the Kogi truck, DJ Angelus Bailey and beer from Asahi (though I don’t think free) – let’s hope Meltdown hire some security for those Basquiat pieces! www.meltcomics.com

I’m excited to share with you all a process feature from Nathan DeYoung for his new work “Act 2 – A Change, A Gift” that will be featured in ‘Windows & Mirrors’ this September at Thinkspace. Look for a short interview with DeYoung to be posted here in the coming week. In the meantime please dig into his extremely time intensive technique of starting with a detailed under painting and then building layer upon layer of dry brush work over top until perfection is reached.

Camilla d’Errico was recently interviewed at great length by the fine folks over at the Toysrevil blog. Check it out here – just a great and super informative read. Camilla has so many things cooking right now, it’s a true inspiration. A book from Sparrow, a postcard set from Dark Horse, a special install in Vancouver around the upcoming Olympics, her graphic novel, plush figures, a video game with Nintendo, talks of taking her helmet girls to the big screen and so much more. Whew!
Look for our interview with Camilla to be posted here soon as well. Also be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a ‘Back Talk’ feature over at Juxtapoz.com as we head into the opening of ‘Vain Remains’ next Fri, Sept. 11th.
Check out a ‘sneak peek’ of Camilla’s progress for the show here.
