“In Dreams” A David Lynch Artshow

March 6, 2014

Spoke Art is well known for it’s amazing themed shows. This March they will be hosting an exhibition themed around the work of David Lynch. I am excited to have been asked to be a part of this show and humbled to be included among such an amazing cast of artists. More info about the show itself follows:

Spoke Art is proud to announce our first ever David Lynch- inspired art exhibition, In Dreams. The show features a dynamic range of artwork influenced by the prolific and innovative films of director David Lynch. Comprised of over 50 artists from around the globe, each of the exhibited works evoke the emotional complexities and stylistic ventures of Lynch’s work through a variety of mediums, such as painting, sculptures and limited edition fine art prints.

Often defying the conventions of filmmaking, the films of David Lynch feature all-too-familiar worlds that, beneath their vibrant exteriors, guard unthinkable secrets. From the desolate and disturbing darkness of Eraserhead (1977) to the unspoken evils of a small town in the cult classic TV series Twin Peaks (1990), In Dreams presents a closer look into the unsettling, yet hypnotizing realm of Lynch’s cinematic repertoire

Participating artists include Akira Beard, Alex Kirzhener, Allison Reimold, Audrey, Pongracz, Christine Hostetler, Cuyler Smith, Dave MacDowell, Epyon 5, Jason D’Aquino, Joel Daniel Phillips, Joemur, Johannah O’Donnell, John Wentz, Jonathan Wayshack, Kate Copeland, Kate Zambrano, Kelly Mckernan, Ken Davis, Kukula, Mandy Tsung, Matt Macabre, Meggs, Meghan Stratman, Michael Ramstead, Peter Adamyan, Rich Pellegrino, Rodrigo Cifuentes, Sandi Calistro, Sarah Joncas, Scarecrowoven, Veronica Fish, Zach Tutor, Evan B Harris, Fugscreens Studios, Matt Ritchie, Cuddly Rigor Mortis , Rebecca Rose, Tessa Morrison, Geoff Trapp, Guillaume Morellec, Adam Maida, Bartosz Kosowski, Blunt Graffix, Brian Methe, Chuck Sperry, Clint Wilson, David Moscati, Fernando Reza, Jermaine Rogers, Joshua Budich, Lauren Gregg, Matthew Skiff, Rhys Cooper, Sam Gilbey, Shaun Lynch, Tim Jordan, Mat Weller, Matt Chase, Ruel Pascual

Toy Stories Exhibit at Galerie F, Chicago

February 27, 2014

Clintprints is excited to be a part of the gallery exhibit titled “Toy Stories”. I was asked to both create a limited edition screenprint based around my favorite childhood toy AND work out sketches that would be turned into a toy based on my screenprinted work. The amazing 3D artist JC Rivera collaborated with Galerie F and some participating artists to flesh out the toys based on the work of the artists involved in the print exhibit. I am thrilled to share that JC has been hard at work recreating my “Toulouse” character. Below is a peek at the work that Clintprints will have in the exhibit:

Snakes on a Plane: The Films of The Asylum limited edition poster show

April 5, 2013

I was asked to be a part of an exhibition in Denver, Colorado this month and design a film poster for my pick of an Asylum film. After much thought it was decided to work up something for the film called Dragon Crusaders. Luckily this was on my Netflix queue, so I gave it a whirl. The camp is amazingly hilarious. I was sold. Without further ado I’d like to introduce my poster:
