I just finished another large limited edition 12 color silkscreen for Italian clothing company Diesel Industries, which will be on display at their new Hollywood store on Melrose Avenue, along with a showcase of my book Pulphope. The screenprints will be exclusively on display for about a month, starting Thursday Oct. 18th. We'll be framing the various process prints from the edition as well, demonstrating how the various layers of color are placed one on top of the other in order to arrive at a final image. This Pulphope installation is Diesel's big fashion week event for the fall season, and also the first big event they've done at the Hollywood store, outside of the opening party. The final screenprint is 30x35 inches, printed on archival paper. I'm also doing a smaller full color print which will be an exclusive gift to anyone purchasing one of the new line of designer time frames at the Diesel Hollywood store. It's been a lot of work, but worth it.

A small number of the silkscreen prints will also be available online through my art dealer, The Beguiling. The Beguiling also has a brand-new shipment of original art from me, at a wide range of prices.

See the entire list here.

The other day, while putting on an overcoat, I tried to imagine this coat to be made of meat (veal, to be precise). I was very pleased about the old powers of imagination, about the way I could feel the wetcoldsoft disgusting edible collar around my neck. Two weeks later I saw a photograph of a girl in a meat coat in an Amsterdam shop window.

Commercial imagination is communal, not personal.

A person's imagination is not commercial.
