Dime Bag 3 Show @ Giant Robot NYC

I was asked by one of the curators, illustrator and friend Jordin Isip to be part of this HUGE show happening in New York.  I decided to play up on a character I've been drawing and developing in my sketchbooks for the last couple of years.  I wanted to push the space limitation a little bit by actually creating a fold-out situation with it.

The Indestructable Diamond was painted on heavy board then cut-out and glued on the art to give the piece a dimensional quality to it.

There is also a BONUS piece of art  in the folded up booklet!  It was something I was toying with when I first was asked by Jordin to submit something that I later abandoned.  It has nothing to do with the Indestructable Diamond but I felt it was still a solid piece of art.  Only the person who buys this will find out what the Secret Bonus Art actually is!

I really enjoyed doing this project.  It really pushed me to figure out how to do a piece of art to fit in a 3" square.

I will be down in New York from my new digs in Boston for the opening!  I hope to see you there!  And for all my buds and friends...keep the Friday night before the opening open.  More info to follow.
