These six matchbook portraits were quite enjoyable to work on.
I tried to give them each a more pleasant expression than I had previously seen in their portraiture.
I submit, for your viewing pleasure, two new pulp matchbook drawings I recently completed:
Both of these works are direct commissions -meaning I worked one on one with collectors to create something they desired to see. You want something created with you in mind?? Contact me here Jasondaquino@hotmail.com. We'll make it happen.
A new year brings with it the promise of a new beginning. There is always hope, with the passing of time, that we can have a fresh start. To this end, I am offering my moustache - a tiny piece of my identity.
Embrace this opportunity. Everyone needs to start somewhere-Just as the oyster cultivates the pearl, around a tiny piece of sediment in it's mouth, I give you my moustache, around which, you may someday grow a man.
To the victor, the spoils..
Good friend and fellow artist Michael Mararian curated a pretty killer group show at Paul Booth's Last Rites Gallery in Manhattan, to coincide with Matt Dangler's solo exhibition, "Grace". The opening was December 14th. I was happy that I wasn't the only artist with somewhat offensive art on display, (although my custom bookmark did earn a few scowls).
All in fun kiddies.
There are some great shots of the opening on the flickr feed.
Katy got labeled "and guest" ha-ha
