My brother, Michael Veitch, a singer-songwriter of some renown; has just released a new collection of his Vermont themed tunes. He asked me to do the art for the release and here’s how the download card came out. He’s giving a couple songs away as a free download. Just head over to www.Distrophonix.com and use the code 1WWHT3IV to redeem the goodies.
This is an illustration I collaborated on for an upcoming play in New York City titled STAND-UP TRAGEDY. The story concerns a teen-age kid in the Lower East Side during the 1980’s dealing with problems at home and problems at school. The kid has some art talent and an active fantasy life built around his own superhero creation, SAGA but he’s up against some powerful negative forces. The play was written by Bill Cain and will be performed April 13 through May 4 at Nativity Church, 44 Second Avenue in NYC. Tickets and information here.
The illustration is a collaboration between myself and Manny Skerret, a talented young student. I came up with the design and did the outer panels while Manny perfectly captured SAGA as he inhabits the lead character’s teen age imagination. Manny is also doing art and animations that will be incorporated into the performance.
Seeing all the news reports about the so-called “Obama Coin” got me thinking. I had an Obama Coin image! I made it in 2008 as a Photoshop learning exercise. If any art directors out there would like to license it to illustrate an article, get in touch.
If you live in Europe, today you can pick up the German edition of WIRED with 7 pages of comics by me. It’s about the rise and fall of Kim Schmitz aka Kim Dotcom; the founder of the Mega-Upload site who was busted big time in New Zealand a few months ago. This is the frontspiece to the magazine before they added the copy.
