I recently had the privilege of having some art selected to appear in the latest Eye Candy From Strangers book that just came out. It's the latest book from Alberto Ruiz's publishing venture called Brand Studio Press. There are lots of good juicy art books in the Brand Studio Press library, so be sure to check that stuff out.
One Northwest artist, and one former Northwest artist in the book are, Memo Diaz. and Kevin Dart Be sure to check out their sites for even more juicy art goodness. If that's not enough for you, check out the cover artist's blog, called Bagsblog. This guy has some killer work on his site. Just another example of new art guys that I haven't heard of before. Thanks to the book though, hermits like myself can now become aware of more great artists that are out there. Nice work Alberto!
On a side note, I've been trying to pay more attention to the Flickr account. To get my ass motivated on it, I decided to throw up some in progress pics of the piece that ended up in the book. My room mate at the time documented the painting process from start to finish. He even shot some time lapse of it that I need to bug him about finishing. Anyway, enjoy.
