www.hxfour.com has launched!
For the past 2 years I’ve been laying low, not curating shows, not participating in art events, etc. The reason why is because I’ve been truly trying to figure out a way that I can remain a fine artist, but still do digital work. Ive been illustrating vector graphics as art pieces for the past 2 years, with plans to create limited edition prints, etc and what ive decided to do is the following:
For 7 vector graphic pieces, I printed ONE gallery scale archival quality giclee on 100% cotton paper stock. After that, the file was backed up and put away never to be printed again. This way I can offer to the public digital fine art, limited to one piece only. Just as if I had painted an original.
The twist is, I will not show any of these pieces in a gallery ( with the exception of “Screaming Stoned” which is currently hanging in Ukula’s gallery in Toronto). They will only be available to the public via paypal through www.hxfour.com/shop.html . This way I feel everyone is equal, and you won’t have to visit an opening to purchase these pieces. Plus this way I can keep the pricing as low as possible, as not giving gallery commission makes it cheaper for the public.
Also, on hxfour.com I am offering the first “Who’s The Fairest” mirror. I was hesitant to put it up for sale, but overcame the emotional attachment. More mirrors will appear on the site as I have a lot being produced, but will be few and far in between. For that project I am focusing on retail boutiques in the US and Canada to sell them.
On their way… Stay tuned to http://www.hxfour.com’s online store, coming soon!

For doing a show of this magnitude, I give all the praise I have to banksy. he is our modern day Picasso in my opinion, However Im incredibly jealouse Banksy… great job.
Right now im illustrating a pretty fun graphic for my homie Neal at gotfooty.com. It’s a skateboard footage website where users can upload their footage and share vids, pretty rad. I wont show you the bulk of it just yet, but will show the steps taken to get the videocamera portion done. All in Illustrator, including the shading…
