100 Heads for Haiti
posted:
Acrylic on paper cutout For the 100 heads for Haiti exhibit organized by David Plunkert of Spur Design all proceeds from the sale of original art ($100 min.)  will go to Doctors without Borders.  Show opens April 6th in Baltimore.  I'll call this "the giant".  I figured nobody really wants a depressing take on the Haiti so I chose to do a landscape.

Art in context. (hope to get a better shot of this later.)
Illustration for Greg Klee at the Boston Globe for a story called "When your kid is the bully".  About a parent being agast upon realizing that their own kid has issues.

I did this to add to the Dog Show Chris and others were a part of, but I did not get it done in time.  So I add it here.  Piggyback!

Nick Dewar, illustrator, passed away today. Nick Dewar is another young talent lost in series of early deaths. Nick Dewar was born in Scotland in 1973 and died in 2010. During his lifetime, Nick Dewar lived in Glasgow where he attended art school, London, Prague, New York and finally southern California.

According to SPD, Nick Dewar artist rep Kate Larkworthy had the following on her Facebook page:

“Nick Dewar--what a lovely man and dedicated friend. I can't believe he is gone in body but never, ever, ever in spirit. They surely threw away the mold when they made Nick. Those of us who were lucky to know him will have a void in our lives forever.
A small family service will be held in Newport Beach later this week. A memorial service will be held in New York at a later date. Contributions can be made in Nick's name to radio station WFMU New Jersey.”

The Nick Dewarwebsite features his work and information about this talented artist. One of the central themes expressed by Nick Dewar was television as a dominating force in constructing human reality. This is taken directly from the Nick Dewar website:

“My work has appeared in magazines, on billboards, in books and on the wall next to the telephone. Illustration has been my sole occupation since leaving art school over 15 years ago and indeed it is doubtful that I could actually hold down a proper job if asked.

I have been published in countries as far flung as Japan, India, Germany, Spain, Rarotonga and Iceland but mostly work comes from American and British people.”

Most people are familiar with Nick Dewar's work but may not know it. The cover illustration on the novel, "The Devil Wears Prada" was done by Nick Dewar.

We express our sincere condolences to the family, friends and fans of Nick Dewar.
