Blow Up, a show of works by Tomer Hanuka, Sam Weber and myself, opened today at the Society of Illustrators (NYC). Opening reception will be held on September 10th, next Friday.
Our concept was to create an exhibit of three ‘illustrators’, to show the power of print, and wanted to share what kind of creative and thinking process go into creating the works.
After a lot of ditched concepts and ideas, multiple meetings (over dinners and lunches), and needless to say, many many hours spent in front of our drawing tables, we are quite happy with the result, but then again, we have to let you the viewers decide themselves. It may not be a typical group show you may have been expected to see, so we are excited and nervous at the same time…
It would be great if you could visit, either at the opening party next week, or while the show is open.
We each created series of new images for the show that were not shown previously, and I am sharing some of my final pieces here. Mine were created using the definition of term ‘blow up’.
