Recent updates

SF Book Release, Books available on Etsy!

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this project happen! It has been a great experience, and a huge success.  I am forever grateful for all the support from my extended community that helped to make this happen.  By now, all of the books and rewards have been mailed out, except for a few people whom I am still waiting to hear back from on where to mail the rewards. (and a few of the more custom art rewards, which I am in production of now) There will be a book release, art show and book signing this Saturday, June 29th, 6-10 pm, in SF at Luna Rienne Gallery. I have also put the first batch of books up on my Etsy page.  More than half of the limited edition of 200 books are already sold! http://www.etsy.com/listing/154195132/zombie-nation-limited-edition-art-book?ref=shop_home_active

Thank you all so much!

Book Release Events in the Bay Area

Recent news is that the book was in the binding stage last week, so they should be arriving from the printer soon! I am excited to say the least!  To celebrate, I will be having two Book Release  and art events in the bay area in June and July. Both of these shows will showcase different art works published in the book.

June will be at Zughaus Gallery in Berkeley on June 1st, 7-10pm.  This show will consist of most of the large paintings featured in the book, some of the smaller works, and a site specific installation.  This show will be open for the opening, and then by appointment only between June 1nd and June 22nd. Copies of the book will be available at the opening. To make an appointment, email the gallery @ zughausgallery@gmail.com.

July will be at Luna Rienne gallery, 3318 22nd Street @ Valencia in SF. Opening June 29th 6-9pm, the show is up through July 29th. This show will showcase more of the pop culture works from the book.  Copies of the book will be available at the opening, and at the gallery during gallery hours. (Thursday - Monday: 12-6pm Tuesday and Wednesday: By Appointment)

If you Donated via Kickstarter and would prefer to pick up your rewards in person, I can bring rewards packages to the gallery.  Just e-mail your name as it appears on your kickstarter donation, and the opening you would like to pick up your package at (BERKELEY or SAN FRANCISCO) to Ezrali@Ezrali.com with BOOK RELEASE REWARDS in the subject line.

Press Check!

Some of you have contacted me asking how its going, so here is an update! I am headed over to http://www.thestudleypress.com/ next week to do a press check for color. I am excited! That means the books are not far behind! I should have the books in hand by the end of April, at which point I will begin to compile the rewards packages and mail out books and art. Most of you should see your packages arrive sometime in May. Thank you all so much for your support, I am eternally grateful for this opportunity to share my work with you all!

One Color Print Rewards...and Press dates!

I mailed out the Single color Zombie print rewards the other day - If you pledged at this level then look out for it in the mail, if you haven't gotten it already!  The design of the book is done, and moved onto the next stage of production.  I am happy to say that due to the overwhelming support of this project I was able to increase the page count of the book up to 80 pages and print  an edition of 200, signed and numbered.

The book is now in the quality hands of the good folks over at Eismont Design (http://www.eismont.com/).  A press date has been set for Mid April at Studley Fine Art Press in Massachussetts (http://www.thestudleypress.com/).  The rest of the rewards will be shipping in May or June once I have the books in hand. Keep an eye out for book release events in the Bay Area in June at Zughaus Gallery (http://www.zughausgallery.blogspot.com/) and Luna Rienne Gallery (formerly know as Fabric 8) ( http://www.fabric8.com/)
