I had the pleasure of being invited a few months back by the great Aaron Horkey to participate on a series of screen printed posters celebrating the films of Paul Thomas Anderson. My choice was “Magnolia” (1999). The other posters are all breathtaking and I am truly honored to be a part of it. Check them out here: indiewire
The posters will go on sale later this week through the Mondo website (www.mondotees.com).
The Light Rays are a counterpoint to the Dark Sharks. Where the Dark Sharks ask the viewer to bear witness to the power and visceral essence of the ocean, the Light Rays printed like graceful etchings represent the “Zen” of the ocean, and its peaceful, meditative qualities. But water is forever fickle; so occasionally and unexpectedly the line between the two groups is blurred by the whims of the sea.
O BTW As well as doing the cover art, there’s a 12-page comic by me inside the new Runaway Orchestra CD- available HERE
Thank you Andy for designing it to look so nice!
Happy Mother’s Day, all.
Hannah Starkey, In the company of Mothers
“Motherhood; talk about a passion project…” says Hannah Starkey, London based photographer and mother of two girls, ages 11 and 12. Her work was first featured on The Daily Beast in a survey of 15 female art photographers, on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Throughout her career, Starkey has explored the representation, identity, and interaction of the contemporary woman—an ever-evolving process of reflection since she began working in her twenties.
In the company of Mothers is her newest series of work, currently on view at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York, through May 25. In an interview with Lisa Larson-Walker, photo editor for The Daily Beast, Starkey describes the progression of her work, the visceral and complex process of photographing mothers, and the significance of making art for the empowerment of women; see more works from In the company of Mothers here.

Miya Ando - Obon
Miya traveled to Puerto Rico where she floated 1000 resin and (non-toxic) phosphorescence-coated leaves in a small pond. During the day the phosphorescence collected and absorbed energy from sunlight, giving them a soft, blue glow at night.
