More True Self @ Jonathan LeVine

October 21, 2009

I’m headed to NYC for the private opening of “True Self” at Jonathan Levine. Above is a small detail of the piece I did…Gary asked each artist to do a piece that represents themselves in some way, although not necessarily a self-portrait. Mine is a little bit like a painted doodle…it’s like what I would draw on a notepad next to a hotel phone if I was on a long call (except in paint instead of ballpoint ink). With that said, I called it “DoodleBrain.”

Other True Self participating artists: Adam Wallacavage, Alex Prager, Amor Muñoz, Boris Hoppek, Christian Clayton, Cleon Peterson, Dalek, Dave Cooper, David Sandlin, Deedee Cheriel, Eric White, Esther Pearl Watson, Fons Schiedon, Frieda Gossett, Gary Taxali, Gary Baseman, Gerard Dubois, Gretchen Ryan, James Jean, Jonathon Rosen, Korin Faught, Lauren Bergman, Leah Hayes, Lola, The London Police, Luke Chueh, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden, Mark Todd, Martha Rich, Mike Shinoda, Miso, Natalia Fabia, Orly Cogan, Ray Caesar, Rob Clayton, Robin VanValkenburgh, Ron English, Ryan Heshka, Ryan Jacob Smith, Shag, Shannon Freshwater, Tim Biskup, Travis Lampe. Sounds like a good show.

Opening Reception:
Saturday, October 24, 2009
7:00pm – 9:00pm

Jonathan Levine Gallery
529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor

Linkin Park Video Game: More

September 25, 2009

As announced earlier this year (http://www.businesswire.com/portal/site/home/permalink/?ndmViewId=news_view&newsId=20090421005647&newsLang=en), we’re putting together a video game for the iPhone and iPod touch. So far, it has been a lot of fun…although we don’t have a release date to announce yet, I thought I’d share a few of my concept drawings with you guys. I know it’s a terrible picture, ha!

image

This is the first time since the announcement that we’ve really talked about or mentioned anything about the game. We ‘re still working on it, but here’s what we want it to be: 1) Unique, 2) Fun.

We’ve been brainstorming ways to make story, combat, puzzles, music-based challenges, and RPG elements all fit within a community in the game. There are also some really funny things going on in the game that I know a lot of LP fans will recognize. Stay tuned for more info…
