"COSMOS" and "Time Will Tell" open this Saturday (7pm-10pm) at WWA Gallery in Culver City, CA. Yay!
Here’s the final bunch of sketches for pieces in my show, COSMOS. Starting at the top is “Cosmogony,” then clockwise from the left is “Tides,” “Sticks & Stones,” “Fauna,” and “Flora.” The first group of sketches are here.
Here are a few sketches for some of the pieces in my show “COSMOS,” opening October 12th at WWA Gallery.
From top to bottom: “Sun,” “Earth,” “Moon,” a mini series of eight called “Phases,” “Eclipse,” and “Black Hole.”
October 12th is the opening of my show “COSMOS” at WWA Gallery in Culver City. It will be an exploration of the elements that together make up a personal universe. Here’s a teaser of “Sun.”
Also opening the same night and taking up the other half of the gallery is a show I helped curate called “Time Will Tell,” which features an incredible roster of artists: Laura Bifano, Danielle Buerli, Evan Cummiskey, Jessica Dalva, Jeremy Enecio, Ken Garduno, Tom Haubrick, Jon MacNair, Nimit Malavia, Sinae Park, Pat Perry, Michael Ramstead, Jeremy Sorese, Jesse Tise, Casey Weldon, and Jeni Yang. So excited!
Hope to see you at the show!
Happy 8-15! To celebrate, I’ve made my LOST-inspired piece, “There Goes the Neighborhood,” which features Ben Linus and Oceanic Flight 815, available as a print here!
And if you can’t get enough Ben Linus, my other LOST piece from a few years ago, “No Man Is an Island,” is still available as a print as well. That’s over here.
I have plenty of other non-LOST-related prints in the rest of my INPRNT store too!

Here’s my piece for this year’s “Suggestivism,” opening this Friday at MondoPOP Gallery in Rome.
I was inspired by the male bowerbird, which builds a structure and decorates it with found objects (usually natural, but sometimes man-made if it lives near humans) in order to attract a mate.
Here’s my LOST-inspired piece for Gallery 1988's “Bad Robot” show, which pays tribute to the TV shows and movies created by JJ Abram's production company, Bad Robot. I chose to do another depiction of Ben Linus (my first one, for a LOST-specific show, can be seen here). This time he’s witnessing the crash of Oceanic Flight 815.
The show opens this Friday at Gallery 1988 (WEST), so check it out if you’re in the area!
Ink and Photoshop
One of the prints will be sold framed at the gallery and the rest will be sold online (unframed) for just 28 bucks! Whaaat. (Up there you can see a photo of the framed print.)
They’re 18” x 24” on charcoal grey paper in an edition of 80.
All prints in the show go on sale tonight at 5 PM EST! Check back at the gallery site to purchase: http://telegraphgallery.com/
Hey guys! The Kickstarter for Trevor Henderson’s HP Lovecraft art zine “Puffed Shoggoths” is now live! Please show some support! I mean, what are you…some kind of ancient, unfathomable monster? Seriously though, it’s gonna be filled with so much awesome, creepy art. Check it out:
The above image is my contribution that I posted a while back. It’s called “A de la Poer Eats Forbidden Things” and is based on Lovecraft’s “The Rats in the Walls.”
Here’s a set of illustrations I did for an essay in The New York Times Book Review in today’s New York Times. Sketches and other info on my blog!
New prints have just been added to my inPRNT store, you guys! Holiday gift ideas, maybe??
Inspired by “Moonrise Kingdom,” for Spoke Art's “Bad Dads” show (opening October 26th and 27th). More info here: http://juliancallos.blogspot.com/2012/10/moonrise.html
