Andy Kehoe Sneak Peek!

Andy Kehoe "All Turns To Brilliance"

Andy Kehoe is gearing up for his upcoming show at Roq La Rue this October entitled "Arise Feral Night". This new series focuses on the otherwordly landscapes and nature-spirit denizens that populate Kehoe's work, however this new show opens up an even deeper portal to Kehoe's world, one that contains a similar magic and enigmatic mystery as that of Hayao Miyazaki.

As Andy told us, "Since it's in October around Halloween I decided to do a series based on the coming of night to my land. I've been meaning to do a night series for a while and this seemed like an appropriate time to do it. Most of my work exists in a state of constant Autumn and constant twilight. Night does come every once in a while but it's a different kind of night. Layers between worlds, tenuous to begin with, open up and intertwine. Fade in and out. So there's a lot of thin, overlapping layers of different worlds all converging and creatures wandering in and out of these worlds."
Here is a sneak peek at a few of these wonderful works coming up for the show! Andy will be showing alongside Charlie Immer.

Travis Louie for H.P. Lovecraft!

Travis Louie was recently asked to provide the artwork for the new reprinting of horror master H.P. Lovecraft's "Call of Cthulu". If this work looks familiar it might be because you saw the original at Roq la Rue as Travis' most recent show! Congrats Travis!
