We have a few things to talk about:
1) As the title of this post implies, this will be the last entry for the month of March. Eric now has to concentrate on work that will have an impact on the future of his art career and he says he shouldn't do any more new images. Besides, we gave you guys a pretty damned good February with almost a new post/image per day. We figured, taking March "off" is pretty justifiable, right? I'm sure this is all temporary, so please stay tuned.
2) People have asked about Eric's new art book as well as where they can get their hands on sketchbooks from the past. The new art book is forthcoming and as soon as it's ready for sale we will talk about them here. Let me just tell you that the new one puts PREMIER[e] to shame - in both production and price tag. As far as old art books go, the first few (Copper:HEXAGON, Titanium:CYLINDER, Nitrogen:CUBE, Halogen:HALO... there's a pattern here with the titles. Eric is nothing if not pathological) were limited as limited as can be and are no longer available for purchase. You can probably buy the most recent one, Element:SHAPE, (see what I mean?) from Jason Schachter. Please see sidebar for contact information or click on his name and e-mail him directly. But as a special treat and sort of a "Thank You!" to the die-hards, we give you the images above. They are from the aforementioned Titanium:CYLINDER book and are all part of Eric's pre-prodcution work for Obelisk. Congratulations, you just got an old book for free. Lucky you!
Actually, we're trying to bamboozle you with old art. There's nothing in the studio he's allowed to show just yet and we're taking a month break, so you get old sh*t. Shut your mouth. It's free, for crying out loud.
3) For those of you in the Orlando area this upcoming weekend, Eric and Stephane Roux will be attending MEGACON 2010. Please see the link for more details. Come visit Eric and laugh at his embarrassment because Stephane is so much faster at doing commissions.
4) Last but not least, we'd like to give our undying thanks, love and respect to our dear and talented friend - Valerie Nunez. She did an unbelievable and kick-ass work on the blog's new header video. WE LOVE YOU, VAL! Not only did you plus up an already great buzz reel, but in adding all of your hyper-kinetic flavor, you almost made us swallow our tongues while we were watching it! Argh! You're so AWESOME and invaluable beyond belief! Get it? In-VAL-uable? Ha! For that joke, I'm pretty awesome too, I guess.
I think that this is the longest and most extensive I've ever written on this blog. And I'm sick to my stomach about it. I don't do this much writing even for myself! F*ckin' stupid Eric Canete art blog! Anyway, that's all for now. We'll see you in a month.
