The Gurley in NYC


A few days before Hurricane Sandy hit the North East I met up with Gurley – an artist from London whom I met through Jayson Lilley last year – on twitter!! She was here visiting for about a week, and asked if I would like to meet up in the city. Of course I did! I would have blogged about this awesome event sooner had Sandy not hit a few days later. The storm threw me completely off for about 3 weeks and then the holiday season kicked in. I did however have an awesome time with Gurley in NYC – we wandered around and went into bead stores, and wig stores and grandma’s attic looking antique stores! It was a lot of fun.

I’d also like to thank Gurley VERY much for my surprise. Before we departed on the subway, she gave me one of her pieces! The one featuring Mickey Mouse. I was really shocked and honored, and now I have works from both awesome London Artists Jayson Lilley and Gurley on display in my apartment. During our adventure I took some photos of her and her work… so I wanted to share them here.

She believed

Art/ Quotes

I do not recall where I found this graphic, but I had it saved in my “inspired” folder. The quote is lovely, and so is the type design. I’m actually considering taking a piece of this graphic and painting it. THATS how much I love it. Yes!

She believed she could so she did type design graphic

She believed she could, so she did.

iPad Light Painting

Art/ Technology

This video blew me away.. wow! It kind of reminded me of my experience at The Museum of the Moving Image last year. This video is about “light painting” and it is incredible how they have developed this way of creating it using the iPad.

Making Future Magic: iPad light painting from mcgarrybowen uk on Vimeo.

Quoted from their video description:
“This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world. We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.”

Amazing Artist – Jayson Lilley

Art/ www

You may recognize the artist name… or even this painting. I wrote an entry about Mr. Lilley last year. I truly loved his work… contrast just draws me in… and hooks me! [I’m actually convinced I’m addicted to high contrast, if that’s possible] Anyway, I had asked him if I were able to purchase one of his paintings. I hadn’t heard from him for a while and the next thing I knew he asked for my address. What!? I am still shocked but super excited. He sent me one of his paintings… the same one I was in love with last year. His “Moo Cow” – Red Devon.

His work is amazing but it is even better in person. I’ve never seen red so perfect before in my life. I have an “art wall” in my apartment and I plan to hang it there next to my tree painting. I’ll post more pictures later on but I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU to Jayson!

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you

Make sure you follow him on twitter and tell him how awesome he is! – @iamjaysonlilley
