Creatures of the Night

Sean Leonard
Tue 12.04.12
Joe Ledbetter and Nathan Jurevicius join us for an amazing 2 man show featuring new original work and print releases!


Lava Spaced-Out Bunny and Lava Super Bunny

Joe Ledbetter is influenced by classic animation, graphic design, and daily life, Joe Ledbetter's art is... well... a lot of things. Light-hearted in its approach, he often combines cute and cuddly creatures with unfortunate — albeit humorous — situations. With a lean on the subversive and absurd, these scenarios are all too familiar, questioning our tendency of taking life (and ourselves) too seriously. The 9 new paintings for the show focus on the "creatures of the night" theme, as Joe has kept his pieces dark, yet vibrant. Joe has utilized his very special "lava" aesthetic with variations on his infamous bunny character. From Fairy Bunny to Zombie Bunny, were sure you'll find a favorite.

Nathan Jurevicius has worked as a freelance illustrator since 1994 with many international companies and galleries. His most acclaimed project to date is Scarygirl, a psychedelic, dream-like composition of heartfelt stories and reinterpreted folklore based around a cute but slightly odd little girl and her giant octopus guardian. Nathan will be presenting 16 ink drawings that appear as a bonus section in the back of the newest Scarygirl graphic novel. These dark detailed characters each have their own little story waiting to be discovered.

Nathan also brought 18 of these original watercolor Owls for the Creatures of the Night show!
