The prolific Jeremyville: artist, designer, creator of comics, author and painter, opens an art installation at The Brooklyn Brothers Gallery NYC next week.
The itinerant renaissance man and his merry band upped sticks from his studio at Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia, relocating the base camp to a loft space in SoHo NYC only a few weeks ago.
And boy has he taken the city by storm, creating a full body of work articulating his response to The Big Apple.
Trained as an architect, his creativity comes from a true passion for drawing, applied in the widest range of situations, from the production of toys and apparel, to product design, skateboards and sneakers, to the creation of animations for television, illustration, murals and comics.
He has also published books like ‘Vinyl Will Kill’, the first to document the scene of Designer Toys, and ‘Jeremyville Sessions’, on his collaborations with big companies like Adidas, Microsoft, Converse, Diesel, MTV, but also with artists like Gary Baseman, Miss Van, Friends with you, Geoff McFetridge, Tim Biskup and hundreds of others. He recently came back from speaking at a creative conference in Buenos Aires, and is speaking at Semi Permanent and Pictoplasma in early 2011.
Come to see the magic for yourself, and meet the artist Jeremyville.

The lateral thinker Si-Yeon Min of Allied Operations, released a book on creativity.
Using an easy-to-follow interview format, the author lays out his ideas on how off-the-wall thinking can lead to genuine discovery. He shows the reader the importance of living one’s life outside of fixed perspectives. The author hopes that readers will learn how to look at the world from a different perspective and live life free from the imperative of so-called “efficiency.” Many are fixated on finding “the correct answer” and are afraid of how they’ll look to others if they come up with an idea that nobody else can understand. But the best ideas tend to emerge from free and hindrance-free environments, and even the most “off-the-wall” idea can go from “the field” to real life by trial-and-error, becoming a unique brand of its own.
Twenty-five volumes of Interview with Delicious Storm have been printed in a limited edition. Each cover design features a different color, somewhat like art pieces, so that it can prolong physical form as a book in a digital era. One of the book’s featured characters is a stuffed rabbit from a toy company in London (the copyright was granted free of charge!).
The book’s overall look and feel is consistent with the author’s playful and idiosyncratic spirit as well as the book’s subject matter. The book is recommended for creative-minded teenagers and anyone in a field that requires inventive thinking.
Contributors: Bernard Almonte, Gary Anderson, Jae Won Chung, William Clark, Fumie Iizuka, Mariah Young, Yuxi Wang.

As a freelance illustrator in Toronto, Canada I try to keep busy making images with various people. I am a member of the illustration collective called “Not An Octagon” (notanoctagon.blogspot.com) and we organize art shows in Toronto throughout the year to promote our new work and to have fun.
Our most recent show: “The Side Show” featured the carnival-themed work of nine Toronto illustrators and was up for one week. Before that was “The Good Show,” a one-night opening that focused on the idea of neighbourhood: people, art, music and of course good food and drink. My contribution to this show was a series of six tree portraits based on the places I walk by everyday. Doing work for shows is liberating because it allows me to do personal work and I can explore ideas without an agenda.
My professional work is an extension of my personal work. I enjoy collaborating with other creative people. In the past year I have done work for a local folk band, Peirson Ross and the Wilderness, from sketching the band while onstage with my collective, to designing posters and album artwork.
I also enjoy working with environmental groups, such as The Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation; GreenThumbs/Growing Kids and The Beehive Design Collective where illustration can be used for education as well as for visual interest. For me the most important part of making images is collaboration: connecting and sharing ideas so that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.
