The times there are a changing! So many new devices, so many outdated codes and plug-ins. I needed a new website. I went to Square Space an amazing web building site that makes all of the updating chores easy, and constantly keeps your site up to date with all devices. The new format is very clean and easy to navigate. I'm adding more new things ever week. The new site will have more art to check out, but the blog will stay the same. http://www.davepresslerart.com/
This Saturday at Giant Robot Gallery GR2 is the Post It 9 Show. All art is done on classic 3x3 Post It Notes.
I have 10 pieces of Post It art in the show and they have so many other artists. A great warm up for the following Sat the 14th when A Very Robot Christmas opens. See you at GR2 this Sat!

The holidays are on there way! My next big art show pop-up shop extravaganza will be opening Sat December 14th at the Red Pipe Gallery in Chinatown. Lots of original art, prints and sculptures just in time for the gift giving season.
The show poster above will be available as an open edition UV printed 11"X17" poster on heavy paper. The process that I used to create the image is pencil and ink on paper scanned in to Photoshop then digitally colored. The old comic anthologies, or special issues always had a style that I'm still attracted to. I'll drop some more sneak peeks soon.

So my wife Lisa gave me a wonderful gift for my birthday this year. Several years ago we were talking about the future and technology, I said if in my lifetime any kind of tourist space travel becomes a reality that is the one thing I would love to do. Lisa said she has no interest in going to space, but would gladly send me if it became a reality. So last May she gave me a ticket to go on Space Ship II on Virgin Galactic. A more amazing girt I can't imagine. The most exciting part to me is not just the ultimate trip in the future, but the historical adventure myself and about 700 other people are taking part in. I've started a separate blog to journal the story: Dave Pressler Going To Space. As things happen, exciting, mundane or amazing I'll make entries with plenty of pictures since writing is not my favorite thing. Maybe I will be the second artist in Space after Allan Bean.
