studio visit - Dave Flores

Been a bit absent from the blog, but had a chance to meet up with Santa Barbara based artist David Flores on Saturday.

David has been working on an upcoming show in Japan later this summer, and we sadly just missed seeing all the work - as it has already shipped. Dave is really prolific, and besides painting has been designing toys, magazine covers, luggage and shoes...

A little peek into some of Flores' product line above, and below an imaginary image of some of the apparently huge Simpsons characters he painted for Japan.

More DF product...

David is really one of those guys that you cannot help but love. Tough guy exterior, but really just a softie. I really need to visit Santa Barbara more often. I got to head home with a painting and a stack of prints...and maybe more to come?
