It's finally here! The launch event for my new book with Andrew Hem, Dreams Towards Reality, is tomorrow night at Nucleus Gallery.
At the last moment, Andrew decided to hand-paint each of the box set covers, rather than having them laser-cut. That means that each box set will include six original pieces of art, including a sculpture, four paintings and a matchbox collage. You can see a couple of sneak peeks of the box set art below.
Please come out tomorrow night to get your book signed and check out the first box set edition, as well as the 30 limited edition drawings!

Please join me this Saturday, October 20th for the Andrew Hem: Dreams Towards Reality book release event at Nucleus Gallery in Alhambra. After a year and a half of working on this project with Andrew, our big day is fast approaching! Besides having your book signed and embellished by Andrew, you will also be able to view the original artwork he created for the special editions and a mural designed especially for the exhibition.
The Dreams Towards Reality clamshell edition, which is limited to 30 signed and numbered copies, is bound in luxuriously textured Japanese cloth, and the spine is embellished with the book's title written in Khmer script. Each clamshell holds a cloth portfolio that protects a mysterious and evocative drawing, many of which will inspire the paintings in Andrew's next exhibition. Hope to see you there!
