Thursday night saw the launch of onethirty3's latest exhibition, featuring the artwork of German duo Herakut. onethirty3 is an Artists Installation Space within Hoult's yard, hosting artists to create site-specific art installations.
Herakut is the combined name of Hera and Akut. The partners work together on the paintings, using paints and spray to make figurative works of bold colour with photoreal elements.
It was a great night in Hoults Yard, Newcastle's most exciting hub for creative businesses. The yard contains over 50 business' including: artists, photographers, software developers, fashion designers, film editors, TV producers and more.
The work by Herakut covered the walls of onethirty3's space. The room was filled with local art lovers all eager to see the work and mingle with likeminded creatives.
The exhibition space itself is connected to resident artist 'Hush's studio, his work is quickly gaining recognition and his prints are rising in popularity and price. Work of his can be found in the alcoves of the adjoining room.
The yard also houses Unit-44, which doubles as a base for a design and photography team and Gallery space for international artists. Unit-44 host the ongoing White Walls project, which has transformed the former industrial yard, into a bright and engaging display of the best of today's current and emerging underground artists.
Joe Kubert has been drawing comics for a living non-stop since he was 12 years old. Here he talks about his process and how he approaches his job. A must see for anyone involved in making comics and anyone with even a cursory interest.

Scanning through gallery at ZBrush Central is a regular pleasure and over the years I have been constantly inspired, and often awe struck at the creations. Since the release of the ZBrush 4 The work which has appeared has become insanely good. With the latest release the ability to construct highly complex hard surfaced models (such as the bike and tank images below), mixed with soft and delicate organic work is possible. ZBrush has finally become THE tool for the modern digital artist.
I thought I'd share some of the recent additions to the site, some images are from ZBrush 3.5 and rendered in dedicated software (such as Pixar's Renderman) but all the work is constructed and sculpted in ZBrush. Enjoy:
I'm tutoring a course at The Mushroom Works Studio...
9th September - 14th October 2010, Thursday nights 6-8pm
An introduction to figurative sculpting is a fully tutored weekly class, which will take you through the basics of sculpting from a life model. Starting right at the beginning this six week course is ideal for those with little or no experience of sculpting from life. The course is lead by a professional sculptor (Me!) and each week you will receive a handout of notes to accompany the lesson.
Taster sculpt: Nose / Lips / Ear / Eye
Blocking in the pose. Proportion and gesture. Balance. Gravity.
Anatomy. Shape vs Form vs Detail. Landmarks. Muscles.
Great Artists in the World of Comics:Alberto Breccia
I found this old interview on Argentinian artist Alberto Breccia. The quality is not great but the insight into this true artist is well worth the time.
"One of the most unsettling of comics artists, Argentina's Alberto Breccia is also one of the genuine veterans, with fifty years' experience of challenging the conventions in favor of his own demanding artistic path." (28 min)
A good translated interview can be found here:
HP Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror by Breccia, can be read here:
And last, but not least, an extensive bibliography of his work, including much english translations can be found here:
