So I made this t-shirt design last night but I think it will be quickly deleted off of my skreened site so I figure I will post it here to. With all the media hubbub about Four Loko having to change its product ingredients do to people dying I figured there was a nice grass roots movement being built. Well the I'M with COCO was very cool and trendy so I stylized it after that. So lets see how long the I'M WITH LOKO T-shirt stays on skreened. They have removed half of my other designs. So go get your I'M with LOKO shirt now before they close it down. :)

Art imitating the Media??? Joris Goulenok Bullys in Acrilyc

I was just telling a buddy about a concept of mine that had to do with creating imagery instantaneously based on twitter buzz or our 24 hour news. I thought it would be such a cool concept... Well looking around I stumbled on the work of Joris Goulenoks on Flickr... It made me smile for some strange reason even though the imagery was not smiling material... or was it... Any way he has a bunch of great drawings representing some kids kicking another kids ass. This is not a concept I would have come up with but it was one the mark as far as what is being discussed in the media. I have to say I find his work extremely intriguing. Even down to its stylization being that of a children's book. Well done Joris... you have my attention!

My Bio

So lately at the request of galleries and such I have been developing a short but sweet bio for myself. I am hoping it tells enough about me that people understand where I am coming from. Let me know your thoughts?

At a young age, David Rosen delved into a multitude of art forms, including painting, photography, drawing, music, sculpture, ceramic, and even cooking, always experimenting on how to use these tools to express his ideas. At the age of 9 he moved with his family from the Catskills in New York to Rome, Italy where he traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East visiting art museums and taking in the amazing architecture. After completing a degree in Fine Arts from UMBC he began a career working for large organizations designing their web presence.

After ten years of experimenting with many different formats, David turned his attention to creating images that embody his own style and personal point of view. He began to utilize his skills in photography and computer graphics to create marvelous photo illustrations. His work is notable by his masterful use of color, strong composition and a measured interpretation of subject matter.

David lives with his wife Cari, his two daughters Eve and Zoe, and an orange dog named Willow.

I am very excited about my latest prints that I completed and put on display at Plum. I am really seeing my work evolve at this point. I have received some good praise on my latest work and I hope to do a few galleries this spring but I really need to get more work done. Anyway, here are two of the latest on display at Plum in Shepherdstown, WV. Please stop by and take a look and send me an email and let me know what you think.

What to buy for a watch loving geek!

So most women out there are scrambling to figure out what to get their husbands for the holidays. Times are tight yes and you might not have the money to buy your husband the ipad or the latest droid or he probably has both if you do have the money. There are two things that men like that are always good gifts that you can afford. Shoes and watches... OK some might not admit it but there is nothing better then a fresh pair of kicks or a watch that will have your boys geeking. So I figured I better post some ideas for you ladies. For the man that appreciates a well designed cool watch head right over to Tokyo Flash... I know what your thinking... some crappy money thieving website over the water... but check it out. They have what I believe to be the most cutting edge watches out there. They have really rethought the interface and completely overdone there watches. Check em out! Oh and if someone talks to my wife let her know she can get one for me. :)


I am back! And I am featuring Yellena James

I have just become a fan of a very talented artist and her name is Yellena James. We all know how much I am into color with my own art but I really enjoy the intricate detail she has in her work. Her work to me look as if you are examining a dream under a microscope. Some of the work could even be underwater or outer space images.

I have begun to follow her blog and you should to at and on twitter @yelenajames . Take a look at a few images I have featured here and then head over to Yellena etsys shop and buy some holiday gifts. :)

By the way... it is good to be back blogging. I will show you some of my new work next week. till then... Stay warm.
