Brunch With Sketchtravel
Come have brunch with me and the Sketchtravel gang! We'll be at the L.A. Marriot in Burbank from 9:30-11. After that I'll be walking around CTNX trying not to squeal with happiness from all the amazing artists and art that will be there. So come join in the fun and meet the famous artists at the brunch and then we can talk. I mean, Peter deSeve, Dice Tsutsumi, Ronnie Del Carmen, Enrico Casarosa, Chris Applehans, BRING IT ON!
I was recently invited to do some work in the Sketchtravel sketchbook. I'll soon have the image to post but until then we'll just say yipee!
Public Gallery Date and Time Set.
I'll be having a solo show at Public Gallery in SF running for about four weeks. The opening is July 1st 7:30-10:30. I'll have more info soon and when I do I'll be sure to post it.

2010 with a BANG!
Happy 2010 everyone. To kick off the new year I thought I'd do a few small updates on the site for everyone's viewing pleasure. I'll soon have most of my work set up to sell as prints and hopefully within the next few months I'll really get started on making a book out of my sketchbooks.
I've posted new portraits on the portraits page as well as new sketchbook pages. I have a lot of faith that 2010 will be a banner year so here's to progress! Cheers!
1 Banal Obsessions at Gallery Six was a hit and comes down October 9th
2 New solo show at Public Gallery in S.F. is in the works
3 New editorial work coming soon as well as something for Gama-Go
Thanks again and check the blog for more up to date information, cheers!
Four new works for Gama-Go up in the Illustration/Gama-Go folder. I'm currently working on new projects for my next show Banal Obsession @666 Gallery on September 18th. New work from California Magazine coming later in the year as well. I still have a few prints from the In Transit show as well as originals for sale. All work is framed and ready to hang on your wall. Cheers everyone.
In Transit is up!
The entire In Transit
catalog is finally up Here
The show at Cafe Royale is coming soon as well as new shirts from Gama-Go. All work will soon be on the site for everyone to see. I'm also busy with editorial work for a soon to be disclosed client. This is going to be a great few weeks for all my projects. I hope to see you all at the show on August 6th. Cheers!
I'm currently working on two solo shows as well as designs for Gama-Go
. The first show is at Gallery Royale
beginning August and running through the month. Opening reception will be August 6th.
The second will be at 666 Gallery
in September, the ending is TBA at the moment. Opening reception is Friday September 18th.
The works presented at the shows will be extensions of my sketchbook work. I've chosen the theme name "In Transit" for the first show as it encompasses the work I do in my sketchbooks whilst on the move from place to place. Though the work has been pulled form the pages of old tattered books the intimacy of the work stays true to the original meaning of a sketchbook. I hope to see everyone there and I'll keep the updates coming as the news pours in. Cheers!
New work in the ©Gama-Go folder! Check out the shirt designs and follow the links to the designs you like and buy them right now. I'm happy to say they are all available through the Gama-Go website HERE
New robot for your viewing pleasure in the Sketchbook Fever section. Stay tuned because sometime after the holidays I'll have some big news to share. The reason for my lack of posts on Banal Obsession and lack of new work on here will soon be revealed. Thanks for all the support.

Thank you for looking at my work and all your support. I've added some work in the sketchbook and portrait pages and I'll add more work as it comes in. Have a wonderful new year and Thanks again.
Publishing a book of my work
That's right, I'm publishing a book of my work. It is available on Lulu.com under Banal Obsession: the art of Eli Harris. I haven't seen it in print yet so I would wait to order until I give it the go ahead. I set it at a reasonable pricepoint for the print version and you can also download it for half the price. Check it out and tell me what you think.
A new folder set up for portraits with a few new pieces in it. I expect this folder to become mighty full in the coming weeks so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by.
New digital fun on the old blag. I'm working on some bigger pieces which should be done within the next few weeks. I'll post them as soon as I finish. I'm getting into some touchy subjects too so, I think I'll have to be very careful about the final products. I'm still stoked though, and thanks to everyone for stopping by.
Another new piece
Enjoy a new work in the Illustrative folder and on my blag. More sketchbook work is on its way. Thanks for all the support.
I've added a couple more images from my sketchbook onto my blog. I hope you enjoy them and I'll try to keep posting regularly so These old images don't get stale. Thanks for checking.
Note to self.
Remember to check copy before posting any written changes to the site. I'm plagued by horrible typos. What a drag. Please, if you notice anything wrong on the site feel free to tell me. Thanks to all for checking out my site too. Though I may not change this site too much I try my best to update the old blag as much as possible.
So long, and thanks for the hits!
