This particular illustration is based on the Russian fairy tale, "The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship." Prints are limited to 50 and go on sale March 30, 2012. Read full article for more info!
This Friday, October 7, 2011, a small exhibition of my work will open at OTTO in Fullerton, CA. They're calling it "A Trip to Leavens World," and it features my usual mix of bizarre creatures and strange landscapes. If you're in or near Southern California, stop by on Friday and say, "Hello!" Opening reception takes place during the Fullerton Art Walk from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Here's a new piece of art that I created for an October, 2011 exhibition at OTTO in Fullerton, CA. The show is set to be called "Leavens World" (HA!) and will start on October 7 and run for the remainder of the month.
This piece in particular was inspired by my evening walks with my infant son this summer. Every evening, to calm him down before bed time, I'd take him on a walk along the canyon just north of our house. And no, we don't have moose here in Southern California.
Last year I was invited to take part in an incredible collaboration which brought some of the best vector artists together for charity. Illustrator Stephen Chan coordinated a the project, which saw the artists of the BloodSweatVector collective team up with the artist-driven Renmen Project.
Chris Leavens creates story-rich artwork, surreal landscapes filled with bizarre monsters and fantastical characters. His illustrations have appeared in galleries, computer games, books, magazines, TV shows, and feature films.
