Last week I worked on a project for Insomniac Games and SA Studios to help promote the XBoxOne game Sunset Overdrive. This art was originally meant for tee shirts but we then used it as a mural piece on display at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood. Three other L.A. artists were involved, Eyeone and Tristan Eaton. With ILoveDust in the batch, as well.
Edit: More info and a time-lapse video of the mural here.
Our shirts will be given away at E3 this week. It’s basically a scavenger hunt taking place in various locations near Sunset Blvd. Keep your eyes set on Sunset Overdrive’s twitter for times and locations.

Some of the work I’ve done for Nike will be on display at their benefit/art show for C.H.A.P. The event is called Nike Graphics Studio Poster Show. It takes place Saturday, June 15th @ Disjecta Contemporary Art Center (Portland, Oregon).
It’s an awesome group show.
If you’re in the area drop by and enjoy.

Our “Hurts Like Heaven”-Coldplay video was released over a month ago. We’re quite happy with it. Specially since we created it in such a short time. We do wish more scenes could have been fully animated. An animated full length feature would have been just as incredible, as were the original intentions before the idea of the comic book series even came about.
So far it’s had over 5.5 million views. It’s amazing to see people creating fan art for it already. It’s also a bit shocking whenever I run into them. Thanks to all the fans and of coarse the haters (the ying to the yang), as well. Thanks to Emily, Fortiche, Passion Pics., and the entire MX team. I should also thank JAG and Carlos Nieto for helping refine some of my background art. They saved my ass during the homestretch of the project.
On a side note, I’m thinking of selling some of my original art that was created for this project. If anyone is interested email me before I put it on ebay or etsy or whatever. Basically anything in the video is up for grabs.

It’s official. A couple weeks ago the band Coldplay announced the project I’ve been working on. It’s basically a comic book mini series. It tells the story of their main character Mylo Xyloto. Which is also the name of their latest album. The mystery behind this peculiar name baffled their fans for quite sometime. Originally the comic was supposed to be an animated film but time was an issue… and so our sequentially illustrated version was born. There is still some talk of the film being made, though.
Mark Osborne, director of the first Kung Fu Panda, is writing the comic, along with script writer Dylan Haggerty. Steve Hamaker, colorist of the classic Bone series, is also on board.
The first 3 issues are done and I am currently working on the 4th. Also in the works is a music video I helped art direct that coincides with this project. That should be wrapped up sometime this week.
The book will be released in Feb, 2013. A small run was sold at Comic Con a few weeks ago and possibly another batch will be available prior to it’s official release. The cover for this pre-release was done by Vladmir Shelest.
Lots more to come…

I just got back from working in Paris with the amazingly talented Passion Pictures and Fortiche Studio. I was fortunate enough to work with such a seriously talented team. No exaggeration, these guys know their shit… and I miss them already.
So these last couple weeks I was art directing and illustrating the music video which coincides with the comic we are debuting at Comic Con, next Friday. We’re having a panel and a signing that day. Come by and say hello (Friday July 13, 2012 1:00pm – 2:00pm @ Room 23ABC & Signing @ 2:30).
The video is a prologue to the comic. There’s still a lot to do. I’m not exactly sure what I am allowed to show yet, unfortunately. Which is not much, I’m sure :\
Instead, here are some random pics from my trip.
…more on Instagram.

So, I redesigned my website finally. Goodbye Flash version. Hello new LOSFOKOS Lots of new work through out. Specially in the apparel section. I’m also selling some of my original art. I’ll be adding more originals soon.
Here a some other places you can find us online. Some of which are updated more so than our portfolio site:

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months since I quit the day job. I kind of expected to have a little more free time with side projects. Things have been too busy for extra curricular shenanigans. I even had to bail out on a stop motion music video for Danger Mouse. Would have been fun.
I definitely have quite a few surprises coming up.
These past few months I’ve been hard at work illustrating a comic book series that will be premiering at SDCC this year. There will most likely be a panel set up as well. Unfortunately, I can’t share any of it and I can’t do any name dropping, either. Sorry, agent P.W. Herman won’t unveil his secret mission just yet.
Another project I’m trying to get off the ground is a vinyl toy series called SomberSo•SoSomber (working title). The preliminary models will be carved out of wood for exhibition purposes and then duplicated out of vinyl. They will come with hunter/gather accessories and a hunting dog will be sold separately. Here are some preview sketches:
I might start a KickStarter for S.S.S.S.
More to come…

Infamous Apparel (owned by department store Tilly’s) stole a design I did for the Salvation Army’s Wardrobe Apparel. It is currently on their store racks.
100% of the proceeds generated from TSA’s clothing is donated to people in dire need, world wide. People holding onto their lives depend on this kind of support. For shame, Tilly’s, taking money away from those in need :\
Infamous’ knock off (notice they didn’t even bother changing much):
Welcome to the apparel industry, folks.

I don’t usually use found images this way but when I discovered the original photo I found it extremely inspiring. I felt compelled to recreate it just like that one kid that is moved by the most amazing sci-fi film, runs home and draws all of it’s battle ships and characters.

Corey S. Lewis’ SHARKNIFE
After I drew this piece it sat on my desk for days. I colored it pretty quick so I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it yet. Leaving it as is, though.
Hopefully, this will be my last fan-art piece in a while. There’s other stuff I’m planning on tackling.

My last day at work, at Hybrid Apparel, consisted of painting the warehouse floors, which is being converted in to an office space. We worked our asses off crawling and painting for some very long hours. In fact, our deadline consisted of just one day. Eventually, we left around 2:30 am, pretty exhausted yet proud as can be.
Photos taken by the folks at Hybrid. Thanks to everyone there for making it awesome!
