“Love Lies Bleeding” by A. Richard Allen
Communication Arts 57, 2016
For one reason or another, we see a number of beautifully executed projects go unpublished. Creative directions change as publishers’ needs change, and while we’d never hold it against them (it is the nature of the business), we can certainly share some of the great projects that don’t quite make it to the finish line.

This latest piece by Jonathan Bartlett was created for “Summer Before the War,” Helen Simonson’s much anticipated follow-up to the best selling “Major Pettigew’s Last Stand”. While it’s always unfortunate to see a project killed, nothing can detract from the fact that this lovely piece was still created.
Take a look at Jonathan’s blog to learn more about his experience.
Ladies and gentlemen, it appears we may have made Carlo Giambarresi’s 3×3 announcement a bit prematurely yesterday, as the contest has honored not one but TWO of our fabulous Italians!

Now in its 10th year, London’s illustrious “Art Below” has selected conceptual artist Anson Liaw to be one of 25 featured artists for its upcoming summer show.
Showcasing both emerging and established international artists, the show will open with a private event on June 28th at the Tabernacle Gallery in Notting Hill. Heralded as the “Taj Mahal of Kensington,” the Tabernacle was originally built as a church in 1887 and currently serves as a cultural and entertainment venue that celebrates a distinguished variety of art forms.
In keeping with Art Below’s mission, which aims “to enrich the everyday life of the traveling public by giving fresh insight into the very latest in contemporary art whilst at the same time providing a platform for emerging and established talent,” the featured works will be displayed on billboard spaces across major London Underground stations throughout the duration of the show. We certainly consider that to be fantastic exposure!
