Overspray launch Wednesday Nov 12th!

Overspray: Riding High With the Kings of California Airbrush Art

We are super psyched on this new Picturebox book, a lavish art book on the golden age of LA air brush artists of the 1970s. Here's some succinct info from the press release: "Fueled by a combination of intense demand, sleepless nights and brutal competition, the four men at the center of L.A.’s airbrush art market–Charles E. White III, Peter Palombi, Dave Willardson and Peter Lloyd–embarked on careers encompassing work for Playboy, Levi’s, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and major studio films including American Graffiti and Tron. Together, their work came to define the look of illustrative graphics for a generation of viewers. This book tells the story of these four artists for the first time through hundreds of images of the artists’ best and best-known work, unseen production roughs, documentary photographs and other ephemera. Viewed now, their surreal, funny and utterly slick imagery seems all the more fantastic–combining technical precision with wild flights of imagination that bring to mind the work of some of today’s top artists."
Editor and designer Norman Hathaway, artists Charles E. White, Dave Willardson, and book contributor Mike Salisbury will be on hand to speak and sign books. the event starts at 7pm.
Picturebox has put together a pretty website for the book, check it out.
