Feb 8, 2015 : Grammy for Best Recording Package

Stoked to announce that I won a Grammy for my work on the Pearl Jam Lightning Bolt album packaging with Jeff Ament, Joe Spix and Eddie Vedder. Thanks to everyone for the support and for the congratulations that have been coming in. It was an amazing project to work on and award or not, I was grateful to be involved.

Feb 1, 2015 : Original paintings now available/project requests

As some of you know, I was working with a rep to manage the sales of my original paintings who passed away in 2013. Juggling commercial projects and freelance work, I put the original sales on hold except through galleries I was working with. I am happy to announce that I have someone to manage sales of original paintings for collectors and those who are interested in seeing what pieces are available or to inquire about commissioned pieces.

Here name is Becki Chenoff and she will be able to answer any questions about availabilities, pricing, etc. Since I worked without a rep for a while, a lot of the pieces are from 2013...the Jaws of Life era. A lot of those paintings were featured in exhibits and some of them were featured in the Juxtapoz profile.

To contact Becki, send her an email at dpendletonart(at)gmail.com

I have a lot of fun projects coming up in 2015....if you work for a company and want to inquire about doing a signature project or hiring me for commercial design work or illustration, please send me an email directly dhpendleton(at)gmail.com. I will be managing all of those projects and working directly with all clients as usual.

Thanks to everyone for the continued support. I know I don't update too much on here but I am on instagram at least a few times per week.

Dec. 4, 2014 : The Opposite of Stop

Been staying busy with a few projects and upcoming art shows. Most of this stuff I promote on Instagram but my time is better spent working than promoting these days so I'm just keeping my hands dirty and trying to maintain the flow of work. If you've emailed me recently and haven't heard back, accept my apologies, I'm juggling a lot and I am the only person on the ship so I'm not just the captain, I'm also the guy who scrubs the decks at the end of the day and does everything in between.

First up, I have teamed up with Edison Manufacturing to help design a very, very limited wallet. Top materials, handmade in the USA and comes with a limited editon screen print. Really happy to be able to work on something like this where the focus is on craftsmanship and quality materials. Please check out the pre-order page for specifics and other information here.

I also have a new print that has been in my shop for a few weeks, entitled "Function Follows Form." I did this one last year and never made it available until recently. It's available here in my shop. ALL orders from the shop will arrive in time for Christmas. For domestic orders, please make sure orders are in by Dec. 18th.

>>>> I will also have a few new products up in the next few days, including a version of the Pearl Jam "The City Sleeps" print that had the wrong date (oops).

Thanks to everyone for the continued support. Apologies again for delayed response times. I'm doing my best to focus on deadlines and orders and all that stuff is on top of the creative/art obligations and duties.

Also, coming up into the holiday season, I still have prints available through Poster Child Prints...a set, in fact. Signed and numbered that I mentioned a while back. There are still some editions available so please check those out here at the PCP site

July 22 , 2014 : Ultimate Ears Boom Limited Artist Edition speaker out now

I teamed up with Logitech/Ultimate Ears to produce a limited artist edition of the UE BOOM speaker. It's a wireless speaker that features 360 degrees of sound, waterproof, stainproof and super durable. This model is called the 'Jettison' and I worked up an original piece specifically for this model. Early on, I received a sample and couldn't believe how amazing the sound quality was so I was excited to get involved with this. Production is limited to 200 pieces.

You can order it online and it is also available in select retail stores and boutiques. Check out the information here.

Dec. 6 , 2013: Charity Buzz Pearl Jam Painting Auction, Another Limerence update

The painting that I did at the Volcom store in NYC is live at auction right now through Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation on CharityBuzz. This was a painting done at the Pop-Up shop the night before the first Brooklyns show. All money raised from this goes directly to the Alzheimer's Association. There is one final day left so please check it out if you have any interest. The money goes to a great cause and the painting is 48" x 48."

The Limerence books are officially gone but I'm in the process of getting a second edition printed up. I will have more news about that as they get closer to delivery but I'm hoping to have them here this month, possibly before Christmas.

I will also have one more round of brush sketches up around December 12th in the store for those looking for holiday gifts. Thanks to everyone for their continued support.

Nov. 23, 2013: 50/50 Art auction, more Limerence news
I am participating in an auction to raise funds for a skatepark, organized by Project Loop entitled, 50/50. To learn more about the cause, go to the Project Loop site. To check out the auction (there are a lot of names you'll recognize who have donated art) go to the auction site. To see the deck I painted (below) here is a direct link to that page.

Also in Limerence news, the final batch of books will be available in the online store on Wednesday, Dec 4 at 4:00 PM EST. Not a whole lot left but I'm looking into printing up another batch so hang tight if you haven't been able to get one.
Thanks for the support, everyone. More prints and original art will also be available on Dec. 4th as well so please check the store if you're looking for Holiday gifts. And thanks for the continued support!

Nov. 16, 2013: Additional 'LIMERENCE' editions available Tues, 11/19 *UPDATE BELOW

I will be posting 50 additional copies of Limerence on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 4:00 pm EST. There will be copies 65- 115 out of 150 available copies. There will also be some original pieces up again. More news soon...just staying busy and working on upcoming projects and shows. Thanks again for the continued support.

UPDATE: This batch sold out really quick again. Had a few emails and just wanted to clairify that the reason I am making them available in 'batches' is simply because it takes a long time to pack and label them. I have other projects that I'm working on at the same time so it was the only way I could manage the shipping properly on top of the rest of my daily duties. The last batch will be up in early December. I will post the date a week in advance on here and on my twitter account. Thanks again for all the support...it bums me out that some people aren't getting them who want one but in doing a small batch, the main reason was because I had no idea what kind of interest there would be and taking the expense on myself of all parts of this, I had to work conservatively. Please check back soon.

ALSO there will be some more original artwork posted the closer we get to the holidays that will be available. There are a few sketches left now in the store but I'll have some paintings up as well after Thanksgiving.
