I'm happy to announce the publication of my first art book, Born In Concrete: The EK Series. This hardcover book collects all the work from my first personal project Entartete Kunst (EK). All the pieces that make up the series are featured, along with write-ups and detail images. The design materials for the Endeavor Snowboards and the Industria Mechanika collaborations are included, as well as images from several exhibitions that have featured work from the series. The book also contains a process section that outlines the creation of one of the pieces from start to finish, and to cap it off, the book also contains a bunch of EK material that hasn't seen the light of day.  

The book will be released on November 12th, 2013 and is being published by Design Studio Press. Based out of California, Design Studio Press is a publisher that focuses on releasing art and educational books by designers in the entertainment industry. They have an amazing catalogue featuring books by incredible artists including Syd Mead, Sparth, Stephan Martinere and Scott Robertson just to name a few. Their site, the their books, are definitely worth checking out. 

Born In Concrete: The EK Series is already available for pre-order at Amazon (for a killer deal at 30% off), and at various other online distributors (Book Depository, Waterstones, Booktopia, etc.) and will be available on, or after, November 12th, 2013 at most reasonably cool book/art/comic stores near you. 

Big thanks to Scott, Tinti and Ceci at Design Studio Press for making this book happen and for shepherding me through the process!
