Interview with #tinalugo! “I’ve never been the type to do a crazy amount of sketches or drafts. Once I had an idea I just went for it. The tricky part was knowing that I am essentially painting backwards, as the finished product would later be mounted on the painted side. So I played a lot in the mirror, figuring out what looked good, and if it was readable when flipped over.” Visit our blog for a wonderful Q&A with @Tina_lugo!

David M. Cook’s Going Away Art Show Party
November 16th, 2013
David M Cook has been a corner stone of the talent that we have celebrated here at Cotton Candy Machine. His meticulous style and mind blowing imagery has gained attention from Rolling Stone Magazine, New York Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Juxtapoz and Hi Fructose Magazine.
By the way of Louisville Kentucky, David has been living and working here in Brooklyn and has had two very successful solo shows with us here at CCM. He has enjoyed his time here in NYC but as all creative journeys need progress and change, David is moving to Los Angeles! Before he packs his bags and gets on the road we took the opportunity to celebrate him once again.
We thoroughly enjoyed Escape From New York with Bonethrower: a one night going away art show party and print release. New York will miss you, David Cook!
COMIC ARTS BROOKLYN 2013
Saturday, November 10th
The Cotton Candy Machine was super stoked to take part in the Comic Arts Brooklyn festival, hosted by Desert Island Comics. In addition to selling prints and giclees by Tara McPherson, our table also featured the fantastic Steve Manale doing small “low cost, low quality, low contemporary” superhero portraits for $3! We had an awesome time and look forward to doing it all again next year! Thanks to everybody who came out and don’t forget we are only 9 blocks away at 235 South 1st Street. Stop by and say hi any time! We look forward to seeing everybody again real soon.
Opening for Jay Ryan and Diana Sudyka
They Didn’t Believe Me, But I Knew It Was There
November 8th to December 8th, 2013
Jay Ryan learned about screenprinting from Steve Walters at Screwball Press in late 1995, where they worked together until 1999, at which point Jay started The Bird Machine print shop in the basement of his apartment building. Jay’s initial clients were his friends’ bands, his own band, and the clubs where they played. By stumbling into the right place at the right time, he fell in with a new movement of screenprinted poster makers across the country and around the world.
Diana Sudyka (pronounced: soo-dee-kah, and it’s Polish in case you were wondering) is an illustrator, and printmaker from Chicago, IL who creates work for book and album covers, screenprinted gigposters, and original watercolors. Diana’s images draw inspiration from the natural elements on Earth while imbuing the animals with a supernatural spirit.
After being larger than life in Paris for#FranzFerdinand's show at the #RockEnSeine#durock #festival. This #gigposter is now being released here at #cottoncandymachine for the first time! They will be released here at 12pm EST.
There have been some truly dedicated halloween costumes based on Tara McPherson's paintings and the characters that inhabit them. Here are just a few that we are in love with!
