Evan Hecox is probably one of my favorite illustrators in the whole world. I’ve been in love with his work since the first time I saw one of his graphics on a Chocolate Skateboard deck some 10 years ago. The other thing I really remember about him was seeing him in the Sky H book from a few years ago. It featured him with Shepard Fairey and Groovision, it was a really influential book for me.
Now Mr. Hecox has a new book coming out titled Urban Abstract, which collects his work as far back as ’94. Because of his new book, he’s having a signing at Centre tonight, that starts at 7PM. Then he has an art show on Saturday at The Public Trust, which also starts at 7PM. These are both in Dallas, so if you’re in the area, definitely check these out!
