Urban Abstract by Evan Hecox and Show Tonight

Last night after work I drove out to GR2 for the release and signing of Evan Hecox’s new book, Urban Abstract.The get together was pretty small and mellow, but that was okay, I didn’t have to wait in any lines. Above you can see the little camera sketch Evan did for me, which I thought was pretty rad.

The book itself is absolutely amazing and is a lot bigger then I thought it would be. The book literally covers the last 15 years of his career, so I guess it makes sense, but you can tell they had to do a lot of editing to even this much fit. It’s really great to finally get to see all of his work combined in one place, with a section for Plates, Linouts, and then Projects and Installations. On a personal note, the book smells really good, one of the first things I noticed, haha…
You can pick up the book over at You Work For Them.

Also, if you’re in LA, be sure to stop by the Kinsey/Desforges Gallery in Culver City tonight from 7 to 10 PM. The show is centered around images from Mexico City. Should be a good time.

Check out a couple more photos from the book under the cut.
