Enter the incredible world of Alex Pardee, inhabited by a disturbing menagerie of misfit monsters and improbable superheroes plucked from the very nightmares of childhood.
"Awful | Homesick" is a 96-page hardcover collection featuring the fine artists favorite works from 2005 to 2008. Mixed with the dark, bizarre, and horror-inspired characters, "Awful | Homesick" also shows Pardee's influences from a comic book and graffiti-inspired childhood, with an exploration into the different styles of line work that he has worked on over the past few years.
Northern California-based artist Alex Pardee has been creating fantastical garish and tortured creatures in both fine and commercial art capacities for over a decade. While gaining notoriety working with Warner Bros., Reprise Records, Upper Playground, Hurley International, RIDE snowboards, Definitive Jux records, and artwork for the band The Used, Alex has been able to focus attention on developing his personal fine art career. Awful ] Homesick, Pardee's first book, contains illustrations, photos, fine artwork, and chronicles several collaborations Pardee has had with Craola, Sam Keith, and Dr X. In keeping with Pardee's intent to create his perfect notebook, the first pages of the book are designed to evoke yellow lined paper. Awful ] Homesick also features a foreword by Jeben Berg.
