Update from Logan Hicks

HELLO NEW YORK
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Knowing when to move on is almost as important as knowing when to begin. After living in Los Angeles for nearly 8 years, the time has come for me to relocate. Los Angeles has been very kind to me over the years, but at the end of the day, it just never felt like my city. This June I will be relocating to New York City. I already have a studio in Williamsburg, and will be in New York the first week of May to begin the stressful search for apartments. If *anybody* in New York is reading this, and knows of an apartment (1or 2 bedroom) in the Williamsburg area, It would be appreciated if you could let me know.

XLARGE SHOW - MAY 17th
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To mark my departure from Los Angeles I will be having a 'Farewell show' the XLarge Upstairs Gallery on Vermont Avenue. I invite those of you on the west coast to come have a drink with me, and check out my newest body of work.

In addition to the new body of work, I will also be showing some gems that have been tucked away in my studio. I started to clean out my studio, and I keep running across pieces that have slipped into the storage corners of my studio. Many of these pieces have been sold out for years, so this will be your last chance to pick up the pieces.

XLARGE MERCHANDISE
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To commemorate this show I have worked with X-Large to produce a number of items that will be available exclusively at the Los Angeles X-Large shop

Here are the computer mock-ups of the pieces I will have available. Obviously the final product will be slightly different from the computer comps, but there is enough for you to get the idea:

Writers Bandana

OG Bandana

Writers Pants

We may even have a few other things for sale, but I cant spill the beans on everything just yet

BLACK RAT PRESS RELEASE
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the years I have had my work reproduced on posters, shirts, magazines, and a host of other mediums. I was rarely happy with the reproductions, so I had given up on doing prints. Last year I was approached by the people over at Black Rat Press about doing a print. Because of the past experiences with reproductions I was hesitant. After a lenghty talk, I was assured that nothing would be released unless it got my 100% approval. After a few proofs we arrived at cross roads where the artwork intersects with the printing process. I am extremely happy with the results

For the first print, I decided to do the 'Sunset Apartment Complex' piece.

I am flying over to London next week to sign the prints, and I expect the prints will be released the second week of May. For info on edition and price, check out the BlackRatPress.com website

BABY ON THE WAY
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lastly, I normally keep these mailings strictly business, but I couldn’t resist this last little bit of information. This October, my girlfriend and I are expecting our first child. I know that this doesn’t mean squat to the majority of the people reading this, but as you could imagine this is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us. I never knew it was possible to be simultaneously happy and scared shitless. Go figure.

We still don’t know if it is going to be a girl or boy, but we are 4 months into it, and all outward indications are excellent.

Once again, if you are in New York, and know of apartments in the New York / Williamsburg area, let me know, please!

Over and Out!
