No Sleep Till Brooklyn!

Dec 01, 2017

Once again, members of the Art Licensing team recently ventured out of the quiet countryside of the Green Mountains, on a special road trip assignment. ALI President, Matt Appelman, along with photographers Joe Mozer and Justin Ordway, departed Vermont in the early hours of a cold November morning to meet the pop-art mastermind, Dean Russo, in his colorful Brooklyn, NY studio.

Once the crew had checked into their hotel, they headed over to Dean’s place at Industry City Studios – Brooklyn’s newest creative hub, located in a complex of former warehouses on the waterfront in Sunset Park – to get to work. After a brief tour of the studio space, the first order of business was to set-up their equipment and capture some highly detailed digital files of Dean’s newest paintings. The guys quickly devised an efficient system of operation and managed to turn out over 75 new, high-resolution files for our licensing archives! After a long and successful day, the team retreated to their hotel, enjoyed some dinner and rested up for day two.

 

Their second day at the studio gave the ALI guys a glimpse into Dean’s brilliant and unique approach to painting; Not only did they get to witness the artist in action on his traditional medium of choice, canvas, they also observed Dean putting his creative touch on a commissioned Buddha sculpture! Throughout the day, the team worked with Russo to produce some “thank you” videos, for customers of companies that work with Art Licensing International and feature Dean’s work on a variety of awesome products.

The group relaxed and enjoyed a nice dinner at an Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, accompanied by Dean, to conclude their second day in the city and celebrate a job well done. The next day, the ALI team hopped in the car and headed back to Vermont. They were excited to get out of the office for a couple days, but ready to go home and get back to work!
