BOOK COVER FOR STEPHEN JARED’S THE CHAMELEON THIEF OF CAIRO

Available now! Stephen Jared‘s espionage thriller The Chameleon Thief of Cairo. I was lucky enough to be asked by Stephen to illustrate the cover, the third installment of his Jack Hunter series. Print and ebook versions are available on Amazon. Stephen is an actor and writer and is currently the associate producer of a forthcoming documentary on the legendary movie poster artist Richard Amsel.

“It’s 1948. The war is over yet trust among nations is low. While Cairo is jittery with calls for revolution, American spies are murdered, and new eyes are needed on the ground.
Having earned recognition for heroics in China during the war, Jack Hunter is asked to assist in gathering information. He and his best friend travel to Egypt hoping to revisit the spirit of earlier adventures. Shortly upon arrival, however, what they find is not a lively escapade but a changed world, people torn apart by grievances, dark alliances to money and power, fundamentalism, and cynical, suspicious characters on all sides. The darkness of war seems to have settled into people’s bones. As a result, Jack’s latest tale is his most harrowing, and could even be his last.”

Exhibit Next Week & My Store Now Open!

homeartfinal

Escape this blistering cold and join me for some hot cocoa, candlelight, and eros on Sat, Dec 5th, at 7pm! At Home Art Gallery in beautiful Port Jefferson, Long Island (only a few minutes from where I live, right next to the Long Island Sound,and near Stony Brook University, which I graduated from a few years ago), I will be exhibiting several of my paintings.

For those who weren’t able to make it to my debut show in October, this is your chance to see my Alain Robbe-Grillet inspired acrylic and ink paintings, which are my interpretations of scenes from the first four films of French filmmaker, writer, and genius Alain Robbe-Grillet.

Other paintings will also be on display, as well as older artwork (abstract pieces), which explore the same themes present in the Robbe-Grillet series: namely, pleasure & pain. The exhibit will be up until the New Year.

Welcome to my den of sin

… to my noir-infused underworld of murder ballads, hard-boiled odalisques, gangsters, jazz musicians, beatniks, and aesthetes.

My name is Elizabeth Yoo. I am a freelance illustrator and noir writer living in New York.

My tumblr blog lejazznik was my first attempt (a few years ago) at making a website– it mainly became a place for me to post and reblog my favorite films, photographs, music, art, and literature. With this website I hope to finally achieve what I initially wanted to make: a focused, visually stimulating refuge in which I can share my favorite things– the things that make me happy– and indulge in my many interests.

At the moment I am working on a series of paintings inspired by the films and novels of Alain Robbe-Grillet. I can’t wait to share my noir stories with you– they will all be accompanied with an illustration or two.

Please enjoy your stay. Today is also Nancy Sinatra‘s birthday. So let’s celebrate.
