Salival.fr interviews Cam De Leon

Christophe from Salival.fr conducted an interview with Tool associated artist Cam De Leon recently, and is now available on his website.  Here’s the question I know you’re all dying to ask him:

If you don’t mind, can you tell us more about what happened for this great combination to cease ?
Well, I appreciate your interest and concern about that, and I’m sure it’s coming from a good place, but I don’t think there are enough who actually care, to warrant spending much time on it. But I’ll just say in more than 10 years of working together, I contributed as much as I could, and I love Adam like a brother. Working with him was always a meaningful challenge, and I appreciate the experience. But they’re clearly in good hands with the list of super talented artists you mentioned so I don’t assume they have any particular need of me, and I have way more projects of my own than I can possibly manage.

There you go.  A great interview and well worth reading!

That’s good to hear him speaking about whatever went down and his relationship with Adam so respectfully… glad it’s ended up amicably, at least from Cam’s perspective. Shit happens… but being able to move on gracefully is a good thing. I hope that it’s mutual.

I met Cam at the 3EG in LA (where Karnivool headlined) and he seemed like a nice guy… but I sure as shit wasn’t going to bring THAT up with him. 8`) I dig his work.

I just ordered a couple prints on his site:  happypencil.com
I’m really happy about the price.  $60 for signed lmt editions.  I was surprised they were still available.  Can’t wait to put them on the wall.

I wish I could order his artbook, but the shipping price is too expensive to France…

I’ve said this a million times before but if this was Adam Jones ‘ fault he’s a bigger TOOL than I thought. Ever since they got Alex ‘chakra eyes in everything’ Jones their art and music keeps continuing to suffer. They were at their peak when they had De Leon. Plus he’s a far more superior artist. More creative and each piece looks different from the next as if it was done by a different artist. I’m afraid I can’t say the same about Jones.
