I was happy to find that Dick Blick carries Dr. Martens concentrated watercolors - was worried they were getting phased out or something...now if I could just hunt down a new palette for them...mine's like ten years old and is looking pretty wrecked. Anyway, here's a couple new pieces. The skull one is for an artful dodger themed art show in Columbus. It's kind of hard to tell from the picture, but there is a separate matte with an acetate window on it. The second one is just a screwing around piece...nothing earth shattering, just getting comfortable with my inks after three lengthy jobs using mostly the computer.
Also it must be mentioned that the white neon has officially died. Apparently the water pump exploded on it and when it did , wreaked havoc on my engine and timing chain. I hate cars. Will someone just invent a teleporter already? Anyway, she was a good car for the 7 years I had her and I'm sure will end up as a 1' foot cube like my last car did.

For the past four-five days I've spent 95% of my time in the vicinity of my drawing desk / computer area working on stuff for the Warped Tour / Alternative Press brochure....finally done and waiting to hear back from the art director if any changes are required. I'll post pics of it as soon as I'm able....in the meantime, here was a poster I worked on earlier this month for the kind folks at Echo Ditto . They just celebrated their 3rd anniversary and commissioned me to do a poster to mark the occasion....here's the final piece as well as pics from their party where five framed copies were given to the main players. It was a fun project to work on.....
