Ha, sorry I've been AWOL and havent been updating my blog as much as I should , but I've been up to my eyeballs in commercial work (that of course Im not allowed to show yet or ever)....anyway, I've managed to work on a few things here and there....first off, I'm proud to announce that Jeff Richards, Mike Guidone, and I have regained the C2 workspace on front street where we've put on shows in the past. I've been needing a much larger environment to work in and it'll be nice to talk to people other then myself for a change....right now we are planning out our first show scheduled to happen around Halloween so stay tuned for updates...
Also, I contributed a custom to the Reconstructing Misfortune show at Munky King on the 8th of October....there's a whole slew of artists I'm proud to be in the company of including Frank Kozik, Andrew Bell, Ferg, Chris Ryniac, TADO, Brian Morris, Luke Chueh, Daniel Danger, MAD, MCA, Jason Siu, Motobot, Little Friends, JPK, Beast Bros, Abe Lincoln Jr and more.....
Here's more info
And last but not least, I worked on a Giant Peach / 594 Apparel collaboration ad that's running in the newest issue of Juxtapoz, so go pick it up.....

Head on over to Horrorwood and you can download my papercraft character King Reggie IV along with designs by fellow GPers Luke Drozd and Adam Swinbourne. Just make sure you use safety scissors and try not to eat the paste.

Well, growing up I was somewhat of a gamebook nerd (which has morphed into videogame nerd as I've gotten older) and one of my favorite series of all time was Be an Interplanetary Spy. The first one I got was book 4 - Space Olympics (which a friend tracked down for me) and it's been kind of cool to look online and find the different covers that I used to just stare at for hours and have some memories come rushing back.

Man, I was just looking and the last post I made was from over a month ago and it wasn't even about my own work. I'm such a slacker. Anyway, I've been in commercial job land doing stuff I can't really post, but still working on projects here and there....just finished up another Giant Peach ad that will be running in the June issue of Juxtapoz. I've been on this greek and mythological god kick for the last couple years and we figured out a way to make it bleed into my GP work....with this piece, over the past two and a half years I've done 11 ads for The Giant Peach and have really enjoyed working with them. Here's a link to all the ads if you want to check 'em out...

I found a PERFECT Canson sketchbook the other day (the people at Michael's have to think I'm insane watching me check to make sure there arent any bent pages) and hope to fill it up, although I do have to admit I've kind of been eyeing the iPad and the gears in my head have been grinding, thinking of ways I could use one to assist in my work (for one as a digital sketchbook using the SketchbookPro app)......so I'm debating whether to just give in or wait until the 2nd generation iPad comes out......

Go check out some of my friend Mike's art that he has up for sale......
"So, as many of you know my daughter was hit by a truck a few weeks ago. She was hurt pretty bad but is recovering well. Much quicker than expected actually. All of the well wishes and positive vibes were much appreciated. There is still a long road to her full recovery though and the financial fallout from the last few weeks is starting to become more clear.
During this time I had to turn down a couple of petty well paying jobs. I also haven’t been able to work everyday. As you can imagine being a self employed artist is a pretty tough path. In fact many of you know this from first hand experience. If I don’t work everyday it’s not good. The bills are starting to come in from the hospital, insurance, prescriptions etc,etc. So, things are pretty tight right now.
The positive side of that is that I am forced to get off my ass and start hustling again. So I am offering a bunch of my paintings and original drawings for sale on ebay Take a look at the link below and if you see something that strikes you… bid on it. I am setting the reserves pretty low so they will be affordable."
