And that’s why you always leave a note.
My pieces for Gallery 1988’s “There’s always money in the banana stand" show.
"Save Our Bluths" & "Them?" - 10 color screenprints, edition of 75 each, $60
More references than you can shake a hook at.
In two days…
It’s gonna be big. My painting is ridiculous. Also, the official launch of the book, which includes my painting from last year, as well as something like 10% Otis alumni and teachers. It’s kinda awesome that way.
Crazy 4 Cult 5 - Welcome to New York
Here’s my painting for the upcoming Crazy 4 Cult 5 at Gallery1988. This is my tribute to cult and beloved movies that have been based in NYC, and holy crap have there been a lot of them. I’m really happy with this and really excited for the show, just couldn’t wait to share with ya’ll. The show opens July 8th and should be outstanding.
I realize that Tumblr doesn’t allow you to zoom in, but just take my word, there’s references to 36 movies in there, maybe I’ll list them all after the show.
Also, Titan has released a book showcasing the last 4 years of the Crazy 4 Cult show, with an intro by Kevin Smith. My piece about Los Angeles from last year is somewhere in the book, go buy it, it’s available at most bookstores now (they still have those things?)!
Fighting the Foo
Hello there everybody. Been really busy lately working in the print shop, we recently moved from a tiny 2 car garage to a loft space that is somewhere in the neighborhood of 2400 sq. ft. Makes all the difference in the world. It used to be a product photographer’s workspace, so there’s really great lighting, but also shutters on the windows to keep the place from greenhousing.
Here’s a blurry pic of me where you can sort of see the size of the place.
In the bottom left you can see a tiny glimpse of set of posters I designed and printed for a video shoot, one I was immensely proud to be a part of. A friend I’ve known since middle school, Pete Levin, recently directed a video for the Foo Fighters, it’s a song off their new album called “Miss the Misery”, and he asked if I would contribute some prints for use in the background. So I obliged him.
Note: those are not stills from the video, those are my crappy blinds in the background.
The video for “Miss the Misery” will premiere this Friday on Fuse, as part of their Foo Fighter Friday special. It’s an awesome video, one which I can’t share too much about (read: anything beyond what I’ve posted here), but I’ll post it when I can, I’m glad I could be a part of it, thanks Pete!
Is This Thing On?
Happy New Year everyone, hope your holidays went well and that you’re adjusting to the new year in fine fashion. In any case, it’s a new year, and new shows, first up, a tribute to comedians:
This Friday, should be a lot of fun. Funny or Die and Michael Rapaport are hosting, so I gonna try to make fun of how he runs (you ever watched the ending of True Romance? He looks like an ostrich trying to run hurdles.) without getting my ass kicked.
I got asked if I could take aim at Jon Lovitz, which I knew would be interesting because of all the varied characters he is known for. I think it turned out pretty good. I had fun with my references.
"The Devil, The Liar, The Critic, and The Thespian"
Anyway, it was a lot of fun to paint, and can’t wait to see the entire show.
You can see the full list of artists here, as well some preview images at the g1988 blog.
Attention SF peoples: Bad Dads
should be amazing, wish I could be there.
Here’s mine, called “Rolling Stones”, painted on a Rubik’s cube.
Here are my two paintings for the upcoming Horrorwood show at the WWA Gallery in Culver City, opening Oct. 15th. Based on The Descent and Halloween, my idea was to highlight how far the female character has come in horror movies, from really the first woman survivor (yet she’s still very helpless most of the time) to the most complex and self-sufficient female survivor yet.
(forgive the crappy quality of the picture, will get a better one on opening night)
Hope to see you there!
And I’m not going to talk too much about it right now, but here’s what I’m working on next, gonna be cool….
That is my workstation during the day, I love it.
That is my workstation at night, love that too.
We’ll see how long I can keep it up though.
New pics soon! “Horrorwood” October 15th!
WWA Gallery, Culver City. Oct. 15th. Me and something like 20 other extremely fine and talented artists.
A couple weeks away. Killing it to get it all done in time, but it will be so worth it. You should come! Yes you!
