Quotes, Lines & Lyrics: Part 3


This is my third and final piece for "Quotes, Lines & Lyrics" at Hero Complex Gallery on February 27th. This one comes from my love of all things Jonathan Richman and his Modern Lovers classic "Pablo Picasso"




Quotes, Lines & Lyrics: Part 2


 This is my second piece for "Quotes, Lines & Lyrics" at Hero Complex Gallery. Show opens February 27th. This one was inspired by the line, "radiated men will eat the flesh of radiated men" from the poem Dinosauria, We by Charles Bukowski.



Quotes, Lines & lyrics: Part 1


This is the first piece out of three that I recently completed for the show "Quotes, Lines & lyrics" at Hero Complex Gallery, that'll be opening on February 27th. This one was inspired by the Depeche Mode song "Never Let Me Down Again" from their album Music For The Masses.

Sketchin in 2015


Been a wee bit since I just posted some sketchbook nonsense. Time is a little more precious these days. Hopefully I can strike back in a big way now that winter is in full swing and hermit mode is a very appealing idea. 


Mad Max



Last year I got an Iphone. This year I watched the entire Breaking Bad series. I am starting to catch up. These sketches are part of the grieving process/separation anxiety I am going through now that's it all over.


 Sometimes you're just with your bros in the woods doin' bro shit.

SURF THE RAT / DRINK THE BROWN MUGS!!!!


I think it was almost a year ago that I first mentioned the possibility of this happening and it took a little longer than I thought but they are finally here. Gimme! Coffee in Brooklyn, NY decided to use the image for their holiday line. So psyched they are finally out. They are only available at their NYC locations and on their site gimme!coffee.com so get surfin' the rat while you're drinkin' that brown. 

Below are some pics of the wild ride this image went through to get into your hands.



I really wanted those little drowned rats hidden at the bottom of every cup but it just didn't seem to work with the shape of the mug.

So glad I didn't use this first colored version.

FAIL!!!!






Welp, I stated about a year ago (fuck, that went reaaaaaallly fast) that I was going to attempt to draw every day for a year. I'm sure you noticed but, I'm gonna come clean; I didn't make it. Lasted about 7 months. C'est la vie. I think I started the whole odyssey with some Halloween themed drawings and we might as well end it that way, with the addition of my Edward Gorey themed a-frame for Gimme! Coffee.

This here is a sneak peek of something bigger that I'll post in a little while. Not too hard to guess what it is.
