So, I’ve been a bit of a ghost lately.
I haven’t been slacking, I haven’t been avoiding drawing, much as the 100 Drawings seems to have been abandoned. On the contrary, I’ve been grinding and grinding, and grinding away some more on an upcoming solo show at Gallery 1988 in Venice, California.
The show is called Abandoned Menagerie, and the collection is an all-new body of paintings and drawings focused around my influences in popular culture, with special emphasis on my childhood influential imagery. I’ll have more info soon, but all the pertinent data for the show is on the postcard below. I’ve already released a few teaser images on my Tumblr page, but here’s a couple more.
I hope to see you there!
Here’s another 100 Drawings for you, so close to getting halfway done!
When I first started the 100 Drawings project just over a year ago, I thought it would be an easy and fun exercise to keep myself drawing and painting. Little did I know I’d soon be grinding away on a big solo show that would take up almost all of my free time to work. So, this simple undertaking seems to have fallen into a bit of disrepair. Drawings are started and then abandoend to the pile. On top of that, with all of the acrylic painting work, drawing seems to be pushed aside for painting, which only makes the drawings take longer. Lately, I’ve been able to work on several paintings/drawings at once, and more of these seem to be nearing completion.
Enough excuses, here’s the next one for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. Enjoy!

So it seems like I just keep adding more projects to work on every week, making my already stretched too thin time that much more skint. A little late, here’s the fourth drawing out of my goal of 100. My plan originally was a couple a week, but now it looks like I should just shoot for one a week. Let’s hear it for lowered expectations! I’d rather keep it to one a week rather than drop the quality, but we’ll see how much time I end up having. As usual, swing by the store for purchase info.
Ink, watercolor and acrylic on heavy watercolor paper. 10.25″ x 7″ (2010)

Meanwhile, if you haven’t swung over to NoodleKnobs yet, swing on over. We’re starting to get into a rhythym with our new alt-parenting site that hopefully offers more than the average “my baby is great, ain’t parenting wonderful?” Mommy and Daddy blog. Enjoy!
