Prepping panels like a fiend…

…the studio floor looks like a million empty speech bubbles.

Which is a good metaphor for not a lot to say. That is, not yet. Still prepping, sanding gessoing and sanding some more. About 16 panels in progress, and then I need to actually paint them up. Focusing for now on the charity show at Distinction. 57 amazing artists, and trying to get my piece done for the Juxtapoz ad. Nothing like some publicity to brighten up your day. Piece is looking sweet, but between the deadline next Friday and leaving for a wedding this weekend, it’ll be a matter of squeezing everything in. Oy.

I owe you two Daily Drawings. I’m including a recent painting to show you what I’ve been up to. Not everything is about drawing every day. Now that I’m at home for the next two months, the drawings may even slow down for all the painting that’s getting done. Here’s what some of that looks like. More soon.

Cooking up some mad biscuits…

…get ready to salivate.

Spending the last few days cutting, sanding and prepping all new panels for a whole new batch of work. I realized the other day there’s almost no new work left in the studio- everything is out at various group shows! Zoinks! Need to wrap up some projects for sure, but really need to get some new stuff done. I’ll be part of a tight group show coming up in two weeks at Alphacult. I’ll be showing alongside Josh Taylor (who’s headlining), Downtimer, Blinky, Matt Linares, Thom Glick, and Keller. All great artists, and the space is sweet to boot. Shop is in Long Beach and I’ll be there as usual to sign kneecaps and give out sage life advice for free. Get me a drink and I might even talk your ear off the entire evening. Actually, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll do that anyway. As usual, more details later, stay tuned! Also on the radar, I’ll be featured at Cannibal Flower in July. Still not quite sure where, but when I know, you’ll know! I’m backed up on Daily Drawings, I know, here’s a bunch!
