…at the Hall of Justice.

Tomorrow the show opens! Meanwhile…at the Hall of Justice at Subtext Gallery has its opening reception from 6-10PM, less than two miles from the Convention Center. Take a break from a long day of buying comics, watching movie previews and wincing at awful cosplay at the San Diego Comic Con and head over to the art reception. Live music, refreshing beverages, and many of the artists (including myself) as well as this limited three-day show all for your pleasure. Check out the details below. See you there!



Are you crazy…?

…Crazy 4 Cult?

Tonight is the night. Crazy 4 Cult at G1988, starting at 7PM. The line is apparently expected to circumnavigate the globe twice, so get there early. Got an update, apparently Kevin Smith will not be able to attend, which is blowey, but the show should be fantastic anyhow! TONS of great art, and many other Edward Scissorhands interpretations as well. Be sure to check out the artwork of Dan May, Ana Bagayan, Jason Limón, Kelly Vivanco, and a special collaboration between Craola and Amy Sol among many others, as it is always an amazing inspiration and at the same time, frustration to see these amazing artists making it happen. All the pertinent details are on the sweet-ass flyer below. See you there!



More art than you can handle…

…or at least more than you should handle, without gloves.

Three group shows in July coming very soon, for your viewing pleasure:

First off, the Kokeshi: From Folk Art to Art Toy show presented by the LATDA and JANM opens July 11, and goes to October 4. Each artist is given a traditional wooden Kokeshi and told to go crazy with it. A  huge lineup of amazing talent is in this show, and I am honored to be a part of it.

Then the always fantastic Crazy 4 Cult: 3-D show at Gallery 1988 is Thursday, July 16th, 7-10PM. The show features 100 artists paying tribute to cult classic films. I’ll be in attendance, drooling all over everyone else’s amazing art, and I will have two pieces in the show: my movies are Fight Club and Edward Scissorhands, respectively.

“I am Jack’s Broken Heart”
Acrylic on wood, resined.

“Severed Edward”
Acrylic on wood, resined.

Lastly but certainly not least-ly is the “Meanwhile…at the Halls of Justice” show at Subtext in San Diego, Friday, July 24th. Corresponding with the San Diego Comic Con (the gallery is only a few minutes away from the convention center), this show has several artists re-imagine superheroes on an off day. Amazing talent again, be sure to check it out, especially if you will be at the Con.

“Darkest Night”
Acrylic on wood, resined.

I’ll be at the G1988 show and the Subtext show. Hope to see you there! Please contact respective galleries for purchasing information.
