Sorry, this one’s already sold!
Been experimenting like crazy in the studio lately. Exhibit A: They Called Him BAM! Acrylic, gold leaf, all over a small piece of birch which has been collaged with comic book pages. Been in a super exploratative zone this year, and this is the newest stage in that vein. I have discovered that birds are too much fun to draw, and as such, it didn’t take long at all (plus it’s itty bitty). Expect to see more of these soon! And yes, someone contacted me after posting a sneak peek of this on my Facebook page and requested it in advance. Apologies if you had your eye on it, but as they say: The early bird…

Hey gang, in all the grind, I realize I’ve been lax in my promotion. So check this out.
I’ll be in two shows next weekend at Gallery 1988- The first is a super secret show sponsored by Disney and Marvel for the upcoming Avengers movie release, with a surprise twist on the location. I’m super thrilled to be included in this show, and have pulled out all the stops for my piece, including a custom floating frame, collage elements, and even some sculptural elements. Wish I could show you some sneak peeks, but we’ve been put under strict wraps for the show. More soon, full details are in this here flyer:
The second show is a tribute to Memes, also at Gallery 1988. This is a collection of art from various artists all taking their cue from various internet memes. You could consider a meme an in-joke on the web. Various imagery, clips, sayings and general snark are all encompassed by the “meme” genre, which isn’t really a genre at all. There’s a better explanation for “meme” here. A warning though: For those not familiar with memes, this show isn’t gonna make too much sense at all. For a better bit of context, you could easily spend hours at Know Your Meme. You’ve been warned, it’s an addiciting time-suck. Here’s the full details on the show:
Hard to believe this 100 Drawings project was started over a year ago.
Actually, it isn’t hard to believe at all. Well, after almost a year and a half, I’m halfway done. How’s that for efficiency? Needless to say, the project has evolved past my original hopes in terms of quality, and I’ll be re-evaluating what I want to do with the collection in the long run. I’m even considering a Kickstarter project to help get the book going once everything’s finished, but that can wait for now. Enjoy Natural Passage, acrylic on paper.
