Thanks to everyone who came to the opening!

When You Fuck Up a Cutout There's No Way To Fix It!

But you can fix a xerox copy of it with a knife and some glue.  So, now there are two t's in street.  Which one do you prefer?  Come see the original fucked up cutout at the show!

A Campy Cutout of "Kitschy Skulls"

Whenever I am at a loss for ideas I like to arrange some objects from around the house.  Most of these skulls come from the CVS seasonal aisle.

Pet Memorials

I just finished this one for a friend that recently lost their beloved boxer.  The other two are older, but now that I have done three, I figured I could publish them as a series in progress.  I have lots of friends with pets.

A Word of Advice to Struggling Artists

To be a fine artist, indeed, one must use more than just one's hands.

Sunday, September 6, 2009


I actually did this one about six months ago, but I finally got around to making posters of it.  It was really meant as an exercise in portraiture, but I think its starting to work in the overarching theme of my new body of work.

On Camelot and other disasters...

I call it,
"Death Panel."
Face it, man!

Battle Royale

In the immortal words of David Hasselhoff, "this is a mess."  I mean. . .  You see, I just saw the James Ensor exhibit at the MoMA (go!) and Francis Bacon at the Met (you slept, its over) last Thursday and riding my bike back from the bus station I past WHYY's scrolling message on 10th Street and it said Michael Vick had just signed with the Eagles and , and , and . . . E. A. G. L. E . S.       go!

"City Inlet"

I once made a stencil which read, "YOUR TRASH RUNS INTO YOUR SOUL!"  and painted it by the sewer grates in my neighborhood.

Here is the mother of depravity and her two devil's spawn.

New Poster

"If love be courtesy refined,
And you be civil in profusion,
That you will to my hopes prove kind,
Is but a natural conclusion." - Antonio's Song, Don Quixote pt I, chapter XI

All Done.

I'll look at it again tomorrow and see if anything else needs to be added.  Then I'll paint out the pencil lines.

One More Day

A few more leaves at the top, some stars, motion lines and a title.

Took a Week Vacation.

It was nice to get away from this one for a while.  As always, it's taking a lot longer than I anticipated.  I'm happy with the frog and spider.  I think I'll save the two shells for last.  We'll see.

First Figure and Face

I'm trying to capture the likeness of the family that commissioned this piece: Wife, husband, daughter, two dogs and two cats.  They do not, to my knowledge, own a crab.

I'm looking forward to working on some of the long lines.  I can't wait for some depth to develop.  I hope that it does.

The Weekend

I'm trying to save the most fragile parts for last so that I don't have to tip toe around them later.
