I wish the @hulu tumblr would become sentient so it could love me back. #babyiwouldbesogoodtoyou
Phone tapping was a lot more fun when it was just in that one Miami Vice episode and it somehow only affected cigarette boats.
Sorry for the lack of new art lately! A lot of stuff moving around … some canceled stuff and some show dates moved. I also haven’t posted new Etsy art because there is a possibility that print series may be going somewhere else. More about that later. Thanks for the emails and messages asking about updates … it makes an artist’s day to have people actually interested in what we’re working on! :D
May & June have been pretty quiet, but July and August are already shaping up to be crammed with new stuff. And the rest of the year … OMG … if you are a movie fan, you are going to be really excited about some of the shows that are coming up this year at various galleries. WOW.
But in the meantime …
Sometimes shows (and screenprints) are cancelled. Sometimes miracles bring them back. Anyone want to see the rest of this???
Posting a new mini print series soon on my site. Here’s a sneak peek of one piece. :)
Spoiled for Your Approval, my TWILIGHT ZONE-inspired piece for Bottleneck Gallerys glow-in-the-dark show. I didnt originally order APs, but my family
Really looking forward to this show. Jason’s piece is looking so cool!
#sneakpeek at another piece I’ve been working on. Show opens may 18 at Gauntlet Gallery. More pics soon! @official__daftpunk #kawaii !! #art #daftpunk
My glow-in-the-dark screen print for the Righteous Rides show at Hero Complex Gallery. This is print #2 in my “Spoilers” series, and is inspired by the original Scooby Doo series “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?”. This time, I made most of the page black because I wanted the glossy glow-in-the-dark ink (which is more visible on dark colors) to show some ghostly activity even when you looked at it in daylight. Plus … a secret peek at Shaggy & Scooby! It’s sort of like two prints in one … even when the lights are on! The top photo is the actual print in daylight. The bottom is a mockup to show you what the glow layer looks like. I think the glow is a little darker green than that, though.
I’m too busy this week to make an animated gif like I did for my Twilight Zone print … perhaps I’ll do one soon. :) More “Spoilers” prints on the horizon soon, too, but in the meantime I’ve got some other fun printing techniques coming up in June.
Just a couple of bros hangin’ out, enjoyin’ some pickles.
Nobody filibusters like a brilliant “geek” when there’s a new STAR WARS film on the horizon.
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension— a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

Finding myself really choked up about the loss of Roger Ebert. I still remember when his former AT THE MOVIES partner Gene Siskel died … he was the one whose opinion I sided the most with, and I thought well, ‘eh … no need to pay atttention to the other guy anymore. But Roger Ebert in his “second act” — as Sarah Lewitinn so nicely put it — really came into his own. I came to love his writing even when I didn’t agree with what he wrote.
Here’s my all-time fave review of his (if you can get on the site now … his archives are overloaded with traffic) about Steve Martin’s SHOPGIRL. Ebert’s opening moved me so much, it has stuck in my mind all these years later.
My “Toonces” piece for the secret/surprise Saturday Night Live show at Gallery 1988. Not even sure how to describe what illustration style I used here … kind of a mashup between modern CGI and really lame ’80s movie computer animation (the glowing cliff scene at the bottom, etc.) which sorta fits for a DRIVE spoof. (If you haven’t seen the film, you should!)
Incidentally, I am shocked SHOCKED out of my mind that no one did either of the first two ideas I was going to spoof for this show … I thought for sure someone would do the same thing, so I picked Toonces instead. But since we weren’t allowed to share our artwork before the opening, it was a total surprise what anyone else did! I think I’ll finish those ideas up to post here later just for fun.
Thanks again to Gallery 1988 for inviting me to be in this fun show and congrats on the new location! The SNL artwork will be up at their new space — 7308 Melrose Avenue, LA — until April 20th.
My tumblrized copyright doesn’t appear on the actual print.
