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.
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.

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.
Another teaser of a piece coming out next month, because hey, why not?
Dedicated to tumblrer “wreakhavok”. Stay strong, bro.
Calling Dick Tracy fans … my DT wrist radio giclee print for Bottleneck Gallery’s “Gizmos & Gadgets” show is now for sale on their site! :)
My ANNIE HALL Lichtensteinian set of prints for last week’s Woody Allen tribute show is now for sale on Gallery 1988’s site!
Each is 14x11 and you get both prints in the pack. (Framed pair shown above is sold, sorry!)

“Calling Dick Tracy”
My piece for Bottleneck Gallery’s “Gizmos & Gadgets” show. Although we usually do artwork based on movies for these group shows, this is an homage to Chester Gould’s legendary character in general … not specifically the Warren Beatty film. In my opinion, there is no gadget or gizmo more awesome than Dick Tracy’s two-way wrist radio. (He later had a wrist TV, but I like the old-school gadget better.)
The exhibit opens friday in Brooklyn, and partial proceeds from the show will benefit the Humane Society (they support a different charity for each show). All of the remaining artwork will then be online sometime Saturday … I’ll update this post with the link.
Whoa … thanks for the shoutout! :D
Good time to point out I have 3 APs of these left (out of 7). I put them on my new etsy.
Been cleaning up my computer (New Year’s resolution, yeah!) and I seem to have a ridiculous amount of silly illos that I have not posted anywhere yet. So … here then is this one.
And come on, Series 3 … GET HERE, ALREADY!!!
My piece(s) for the Woody Allen tribute show that opens at Gallery 1988 (Venice) next Friday the 11th. I did a pop art homage to this scene in ANNIE HALL. The pair come together in a set, and I could not be happier with how the final prints came out. The colors really look great in person. (For starters, the faces aren’t as pink when the dots are full size.)
Anyway, I laughed when I saw the show poster, because Jason Liwag and I are twinsies for this show: he spoofed Andy Warhol for BANANAS, I did Roy Lichtenstein.

Whoa, is this really happening ….??? Pinch me.
Thanks, LNJF!!! :D
