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.
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!!!
Whoa, is this really happening ….??? Pinch me.
Thanks, LNJF!!! :D
::Swoon:: Thank you, kind sir, for the stamp of approval and the awesome movies. Looking forward to seeing THIS IS 40.
Still can’t believe I caught this, BTW. I follow Apatow on twitter, but I only scroll through my feed for a minute every few days. Added bonus: Adam Pally (Max on “Happy Endings”, which I LOVE) also favorited it. ha.
OK, I’ll stop nerding out now. :) On to new stuff …
Judd Apatow opening at Gallery 1988.
So honored to be a part of this rad show.
Check out all the actor and artist cameos!
Yay! Both of my Apatow prints are now for sale on 1988’s site.
THE CABLE GUY:
(framed version is sold, sorry!)
And just for fun … here is my Cable Guy print photobombing this snap of Judd Apatow with some fans. :D
AFTER THE 1ST OF THE YEAR, I’M GOING TO START TAKING ORDERS FOR CUSTOM PRINTS
I’ve not really had time up until now to do many individual projects, as gallery show prints take up all of my extra time, but I am looking to raise funds in order to move in a few months, so I’m gearing up for double (triple?) drawing duty. :) My desire for a change in scenery can be of benefit to your walls!
THE GOONIES, CASABLANCA, The Beatles, THE BRADY BUNCH … whatever you have in mind*! Benedict Cumberbatch dressed like Ronald McDonald and riding a plaid unicorn??? You got it!
Although I do many parts of my drawings old school with pencil or ink, etc., I almost always finish the composite in digital, so these would be for a digital or giclee print (your choice), but as you’re paying for it, you will receive the only copy. Each commissioned print will be signed and numbered 1/1.
I’ll post pricing/timing details after the holidays, but in the meantime, if you’d like to talk to me about a potential project, feel free to drop me a line. Just use the subject line “Custom print”. Please also pass this along (or reblog) if you know of anyone who has been looking for a certain pop culture print (cartoon portrait, alternative movie poster, whatevs) that they can’t find out there. And FYI, I’ve been trained to draw in many illustration styles, so feel free to challenge me on a specific historical and/or spoof style!
Thanks and Happy Holidays!!
*OK, I may draw the line at something I just really don’t want to watch … like say, THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE. Though I do like lots of stuff — even “weird” stuff — so try me!
And here’s my other piece for the Judd Apatow show that opens next week at Gallery 1998. It’s an homage to this scene in THE CABLE GUY. Which itself is an homage to this scene from the classic STAR TREK series (and as such, I’ve peppered some STAR TREK references in here as well). Incidentally, this is also somewhat of an homage to my previous time spent working in the Pepsi design studio and my awesome bosses there. OK, that’s a lot of homages.
It was deceptively difficult to draw in the bad illustration style (bad perspective & proportions) in the ye olde timey medieval portion at the top, ‘cause your brain constantly wants to do it “correctly” instead as you’re drawing. :) This whole piece ended up taking over 100 hours to complete.
Would you like a refill on that Pepsi?
