Finally watched the first season of True Detective.
Interpreting a line from one of Charles Bukowski's poems.
Did a couple versions of Mick Fleetwood. You can't tell here but the second drawing is twice the length of the first version I did. I think I could stretch him even more.

About a solid 3 years in the making but it's finally here! The board graphic I did for Steez Magazine is finally printed and ready for you to tear it a new one! Or for it to be hung over the fireplace during your fancy wine and cheese parties. It's all up to you. Check out their new issue with the killer(ziinngggg) cover by Cleon Peterson.
The boards are on sale for a cool 40 dollars and come in either 8.25 or 8.5 because that's what real men, and women, ride. Link below:

Okay. I know I've about wrung this baby dry with all the recent attention but, this really was a high point for me. I figured one more mention of this baby's unstoppable quest to make you laugh and save a friend, or strangers, life would be okay. It's been a good run but I swear I'm done with the shameless promoting of this thing. It is time to make some new work.
Whipped up a new poster for New York Night Train's Soul Clap and Dance Off hosted by the amazing Jonathan Toubin. Go dance yourself to the brink of insanity for some possible cash money prizes on Saturday, September 27th at Brooklyn Bowl.

I did a quick portrait of Kurt Vile a few months back(pictured directly above) and decided I wanted to revisit it and turn it into more of an anonymous stoner guitar player zoning out while he/she jams in the living room. Note how I did not write 'spacing out' because that shit would just be cheesy.
Some of my work from the last year is currently hanging up on the walls of Gimme! Coffee on Lorimer Street in Brooklyn. Go check it out!!!!!

Snake Plissken and his fine-tuned techniques for preventing your premature death have been given the Bloomberg treatment and were showcased on Bloomberg Businessweek along with 6 other artists who have reinterpreted those average, boring choking posters into pure design bliss. Thanks to Sam Kolich and Venessa Wong for including me in this fine line-up. Click on the link below for the whole shebangin' article.

Just a little something for fun. Is it a famous movie quote? Is it folklore? Is anybody reading this?
My friends threw a party for their documentary and invited a few people to hang their work for a one night show. I was one of those people. Click on the link below to marvel at all their hard work and determination. If you love Kevin Bacon or Paul Erdos then maybe donate some money to the cause.
Still trying to make pet portraits cool. Check out this little guy and his UFO.
When a copy of Jaws sits in your DVD player for a week you may be tempted to watch it 3 or 4 times. You may also be tempted to do some little riff on the famous cover for an a-frame that advertises coffee.

My newest piece is purely a labor of love. Pink Flamingos is hands down one of the grossest, and actually shocking, movies I've ever seen, so it immediately earned a special place in my heart after I first saw it in my friend's college apartment all those years ago. I decided to take one of the most famous lines from it and finally pay some respect.
Could there be more from these two? Time will tell.
Summer themed work abound. And 2 headed cats.

Did some recent portraits. I've been out of college for 6 years and am proud to say that I have finally done not 1 but, 2 dog portraits. It almost felt like a right of passage. Now let's get down to brass tax.
Let me tell you 'bout THIS GUY! This has been some serious long time coming type of project. It's been redone, reworked, tweaked, chopped and screwed and been biding some serious time to strike. Well, the the iron's hot so watch out. It's REALLY coming out this time. Full detail pics and info on where to buy coming soon......
