This whale I just finished, and a bunch more of my artwork, will be up at The Magic Hat Artifactory this summer (July through September), so stop by and check it out! They'll give you free beer. The good kind even!
Hey look! I finished something else!
I only had about a week left before I would either have to stop calling myself a painter or actually paint something. So, out of fear that I would have to start answering the question of "What do you do?" with "Talk about cats and creep on the Facebook pages of strangers", I squeezed out this bear.
Even though this buys me a few more weeks, I think my hibernation is over. For real this time.
It's been months... but I finally finished something! I can't believe it either.
You can see these four little paintings this Friday at The S.P.A.C.E Gallery's Small Works show.
Burton officially debuted it's 2012 gear this weekend which means now I can show you these!! I did the graphics for the Chicklet boards (one of their kid's lines) and I'm really psyched about how they turned out. I like to think this is what it would look like if Lisa Frank and I had an illegitimate art baby (Lisa, I'm keeping it but I don't expect anything from you).
You can get a closer look here and I'll post some more pictures when I get my boards!
Here's a two-fer in case you think I spent all of May lazing around painting lamps and throwing solitary ice cream parties. Technically you'd be right, but not only did I participate in the food chain (ice cream is on the very bottom with Cheetos and algae) but I created these family friendly depictions of it as well. I'm 101% positive this qualifies me to teach any life science to 8th graders. That's going to look nice on my resume. See, no slacking here!
For Christmas I gave myself a fancy new printer. As with any new gadget that enters my life the learning curve was sky high. But I'm happy to report that after many hours of work and a landfill of wasted ink and paper I have one print for sale!! I'm so excited! It's name is Firecracker and it looks awesome!
Many, many more to come.
These little paintings (ranging in size from 12"x12" to 6"x6") are my submission to the second annual Small Works show at The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery. It opens this Friday (Dec. 3rd) and runs through Jan 29th. Yep, a two month show!
If you do happen to check out the show you may notice that in person my artwork isn't blurry like my photo here suggests. This is because I use a very special photography technique where I spin around in a circle whilst chugging a bottle of Boones Farm (Wild Island flavor) right before every shot. I do it this way because taking a crisp clear picture is soooo pedestrian. I am an artist and I must express my creativity at all times or I will just wither away and die.
So if you want to see what these little buggers really look like you'll just have to go to the show.
