The above image is one of several new prints that will be availlable on my website within the next two days.  Other prints will include the two paintings I’ve posted recently here on the blog.  I’ll also be refashioning my website and updating it with new work, so keep in touch!  and don’t forget to come out to Chinatown on Sat if you’re a LA peep!

Just got another chance to push the limits and create something that was really interesting to make.  This is for upcoming show currated by Jonathan Belli on April 24th and 25th here in LA, in Chinatown.  Should be a really fun show with some great artists including Erin Althea and Daniel Gibson.  Press release for that is HERE. Hope to see you there!

Also, here’s a two page illustration/spread I did last month for the super great Sarah Garcea at INC magazine.  It just hid the stands so I’m now able to stick this up here.  I should also mention Sarah was a really great to work with!  Super nice and cool!

first time i’ve had time to paint anything crazy in a while.  the babies have taken up my time for personal work over the last few months, but this Exquisite Corpse piece for Chronical Books gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that.  There are a bunch of really amazing artist participating in this, and I’m honorred to be a part of it.  Thanks to Julia Rothman for putting it together!
