A big thank you to all the wonderful people who came out to my opening this past friday.  I want to remind you that the works are still up and will be through March.  You can visit the Art Boutiki during business hours (Mon-Friday 10am-6pm,  Sat 12-5pm)

I have received many requests from those who were unable to make it, so I will now have a closing reception for the show on March 21st from 7-10pm.  This will coincide with Picture Atlantic premiering their new music video followed by an accoustic performance.

For you, Because YOU are awesome

I’m not big on Valentines Day, I feel it’s quite disingenuous….however, I am a sucker for love and damn if life isn’t already hard enough on all of us. So, (while watching the Olympics) I decided to make something quick in Illustrator just for the day. For you, the dejected, those in love, those recovering from Love and those who are too busy to even notice. It’s a much larger than usual image so use as a nice background on you computer.  Have a great day, I’m ramping up for my next solo show, If you’re in the southbay I hope you can make it….See last post for details.

Despondency

My next show is a solo show held at The Art Boutiki . Despondency will be a collection of works made since May, I’m still working on a few new pieces I hope to unveil at this show as well. There will be some exclusive prints available for the opening night. The show starts Friday Feb 28th. There will be an opening reception running from 7-10pm. I’ll be there of course,  not 100% sure yet if I’ll be drawing live commissions that night or not.  I’d love to see you lovely people there 🙂

Hanging out with dead people

Today was like the usual, building websites and fixing problems related to the sites. However I needed to give my eyes and mind a rest, instead of heading up to the city as planned I decided to hang out at the cemetery and take some shots for some planned paintings and a comic. Enjoy the photos

Happy 2014

Suffice to say 2013 I will not miss.  So now onto 2014, I really hope that this year will bring us nothing but the greatest 🙂 I do not wish to be too personal so I’ll leave it at that.  Art wise, I am working on pieces I will have show at Slave Labor Graphics in February. More details will come soon enough. Until then, peace be with you.
