lil' pubs!


This first image was taken at the December Unblurred at Modern Formations, blogged on 'NakYouOut'! These were my submissions for the juried 'Winter in Frames' show. The author of the article had nice things to say about my work. Click this link to see the article, scroll on dahn.


A couple weeks ago, I received a phone call from the Northside Chronicle about featuring my artwork in the December issue, along with a nice mini interview, short, to the point, and supporting my side of the city! Click this link to see the full article!

foxes


My friend Bethany wants a tattoo of a fox, so I drew up a couple of foxes! The one with the roses was the drawing that FINALLY got me to learn how to draw tattoo roses. It's been 2 years of trying to draw those stupid things and I can finally do it. Success!

My First Solo Show!







Last night was such an amazing turn out! I couldn't have asked for a better first solo show opening! There was a great turn out, Sock Market and Elliott Sussman performed wonderfully! I sold some earrings, zines and buttons and got to share stories with others that appreciate my art and give kids balloons! Very, very nice. Thanks to all who came, performed, and made the night run smoothly, and especially the Mr. Roboto Project for hosting my art and this event during Unblurred. My art will be up all month! Go check it out!

TOMORROW!

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY! TONIGHT I SET UP! I'm so excited! Here's a last couple of paintings that should be up at my show tomorrow evening and thru the month of December at the Mr. Roboto Project! I think total I have almost 40 paintings to put up, whether they'll all get to go up, i'll find out tonight. I also have 2 paintings that will be up in Modern Formations for the month, just down the street from Roboto. It is a juried show, so if you like my stuffs, go vote for it so I can be apart of another show this summer! I'll post photos of the opening next!

'Winter in Frames' Submission!






These are my 12"x12" submissions for Modern Formations Gallery's December juried show. A little experimental on my part, I don't know if this is what I officially want to submit, but I still like them, and they're new, so why not. The opening will be Friday, December 2nd, same as my solo show and just a few blocks away. So pick up some grub at Spak's and stroll around penn ave looking at some sweet arts.

Handmade Arcade (for the Holidays) 2011!




What an awesome experience! Thank you so much to all the friends, family and hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people who came out to support so many wonderful local artists and crafters! I'm still in awe of all the people that now own 'Jes Ha Ka' pieces, their lovely compliments, inquiries and children that love Adventure Time as much as I do! I hope I have the opportunity to do it next year and will be preparing for it more in advance than I did this year.

After the insanely long day, we celebrated by picking up some SPAK brothers seitan hoagies and FUNK NIGHT at Belevedere's, featuring sick jams, winter woodchucks and pool sharking. GREAT DAY. <3

November News





Good news! I have my first solo show awaiting! Friday, December 2nd during Penn Ave's Unblurred monthly gallery crawl at the Mr. Roboto Project! I got to put in a couple cents on what musicians I might like and got the wonderful Elliott Sussman to play! It's going to be nice and light and good, save the date! Here's the facebook event link!

The cookie key chains and 'paper weights' were the last things I painted for the arcade! I set up everything last night then packaged it up! I'm really excited for Saturday!

Happy Halloweens!

We were the Bigheads (from Rocko's Modern Life) for Halloween! These really sucked to make, especially amidst the crazy arcade prep, but they really turned out great!
