Going to be showing a collection of past work at the Firm, down in Georgetown next Saturday. If you're coming down to the neighborhood for the Art Attack, stop on by, have a drink, and dork out on some art.
I'll also have some prints on hand as well. I'm not fully stocked, but I'll bring what I have. If there's a print you saw at a con, or on the blog, give me a heads up. If I get enough requests for a certain image, even if it hasn't been a print yet, I'll do my best to get those made up before the show. Just hit me up here firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: PRINTS!
On a personal note,
I was reading the old post from that Oz show, and there's a long rant (like this one) where I go on about Seattle's not so thriving art scene (at the time), compared to other cities, and why more people don't put on more art events. Maybe that was my own naive point of view at the time, but that's what it felt like. Well, five years later, I can honestly say, that this is not the case anymore. Not only are there more art walks to shake a stick at these days, in multiple neighborhoods, but everyone around me, myself included, have taken the initiative, and put on some great art events. You know that to be true if you've been to any of the Art Jams we put on in Georgetown, for example. Anyway, if someone says there isn't an art scene in Seattle, there not looking in the right places. If you still think there isn't a scene, make your own.
I just decided not to dig up an old bio for this show, or write a new one. I just wrote it.
Hope to see you there!
p.s. come back to this blog in 5 years for another long rant! Stay thirsty my friends.

Here are a few more pieces from the Weirdsville show. Since these latest pieces deal with car culture, I wanted to do some interpretations of my own style of hood ornaments. Would love to do more of these when time permits.
-Title: "Pixy Hood Ornament"

Three more pieces to post from the show. Stay tuned........

Here's a sneak peek at what to expect at Tasty's Weirdsville show this Friday night. If you don't recognize the characters "The Guesome Twosome", they're from an old Saturday morning cartoon called Wacky Races. The car designs were out there, and as much a character as the drivers. Here's the original cartoon intro, and here's an example of life imitating art. If you come out Friday, you can see six more new pieces, as well as prints of this piece. Stay tuned....
-Title: Revenge of Creepy Coupe
-Size 16" x 16"

Recently did this skate deck for G1988's, upcoming Wet Hot American Summer group show. If you're in LA next Friday, definitely check it out. Also, check out Funny or Die for some previews from the show.
Speaking of upcoming art shows, I'll have some new pieces to show at local art boutique, Tasty, for Greenwood's 2nd Friday art walk, on the 10th of this month. Check back into the blog this week for some sneak peeks on the new pieces. While everyone is finally enjoying the Seattle sunshine, I'll be indoors painting.
Whaaaa! Art can be a cruel mistress, but at least I can paint in my drawers.
