Hide the kids...

Here is a little sneak peek of my piece for the upcoming "Expletive" Show at Light Grey Art Lab. I don't normally work just straight up typography, but this was kind of fun to work on. Plus I got to throw all kinds of symbolism and stuff in it. Show opens September 14th. It should be pretty awesome, but you might want to leave the kids and grandmas at home.

Night of the Exquisite Corpse wrap up...

Hello! The Night of the Exquisite Corpse show couldn't have gone more amazing. I am so pleased with the toy Chris and I designed. I am so happy with all the incredible artwork we recieved back from the other artists. I am so impressed with how the space looked all set up. The digital version of the show the Chris designed at www.zombioso.com/papercorpse/ is incredible. Lastly the turnout was fantastic, so thank you to all those who joined us opening night. The show will be up for a few more weeks at Light Grey Art Lab and toys are purchasable now in the shop. Get yours today before they return back to the grave!!

The live Digital Corpse.

What a great turnout!!

Me and my little zombie "Fumble". Check out more great pics from the show here.

Man oh man it is soooooo close! The "Night of the Exquisite Corpse" show is just around the corner! I am so very excited to A). See it all come together in a paper wonderland of undead chaos and B). Stop spending every waking moment of my life assembling paper toys...at least for a little while. Check out these sweet sneak peek pics of some of the work in the show. (Hint: One of those is mine! Woo!) Hope to see you all there. August 17th from 7-10 at Light Grey Art Lab. NOTEC_Sneak_sm NOTEC_Sneak2_sm

Night of the Exquisite Corpse sneaky...

So we are slowly getting ready to barrage the interwebs with promo stuff for the upcoming "Night of the Exquisite Corpse" Paper Toy Exhibit coming up August 17th at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, MN. Some of the amazing artists have been showing a sneak peak here and there of their contributions so here is a little glimpse of my guy. Seeing it flat doesn't quite do it justice. As cool as the art looks on the templates, they look even more amazing when built! More info to come and I hope I see anyone who's able to get there at the show!!


 A lot of these sketches are dedicated to a really horrible shave I received...

 That's supposed to be toast..but it looks like floating pie. Either way delicious.

 Practicing with pencil colors.

 Another failed attempt to draw flowers. Someday flowers...someday... Also a doodle from my buddy Luis Diaz (a.k.a. Mud!)

Night of the Exquisite Corspe going strong!...

Hello everyone! The Night of the Exquisite Corspe show is coming along beautifully. I'm smack dab in the middle of assembling all of the amazing toys we've recieved so far(hence the lack of updates) and couldn't be more jazzed on how it's all coming together. We just got back our promo cards featuring the work of Michael Hacker, Manuel Kilger and Tougui. The show is opening August 17th! I hope to see as many of you there as possible. More updates as I get them. NotEC_Promo_sm

Hey! Where are all the posts?!...

I've been very consumed lately with a show I'm working on with my buddy Chris Schons for August! It's been a lot of work so far and it will be a lot more! I am incredibly excited about and can't wait to get the artists working on it. Check out the "Call for Artists" link on the Light Grey Art Lab blog. If I was more responsible I would have put this link up here waaayyyy earlier.

Pokemon Battle Royale!!...

PBR Show Pic
Wow!! The Pokemon Battle Royale Show was epic!! The gallery at Light Grey Art Lab was PACKED from 7 to 10. It was a fantastic turn out. Thank you to everyone who attended and put up with the crowds to see all of the truly incredible artwork. A shout out to some of my personal favs...on second thought I started typing them out but there were too many. Check them all out online. A ton of prints sold out at the show but for those of you who weren't able to attend, there are still some prints available online including my Charizard here.

I Choose y...Oh My GAWD!!!...

Hey everyone. I originally wasn't going to post this until the Pokemon Battle Royale show, but a lot of the other contributors were revealing their works and I got all excited to show mine ahead of time. Ha.
I was excited to get to do Charizard. Just this giant, bad ass fire breathing dragon thing that would never lose a fight. Then from what I saw of the cartoon they made his personality out to be this cocky asshole who would burn the crap out of Ash every chance he got. I tried to capture a little bit of that personality in this piece. I also loved playing around with the color on this one with the mixes of purples and greens instead of just making it orange. I hope you fans out there feel I did Charizard justice in this rendering and if you get the chance come to the show. It's going to be a huge amount of nerdy fun.

Keeping Organization Fun...

WHA?!?! I haven't posted in too long. I've been working on some arts that should be up super duper soon. In the mean time here's a goofy little thing. At work I have these huge binders of art that I have to keep organized by season/set date. I needed to make a label for my most recent set so here it is...in the theme of Metroid.

Weekend Monster! 08...fail...

Well I don't always draw perfect the first time! So here was where WM! 08 was going, but it sort of crashed and burned at this point. I just didn't like the pose, color, ink work...pretty much everything. I still like the concept but I think I need to go another direction with it. This is not the final WM! 08 but I will post the failed first attempt. Hopefully the second attempt is super awesome.
The truck looks bad too. Ha.

I Choose You!...

I am super excited for the upcoming Pokemon Battle Royal show hosted by my amazing friends at Light Grey Art Lab. I was lucky enough to nab the baddest of bad dude Pokemon Charizard! I'll admit it's gonna tough to capture just the right pose and emotion for such a beast, but I'm up to the challenge. After many attempts I'm finally on the right path. Below is a little sneak peek (and the only image I'll show until the show).

Weekend Monster! 07...

FINALLY DONE!! For whatever reason number seven took me forever. I think partly because I had a really different vision in my head, but then as I was making it, it changed significantly. The car, a Rolls Royce Phantom, was super boring to draw as well. It is done and now posted so enjoy!

Sketches...with markers...

More sketchbook. I was playing around with some Copic markers, brush and ink, and gouache.
Lots of bleeding occurred.

Here's a handful of sketches!
Concepts for a button show.
Inspired by a piece my buddy Melitia did.
Captain America B-Boy paper toy concept.
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit has been showing up in my sketchbook a lot lately.

Hardest working ninja...

Weekend Monster! 07...update

This one is taking me a little longer than I want...but, that's just the way it goes sometime. Plus I started a new excercise program that takes up all my time and energy. Still shooting for 52/52 total.
Here's a progress shot...


Haven't uploaded any sketchbook pages in a while. Here's a couple new ones.

There are some concept sketches for a new paper toy I'm working on here. Should be pretty awesome when I'm done.

Weekend Monster! 07...sketch...

I've got some progress on this one but it ain't done...so here's the rough illustrator sketch. Should be up soon and pretty awesome too.

Weekend Monster! 06...

Okay I'll admit the car is a little weak on this one. It's supposed to be a Hemi Cuda...but it's late and I need to get it posted. I spent too much time sleeping and doing laundry this weekend. Blurgh...


I can't tell if I'm getting better at drawing cars. Ha ha.

Weekend Monster! 05...

Weekend Monster! is back (although I'm battling an awesome cold right now) and this weeks Weekend Monster! is dedicated to a certain birthday boy who's birthday was in December. The monster is of course Chris (as teenwolf) and the car is his little go-kart Honda Fit. I drove it the other night and I was impressed that it had so much juice under the hood.
Happy Birthday Oldmanwolfdude!
