     Just in case you haven't seen it yet, I am currently posting itms for sale on an etsy account. My shop is called and it will hold drawings, paintings and screenprints as well as whatever else I can put together. As of right now there are only three postings available, but more are on the way. The first prints to be offered on the shop will be a print based on drawings of a dented paint can, a silhouette of a hummingbird, and a portrait of John Lennon which I am curently working on. My screenprints are all single color prints done without the aid of a press or photographic emulsion development. for that reason they are hard to produce but generally come out very well. No two shirts wind up being exactly alike. All graphics are printed on American Apparel shirts. If anyone has any requests, please let me know. 
     Current ideas for other new prints are advertisments for absurd, non-existent goods & services such as collapsable windmills, sumi-e brushed patterns, and general propaganda from Central Services. 
     In closing I have not added anything to this site in a while due to an illness I developed in early december and have only recently gotten over. More postings and pictures of progress later on...

Mechanical Cloud

Sometimes the best way to jumpstart yourself is to simply let a doodle keep going until it congeals into something new. This is "Mechanical Cloud" (11X14, micron pen on paper). I find myself doing these more and more lately. It's a little tough getting these shots on here, because i don't have a scanner so they have to be photographed and then uploaded.

Zen Dudes Poster/ Roger Corman Revivalist

This is probably the first useful implementation of photoshop/illustrator for me in a while. It's amazing how much more you learn when there is a point towhat you are doing. The sea monster is taken from a Roger Corman poster for a movie called 'Creature from the Haunted Sea.' The fonts I found on, and I got a bunch of brushes from bittbox. I forgot Conors last name so I improvised 'with the drums' and gave everyone else an alias to make it even.

I have a lot of shots from Nantucket, MA, but these two are my favorites.

Damian Hirsch

The colorful divisions on the face are the result of Photoshop experimentation. Damian Hirsch is the artist who actually made this object. It's called 'For the Love of God' and its made of platinum and encrusted completely with diamonds. My design here is called 'Damian Hirsch.'

Self Portrait, October 08

This is what my skull looks like.


This drawing is the base for my new painting. i'm kind of coming from the other side in terms of creative approach in comparison to Monster(October), which was completely improvised. So far I'm using only titanium white and black india ink.
