Just passing the time...

I don't really have much time on my hands right now, getting ready for upcoming shows and all... but, I stumbled across this on the old interwebs, and thought I'd share.

So it appears that an artist called Barth borrowed an idea from me... which is no big deal, it happens all the time...but, damn...he could have at least tipped his hat to me a little on his blog by mentioning my name. Oh well, C'est la vie. Here's a little side by side comparison. (His is the cooler looking one, on the left... note: mine was done many years ago, and I have learned a lot since then...)

Oh... I'd also say it would be nice if he mentioned Ashley Wood, and Jim Mahfood too... since it looks like he was more than a little inspired by their work, also.

OK. I'm done now... back to work!

EGO's British Invasion...

EGO has some exciting stuff coming up in the new year and could use your help. His first ever overseas art show is coming up next month in England and he'd like to infect a whole new continent by arriving with his creepy creatures and oddities. It isn't a cheap plane seat though, so we've come up with a way you can help. We printed a super limited run (40) of an exclusive 11 x 14, 2 color, hand screened print which will be available for a $40 "Send me to England" donation.

If you have always wanted your own EGO art but didn't have hundreds of dollars for an original painting, this is a great chance to get a one of a kind piece, at a super affordable price. There are only 40 and when they are gone they're gone, so act fast! Thanks, and we love you.

Extra special thanks to Brennan Coyle at Perch Graphics, and Sara Russert.

Hey! Remember me?

Sorry I haven't checked in for a while... you know- the Holidays, and all...

Anyway...moving right along...
I just wanted to check in to let everyone know that I'm alive and well, and working on some new artsy stuff for 2011. I am planning to show less this year, in an effort to not spread myself so thin, and hopefully, in doing so, improve the quality of work I'm putting out into the world.
The first couple of shows of the new year are next month (February).
One in Portland, Oregon, at the Fifty/24PDX gallery at the Upper Playground store
(23 NW 5th Ave
Neighborhood: Old Town.)
A group show called "Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl" featuring the art of Kinoko, Sohaila Adela, Solace, and me.

The other February show is at Weekend Gallery in Hastings, U.K.
(86 High Street
East Susse
Also a group show, and my first time showing outside the U.S. (See blog entry above to see how you can help...).

I'll be providing more info on these, and other upcoming shows, as it becomes available.

The pic posted above is the last finished painting I created in 2010. It was a commissioned piece for Jeff Houston, of Under the Needle Tattoo in Seattle.

Titled-"Self Defense..." 11x14 Acrylic on Masonite.

As always...Thanks for stopping by, and/or giving a shit about what I do.
