Did this design at work today.

Client decided they would rather have the Grateful Dead bears on a shirt instead on this....

Sweet sororities.

As a great robot once said...

I'm back baby!

I know it has been a while since updating this, but I have been doing things....

The one and only Mr. Bill Hart walking me down the aisle to meet my doom-I mean husband.

Other than that I have a job now which is great, but eats up all of my time. Drew and I came home to find that after only a week of marriage we had babies! ...well, our fish had babies.

Now back to a normal routine I will make time to get back to doing paintings and drawings. Here is my latest drawing...just a flyer for a show at the gallery:

I'm also trying to fit in the time to really finish hashing out the story for my sci-fi morality mystery. One day it will be done and I can rest.

Until then....

A dear friend of mine just recently had his first child. Him and his wife will make beautiful parents and so I made them a gift to celebrate their new purpose in life. What's better than a drawing of little zombie blabies vomiting rainbows on each other?!

Nothing is.

I also did this for their card.

I did these designs a while ago, but was reminded of them on Friday when the GREAT bands Alert and XenvixionX came to play at Hartbeat. One of Alert's band members was wearing his RTT shirt and I said - Hey! I did that. Super happy with the way these turned out.

New Work


So I know it's been a while since I posted anything. I have been quite busy with HARTBEAT.

Last night Zhenia Golov and Plague Bearers stayed at our house after the show. They were big fans of my illustrations at the gallery and inquired about if I did tattoos. Somehow word got out that I am in possession of a few tattoo machines and I have had some practice on pig ears. This knowledge immediately led to dudes wanting tattoos, regardless of the fact that I have never tattooed another human being. "WE WANT TO BE YOUR FIRST!" they said...well...why not? How often do I get the chance to practice inking people? Let alone people that really are fine with how the outcome turns out.

So here they first tattoos. I am SO happy that my very first was my favorite Futurama character on Zhenia Golov's singer. The second was a free-hand dinosaur on Plague Bearers vocalist.

They aren't perfect, but not too awful I'd say.

Here's some latest work. Sorry it has been a while since my last REAL post. I have been so incredibly busy it's good. Wedding stuff, job, band, STARTING A GALLERY/music venue.

This is the ink work for the first show flyer for HARTBEAT gallery opening July 10th! Crazy no? I'm a biznaz owner.

hot babes

So Mad Minds has asked me for another piece of art. Some hot babeness for their summer tour shirt:

Gen 13/ pin up girl inspired.

We'll see how it turns out in ink.

I have so many new things to show you; most of which are my childhood drawings that inspire such laughter that they must be shared.

Once upon a time I did a bunch of really awful paintings. They mostly looked like this:

That particular peice now looks like this:

And there are 10 more that now resemble this:

This is the third time in my life as an artist where I have taken old paintings and painted right over them. The habit of self loathing started in High School. Soon enough, I'm sure these will have a fresh coat of gesso over them once more.

I will probably keep painting over old work until I get that stroke of genius.

Survival Mode

Don't know yet on title for this guy.

Ten pieces of mine were hung up at Artworks on Main today! I am now, officially, a starving gallery artist! Now if only some of those will sell.

If you live or are around the charlotte area of North Carolina take a trip to Mooresville and see the gallery.

artworks on main

It's a great little space that offers classes for the young and old.

Survival Mode tonight anyone?

For Isaac

Klunk expressed concern so I'll share that yesterday I went to a new still-life museum and I have to say I wasn't moved.

In other news, I found this artist, Paul Caparatta, who creates these works using butterfly wings. There is just something about them that I like. The wings are taken off of fallen butterflies in Africa. Many of these works are sold for charity to support the villages that collect the wings.

Journalistic Malpractice

I wish to not make this blog about anything very important. It is a blog for my art and the occasional pun.

HOWEVER, I am mad. I am not filled with hate as some would say, but I am mad and I have to share a point with you.

I saw Janeane Garofalo on NBC speaking about the tea party protestors. In her words everyone in attendance is a "red-neck, tea-bagging, racist who hates the idea of a black man in the white house." or something just like that. She went on to "reveal the truth" about how the protests were put on by big corporations and fox news. hmm...truth?

I went to the Charlotte protest. I have my reasons.

I wish that all of these people bashing the protests would kindly do what they preach so much about, but never actually practice: open-mindedness. I don't know of ONE protest that was sponsored by Fox news, or a corporation. None of these gatherings were violent or hate-filled. Of course there is anger -IT'S A PROTEST!

Garofalo says I'm a racist and it was a white power rally that I supported. I have to say there were more jews, present company included, and Israel supporters there than at any Klan meeting I've ever been to (which is A LOT).

If she had actually gone to one of these events instead of just reading about it or seeing what the main-steamer media told her about, she would have seen that race was not even a factor. I saw more offensive posters about Nancy Pelosi than Obama. I would say yes, there were more republicans there than democrats, but there were a lot of dems and a lot of independents as well. Plenty of people openly stated they voted for Obama, which is OBVIOUSLY the sign of a racist, but they didn't agree with"leadership"?

The best speaker we had was a representative from the Ayn Rand association. And man, what a bunch of unintellectual, cro-magnons we must be because we actually have read books not on Oprah's book list.

And GEEZ! What a racist country we live in when people gather and cheer on a speaker who is AFRICAN AMERICAN. He was more black than Obama!

This was not about race. This was not about ignorance. This was not about corporations and Foxnews.

This was about people disagreeing with the direction this country has been heading...and most people agree it STARTED WITH THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION.

So yeah I guess we're all a bunch of racists who love Bush and have farmer tans and hate the environment.

If you're allowed to protest, I'm allowed to protest.


A new guy. Work in progress.

Thursday, April 16, 2009


Hey! So I've been graduated for a few weeks now and it feels pretty, pretty, pretty good.

I am now being represented by the gallery Artworks On Main in Mooresville, NC, and I should have some work hung up before the end of next week. Exciting!

Hopefully I'll have some sort of job soon.

Here is some new work and work in progress:

This is a new piece for the gallery.

BURN fest! New music fest poster I'm working on in SC in June.

in the words of a great man:


well. It's finished. Magna Cum Laude. I am out of Savannah and trying to unpack the immense amount of junk I have accumulated in my 22 years in my new home in North Carolina. I have a list of things to do before summer is out:

Send out sample cards
Have a gallery show/sell off old work
get knowledge shirts printed

want to buy some work? or a print?

I have decided to start adding fun designy/illustratory things to this blog besides my own art. I think it is important to draw inspiration from the design world and be interested in the works of contemporary artists and artists passed.

Here are some beautiful 1997 stamps I found in an antique store in Savannah a few years ago. They include great composers and conductors like George Szell...and some not so great *cough*cough* Stokowski *cough*. The painting is beautiful, but I mean come on! Stokowski's 1939 Fantasia version of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" (one of my favorite pieces of music)is one of the worst directed versions of anything. EVER.

BUT look! Pretty stamps!
