Laura and I decided to submit to this year’s Sketchbook Project in which participants’ book’s go on tour & get added to The Brooklyn Art Library’s sketchbook collection. We just finished it up and mailed out the book this past week. We were only two-thirds done before the weekend and worked like mad to finish it up. I ended up using paint a lot which I rarely do in my own sketchbooks. However, now that I’ve gotten a taste for quick painting and realized how easy it can, be I think I’ll be doing more of it.
New pieces I’ve been sitting on for a couple weeks. My wife’s old neighbor commissioned me to create this as a surprise holiday present for his friend. Well the squid’s out of the bag now (I’m told “She loved it.”), so now I’m free to share it with everyone.
His main request was to somehow incorporate squids or robots or both. Once I developed the giant robot concept and I had a whole city as bacdrop, I asked for more things his friend liked so i could sneak them into the scenery. Can you spot them all?
If you’re interested in commissioning me for a original piece, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Apparently it makes a great gift.
Happy holidays everyone! I hope you like it too.
Man I’ve been quiet on my my blog lately. Maybe because I got my Google+ profile working again. It’s also because I’ve been uber busy with freelance projects (that I can’t share on here just yet…) as well as making things. Making things for what? Making things for the Bust Craftacular of course!
That’s right, Laura and I have been hard at work making crafty things ans doodads and whatchamacallits to share with the unwashed masses at Bust Magazine’s massive holiday market. All day next Saturday, we’ll be there under the banner of Eye Heart Us, which what we call ourselves when we sell our arty wares together. Actually, you don’t even have to wait ’til the fair you can order some of our new items right now on the web shop.
But if you intend on doing serious holiday shopping without getting UPS or Paypal involved here are the deets:
Saturday Dec. 10 (the even it Saturday & Sunday, but we’re only there the 1st day)
11am – 7pm
82 Mercer St.,
New York, NY 10012 (map)
Hazaa! The moment has finally arrived when I can share my contribution to Udon Entertainment’s Megaman Tribute book. So basically for this piece I thought it would be fun to see what ol’ Rock Man would do with different bosses’s head. I mean they all have these silly heads that resemble household objects anyway.
The Book is premiering at the San Diego Comic-con at the UDON booth (#5037), July 20-24. Or if yo can’t make it to Comic-con this year, like me :’(, then you can pre-order the hardcover or softcover version online. How novel, you can order things you desire from the internet for postal delivery to your door so that you may possess them!
What’s that you say, you wat to see a printed version of my piece but nothing else in the book? First off, what’s wrong with you, there are soem many talented artist in the book it will make you circuits melt. Secondly, I have a solution for you, prints of the piece are now available in the Eye Heart Us store.
Did anyone else ever wear a blue sweatshirt and pull the sleeve over your left arm to pretend you were Mega? Just wondering…
It’s the Buckyballs book, and it’s chock full of my drawings.
I also drew the monkey emulating Shakespeare fro their promo video. CLACK CLACK CLACK!
Happy Freee Comics Day!!! To celebrate I’m letting everyoen and everyone download a free copy of Space box Issue #1. It follows a newly minted Space Box crew on their first and possibly most glorious mission. Enjoy.

Here’s a commissioned piece I finished recently for an independent exhibit and environmental planner, Tim Burnham. The artwork is part of a series of promotional postcards featuring illustrated versions of sayings that apply to his business. In this case it’s about being patient and accepting the fact that you can’t force something to happen that’s pretty much impossible.
I’m pleased to say that one of my pieces was selected to appear in Udon Entertainment’s Mega Man Tribute book coming out this July. This isn’t the pice that made, I’m not allowed ot share that until the book’s release. However, I think I’ll post a teaser of that image later this week. So stay tuned…
