2 shirts left!

Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd throw this out there. I have two of these shirts left for purchase. I created the design for this shirt back in 2009 for the band Unholy. They were made in limited quantity and I was given some. I have these two extra. One is an XL and one is a medium. They're 100% cotton and screenprinted. Pretty durable too, not a super lightweight kind of t-shirt. I'm selling these each for $15 flat.

If you want one, please email me:

The name of the band is on the back.

Flatcolor Gallery November show - opening reception pics

I was not able to attend the opening of this show I participated in at Flatcolor gallery, but here are some pictures taken by the gallery.

The show ends November 28th.

They're back

About a year ago, I sent all this artwork over to Scotland for a show. Now it's all back here again and available to purchase. You can see better photos on my flickr page.

email me if you're interested :)

Trying to get back on track

Lately things have been kind of scattered and a bit obstacle-laden. That's the best way to describe it I think. Had a multitude of computer problems lately, with hard drive, reinstalling software, drivers, more software. Ugh. It wasn't pretty.

Also had that whole fiasco with a gallery overseas, foreign customs nightmare, language barriers, BAD communication or lack thereof etc etc. That is pretty much over with now though I hope. I bailed on the exhibition. Probably for the better.

Also had some freelance projects fall through, along and some very drawn-out problems with getting paid for a job I did. It's all part of being an artist I know, but all the mishaps have been very concentrated lately. Hoping it will ease up soon and I will get good news of some kind :)

And then of course the holidays are upon us faster than we can turn around. It's crazy.

That's all for now.

Not the norm

This is definitely out of the ordinary for me, but I recently did a watercolor landscape. It was a birthday gift for my grandmother. I used to do more naturalistic watercolor paintings in middle school and high school when I was first getting used to the medium. Now I use it in a totally different way. I was kind of out of practice with this type of work, having not done a watercolor landscape in probably over 10 years. All considering, it came out better than I imagined it would. My grandmother likes it anyway, and that's all that matters really since it is for her.
The scene depicted is imaginary. I used two different photos I took as partial reference, but it's a loose reference. The one photo I took in Vermont, and the other I took in Oregon, totally different sides of the country, funny enough.

Technical difficulties

Yesterday I spent most of the day at the Apple store genius bar. I was at their mercy. My computer decided to start acting like it was having a psychotic episode and I needed to take it in to get looked at. I can't say what the diagnosis was, but they ended up wiping the hard drive clean. UGH. What a PAIN. Not the first time this has happened, so I knew what I was in for. It seems to be working okay now.....spent all of today trying to reinstall everything and get back to some sense of normalcy. Stupid technology.....

Zine from Belgium

I recently traded zines with Martha Verschaffel from Belgium. It's called "Alma Mater" and it's a beautiful little publication that I'm happy to add it to my growing collection of zines.
