I've been meaning to make some videos of my old sketchbooks for a while now, and I finally did. The quality is surely not the best, but I shot these with my regular digital camera and then the files had to be compressed somewhat to put them online. However, you can still get a pretty good idea of what they look like. My blog format seems to cut off the right side of the video a bit, so if you want you can visit youtube and watch them there:

Stroke .02 Urban Art Fair video

STROKE.02 - Urban Art Fair Munich - May 2010 from INTOXICATED DEMONS GALLERY on Vimeo.

This is a video of the art fair I had some work for sale at in May. I sold one piece (not sure which one yet). If you pause the video at 2:01 (right before picture of the monkey), you will see a drawing of mine. Looks like it was a fun time. It's nice to see all those people turn up for the event :)

Finished a new piece today for a show in the fall. It felt like it took a long time to complete. Tomorrow I will be scanning that along with doing some errands in the afternoon. Maybe I'll even start a new drawing too.

Also, here is a picture of my work hanging at Vino Vixens in Portland. The work has previously been shown in San Francisco and L.A.

Been working on a piece for a fall group show in NY for most of this week. It's been sloooooow work. It seems like my pace has come to a crawl. With the exception of today, I've been feeling extremely uncharacteristically sleepy all week. I've definitely been getting enough sleep, and am not on an upside down sleep schedule, but each day pretty much all day I've felt like I could just put my head right down on my work table and easily drift off. That's not like me. I have been taking this Claritin-D for my allergies which were pretty miserable this week. But that's not supposed to cause drowsiness, the opposite in fact. I didn't take it yesterday or today, and today I am feeling perfectly fine. So I don't know what the deal is. I'm just glad I got some work done today. It was so annoying wanting to work and my body feeling like it couldn't handle that.

Anyway, I've gotten this thing all sketched out now. FINALLY. I struggled a lot with the idea, but the gods of inspiration finally took pity on me.

That's about all for now.

Jumble of ideas

Just finished a piece yesterday for a show in Culver City this fall. It's currently being flattened under a pile of heavy books to reduce the buckling of the paper due to the amount of ink washes I applied. Also, starting to sort out my ideas for the next couple shows coming up this fall. I have a bunch of pieces I need to do this summer. In an attempt to organize my ideas and figure out what is going where, I drew a bunch of thumbnail images of possible pieces, cut them out and tried to put them into groupings for the various shows. This gave me a good visual idea of how things might work out. I'm just visual through and through I guess.

The next piece I will tackle is one for a group show in Soho this fall.

Oh, and I got a piece back from the framers today. Looks great! I'll be shipping that off to CA in the next couple weeks. It was too big for me to frame myself, and I figure this particular show calls for it to look extra professional.

Photos from "Goonies" Opening Reception

Here are some pictures from the Goonies show opening reception last night. I wasn't in attendance, but my friend Ellen in Portland snapped these for me. Looks like they had some nice pieces!

Here's what I contributed. It's a watercolor of Sloth. Simple. Straightforward. And pretty fun to do :)

To see all the work in the show, visit the Lunar Boy website:

Along with AMMO magazine, this arrived in the mail today. It's the second issue of Finerats magazine! Finerats is a lowbrow illustration magazine based in Barecelona. Another beautifully laid out publication with top notch print quality! I was honored to be asked to particpate in this. I recognize some names and artwork too, including Travis Lampe, Jack Teagle and A. Waliszewska. Take a peek!

AMMO Magazine Issue 3

Here are some pictures of the latest issue of AMMO Magazine from the UK. I was really happy to be asked to be part of this. There's some great talent on these pages! And although it's a petite publication, the design of the magazine is excellent and the quality of printing is wonderful. Have a look!

Hats off to creative director David Hughes! You can find out more about AMMO here:

Submit to the Kickstart Co-Op!

Hey everyone!

Just thought I'd tell you all about a new website I am currently featured on called "The Kickstart Co-Op." It's brand new and as one of the first artists to appear on it, I thought I'd spread the word to all you artists out there. If you are featured, not only do you get a little blurb and chance to share your work on the site, but you also get to pick a song you like to be featured with your art. Pretty cool! Sort of lets people get a better idea of you and your influences. So if this sounds interesting to you, submit your work to the site and help get this thing off the ground! I know I'm looking forward to seeing future posts!

The Kickstart Co-Op is run by artist and illustrator John Holcomb. Follow on twitter!
