"Facing Fear" @ Launch Pad

This show opens on the 5th at Launch Pad Gallery in Portland, OR. I have one piece in the show. It's not a new piece, but it fits the theme I think.

The Undead

Here's a new piece I did for "Horrorwood" currently on display at WWA gallery in Culver City, CA. The idea was to pay homage to horror movies. My piece is a combination of a few ("The Bat" and "Nosferatu").

Postal hell update

Still dealing with postal hell here. To recap, the piece I sent to a gallery in Barcelona is still stuck in customs. This is the second attempt to send something to this gallery. It's really not the fault of the gallery, but of customs. It was supposed to be guaranteed delivery by Oct 4, but it has been stuck in Spanish customs since Oct 2. Obviously, now it is way past the date of delivery, and I'm annoyed because I spent extra money to send it express mail with confirmation and tracking etc. (something I did not do on the first attempt). Why the hell should I pay for that if the exact same thing is going to happen the second time?? I've been in communication with USPS and they claim to be "investigating" the problem and will get back to me. I am doubtful. I called them again today to see how it is going, and they said there have been no new developments. Great. I am supposed to call them in a few days if I don't hear anything. The first piece I sent to the gallery came back to me after being rejected at customs. It went on a month long trip back to me and arrived battered and bruised. The artwork was only slightly damaged. The date of the gallery show looms nearer and I'm running out of patience.

The Capture of the Beast (sold)

I'm still fond of this piece I did a few years ago. It's one of the few of my works that has no background that I still really like. Now it's going to a good home.

My work at Sacred Gallery

Baltimore Magazine October Issue

Today I got my copy of Baltimore Magazine in the mail. I contributed an illustration for this October issue. The purpose of the article was to show readers how to throw a Halloween party with products they can buy around the city or online.

Also, wanted to post a picture of my friend Donald Ely's illustration for the magazine too. I think this is a first for us being published in the same issue (where we got paid). Hopefully it will happen a lot more in the future. I think we'd both like that :)

Juxtapoz ad

I went to Borders the other day and was flipping through the latest issue of Juxtapoz and saw this ad for a show I am in. Pretty neat to see it in there. Hope lots of people show up for the opening!
