"Final Voyage of the Elders" sneak peek

Hey all,

Well, I have finally completed all three of the drawings I will be showing at Causey Contemporary this summer in Brooklyn, NY. I know, three drawings doesn't sound like a whole lot, or not enough to make completing them all sound like a huge accomplishment, but it took a long time. I think it was because I kept getting sidetracked with other shows and freelance assignments that popped up. They are all 18" x 24", and if you're familiar with my work, you know that's pretty big for me. Well, pretty labor intensive anyway with all the detail work I tend to do. I spent this morning finishing up the third and final drawing, and then the rest of the day scanning the works. That was quite a job in itself. I need to get frames and stuff real soon because I will be taking some trips this summer and need to ship stuff early because of that. I have 4 drawings I need to do in the next 3 weeks. That sounds completely doable seeing it written here, but again, it's detailed stuff that will be time consuming. But I gotta do it, so failure is not an option.

here's a small preview of a section of the drawing I just completed. I can't wait to show you all the finished works. That'll happen in about a month, so stay tuned.

A "mystical" print!

Just a reminder that "Some Sort of Mystical Explanation" is now available as a print in my Society6 store. I'm taking the time to write about this one in particular because I've had a fair amount of people request it. It's an older piece but I think it's a pretty important one in that it was sort of a turning point in this particular style and body of work.

"Procession of Hunters and Scavengers" sneak peek

Here is a sneak peek of my most recently completed drawing for the "Rituals" group show at Causey Contemporary this summer in Brooklyn, NY. Working on the third and final drawing for the show right now. Enjoy :)
My hand is in there to show scale. This is just a tiny detail of the drawing, which measures 18" x 24".

Late spring update

Just wanted to give a little update as to what has been going on lately. Let's see, well I just finished two editorial illustrations this week for a literary journal called Annalemma. It's a nicely put-together biannual based in California. I'm excited to see how it turns out because there are some great illustrators in this upcoming issue and I'm anxious to see what they did for it.

The G40 art summit event is going on right now. It started thursday. I'm participating in it through an invite via Art Whino. I've got 11 pieces in the show, mostly small older works.

I'm also currently in a show at Sacred Machine Gallery called "Beyond the Sacred". That will run until July 31st. It includes the usual roster of great artists that participate in the shows there. So if you live in Tucson you should stop by.

I still have one 18" x 24" drawing to do for the "Rituals" show that is happening this summer in NYC through my art collective. It will be at Causey Contemporary Gallery in Brooklyn in mid-July. I've done 2 out of 3 of the drawings, and I have to admit they've taken a bit longer to do than expected. That's probably because I ended up making them more detailed than I planned. Eh....what else is new? So I should try to finish that up in this next week if I can.

After that, I have some personal commissions to do and some collaborative projects.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that there is an album coming out at the end of next month that I did the cover art for. It's coming out on vinyl. The band is Harm's Way and the album is called "Isolation". I'll definitely post pictures when I get my hands on it.

That's all for now folks :)

above are the 2 works going to Articulated Gallery in San Francisco.
