Two new prints currently showing at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. This group show is all about famous groups, gangs and cohorts. And what better pop group is there than the ninjas in green and their fearsome foes!?
Both of these are 6 color, hand pulled screen prints. They are 19" x 24" and come in editions of 40.
Show runs for about a month. For more info and to purchase a print please visit bottleneckgallery.com
Here are my two pieces for the upcoming old school video game themed art show at gallery1988 (Venice). The show opens Friday October 26th and runs for about a month.
The first is a four panel acrylic painting on wood. Each panel is 12" x 12". I actually did this piece a couple years ago with the hope that someday it would be a part of g1988's I am 8-bit shows. I'm glad I could finally dust it off and get it out of my basement.
The second piece is a print I just finished up on to go with my koopa toopa series. Its a three color, hand pulled screen print measuring 19" x 12". Both will be on sale through g1988's website at nineteeneightyeight.com
New print for Bottleneck Gallery's "Cant' Beat Em, Join Em" zombie themed show which opens tonight and runs through October 28th. Bottleneck is a great new gallery in brooklyn that donates a chunk of every show's earnings to a different charity. I'm happy to be a part of this months show which is working to help support The American Red Cross.
This is a four color print measuring about 10" x 15" and is inspired by the movie Zombie Land. Its in an edition of 35. For more info on the show please visit: www.bottleneckgallery.com
Also, next week Countdown to (En)Danger opens in Philadelphia's own B2. ALL proceeds from this show go to benefit the World Wild Life Fund. Show open on Saturday October 13th at 6pm and runs for about a month. The show was put together by Ryann Casey and Josh Robeson and if its anything like their previous charity shows, this should be a lot of fun. For more info please visit: worldwildlife.org or Facebook.com/worldwildlife
Had a lot of fun working on this print. Its four colors and is about 12" x 19". And again, all proceeds from this show go to the WWF.
A pair of pieces to show to you today. First up is a print I did for Gallery 27's current show, "This Will Increase Your X" The theme is a clever spin on the usual pop/video game theme with pieces inspired by video game power up! My print is based on the blue shells of death from the MarioKart series.
It's the 3 color print and is about 11"x15.5" in size. The show opened last Friday and will be up for about a month. Visit gallery27chicago.com for more info.
Next print is for the upcoming Crazy 4 Cult show in NYC. That's right, gallery 1988 has taken their show on the road and brought their signature event to the east coast. Opening reception is August 9th from 6-9pm at 64 Gansevoort St, NY, NY 10014. Show runs for about a month. My piece is inspired by "Little Shop of Horrors" and the various store posters that were in the window of Mushnik's throughout the movie. For more info visit nineteeneightyeight.com
Here is my piece for Gallery27's (of Chicago) currant show "The American Hero". And really, who's more American than Steven Colbert?! The show runs for about a month and features all kind of heroes both real and fictional.
This piece is a four color, hand pulled screen print and is an edition of 40.
Please nation, help give this piece (and show, and gallery) the Colbert bump.
A little late to the party as the show opened last Friday (sorry, combination of vacation and laziness). Here is my piece for Gallery1988's show "There is Always Money in the Banana Stand". I (and it seems many others) have a special appreciation for David Cross and his Tobias Fünke character. I wanted to recreate his head shot from the series and show off the characters acting range.
The show is up for a month. Bad news- gallery1988 is already sold out of the unframed prints I sent them. Good news- I have more! They'll be on my etsy page after the show comes down. Enjoy!
Here's my print for Gallery 1988's upcoming tribute show to Steve Martin. It's a three color, hand pulled screen print. It measures about 10.25" x 16" and has an edition of 35.
This was a lot of fun to work on. Not only is Mr. Martin one of my favorite actors but Parenthood is one of my favorite movies from my childhood. Although after re-watching it I can safely say that I didn't understand half the movie or the jokes when I was a kid. Especially grandmas innuendoes. Anyway, hopefully people get the reference as I know its not one of his most well known films.
The show opens Friday, June 9th and runs for about a month at Gallery 1988, Venice.
Here is my contribution to the upcoming g1988 show "Memes, a tribute to the internet's favorite creations". The show opens this friday at 7020 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90038. Its one of the more ridiculous show ideas in a while and I'm glad I could be a part of it. Its also g1988's 8th anniversary so its sure to be a good time. I had a lot of fun with this project. This handsome Raptor Jesus is a 4 color hand pulled screen print. Show runs for about a month and remember to hide your sin, he's learned to open doors.
This is my piece for the upcoming group show Empty Night Skies. Its is benefit for Bat Conservation International. All proceeds go to help com-bat (hehe) the spread of White Nose Syndrome in bats. Opening reception is friday, April 20th from 7-10pm at Grindcore Coffee House (1515 S. 4th St. Philadelphia, PA). Lots of great artists are involved. Here is the Facebook event for more info.
Here's the recent gig poster i did for the band lotus. Apparently, they often play a rendition of the Zelda theme song at the end of their shows. So naturally they asked me to do a Zelda themed gig poster. This project had three notable milestones for me. Firstly, it's the biggest print I've ever made. Secondly, its the most printing I've ever done for a single project (200 prints x 3 colors, YIKES)! And lastly, every aspect of this project was done in house (as in, IN my house). I built an exposure unit, bought a power washer and built myself a dark room in my basement. Surprisingly everything worked out great and I'm very happy with the prints.
These prints will be on sale February 17th during their show at the Congress Theatre in Chicago, IL.
Sorry Folks but I ended up running into some trouble with the Mouse Man here. After having a lot of trouble with this guy, I figured I would just focus on finishing him and not worry about documenting the progress. Pro tip: you don't have the patience to let spray paint dry, DON'T USE SPAY PAINT! Anyhoo, he's done now and I think the end product came out pretty well. If you want to see him in person, he will be at Gallery 1988: Melrose (7020 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038) starting Januray 13th. The opening reception runs from 7-10pm.
