Double the pleasure, double the fun

Here are two new pieces, both of which will be in shows this coming Saturday:

"Out-of-Body Experience"
Mixed media on paper, mounted on panel
8" x 10"

The theme of the show this piece is in is "voyage," so I wanted to illustrate a mental journey/mind trip. This piece looks much better in person, since I used silver ink for the standing figure... You can really see the shine in person. Anyway, it will be for sale at the "Voyage" group show at Liliya China Bistro, featuring Otis students, alumni, and teachers – including Cecil Kim, who owns the restaurant. Thanks for having us, Cecil!

Mixed media on paper, mounted on cradled board
12" x 12" x 2"

Deep space meets deep sea! Sexy. This piece will be part of the final The Kids Are Alright show, which takes place at LeBasse Projects. It's been an amazing tour, and I'm so glad I was a part of it. Big thanks to Beau of LeBasse Projects for setting it up and inviting me to be a part of it!

Hope you can make it to one or the other show...or both!

Oh man. What cool artwork! I love "Deep" a whole lot, the concept really shines through!

I'm really diggin' these nebulous space backdrops; beautiful but not distracting, and they still enrich the narrative. Great job, as always, dude.

Aw thanks guys!

Yeah Zach, the space backgrounds are so fun to do because you never really know how it's gonna look until everything's completely dry. I love the randomness of the process, especially since most of my other stuff is so controlled.

Egads! Lovely. You're a winner for that triangle up there, but of course I'm biased regarding those...
The fluidity in the forms you draw is one of the things I truly admire.
