Lullz

Hey guys! So, there are some shows in the coming months that I'm really excited to be a part of, but there miiight be a short lull on this blog as far as new paintings go (mostly because they're all in the very early idea/sketching stages). I'll try to make a post with a sketch or progress shot every once in a while, though!

In the meantime, be sure to check out my facebook page because I've been uploading a lot of old, un-blogged work that I'm rediscovering as I look through files on my computer, as well as the occasional quickie drawing (I don't remember if I've ever mentioned it in a post, but my friends Alessandro and Mylan and I run this blog called Sugarboner, where we post quick doodles, mini collaborations, and whatever random fun/dumb/silly stuff we want.) I post my updates from Sugarboner on my facebook page, but you can follow the blog directly too to get updates whenever any of the three of us post.
Here's a little taste:



My secret passion is drawing sandwiches and other sandwich-like foods. Now you know.

Also, you can follow me on twitter to get updates from both this blog and sometimes Sugarboner, as well as the occasional attempt at humor. What a bargain!

I hope you enjoy all that stuff while I work on some paintings. Keep on the lookout for some sketches!

Gallery 1988 x [adult swim]

Happy New Year, guys!
To start the year off with some weird fun, Gallery 1988 is having an Adult Swim show, which opens this Friday the 13th (from 7-10pm) at their Melrose location. All the work is inspired by original programs featured on Adult Swim. My piece is a "Childrens Hospital"-inspired pin-up of Megan Mullally's character, Chief.


"The Sexiest Chief in All of Brazil"
Acrylic, gouache, and ink on paper mounted on cradled wood panel
8" x 10" x 1.5"

Here's the original sketch:



If you're in LA, come check out the show. It's sure to be fantastic. I mean, look at the line-up!
Aaand just for fun, here are all the characters from "Childrens Hospital" dancing:


***PS: The Taetrum et Dulce show at MondoPOP Gallery in Rome has been extended till January 28th, so if you happen to be in the area, please check it out!
