sunrise and the city

acting up in morning traffic

abandon sleep

been getting ready for my next solo show. the date is still tentative so i'll post more about that later. i'm keeping most of the new work under wraps until the opening, but here are two for now.

was really excited to get the opportunity to shoot some photos of apnea for a print. numbered edition of 40, acrylic on newsprint 24"x36".
also did a special numbered edition of 6 on 25"x38" 80lb white paper; five of which will be available exclusively through lithium picnic to help with their legal fees.

contact: or

not such an exciting back story on these. just into organic themes and hooded figures right now. numbered edition of 41, acrylic on newsprint 24"x36".

circles and intellect

received yesterday this flier for the "don't sleep" group show that opened on the 16th at premium goods, featuring nobody i know. i've posted pics from other shows they've done at premium goods in the past. but for the 10 (+/-) out of towners that read this blog and don't know about premium goods, it's a sneaker boutique for all your super limited crazy colored nikes that also hosts outsider and street level group art shows every couple months. i don't know who did the flier, but couldn't help but notice the use of the GIVE UP razor image in the collage. without permission or having my work affiliated with the show in any way. i can't really get down on premium goods because i know the owners have a "curator" for the shows and have little more to do with them than the lending of their walls. but what is especially humorous is the fact that their former, and i assume current, curator - who's work is also featured in this most recent show - told me when they first started toying with this art installation idea that my work was too dark and "apathetic" to ever be shown there. i guess not enough so to keep them from using it to get people to their openings though. but PG is still a cool place to get clown shoes, if that's what you're into.

seagulls and ten crowns

according to this blog and word about town and my own admission, my efforts on the street have been lacking. and instead concentrated on tshirts and band stuff and things for other people. about the best i've come up with or done anything with lately are these seagull stickers. which admittedly aren't the best thing i've ever done.

but other things have been a lot more important or interesting:

i did go over to kylie from stray dog (palehorse post from september) and caleb from ten crowns house and was reminded of these ten crowns posters i did a couple years ago. color did the script. 11x17 two color print on heavy stock. i think there were 80 or 100.

shirtless v. soulless

done tshirts with 'give up' imagery on them for a while. more out of demand than desire. but ego and impending bills get the best. never promoted them very hard. mostly because i thought the idea of doing shirts would detract from the legitimacy of the art. as if postering were legitimate in the first place. but also because most are done in such short runs that advertising hardly seems to matter.
a couple of the newer. tissue thin. with worn seems and edges. water based inks for a soft/faded/worn in look and feel.

these and others available at:

stabin cabin prison blues

last week i dropped this photo off over at mark floods studio. it was the reference for a giant 6'x4' print i did last year. a lot of people know mark for his lace paintings and his funny and sometimes offensive column that ran on for a while. but he was also once perry webb, singer for seminal texas punk band culturcide - who were featured in the movie american hardcore. his latest musical venture, stabin cabin, has a new record ready for release and they're using my photo for the cover.

staying busy in the studio. new print. actually not done in an edition.
acrylic on wood panel, 13"x23"

i met the guys in folsom on the first/last couple of days that they picked up on a tour that the band i was doing merch for was leaving. then a year later when i merched a short tour with will to live that ended in las vegas.

this photo is from the insert of one of their cds and was taken in san antonio some time before we met..

..but i still snuck in.
since we're doing music. this is the cover for morgue city's album. spike contacted me about doing it last year and pretty much let me run with whatever i wanted to do. i did the layers on paper and he stacked them in photoshop and put their name on it. i don't have a picture of the final version with the text. i don't know why this took me so long to post.
