horror business at tradition

houton press

i didn't realize it was already that time of year again. or that my work was even in consideration. but in the new houston press 'best of houston' 2008 GIVE UP is named as the best graffiti artist. i don't consider myself a graffiti writer, and there are a lot of writers and crews that have been grinding it out a lot harder than me, but i'm not mad at it at all.

what really got me was also being named 'best local artist' in the readers poll. a big thank you to anyone who had a hand in either of these.

in the same issue this girl is wearing a GIVE UP shirt in a contemporary arts museum ad. houston press is killing it this week.


the folsom guys turned the european tour posters i did for them into a t-shirt. check their myspace ( for the remaining dates of their current US tour to pick one up.

also just got this zine in the mail from william cody watson of the stolen babies blog to the right of this page. the presentation is really great. very low print run so get after him through the stolen babies site to see what he still has available.

can't get my head right..

..when i can't get my life right.

new, juxtapoz, etc.

being an 'artist'. trying to support myself as an 'artist'. is sometimes a double edged sword. pretty much get to do what i want. but can't always afford the things i want. like anything out of the current 'catalyst' show at fifty24. tickets to the carcass reunion tour. the limited kasner integrity shirts from shirtsanddestroy. or the new juxtapoz tattoo book. which features a picture of tim lehi wearing one of the black metal masks i made a while back...

...which might be remembered from this old roller pic. but life goes on.

i don't remember this.

new print for the upcoming 'horror business' show at tradition in westlake village, ca.
24"x36" acrylic on newsprint. numbered edition of 42. with 2 APs on heavy rag.

more information on the show soon.

harvest process hoods

maybe i've been listening to too much neurosis, amon amarth, and holy terror bands. watching the tree line along the highway and the sky through the silhouetted canopy of the woods. as this 'harvest process' image has been finding its way into my work. the amalgamation of the harvest rune and the identifying symbol of the process church cult. reap what you sow.
