GALLERY1988 & FUNNY OR DIE PRESENT...

I was recently asked to participate in another (AMAZING) show at Gallery 1988 in LA. This time around i was asked to create a new original piece based on one of my favorite comedians of the 80's. I can't tell you who it is (yet) nor display it on the web (yet) but i can tell you i think it is one of my best yet! As the show gets closer i can reveal more info but for now i can just give you some info about the show. The show will be opening on Friday, Jan. 7th at Gallery 1988 in LA, 7pm - 11pm. Check out the G88 website for more info as the date gets closer. The show is being presented by Funny or Die and hosted by Chris Kurumada and Michael Rapaport. Additionally, will also being premiering pieces up until the show opens on their website as well so keep checking for cool new artwork. On a side note, I will actually be flying out to LA for the show opening so if your in the neighborhood come stop by and say hello! My piece along with +100 others will be on sale and it will prolly be a mad house! And apparently there maybe some cool suprise guests at the show. Below is a small preview of my piece for the show...
Additionally, you may have noticed that i am doing 2 new conventions. I will be doing the WildPig show again and the Boston Comic-Con; both in April. Checkout the sidebar in the top right for more info.

Sean Quixote Commission

Here's another commission in the books. I have way too many to handle recently and I still have a bunch more to go... This time around i had to create a Don Quixote piece with this guy name Sean (who may or may not have a healthy obsession with Mister Quixote) and his adorable dog Sancho who has an over-bite!

That's a huge fish!

Here is a logo i made for an Tacklecenter.com. It has a bass in it who looks quite shocked. I like to think he is saying the following: "Wooooaaaahhhh. I gotta update my Facebook status!"

Better Late then Never

So I have been super busy recently. Between going to Hawaii for 2 weeks for my Honeymoon and having tons of freelance on my plate posting has been real scarce... But a while back I did 2 smaller cons; the WildPig Con and BookFest. Below are some sketches and commissions i did while at those shows. I also worked on some stuff while in Hawaii which i will post later on but this should hold you over for now. I was thinking of making a print out of the Hawkeye commission cause i liked it so much. Thoughts?
Han Solo

Invincible

Sailor Jupiter

Cap!

Zombie Spiderman
Green Lantern Ranger Fan

Rainbow Man (i think he was a Flash villian)

Hawkeye

Tutrle in a top hat

A Dragon

Godzilla

Another Save the Date Commission

People are getting married and want me to make them pretty pictures! Everyone's happy! On a somewhat related side note; this piece and the Chuck commission were done for the same hip cat...

Wednesday, September 22

Loungin' Land Dweller

The latest in the series; Animals Are People Too. This one was actually started as a hand drawn commission at a comic convention but i liked it so much i needed to make a print out of it! I call this one Loungin' Land Dweller because he is a tortoise and according to Wikipedia "American English tends to use the word 'tortoise' for land-dwelling species" and Wikipedia is never wrong. This guy is based on Superfan's tortoise; Daryl. Which by the way, he didn't have a name so i decided to name him Daryl and apparently it stuck! What do you guys think? Like it? Love it? Don't care?

As soon as i finish up the other Chuck commission I will post that one too. By the way, new episodes start up again on Monday, September 20th! Woo! I like that show...

Gremlins: Part of This Complete Breakfast

And last but not least... my final entry into the 3G Show at Gallery 1988. Gremlins! When making this one I came to the realization that oatmeal is gross looking. Just look at it! I think my favorite part is the step by step directions on the side of the box.

If you happen to be LA in September, go check out the show. It opens September 3rd at 7pm. Go to the Gallery 1988 website for more info.

Rat Race

Here is the 2nd of my new series of Mini Animal prints. This one is called Rat Race. The reasoning behind the title is fairly obvious... It's my version of one of them new hip big city yuppies with his skinny tie, Bluetooth headset (so you can't tell if he's talking to you, someone on the other line, or just rambling on to no one in particular...), his freshly made caramel macchiato and thinking about buying and selling fancy cheeses all before I've had my Captain Crunch for breakfast! What a dirty rat...

Thanks to a good friend i made one minor but important change. I flipped the 'stock exchange' arrow to read left to right, it makes much more sense since we read left to right too. thanks buddy.

/Film Featurette

My 3G Goonies cereal box along with several other (awesome) pieces were featured over at Slash Film. So hop on over and eye ball some wonderful works...

The Goonies: Part of This Complete Breakfast

The 1st of 3 new pieces I have done for what I have dubbed the 3G Show. This show will be held at Gallery 1988 in LA and has work from friends like Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and Scott Derby. The theme of the show is basically the tri-fecta of awesome 80's movies; The Goonies, Ghostbusters & Gremlins. The only 'rule' for the show was to create 3 separate pieces for each of the 3 movies. I decided to create retro faux cereal boxes for each of the 3 movies, (And yes, I am aware that all 3 of these movies had fun breakfast cereal tie-ins already, some with multiple ones... I'm looking at you Ghosbusters...) each with there own spin on it. One new technique I tried on all of them was photographing real cereal and then photoshopping them onto the boxes 'cause i thought that would be cool. Can anyone guess what I used for this cereal? I'll give you a hint... it's 2 different cereals. Give up!? I used Fruity Pebbles and Count Chocula marshmallows (photoshopped gold to look like doubloons). This was also awesome because I love cereal so it gave me an excuse to buy more then just my normal 1 box per food shopping trip! Each of these pieces will be available for purchase once the show opens on September 3rd at the actual gallery in LA or through their website. There will be 2 versions of each of the 3 pieces. There will be a (2) 12" x 12" signed giclee stretched canvas prints of each piece for 100 beans as well at (15) 12" x 12" signed giclee watercolor paper prints for 50 beans. I will post the other 2 pieces later on to keep the suspense rolling...
