This should be cool.

I'm going to be in a pretty cool group show coming up. I'm trying to be a bit more selective on picking shows from now on, but this lineup was too good to pass up! I wish that I could be there for the opening...
These are the pieces that I'm sending up.

"The lesser of two evils"
My thanks goes out to Ryan De La Hoz of Double Punch, for including me in the show and being a cool guy and rad artist.

pigs fly

As promised, here are a few images of the shirt design that came out today from GK1988. The shirts are very limited. For the design, we were asked to take their logo and redesign it in our style. This is what I came up with.

Follow this link to take a look!

small gift

I painted this small piece as part of a gift for my girlfriend's birthday, which also happened to be Thanksgiving. I've been painting her something for her birthday for the past 8 years! The shirt that I mentioned below will be released in a few hours, so I'll post again then. Meet "Claudette".

tshirt fridays

I have a new tshirt design coming out this friday that is part of a partnership between gallery 1988, and Glamour Kills. This first line of shirts from GK1988 has a cool lineup of artists (Greg “Craola” Simkins, Alex Pardee, Lora Zombie, Brandi Milne, Ken Garduno and Jordan Buckley), and the shirts are very limited.

Check out gk1988.com for their release this friday.
I'll post the shirt as soon as I can.

I am a passenger.

Actually, I haven't been a "passenger" on public transportation in Los Angeles for many years. I do, however, remember what it was like riding the RTD (precursor to MTA for you younger folks) in my high school/early college years. This piece for the latest issue of the LA Weekly is an homage to my early days of bus riding...

As always, my thanks goes out to Jason and Darrick at the weekly!

facelift and sketches.

I'm in the process of updating my website, so I haven't really had a chance to work on new pieces. I'll make sure to post when my updated website goes online. For now, I'm posting these random sketches that I've done this week.
This first sketch is a portrait sketch from a random online picture. I'm trying to work on likeness, and I was pretty happy with this sketch.
These next two will eventually make it to finished pieces...

AND...one more set that i just found. They are also soon to be finished pieces.

By the way, if anyone out there is on Instamatic, look me up under ken1028.
Thanks for checking in!

keepin' up

I haven't posted in awhile because i've been busy working on a pretty great project. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like the project is going to work out, though. I'll probably post sketches and give you all some details later on. For tonight, I thought I'd make a piece to keep the blog running. "Crowned"
UPDATE: This piece was just added to my etsy store, along with some other new stuff. Take a look!
