I'm really enjoying working on these past couple "experimental" pieces. In the past, I've done pieces like these to loosen up, and I usually get something really important out of them. It's a way of me getting even more familiar with my medium and process. This piece is called "Elders plague"Thank you for the kind comments and support. I may not get a chance to respond to the comments, but I do read and appreciate them!

it's weird.

I know. Sometimes my mind flows in an abnormally strange direction and my hands try their hardest to keep up. This is another experimental piece. I call it "contamination"

It's not very often that I do something in a sketchbook that I feel is worthy of a blog post. I've been sketching more often, so maybe that will change. I did this sketch while having a few drinks at a local bar, and I'm pretty happy with it.

I just found this video on Gallery 1988's blog. It was written by Jensen Karp of 1988, and shows my Tony Danza painting from one of my previous posts. Awesome.

Actually, it wasn't much of a paint party. I worked in complete silence tonight and made this. "Messenger"

I was asked to be in a tribute to Edward Scissorhands show coming up at gallery Nucleus. This is my contribution.

I'd like to thank Sebastien Mesnard ( for including me in the show. The art so far is pretty awesome, and can be viewed at

First of all, I'd like to mention how much of a difficult time I had on this. Doing a likeness is pretty difficult, so I did another version of this comedian and had to scrap it because the likeness was off. This is the first of three comedians that I did for the show. I was only going to do one piece for the show, but was asked to do a couple more. This also happens to be the last one that I finished. I'm pleased with the outcome. The
I'll post the other two after the show tomorrow!

I'm part of a couple group shows coming up this weekend. The first show is on friday night at Gallery 1988. "Is this thing on" is a tribute to comedians and I have a couple pieces in the show.

On Saturday, I'm part of a group show at Le Basse projects in Culver City.

I'll post my pieces for these shows within the week.

makin' a mess

As I was taking my usual walk tonight, for some reason the thought of coming home and experimenting with charcoal sounded appealing. I've been thinking about this for awhile, but I decided that tonight I was going to go for it. It was a nice break, once again, from my usual work method. It was nice to get my hands covered in charcoal, and using my fingers as a blending tool was pretty cool. It's been awhile, and hopefully it won't be too long before I use them again.

If it's not already obvious, I love to do portraits.
