This will just be a brief post to assure my blog that I haven’t forsaken it. There are a ton of commissions on the go, as they are finished I’ll be able to start posting them.
In the meantime, a friends birthday was celebrated with the first annual Duke of Sooke Hillclimb. This involved a $200 car, 5 acres of wilderness (give or take), an unused terrifying gravel “road” and a full day of fun.
First the car needed some styling.
More after the jump. Beware, post DOES contain peens!
Less then three weeks before my first solo dealy. Still so much to do. It’s taking all my will power to not post any of the show things up here. You understand…right? No? Fine. Why do we have to fight in front of company?
There was at least one blip in the show prep.
Intake for a friends Jetta project.
Not breaking new ground, but I sure do like painting corpses and vomit.
Sideshow Massacre loves you…
So…this happened. Full pics after the break!
Next drift event is October 16th, if you’re on the island or anywhere near the West coast, your attendance is mandatory.
Every time I arrive here I’m surprised how long it’s been since my last visit. I haven’t quite got to the point where I recognize the blog as just as important to what I’m doing in my art life as the art itself. It always seems as though I’m working away on physical things, hands-on things, meanwhile this online presence becomes a no-man’s-land.
With the school season now in full swing, my job has become a weighty creature that can’t seem to be reconciled with my urge to do creative things. I’m still managing to keep myself motivated and still pushing ahead with the creative trip I embarked on almost a year ago but there are days when it feels like I’m living two incompatible lives.
At this point, my artwork/t-shirts/swag are a permanent fixture at Monster Party and Talk’s Cheap. Monster Party will be having its next group show mid-November, I’ll have new work there. There are some small paintings up in Absolute Underground. I’ll have some new work there as well in just a couple of weeks for their yearly Zombie Feast art show.
The Broken-Hearted Robot shirts and hoodies are still available ($15/$35) available directly from me or down at Talk’s Cheap.
I’ll be making a gaggle of posts this evening to try and get things mostly up to date. The site will be changing over the next couple of months to reflect my new work and reduce the quantity of old doodles that really helped me start all of this.
To anyone still reading or returning here again and again,
My domain’s about to expire too. I can’t believe it’s been a year.
I’m not sure what the deal is with Stumbleupon but I got stumbled a few days ago which ran my views for the day up 10x from their usual point. How did it happen, and how do I do it again?
I was in Maple Ridge B.C. painting another car and working on a fancy case of heat-stroke. Ended up painting a robo-hobo for a regular hobo…that owns a hot S13. My better half was snapping a ton of pics so I’ll put together a process post but for now, enjoy this.
Now, to arrange a photo shoot with the two Sideshow painted cars together…hmmmmm…
The Zombie Jesus graphic novel is done, printed and being bound as we speak. It was a lot of fun to be a part of the project and I picked up skills that I can now use on my own projects. The book will be available at the San Diego Comicon, Toronto’s Fan Expo in August and a locations around Victoria…also from me. I’ll have some pictures up once the book is in my hand.
As for new work. I picked up some of the tackiest gold 80’s frames ever from Value Village, brain frames! All it took was a little paint.
This handsome fellow was hung and sold before I could even update the blog, a big thank you to the new owner.
I have one more brain frame and a show coming up in August, they should be friends.
