ETERNAL SLEEP Opens Tonight in San Francisco!

"Animal Attraction"
14" x 18" / mixed media on board

Just a last-minute reminder for anyone Bay Area-bound, tonight -- ETERNAL SLEEP opens at the 1A.M. Gallery, from 7pm to 10pm. I'll have three brand spankin' new pieces in the exhibit, including "Animal Attraction," previewed up above. This show marks the gallery's one year anniversary. It's gonna be a hell of a good time. And I'm not just saying that because of the demon skulls and all the Dia De Los Muertos imagery involved.

War is HECK.

Just enjoying some quality time with a new-ish, square-format sketchbook I've been drawing in lately.

Candy Skulls Abound!

These here are the rumblings and bubbling of ideas for some Dia De Los Muertos-inspired works I'm making for an upcoming art show. It's called ETERNAL SLEEP, and it opens on October 16th at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco.

When I heard the theme for the show, the first thing that popped into my head was tiny nude nymphs in giant candy skull masks. So I picked up that ball and have been running with it. My finals are gonna be color drawings on illustration board, similar to the "Stone Knife" skate deck painting. I'm doing three pieces... one at 16" x 20", and two at 14" x 18". They'll feature everything from dancing o'er a bowl of fire, to post coital ressurrection.

Jeez, do I love the hell out of October...
