-Just an update

This is pretty much the highest resolution i have of this painting from 2003 which sucks because I liked this painting.

"Madaline" 12"x16" oil on wood.

Here's the close up of the original drawing.

I did end up doing an updated version based on it.

"Ivan" 15"x20" 2006

And here is a small commission I did a while back.

Untitled "Mother with Child" from 2007. I think it was 6"x9".

-Sketchbook Filler

Sketchy drawing of the cash register at Hotel Delmano. A clipping from The Onion that accurately explains my mindset upon booking my trip to Portland.
A horribly drawn cup and the correct sequence to win the wooden peg jump game every time.

Sketch of the band Child Abuse at Union Pool last summer.

On the opposite end of the music spectrum, here's Leah and Drew Victor playing at the Annex.

A view outside of a Parson's art school window and view inside a doctor's office waiting room.

Based on the little icons in the upper corner, I must be talking about, tapioca bubble tea, my friend Janicza, and something to do with wedding rings and shrimp bbq's.

-Still working...

House of Mystery 14

Straight forward. Werewolf. Machine gun.

Here's the pencil drawing, I should have made the wolf side look as if it was coming out from under her skin in the final painting. See the zigzag line between the eyes? That's where I was indicating some "tearing", I should have stressed the divide instead of blending them.
Below are the preliminary sketches.

That's all I got this week. Sorry.

-Fell In Love 10 Times Today

The weather was absolutely incredible this weekend in NYC.
People were out in full bloom...

Ink sketch for one of the paintings I'm working on. Though I've been super busy this week, don't have anything to show just quite yet.

Here's Soybean high on static.

-Vertigo 11

Out of order, but this was for House of Mystery issue 11.

Oil on wood 12" x 18"..that little guy better watch out, there's stuff falling.

And here are the sketches scanned in with computer tones.

A close up.

The painting below is from 2005. My friend Autumn gave me a can of spar varnish(used for waterproofing ships and stuff) so I tested it out on this sort of abstracted image. I like the aged-yellow glaze it produced and it feels as if I should be placing drinks on it like a coaster.

This is basically what I look and feel like while getting out of bed some days.
