-Grumpy Study

Scrambling to find something to put up for Monday I pulled out this figure study from my SVA days and scanned it. oil on masonite, 11"x19" 1999?
I remember that this model kept nodding off to sleep and at some point some students were pretty irritated. One in particular yelled at him so the model just quietly said, "I feel sick." got up, threw on clothes and walked out.

-Los Angeles

I just got back to NYC from my wonderful vacation in Los Angeles. Thanks to everyone everywhere. I didn't take any photos while there and am bummed about that because a lot happened. Anyways here's some pics from the opening all taken by Sam Graham.(cept the last one) The whole album is on Thinkspace Gallery's FLICKR and also on their FACEBOOK PAGE. If you were there you can tag yourself. Instagram!

Here's me signing a 24"x24" print of "The Stray" which will be available through Thinkspace's website really soon with an edition of just 25. Its time to update that Selected Works section.

I don't know Krysten Ritter, but she was there.

These are the guys that made it happen. I thought there was a group photo of us with Allison Sommers too, but didn't see it. She has some super detailed gouache paintings in the project room.

See. The show goes through the to the 28th. You should check it out.

-Kick Off.

About to head to Los Angeles for my show at Thinkspace Gallery. Contact Andrew Hosner at for any inquiries about the work. Here is a 2 1/2 minute time-lapse I put together of me working on it. Looks like I need a faster computer, but I really enjoy making these videos so count on more showing up.
Also have a mini interview "Back Talk" on the Juxtapoz website HERE.
Here's a small 12"x 12 painting titled "Sea Villa" My last one of 2011. Finished it about 11:30pm New Years Eve then somehow made it outside for the countdown. No big deal. I want to start painting ocean water more often.
