It's been a whirlwind of a year with lots of changes. My wife and I are excited to be expecting our second child next March. We decided that we needed a bigger house for our needs and moved across town around the end of summer. Luckily, we found the perfect house for our needs and it accommodates my son with his disability. The new house also allows me to have a bigger work space for my studio, which I'm very excited to have.
It was another great year at Portland Saturday Market and Rose City Comic Con. I'll be back at the market in March of 2018. Rose City Comic Con will be September 7th to the 9th. Look forward to seeing everyone again next year. Thanks to everyone who has supported my work this year, I really appreciate it.
I'm currently looking for any help with representation for galleries and other art venues. I'm able to create a completely new series or use pieces that are in my current inventory. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Didn't make as much new art as I wanted to this year but I was able to expand my prints and prints on canvas selection. Now that my studio is setup, I'm starting to get work on some new art. I have a list of different projects in various mediums to work on so I should be busy through winter. I've also started work on a new limited edition art zine that will be filled with illustrations and a CD containing new music.
I'm no longer using Facebook or Twitter. You can still find me on Instagram and Tumblr, for the time being. The wiser I get, the less I want to use social media. I'm going to focus more on using my website for updates and happenings now.
Again, I want to thank everyone who supported my work this year. Your support helps me to continue my creative journey and helps support my family. Looking forward to the new year and making a bunch of new art.
This weekend kicks off my start of the 2017 season at Portland Saturday Market. I'll be around from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 11am to 4:30pm on Sunday. I'll be located under the Burnside bridge. All prints are in stock and I have a few new pieces available this weekend.
A time lapse of creating a "Let's Mutate!" pop-out monster for this year's series "Attack of the Comics." This piece was created on a 8x8 birch wood canvas and uses pages from an old 80's Punisher comic. Piece number 8 in this year's series.
8x8 Original pop-out birch wood canvas illustration
(acrylic, spray, ink, mix media)
Twelve piece from this year's "Let's Mutate!" series. This piece incorporates a comic book cell and uses pages for the canvas background from 2000's Marvel Wolverine. The monster layer pops out from the canvas to give a 3D effect.
The popular custom designer toy is back! Sculpted and hand painted vinyl doll using acrylic, ink and sealed with a clear coat protection. The case is wood and glass. Each one is hand made and might have slight variances from the photos. These take approximately 8-10 hours to make.
New mini "Hamsa Secrets" and "Sugarskul Secrets" 6x4 pop-out canvas. These pieces are high quality, museum grade giclee print on original canvas. The backgrounds use old classifieds from the 1940's. Each one is unique and no two are the same. Sealed with a gloss varnish for protection.
Two new prints from my "Secrets" series, where each design uses 13 different symbols. The Hamsa hand is an ancient Arabic and Hebrew symbol used as a ward against the evil eye. The Sugar skull comes from the Mexican tradition Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) and are typically edibles created with sugar or clay.
These museum grade 10x8 giclee prints are printed on Somerset Museum Rag Paper stock,300 gsm, 100% Cotton Paper, Mould Made, PH Neutral, Acid-Lignin and Chlorine Free to ensure longevity.
