Summer is (finally) over

And good god am I bloody thankful, though I always feel funny saying that.

I've been pushing the hell out of the FB page (, and am currently working on a series for San Diego's Thumbprint Gallery. And some pet projects of course, including a redesign on the website. I think it's time that I learned how to use all the cool galleries and stuff.

Anyways, here's a couple of something's that I am currently working on:

I know, I know, I'm sorry

I've been negligent and I haven't come to visit you for a really, really long time.

So here's the cliff-notes version:

+Currently redesigning my website. Hooray, cos they took away my ftp servers and now I have to call  them to figure out how, exactly, one is supposed to upload their own website without such useless things as ftp servers.

+Been painting like crazy. For those of you in San Diego or the So Cal area, I have a show of my work coming up at True North Tavern. Come visit me and check it out, the reception (if you want to call it that) is going to be on Monday June 11th at 7pm. It will be up all month until June.

Other than that, life is as normal. Or, as normal as it ever gets. So, here's some art to hold you over. If you want to see the most updated page, check out my facebook at

[.art dump.]

On Friday, Dylan was kind enough to drive me up to get some paintings photographed. Here are the results of this, and a speed painting from Saturday.

The two traditional pieces are currently on their way to being made into prints at the Untapped Source. Soo, yeah. Cheers.

[.don't try to stop us.]

This has very little to do with drawing, but in 2009 I took a ridiculous trip up part of the East Coast. During the course of this week-long, solitary excursion of hitch-hiking, Greyhound-ing, and (in the beginning and end of all of it) catching airplanes, I shot about 9 or 10 rolls of B&W film (mostly Kodak, but one Ilford HP5, though that doesn't matter much). Starting in Chapel Hill, NC (where I went for a free parking lot show of the band The Love Language), then catching a bus up to Washington, DC for 3 days or so, and then finally on to New York City for another 3 days or so, I spent a bit of time photographically exploring the different cities, and generally just exploring. So, here are some of the shots I liked best from the first roll I got back, from NYC.

Eventually, I will make hand-printed copies of all of this, and perfect the values on each. But these are the scanned negatives, for now.

[.the concert.]

So, I sketched this out after work one night, while the Microdots were playing... A week ago yesterday? Yeah, that sounds right. Anyways, thought I'd just go ahead and share this. I'm doing some fixes on my website right now, and otherwise just continuing to work on paintings and the "Watcher in the Fall" book project. Publication date is coming up, so I have until the end of June to finish the book cover for it. Otherwise, just starting to do some other sketches for it (vehicle design, creature design, characters, environments, and other illustrations) and I may be designing a written language. I am gonna have a helluva body of work out of this.

Anyways, here's the Concert sketch. I may bring this into painting form in August or September, too.

[.this or that?.]

So, I'm doing portraits right now. And here's a couple of quick sketches for the next one. Major difference is in the background. V1 has a weird skinny forest in the background. V2 has curtains and a heart shaped key. And I can't decide which one I like better. So here are both sketches.


Edit: 4.34pm

I went with the forest. Here's a super-quick colour study:

I've decided I'm going to call it "Bitter Fruits". It's a self portrait (which is annoying, I hate doing them, but whatever), and it's named for the tattoo I have across my chest which says "The Bitter Fruit is Born of Anger". In the painting it's just going to say "Bitter Fruits" though. The final will be 10.5" by 22", oil on masonite.
