So I’ve been doing some new things. Doing a little bit of figurative work. This is a fairly recent piece. I never knew how much hair could be in a beard!

Excited to finally be finished with this new painting! I’ve been working on it on and off for several months. It’s headed to the Supersonic Electronic Invitational in San Francisco for their January show at Spoke Art. It’s called “At the Drive In” and is oil on canvas. It’s inspired by my love of watching 2001: A Space Odyssey as a kid on VHS and not really understanding what in the world was going on… Hope you like!

I tried ring pops for the first time in years….they wouldn’t fit on my fat finger

Now that I’m in grad school I’ve had no time to post or play on tumblr. But here is a quick drawing I did last night. I’ve been experimenting with the slinky form. This is spray paint and charcoal on paper.
I’ve been experimenting with an alternative photographic process called Vandyke Brown printing. This is a small little lego photo I printed. So you brush on a photo-sensitive emulsion onto paper and then expose a negative to light. And put it through two chemical baths and you get a neat little warm brown photo. It looks like the old-timey photos of the 1800s.
