Here's a cheerful, friendly creature drawn in an older style.
It's better than being bored in church, but waiting in cramped holes watching bands sometimes tests my ability to stay in my skin, & quiet solace must be sought in the sketchbook. A friend suggested I put together a book of drawings of bad bands I've drawn over the years and call it "Your Band Sucks", turns out I actually don't have that many. Most are of good bands. This drawing is of a bad one, though. Sorry guys, whoever you are.
Went to the vet and there was this pug, fat and wheezy.
Came across an old sketch for an old painting, "The Congregation" this morning. In some ways I like it better than the finished piece. The sketch was made where a lot of drawing always got done during childhood--my parents' church. This time I was bored out my mind as an adult. Some things never change.
My painting "The Choice Cut Cult" has now been made into an exquisite new print by Gallery Nucleus. These things are nice. Printed on some amazing paper, limited to just 20 prints, signed & numbered for just $95. See HERE for availablity.
I have a piece in Gallery Nucleus' "Lined In Lead" show, featuring works made exclusively in graphite. The show will be on display until April 11th.
I'm finishing up the final work and preparing to head to Oakland tomorrow to hang "Blowing the Hatch" at Rowan Morrison, my first and everyone's last show at this wonderful place. It's a huge honor to be chosen for the gallery's closing exhibition. Many thanks to longtime friends and owners, Pete and Narangkar Glover, for the hard, dedicated work they've done providing Oakland with a great gallery for 5 years. Please join us to blow this joint. Preview some works from the show after the jump.
