Special Giant Robot Print

Posted by rob on September 23, 2011



A one-of-a-kind print of my "...Future Passed" painting will be available at Giant Robot's "Robots" show opening Sept. 24. I added some hand painted elements to just one of these prints exclusively for Giant Robot (see attached images). Painted in acyrylic, there's a few extra rotting WWII Valkyrie-like planes done in the lower margin of the print. There's only a few of these left, and this is the only one which will be individualized. If you've been saving up for this print, the time to act has come. All proceeds from this show will go towards aiding Giant Robot's transformation of the GR2 store into a fully functioning gallery space. Artists from the whole GR spectrum have contributed works for the show, helping out a hard working establishment that has helped so many of us get our work recognized. It will be rad.

I made this comic about seven years ago in a sketchbook and rediscovered it today. Please forgive the crude drawing, then forgive nothing else.

Found Drawing

Posted by rob on July 5, 2011

I was cleaning out my studio and I found a stale old sketchbook with only two pages drawn on in it. These were done absentmindedly while watching Andy Kaufmann's "My Breakfast with Blassie" a few years ago. I very rarely do caricatures, and it's not my typical drawing style, so these were weird to stumble on. Looking at old sketchbooks is like time traveling, and this one was had the added feeling that I was seeing into an alternate universe. In any case, I think they're funny drawings.

Another Bad Band

Posted by rob on June 21, 2011

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.

Devil's Playthings

Posted by rob on June 7, 2011

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.
