I had a great time at The Hounds of Love gallery opening on Saturday. Here are some shots by
Melissa Cha of the event and the performance by my band Single Lash that drove most of our visitors away.

For an extra-fun bonus, here's a photo I found tucked into my sketchbook recently of Colin and I jamming:

I'm in an apocalyptic mode lately- but that doesn't mean I'm feeling pessimistic. All aspects of life are shifting from one mode to another. This piece seems to reflect that feeling to me. New life is taking root and ovegrowing the brittle husks of the old world. These forms are flourishing in the ruins. I finally found a house in Austin, and I am very excited to live with my friends- two fellow RISD alums and my Single Lash partner Colin. I'll also have more space to work so I can go bigger and bigger. Now to get a job...

Another new painting, this one was actually begun over two months ago as an experiment. Over a "pale olive" acrylic base, I silkscreened a rainbow gradiant of oil paint, which gave a nice effect but honestly was such a pain to clean that I'm not sure it would be worth it to try again. After giving that layer a few days to get a tacky conistancy, I used a small brush to dab over it in white, giving the misty atmospheric effect you see now. All in all succesful, I'd say, but unnecesarilly time-consuming for sure, and working with a smaller studio space is leading me to work with less toxic materials than I was at school. Getting constant migraines from solvent fumes is not condusive to a healthy work ethic, let alone a healthy artist.

I pity the poor soul who didn't make it to the opening of Deathrace 1776. A great time was had by all- especially me. I officially unveiled the new oil paintings I've been working on for the past 8 weeks or so. I'm very excited about them and foresee many more to come, but I'll discuss all that in more detail in a later post. For now, check out these snapshots of the opening!

Here's my poster for my upcoming senior show in the ISB Gallery at RISD. It was fun to take such a ridiculous concept so far- recasting the ride of Paul Revere as a late 70's/early 80's gore-sploitation film. Who says illustrators can't be designers too? Below is the original acrylic painting that I used in the poster:
Everyone featured in the show is making their own unique poster- the only elements carrying through will be the show title and information. I'm the first to finish and I can't wait to see the others!
Big updates on anartwebsite.com I've posted a bunch of new work so check it out!

Well, I've finally done it- my political piece. Normally I shy away from explicitly addressing the topic in my work- but this was done as an assignment in my Current Topics class. So here we have the two mutated behemoths duking it out, oblivious to the utter destruction they're reeking all around them. It seems like an apt metaphor to me.

This is an image I designed for a short run of t-shirts. It's a four-color screenprinted design and I'm very excited at the prospect of people actually wearing my art in their daily lives. The shirts will be featured at the imaginatively titled Shirt Show in the RISD ISB Gallery, where they'll be for sale along with dozens of other unique printed works by RISD artists. The event will be held tomorrow from 6 to 9 and will include a performance by Single Lash . Hope to see you there.

New copper drypoints from the experimental printmaking class I'm taking this semester. They're not too experimental, actually, but I like them. Just straight, strong armed etching into a metal plate- feels more like keying a car than drawing.
