The Ultimate Warriors

Another fine cover show is coming from the gentlemen who behind the last few 90's cover shows I did artwork for. This time they go by the name The Ultimate Warriors. When someone asks me to do a piece about wrestling, I'm usually chomping at the bit to get it done. The Ultimate Warrior is always fun to draw.

Ramones Tribute Poster

I had the honor of collaborating with the lovely Robin Jane Sigel on this poster for The 2nd Annual Ramones Tribute show to benefit Relay For Life. Robin provided the illustrations while I took care of the design and layout.
I will be at the show THIS COMING FRIDAY doing live art while the bands rock out. I will be collaborating a giant piece with Carlos Fierros and Jaime Contreras which will slowly come together as the show progresses. I've never done live art before, so I'm looking forward to riding my colleague's coat tails and doing something cool.
I hope everyone comes out. The show is only $5 and the proceeds benefit The Relay For Life, an annual walkathon which funds cancer research.

The show starts at 9PM at On The Rocks. See everyone there!

Coming June 2013.

The Big Lebowski Mini Paintings

My latest set of miniature paintings are dedicated to one of my favorite films, The Big Lebowski. Unfortunately the likenesses all came out oddly... mexican looking. My favorite being Steve Buscemi, but only because he came out looking like Peter Lorre and that makes me chuckle a bit.
Anyway, these paintings will be making their debut tonight at First Friday in downtown Bakersfield. They are being sold as a set ONLY. Namely because I can't see anyone wanting to buy Maude on its own. I'm asking for $60 for the set, which includes these adorable miniature wooden easels.
I'm really looking forward tonight's First Friday. I missed last month because I was in Portland, so I'm looking forward to returning. I just put together more copies of "Quit Yer Blubberin'" which will also be available. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight.

New Sketchbook

 One of the most nerve racking things on the planet is laying down the first lines in a brand new sketchbook. A new sketchbook has so many possibilities, and its hard to shake the feeling that you're somehow going to ruin the whole book if you don't do something good on the first page. It shouldn't be, but for some reason there is a lot of pressure in that first drawing. So I made myself a cup of coffee, took a deep breath, and just drew what was in front of me. 

Well, here's to more sketches where that came from. 
Cheers.
