Something in the Water

Just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that my first, SOLO art show will be opening on Friday, October 4th, down in my hometown of Harlingen, TX at the Harlingen Arts & Heritage Museum. I know it's a strange destination for a lot of you, but I have a lot of fun things planned that night & would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have you ALL there & build the excitement for the BEST Holiday ever, Halloween!
The exhibit will run until Nov. 18th. A lot more info is coming soon, but try to save the date...
Please help spread the word, amigos.

Some time ago in the small, rural town of Hallow End, strange occurrences began happening to the inhabitants in this isolated place. What first began with what seemed to be small birth defects turned into questions & confusion when adults (both young & old) began showing signs of odd behaviors & "transformations". These questions traveled to further, outside locations & soon fell on a particular set of ears eager to answer them: Dr. Herbert Putare. Upon visiting & investigating Hallow End while interviewing & testing the people living there, Dr. Putare's search eventually led him to Manus Springs, the only water supply for the tiny town. There he discovered an object which seemed to answer the question of why these bizarre things were happening but took him even deeper into unexplained territory. These are his findings....

Where be monsters? Here There Be Monsters!!

Hey guys! Long time no update, but I've been busy with stuff including locking myself in my studio & preparing new pieces for my FIRST SOLO ART SHOW("Something in the Water") opening October 4th in Harlingen, TX. More info on that later, but wanted to give you a heads up that I'll be setting up at Here There Be Monsters Con here in Austin TOMORROW from 11:30-7:30pm.

It's gonna be at Vuka on Monroe St. & should be a fun, nerdy time. I'll have a few goodies for you guys, so please come out & support some local talent. Here's their Facebook event with the lineup & all the info you need. Hope to see you there!

I've also been SO LUCKY to be included in a new toy company down in San Antonio called RETROBAND. Aaron is the badass who runs this company & has pumped out some AMAZING, limited edition figures all set in the horror genre:

His last release was "Jordy" from CREEPSHOW which he gave away five of my CREEPSHOW prints to the first buyers...
...they sold out super, duper fast & have caught the attention of some of the biggest horror blogs out there.
His NEXT release (scheduled for this coming Saturday, August 31st) is another character from the iconic 1982 film that will make you lose your head! He contacted me to design the packaging for for the figure & after I did SITTING BACKFLIPS from excitement, I scribbled out some nonsense which will house Aaron's horrific toy!:
So follow RETROBAND & buy ALL their upcoming figures or forever kick yourself. These guys WILL sell out fast...
Okay, hope to see you tomorrow, but for now, back to my cave to work on more new pieces for my art show....
