Comicpalooza 2015


Can you believe summertime is practically here already?! How do I know that? Well, other than the extreme temperatures that are slowly teasing us right now, it's once again time for my FAVORITE convention of the year....: COMICPALOOZA!
That's right, I'll be very briefly making Houston my home from May 22nd thru the 25th for this fun-filled-four-day con which will undoubtedly be massacred with high fives & good times! My partner in art (& the womb), Lance, will also be there with his rad art including his newest, hardcover book, FOR THE TITLE. Definitely come by & pick one of these up...it's hilariously funny! We'll be side by side at TABLES 1729 & 1731...
Here's a complex map to find our funny faces:


I'll have the regular goodies of art prints, shirts, stickers, buttons, original art, screen prints, blah, blah & blah as well as doing a limited number of commissions at the show (watercolor &/or ink). A special item I'll be releasing at the convention is my newest "Monster MugShot"! As a child, I somehow managed to sneak a viewing of EASILY one of the scariest movies to enter my head. The main actress in this scarring film will be a guest at Comicpalooza so I thought it was a perfect time to add this "monster" to my ongoing, horror series... That movie was 'The Exorcist', that actress was Linda Blair & that new "Monster MugShot" is Regan MacNeil:
Regan is lucky number 13 in the MugShot collection, so please swing by & pick up this little print of her (AND maybe get Linda Blair to vomit pea soup all over it tooooooo!;)
So all my newer stuff will be added to my online store shortly after the show, so please check that to see if there's some ugly art there to make you happy.
Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram & Twitter where I'll be having giveaways throughout the show(you obviously have to be present to do this)...FREE stuff truly rules over ALL other stuff!
Alright friends, really looking forward to hanging out...see you soon, Houston!

Heeeeeey Youuuuuuu Guuuuuuuuys!

So this past weekend was the 'Storm the Castle' event organized by Spratx & the friendly peeps from theCHIVE. They brought 30 artists together to paint murals in an abandoned warehouse in E. Austin following the theme of "Heroes/Icons". There was music, food trucks, art vendors, cold beer/water, free swag & a ton of great people….it was a blast!
After mulling over ideas on what I would paint for this event, I finally came upon a "hero" from my childhood that HAD to be painted. Yep…the disfigured, sweetheart that we've ALL impersonated numerous times with his unforgettable one-liners & catch phrases: SLOTH!!

Here's a quick, process video of me painting this big guy from photos taken by the lovely Hilary Hitt:

THANK YOU to everyone who came out. It was great seeing old faces & meeting new friends!
ALSO! The fine people at theCHIVE are currently holding a "Viewer's Choice" competition from all the murals created at the event. Go check them all out & if you think my SLOTH mural was "good enough",  please cast a vote for me! There's no sign up necessary,  just a quick click & you're done! You can also vote per IP address, so every phone, computer, iPad, tablet, whatever... each count as a separate vote.  VOTE HERE: http://thechive.com/2015/05/04/vote-now-for-storm-the-castle-winner-30-hq-photos/

Storm the Castle

Hey, friends!
Just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that I'll be doing some LIVE painting TOMORROW, Saturday, May 2nd, here in Austin at Spratx & theCHIVE's 'Storm the Castle' event. 

30 artists are coming together & each creating a 10"x 8" mural following the theme of "Heroes/Icons". Not only will an overload of live art keep you entertained, but there will also be music, drinks & a plethora of food trucks to keep your belly entertained too!
There will be prizes given away to the hard working artists based on "Viewer's Choice", so I'd LOVE if you came out & supported them (& ME:).
So let's hang out tomorrow from 11am-6pm at a cool warehouse located at 2416 E. 6th St. It's FREE to everyone, even the kiddos & four legged kiddos too!
Hope to see you all there with your high five hands...
