Post #1057 – My Friends, Atlas

This Friday night, be sure to catch two of the better up and coming bands from Delaware, Atlas and My Friends, as they celebrate the release of their brand new, split EP (on glorious 12″ vinyl) at the Queen in Wilmington. I was honored to be asked to design the record sleeve, which features the collage, […]

Post #1049 – So you guys wanna see a dead body?

I recently designed a t-shirt for Kinetic and Switch skate shops in Delaware, to help raise money for the new 7th Street skate spot in Wilmington.  The tee is loosely based on the film Stand By Me, as an inside-joke to the way-out-of-the-way location of the new park – it’s basically a long walk down […]

Post #1044 – Maya

I recently finished a new portrait oil painting which I have entitled Maya.  This piece is a visual tribute to Russian American experimental avant garde film director Maya Deren. It is oil paint on board and the size is 18 inches wide by 24 inches tall.  It was completed in April 2011. Inquiries about the […]

Post #1031 – The Way It Was

About a year and a half ago, I got an email from an old friend, Michael Sanchez, asking if I’d like to work on an album cover for an upcoming EP by his band, The Way It Is.  Originally planned as a vinyl release for first quarter 2010, I was super stoked on the project […]

Post #1030 – Playing on the Waves

Playing on the Waves  is a piece of cut paper collage art using images taken from vintage magazines and other ephemera that are hand cut with an xacto knife and then dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original is roughly 16 inches wide by 20 inches high and was completed December 2010. […]

Post #1029 – In Adhesion

I finished a couple of new collages especially for the show at Fringe. In Adhesion  is a piece of cut paper collage art using images taken from vintage magazines and other ephemera that are hand cut with an xacto knife and then dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original is roughly 6 […]

Post #1023 – Lost Interview?

Sometime toward the end of 2009, I got an email from the folks over at Artprojekt requesting an interview for their blog, followed by 5 short questions. In all honesty, I took a few months before finally getting around to responding and, although I was told it would go live sometime last spring, it most […]

Post #1020 – Radiant Children

I finally had a chance to sit down and watch the new Basquiat documentary, A Radiant Child, and really, really enjoyed it.  Very well done and insightful – the bebop sound track was on point and the vibe of the whole thing just seemed really spot on.  And I liked how they tracked back to […]

Post #1001 – Automatic Amnesia

Automatic Amnesia Wow – hard to believe we’ve finally broken the 1000th post mark.  Close to 6 years on, we’re really putting in the milage.  Thanks for sticking around. So, mark your calendars – the opening reception/celebration for my October solo show at the Slingluff Gallery will be on Saturday, October 2nd.  The show is […]

Post #989 – The Dawn or My Appeal

I finished another new painting recently, for my show at the Slingluff Gallery in Philadelphia this October. This one’s called The Dawn Or My Appeal and is 16 inches wide by 8 inches tall and is oil paint on canvas. The original painting has been sold and is no longer available. And, if you haven’t […]

Post #976 – Banksy

I’ve been a big fan of Banksy since first hearing about him 7 or 8 years ago.  The guy’s approach, sense of humor, context and general commentary on society is always spot on and he’s easily one of the most important artists to come along in the past decade.  Anyway, I finally saw Exit Through […]
