Wet Hot American Summer Show! (and website update)

The Wet Hot American Summer Show opened up at Gallery1988, and my "Camp Firewood" map sold!  Yahoo!  I love doing these maps - they're a little bit of a nightmare, but gratifying when they're done.  My "History of the World" buddy, Dr. Owen Sherwood, contributed these guys (below) which look pretty sweet too - and if you want the Michael Showalter as Alan Shemper, too bad.  It's already gone.  Check out all the piece on the Gallery1988 site.

And . . . I have updated my site with some new goodies if you want to see, including some more of the History of the World show, as well as new editorial.

Turtle Opening!

It was pretty jam packed in a tight space, but a lot of fun to see the show on a First Friday in Philly.  Thanks to the Autumn Society and Brave New Worlds! (mine's near the middle of the wall in the spot - nice to have such a good spot!!)

Memorial Day Weekend - Lets Go Mets!

I almost forgot to post this!  I had a great memorial day weekend with my fam going out for a lovely dinner on Saturday night, and then watching the Mets lambaste the Phillies on Sunday followed by a sweet BBQ on my cousin James' and his fiancee Emily's rooftop deck in Astoria.  It was such a pounding by the Mets that I even found time to squeeze in a four inning drawing of the stadium . . . I thought it would be quicker, but man - stadiums are complicated, and baseball is glorious and therefore distracting.  I've been back in the city quite a bit since moving to Philly and let me tell you, New York's a nice place to visit.  Even made me a little homesick.  That is, until I came home to my big studio, AC'd apt, and did laundry IN the apartment.  Adios homesickness.  If only the Mets and Phillies could do a sort of exchange program for a season or two . . .

Turtle Power!!

I'm happy to be a part of the Autumn Society's (a Philly illo collective) "Shell-Shock - A TMNT Art Show and Tribute" opening this Friday at Brave New Worlds, a great comic book store in Old City, Philadelphia.  I really wanted o re-explore the sort of dry brush I did with the "Heavyweights" (below) in a little bit more of a serene setting with a little softer palette.  Why are they doing laundry?  Well, I do love nude turtles, but I really just thought they would have interesting laundry - those colored strips, and it's such a drudge job for teenagers, and I figured not a lot of people would do "slice of life" type images.  Just another day in the sewers . . .
