Illustration for Restaurant Hollow Nickel

I was asked to do a tshirt illustration for a great local restaurant Hollow Nickel. The true story behind the name is great. Basically, back in the early 1950′s a paperboy collecting for the Brooklyn Eagle dropped a nickel that fell on the ground and turned out to be hollow. Inside was microfilm from the KGB. The whole story can be read here, it’s pretty nuts, and very cool that the name was derived from local noir. They made tshirts of the design for the Atlantic Antic this year, and are likely still available at the restaurant. (494 Atlantic Ave).

Robot Painting

I was included in a group artshow who’s theme was “the future that never was”. It was basically the future as the 1950’s saw it. It was at 8 of Swords, a great tattoo studio/art gallery that has been kind enough to include me in some of their anniversary group shows. I did this robot guy, with my trademark Brooklyn landscapes behind it, and the the ol’ Mickey Mouse middle finger gag just for laughs. I was almost relieved that it didn’t sell so I could get some good pics of it. Anyone interested, get @ me, but my 3 year old is really into robots, so you better really want it!
