I haven’t posted anything in quite awhile, I know! I’m trying my best to revise my website as soon as I can with new updates and such.. In the meantime, here’s a Commission I finished a couple months ago for Jerome. It’;s 24″X18″, pen and ink and black colored pencil on Bristol. He wanted a view of Brooklyn from where he lives, and zooming towards the east River and Manhattan in the background. I am always up for commissions, Personal work, illustration, logos, t-shirt designs, product design, never hesitate to get in touch about anything I can draw for you. Cheers!
In the meantime, if you want to see some current work, please follow me on instagram
and the gallery and shop
and always check the online shop for original work and Merchandise.
I will be creating a painting live for the Artworks Foundation’s Art of This World event this thursday, along with pals Mike Sorgatz , and Paul St. Savage, AKA Angry Eel (er, we’ll each be painting separate works) .
Tickets are still available, and there will be a few live art and performances going on. The art will be auctioned off at 9pm. It’s a great opportunity to bid on some great art and for a great cause. The event is 6pm-10, Thursday Nov 22nd, at Pillars 38, 518 West 38th street. Follow the links for more info.
Artworks is a great organization, they provide children and young adults suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and their siblings, access to creative and performing arts programs that encourage the use of the creative process as a vehicle for healing, communication, self-expression and personal development.
ArtWorks seeks to empower, validate, and honor these children by offering them the hands-on experience and materials with which to create, as well as the opportunity to publicly share their artistic accomplishments.
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).
I hand printed a bunch of Pint Glass gift boxes in the gallery the other day.
Free with any purchase of 4 or more glasses from my Brooklyn Landmark Pint Glass series. They are built so 4 pint glasses can be separated when box is closed.
While I was at it I used the screen to mess around with some other stuff, check out the gallery below and see, cheers-
I am not sure if what I need to finish will be done at this point, but here’s a peek-e boo of something that is done and done. A 4 pin set of the 4 bridges that lead to Brooklyn. These will be available at the show and eventually elsewhere- Cheers-
