Haunted Hop Vol.2: HALLOWEEN NIGHT PARTY!


Well, this is the most text I have ever put on a poster, and probably will be that way for the rest of my time. Maybe. There's a lot going on here so don't forget to take a break, get some water and food, and then come back to digest the rest of this information. Had a lot of fun with this one. Especially drawing little versions of Ian Svenonius, Kid Congo Powers, Howie Pyro, Shannon and The Clams, and of course, the one and only, Jonathan Toubin. Here's a LINK for tickets. Process pics and details below.







You know I had to throw a C.H.U.D. in there. 


See ya, dude!

Return of The A-Frame!



Several months ago someone ran off with Gimme! Coffee's a-frame and it's been a hard pill to swallow. Well, not really. I actually think it's funny someone carried that thing off. It was not light. It's probably in a dump somewhere or smashed to pieces in some dark, lonely, cold alley way somewhere but, I can always dream that someone was so in love with one of my drawings that they took it home and placed it there so they can admire it for years to come. I can dream, can't I?

Anyways, Gimme! got a new one and I'm back at it with drag queens and serial killers.

Neon Jesus


Blast from the not-so-distant past right here. This was the last piece I wrapped up for the 2 person show "Bathhouse" my friend Travis Winters and I had at Corning Community College in March 2017. I cut it so close to the line that I had no time to scan this piece in before I had to throw it in the car and head off to hang it. So, here it is: Neon Jesus. I think after visiting museums and churches in Europe for 3 months I felt this compulsion to do my own take on Christ on the cross. I really thought there were process sketches and doodles that I wanted to share but I couldn't find anything besides these photos of my coloring process. Anyways, enjoy!

The Haunted Hop!


New poster I cooked up for Jonathan Toubin and Kid Congo Powers's Haunted Hop tour kicking off on October 25th in Chicago. We decided very early on that since Kid Congo had been a member of The Cramps, that doing a homage to one of their album covers, and possibly one of the most iconic in the history of music, was the perfect direction. Check HERE for all their tour dates. All the highs, lows, ups and downs of the whole dang process lay below. Huge THANKS again to Jonathan Toubin!

Shadow Dancing


Whipped up a quick one for Jonathan Toubin's Soul Clap & Dance Off at Baby's All Right in Williamsburg this Saturday the 23rd. Jonathan wanted to let his fabulous shadow dancers get a moment in the spotlight so I did my best James Bond/In like Flint sort of homage for this one. There will also be a 16mm projections from Spencer Bewley going on during the dancing so it was very fitting for the shadow dancers to be featured on this illustration.

Like a Modern Cowboy


Something new-ish. Thinkin' there's going to be a triptych happening out of this piece. More will eventually follow until the exciting story is complete.

New York Night Train Day


New poster for a special curated day of music from the amazing Jonathan Toubin. New York Night Train Day will be taking place on September 10th at the 15th annual South Street Seaport Music Festival. The recently reformed The Make-Up will be headlining so, of course none other than Ian Svenonious is gracing the poster. Thanks again to Jonathan Toubin.

Everything Must Go!


New one for fun. July was a fairly quiet month in terms of freelance work so it was nice to dive back into the pit of personal projects. Still trying to incorporate that love of all things neon into the usual way I work.
