Here are some pictures of the progression my most recent print has made, which I unfortunately was not able to work on this past weekend but for good reason. A job opportunity in LA came very suddenly and out of the blue for which I had to rush down to be interviewed on Friday...The job could be a very awesome opportunity. Further information will be known by the end of this week....Until then, keep your eye open to behold the amazing.....

Just finished and submitted my final design for my good friend, Aaron, who is going to be playing a concert in New York at the end of the month. If you are in the NY area on January 31st I highly suggest making your way down to the Lower East Side and catching this performance, my man knows how to put on a show. He is Aaron David Gleason, they are ADG and Band.

A little while ago I was working on this ink-pen drawing; as I had recently accepted my fascination with the most complex body part, the face, I challenged myself to fill a page with faces. I ended up throwing in a quick self-portrait in there, making it seem a little more personal. Here is where I finished. At that time I felt I had met my challenge however, coming across the drawing again today and taking the time to scan it I have begun to second guess myself....so I post it here, for you to see...what do you think world? Let it be??? or Work it some more??
Check out this Charles Burns Interview published in Vice, it's an extensive interview with the artist about his new comic book and his process behind the creation of his books and the evolution in his style, as made evident in his new book, X'ed Out.
The last few days I've been kickin it in LA with my brother, aka DJ Jayceeoh, and decided to work on a couple possible logos for him to hold on to for whatever...I wanted to put these sketches up to see what people think before I put the finishing touches on them....let me know what ya think!
Here's a new piece that I recently started for a group show that apparently keeps getting pushed back every time the set date comes close...the title of the show is "We Are All Animals", it's supposed to be in Santa Cruz, CA sometime in the next decade at the Felix Kulpa Gallery...at least I'll have a lot of time to work on more pieces.
These are all photos of the image on the stone before being etched, unfortunately the studio closed for the holidays before I got a chance to processes it after the first etch...we will see how it looks in a couple of weeks....

That's text is as much of the beginning of Allen Ginsberg's Howl as could fit.
Thats right, I scratched all that text out (backwards) with an x-acto
^^ Finished stone shots, before the first etch. vv
Ive been working on this print since mid summer...what you see here is a three layer lithographic print, all layers were drawn freehand with no real predetermined plan (something I do very rarely, probably why this has been taking so long) The final "key" layer will be printed in black from a woodblock relief.
