September 2012


I’m almost finished up with this next comics project. In the meantime I’ve decided to put it up as a webcomic. I’ll be updating my blog with a page a week so I hope you check up on it from time to time!

Here’s a couple more pages. One of my favorite panels in this comic is the “Haroomph” on one 18.

Did the Field Trip New York day. It was a really fun day with good friends. Not a lot of photos were taken, but thought it would be fun to post the couple I got.

1) WNYC Transmitter Park  2) Brooklyn Ice-Cream Factory  3) Commercial Street Cat Village

4) Newton Creek Nature Walk  5) Astro-Fred!  6) Black Rabbit Bar

I’ve always had a love for modern/post-modern/contemporary art. It’s odd, because most of the stuff I create is pretty representational. I don’t get too abstract, expressionist, or conceptualist with what I do personally, though it is the stuff I tend to be most moved by. So yeah, I’m a sucker for Warhol and Basquiat, Sol LeWitt, and very much for Franz Kline. And absolutely, to a stupid degree, I have a love for Julian Schnabel‘s work. I like his post-modern/contemporary work of the 90’s and nowadays over the oddly-representational plate paintings of the 80’s he got known for, or even his portraits of today. (Though, heh, I do like his contemporary portraits as well. What can I say? He’s got me.)

Anyway, I had started a painting sometime last year. It’s based off a photograph Schnabel had taken–a self-portrait in front of one of his own paintings, Large Girl with No Eyes. I stopped working on it last November, and it sat in my room unfinished. I got busy with other stuff, learned to ignore it. I recently noticed it again, and over the last couple nights, worked at it.

Glad it’s finally done. Now I gotta get to some of the other unfinished canvases.

This is totally last minute, but tomorrow, Friday September 7th at 7pm-11pm, Gallery5Arts is having an opening for their annual &@$#! comics exhibition. If you’re in Richmond, Virginia, this’ll be a fun event to check out. I’ve got a few prints in the exhibition. And Chris Pitzer from AdHouse Books is gonna be there (he’s just a way good dude). Also, there’s some amazing artists with prints and originals, including one of my personal favorites, Farel Dalrymple.

I did a small interview with them a bit ago, if you want to check it out, it’s at http://gallery5arts.org/comics/?p=292

Alright, gotta get back to listening to the new David Byrne & St. Vincent album.
