Camera, Mask, Toy, Flask 

Still life of a Revere Eight Model 77 movie camera that I got at an antique store in Beacon New York, a mask from the play, Sleep No More, a toy from Kid Robot, and a gas tank flask.

Occupy Wall St.

Recently, I went to Zuccotti Park in the Financial District of New York City where the Occupy Wall Street protests are being held. It was the day before Halloween so some people were in costume, and others, not at all. There was also a drum circle with b-boys and b-girls gettin it in. Basically, there was a lot of character.

Overall, it was a lot calmer and more organized than I thought it'd be after seeing its portrayal on TV, in the newspapers, and online. There's definitely a difference between viewing it and actually being in the environment...

For E.

I found out sad news last week that one of my friends from years back passed away. E, the gentle giant/mean-lookin' teddy bear. You're the first person ever that put me on to the Roots and Erykah Badu's "You Got Me." I regret that our paths never crossed all these years, but I'm glad to have known you. You'll be missed.

Spidey found his MJ...

This weekend, I was (and still am) extremely honored to have been standing with the great Jeff Adams as he wed his equally amazing fiancee, Julie. These guys put on a super fun wedding party in every sense of the word. I'll post more pics as I get em in, because of two words: "superhero cufflinks"...oh, and  "Spider-Man Cake"...and "Eyvind Earle trees"...okay that 3 words. But, you get the idea... 

More pics to come, but in the meantime, here's a link to Jeff's website.

My Eggo

This is a gift made for a good friend. 

And in attempt to get out of being lazy and back into better routines, I used acrylics. Hopefully there'll be more "traditional" approaches to my work on the horizon.

The Little Red Hen

This illustration is based on the children's story, "The Little Red Hen." In it, the hen does all the work around the house while the other two are lazy and just sit around. I thought it'd be fun to put them in the fashion and settings of 1920's.

Triangle (composition) Below Canal

Also known as TriBeCa, where we had brunch Sunday morning. I love(d) coming down here--especially when I used to live much closer--because it's one of the more calming places in the city. Slightly more sophisticated than other places in Manhattan without being snobby. Everyone's comfortable and visibly less stressed out (or that could be due to the mimosas).

Riding bikes, pushing strollers, walking dogs, brunching--sure these things mix together in other neighborhoods, but only a few other places feel like TriBeCa...

Kendall vs. Dryer Monster

Here's a painted sketch of my niece, Kendall, versus the other monster from the laundry room. The monsters were created to answer the age old question: "What happened to my other sock?"

All Good Living Kids

Last year, I created some designs for "All Good Living Kids," a Bay Area, California-based kids clothing company. 

They just released their 2011 Spring/Summer promo video can be seen here. The "Lucy's Balloon" design can be seen at 1:16, 1:48, and various places throughout.

Ode to the Bodega

One of the things I miss about living in Brooklyn was a deli sandwich from the bodega down the street.

LAC: Dec. 2010

This was for one of the Lazy Artist Club challenges last December.

The topic was: "Favorite Memory of 2010."

Fellow LAC member and illustrator, Pope Phoenix suggested the topic of "Zombie Street Fighter" and I went with it. I wasn't really into the zombie genre until this year when TV series like "Dead Set" and "The Walking Dead" came out. But I've always loved the Street Fighter series--the designs were beautiful and the colors primary but with purpose (similar to Super Mario Bros.).

One day, maybe I'll post some SF2drawings from high school. But we'll see...

Also, thanks to the Fix's, Colin and Anne, for the zombie inspiration!

Seein' kinda Patton...

One of my favorite comedians, Patton Oswalt, as the subject here. He was the voice of Remy in Ratatouille, played Spence in "The King of Queens," and is a writer of comics and books.

A "slash" person (does this-slash-this-slash-this, etc.) aka "multi-talented."

We went to see the Broadway production of the Pee-Wee Herman Show and it was amazing to see a concept so out-of-the-box still holds up even today. After that, we saw Sylvain Chomet's "The Illusionist".

The poses, the silhouettes, and the comedic timing of both Paul Reubens and the characters of "The Illusionist" were definitely something to behold...

The Emperor's New Year...

New year, new changes--nothing out of this world or super drastic, just chipping away and aiming at progress...

This was inspired by the work of J.C. Leyendecker, Daniel Adel, and Peter de Seve.

O Cyclops, Where Art Thou?

Done for the "Cyclops" project for the Lazy Artists Club. "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" is one of my favorite all-time movies.
