Post Production Sketches

Sup Blog. I've been a little occupied and didn't post last week, but I can't exactly post the projects I'm currently on b/c they're either not done or aren't on their way to being published yet. That's no biggie, but I hate leaving you hanging. So something I've been doing lately is flipping through my sketchbook, experimenting with the little tidbits, throwing some random colors and seeing what happens. They're just fun experiments that keep my mind busy. Here are some of the ones that ended up on the sunnier side of the fence.

If you're curious, that baby is my niece Emily, who happens to kick ass.

That's about it for now. Back to work.

Outside of these doors is Fairview, NJ

Hey Blog, looks like this week is for photos. Right now I'm still working on a couple of things, including a contribution to Death + Taxes magazine and a big new piece inspired by the show I was just a part of. Something that I've realized is that I really want a show by myself right now.

My own egomania aside, here are the pics from the studio in northern New Jersey I've been talking about. I share it with fellow SVAers Ray Jones and Matt Barteluce, who guest star in some of these pics. They're amazingly cool people, and its pretty awesome sharing a space, even though I think I do an absurd amount of BSing.

Two things should be noted. First, Matt had the space first and was gracious enough to let Ray and myself join in. Second, there are TONS of random things lying about the studio, which makes it very cool to visually wander around. Also, the ceiling is really high, which accommodates the tack-board-wall big enough for an American Gladiator. A few of the pics aren't the same size, because I forgot to reset my camera for some of them like a moron.

This last photo is something that Matt and I did in a drunken stupor.

See ya next week Blog.

"If yall wanna party like we do..."

Hey Blog. This weekend was a non-stop party-fest of galactic proportions. Not really, but it did involve a lot of BBQ combined with looking at fireworks while sitting in traffic for the Lincoln Tunnel. July 4th was a good follow up to the festivities from Thursday. A lot of people showed up and the music was pretty great. If there's one silver lining in Michael Jackson's death, its that parties sound awesome right now.

Also, many thanks to my friend Matt Okpych who was on hand with his camera taking some shots of myself and the other artists that participated (because I wouldn't want to do it):

Great night and hopefully I'll have an opportunity to do it again soon. Till later Blog.

P.S. The Altpick Awards have begun their call for entries featuring the banner I designed, get on that.
