Forgot to mention this earlier, but this Saturday Vancouver’s brand new HOT ART wet CITY Pop-Up Gallery will be opening their Big Lebowski inspired art exhibit. This is their first exhibit, and will run until September 30.
You can RSVP if you’re in the area right here on their Facebook page.
Graphic Designer Chris Bentzen is the creator of HAWC, and his gallery featuring pop-art and fan art themed shows deserves some major love!
Oh, yeah and my little dude will be on display there as well!

It’s that time of year again.
Way back in 2009 I decided I was going to start drawing after not picking a pencil for a good 10 years,give or take. If you’re an artist you know it can a solitary enterprise. Not saying that’s all bad, but it helps to have some company of sorts. Some background music, maybe the tv playing, or even,well, a podcast. If you’re going to be sitting behind a desk for long hours you need something to stimulate your mind.
After being referred to the podcast Tank Riot, I must say it’s been a constant companion in my artistic journeys thus far. When hosts Viktor,Tor and Sputnik asked the listeners to draw what they thought they really looked like, I had to indulge them. So every year I create a new one, and this year I used the Marx Brothers as inspiration. Don’t ask to explain what’s going on in the poster, just check out the other works on the Artistic License page. (There’s a great Marx Brothers episode you can listen to as well) This one’s for you gentlemen!
I mentioned this on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but I might as well make it an official post. This wonderful book above is now available worldwide, and if you’re a fan of this movie you should not hesitate to pick it up. It’s a wonderfully written 200+ pages with an amazing collection of photos,essays and artwork. Which includes myself on page 104!
Jenny M. Jones has created an essential reading companion to the Big Lebowski. I’m very proud to grace the pages of this book, and bravo to Jenny and all involved in this undertaking. The book is available pretty much everywhere, more info here.
If you’ve ever been remotely interested in seeing how I work, or what I’m drawing then this is your chance to watch me in action. Since I finally have an HD cam, I thought it was time to broadcast my long delayed pet project, The Thirsty Inkwell. Join me as I drink beverages, listen to music and create artwork. All at once. Starting this Tues the 17th on Ustream. BYOB.
It’s back, it’s bad, and it’s in full color.
In this poster I have a movie starring Stifler from American Pie, another amazing effort from the legendary HK cinema director Tsui Hark, a movie directed by Bobcat Goldwaith (YES!) and Ti West’s latest reshaping of what we know as the American horror film. Enjoy and spread the word. Starting June 22 every Friday evening 9:30pm at Red River Theatres of Concord,NH.
It’s been a while since my last post as I have been busy with several projects. This is a sneak peak of an illustration I did that will appear somewhere soon to be announced. How’s that for being specific? For now enjoy three of my favorite things. Spacewomen,1950s aliens and rocketships. Nostalgia, you had me at hello.
Following in the footsteps of 2010′s successful and critically applauded An Evening of Steampunk Theatre, Producer John Herman and Co are back with new theater anthology this March. An Evening of Apocalyptic Theatre features a whole new lineup of plays that will take you to the brink of human existence. There will be artwork inspired by the plays and even a whole soundtrack of music. So in short, another amazing collection of NH talent all coming together to benift charity.
Here’s my bit, the above poster. Coming this March at the Players’ Ring in Portsmouth,NH. Be there!
This one’s for you Henry Bemis…
From it’s humble start this August of 2011, Red River Theatres Xtreme Friday Night Film Series has officially carried over into it’s fourth month.Facilites Manager Barry Steelman took a risk with this kind of programming but his film choices have been on point, showcasing some the best independent genre films in the world. All in your backyard NH, where no other theater would touch these titles outside of Boston. It’s been a pleasure to create these posters and I hope you will join me on the 25th for Rare Exports, only in Concord at NH’s premiere indy theater.
