This past weekend was the opening of my little solo show, Strange As It Is! A tribute to the circus and sideshow. A huge, HUGE thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening to support the show and my work-as always, it absolutely means the world. After spending these past couple of months trying to meet a goal of fifteen new pieces, it felt awesome to see everything hanging and come together. Below and above are all of the images from the show, both large and small. The show and paintings will hang for a month, so be sure to stop by Dream in Plastic if you happen to be in Beacon, NY! I'm also told the remaining paintings will be available in their online shop for purchase (or you can contact them for more info and pricing!) ♥

With Halloween just a week away, I decided to have a limited edition, small run print made of a new painting, Bloody Mary. The piece will be sold in my shop until November 1st! Above is a really fun piece I painted for an art show, Something Spooky, at Guzu Gallery in Austin TX. There are some amazing artists involved in the show and if you're in the area, be sure to stop by! Show hangs until November 25th.
Below are two new cover images released this week, one for Red Sonja issue 7 and another for Archie issue 652 (out in January). I had so much fun with the retro concert poster/cover for the Archie issue. Working out all the little details and characters, the records and instruments-and of course, Josie and the Pussycats (my favorites!)!!. A big thanks to Rob Harrigan for laying in some beautiful custom letters on the cover for me!
It's been a hectic and busy fall, with a few neat projects on the way into 2014. Aside from work-work, I've been painting away on new pieces for my show next month. It's been a real challenge painting not only batches of monthly covers and assignments, but also coming up with new sketches and paintings. I'll be posting a little preview of some of the new work for the show in the next week or so! Until then, wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween!!

I know I'm forgetting a few, but I wanted to post a couple of cover images released this month. Above is a super fun HIM cover I painted for PPG issue 4 (IDW). Below, Red Sonja #6 (Dynamite). And a few My Little Pony covers (IDW), for issue 14 (Hearth's warming cover) and 11(Cadence and Twilight).
I'm also pretty excited to finally talk about a super fun comic project I've contributed to. I'll be a guest artist on the new Hello Kitty/Sanrio comics VIZ is publishing. I've painted a few one page gag strips and art for the book "Delicious", you can read a little more about the project at MTV Geek. Hopefully I can post a little preview of the art soon!

Over the past couple of months I’ve been hard at work on a little collection of new original pieces I’m very excited about. They’ll all be making their debut at Strange As It Is, a painted tribute to the sideshow and circus, opening November 9th at Dream In Plastic gallery and boutique in Beacon, New York ( Opening reception from 6-9, which I hope you’ll join me for! ). I’ll be posting little peeks and previews from some of the pieces leading up to the show through my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Quick post with a few covers to share. First up is a cover for MLP #7, out last week, and Red Sonja #2, out in August (I think). Both pieces were a joy to paint. Lately, I've been painting as fast as my hands can handle-which has been averaging a cover a week. That being said, many more covers are in the hopper and will be shared over the next few months...including one new cover gig in particular I'm really excited about! Also, hope to be able to share a really fun and super cute comic project I recently got to work on-more on that as soon as it gets announced.
Aside from the everyday work, I've get a few cool art shows I'm participating in. One of which is next month at Gallery Nucleus. A preview shot of my contribution is up on the site and I'll share more info and the full image of the piece as the show approaches. This November, I'll have a little solo art show at Dream in Plastic! I picked a theme months ago and can't wait to share more info and images of the paintings. All work will be available for purchase through the gallery. Below is a peek of what's to come...
Due to my work load and scheduling, commission requests will be closed until further notice. If I currently owe you a piece, I'll be getting the remaining pieces painted and completed over the next three months. Selected pieces of original art will be available (updated monthly) for purchase in my store for time time being :)
