Awesome awesomeness, for sale!

April 18th, 2010

The Philadelphia Free Library Festival was this past weekend. Eric Wight and I had a little drawing show on Saturday for which I printed up this two-color poster. We didn’t sell out at the festival so I’ve got them up on Etsy now. Get one while they hot.

Mash-up of Awesomeness: the poster it is printed

pick a color

April 13th, 2010

Eric Wight and I are doing a program at the Philadelphia Free LIbrary Festival this weekend and we’re printing a poster for the occasion. However, I’ve not been able to choose a particular color combibation. So with a few days left before I print these, I thought I’d ask some opinions. A caveat is that the nature of screen printing dictates that colors aren’t always 100% predictable, and another is that we might end up making more than one version. Just curious what y’all think.

Scribbling Monster Diary for Galison/Mudpuppy

July 2nd, 2009

Last year I made this cover design for Galison/Mudpuppy for a diary. I just received a box of these books and they are just terrific. Nice 6 x 4.24 inch hardcover with a little padlock and two keys. They tell me that the journals are out there and on the Galison website here.

I also made a puzzle for Mudpuppy a while back, and I have another puzzle coming out this next winter. Stay tuned for that.

would you buy this?

December 4th, 2008

I’ve been urged by a few to get it together and start selling stuff on Etsy.com. Little paintings, maybe some screenprints (you know a good screenprinter?) and that kind of thing. I have a thing coming up this February at the Main Line Art Center in Haverford where I have some space to sell a few paintings. So I’m going to put together a series of monsters or robots for that event.
My question is, and you don’t really have to answer it, is whether people would buy such a thing as a painting of a monster. Or a robot. Or a car or funny airplane. Or birds or octopi. You know, that what I make. Acrylic on wood or hardboard.
I’ll post it here when this gets done and you can start spending your money at me. Likely just in time for the New Year. Stay tuned.

Some personal work

January 18th, 2007

So, it’s not like nothing has been happening here at the studio. Rather, I’m working on several large book and game projects that are weeks or months away from completing, and I’m not allowed to show anything off yet. But I have been doing some painting when I can. These are an extension of the robots I posted a few months ago. They were created as gifts for some friends and some nieces and nephews for Christmas. I like working away from Photoshop on these, and I like the b/w thing. I’m also thinking of making a book from the monster and little girl.
