Harvesting the goods

Happy fall, everybody. This year I am participating in Grand St. Arts' Boarded Up! exhibit again. This painting is currently slapped onto one of the exterior windows of their space in Albany, along with paintings by a bunch of other local artists. It's a cool exhibit, and great to be a part of an organization that has brought a lot to one of Albany's lower income communities.
The New Mayor | 36" x 48" | Acrylic on Wood Panel

This show will be up for a few months, and then the pieces will be auctioned off at the exhibit's closing party during the winter. Captain Capitol!

I also have three pieces in the Pink Nightmare show that opens this Saturday in Boston, at Orchard Skate Shop. This is a group show featuring a slew of my Silly Pink Bunny friends, and is being curated by Isaac McKay Randozzi, whose photos you should check out. If you are near Mission Hill this Saturday night, stop by the Orchard Shop at 1625 Tremont St. Get some!

Early Bird

Just finished painting these two cabinet doors for my cousins Boo and Kim. I have been really into drawing birds lately, maybe because it's finally warm enough outside that they actually show up in my yard. More birds to come on GTA in the next few weeks!

Roc City

If you are in the Rochester area this week, be sure to check out the latest edition of CITY, who hired me to do two illustrations for their issue announcing this year's Rochester Jazz Festival. Had a lot of fun working on these, and more of the imagery can be seen on their site.

Donuts vs. Nachos

Both are awesome. Who's hungry?

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Life has been busy, but good, and I've probably been spending more time outside than inside painting. Below are some pieces I did a few months back. These are currently on display at the Flavour Cafe in Troy, but available for sale.

I Make Donuts
| 24" x 6" | $120

I Make Nachos | 24" x 6" | $120

Also a final thanks to Erich Lehman, Surface Salon and 1975 for hosting my show in Rochester the last few months. I managed to sell a couple things, but more importantly played a small part in a great up-and-coming art community. New stuff is in the works, so keep your internet turned on. Who's bad.

Also thanks to cheese, grapes and cupcakes for helping feed everyone that night.

A Day in the Rock

I spent the day in Rochester yesterday, hanging the Sixes & Sevens show with Erich. Erich was a trooper, he had literally just pulled in from a night in DC and was ready to go.

Erich laying it down.

I was totally stoked to see some of Tony's new work too. The last thing I saw of his was an old muffler with a funny face painted on it, and that was like ten years ago.

Anyway, below are some previews of some of my stuff. I have 23 paintings in this show, and all are for sale. If you like French Fries and soda, I have a painting for you! Or maybe you like grumpy alien robots with scuba gear.

Get Totally Awesome | 16" x 48" | SOLD

If you are interested in purchasing any of these, contact Erich through the gallery's website - www.1975ish.com. The show will be up until the very end of May. Thanks so much to Erich and Leigh for setting this show up, and also thanks so Nate Pallace for coming in and taking pictures while we hung. I am totally geared up for getting down.

Sixes and Sevens

I am totally stoked to announce a show I will be participating in at 1975 in Rochester. Sixes and Sevens opens up on Friday, March 6th and will be a two-person show featuring me and Tony Bachiaciciahhahaiacahahiacci. Nothing is better than a Jewish guy and an Italian guy hanging their art in the same room, and I am grateful for the opportunity that my good friend and fellow nacho-lover Erich Lehman has given me to show in his space with Tony. Below are some little drawings I will be showing...More to come before the show.

Mi Amigo Large

Mi Amigo Large is a 2 ft. x 5 ft. painting I did last summer for Boarded Up at Grand St. Arts in Albany. The painting hung on the outside of their building for the summer, and then was auctioned off in September to help raise money for renovation of their space, which occupies an old church in downtown Albany. A whole bunch of local artists participated, and you can see all of the work here. Grand St. Arts is a truly grassroots organization, run by some totally awesome people, that has done some really cool and interesting events for the local community.

Last week I hung some stuff in the Flavour Cafe in Troy, so stop on by and peep it if you're in the neighborhood. Get some!
