PRINT+ADDICTION presents: NICE TRY

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

My good pal Ryan Rhodes and I are currently working on an art show/print party we will be having at Industry Print Shop THIS Friday from 6-9pm. We are calling the show “Nice Try.”

These parties are always so much fun. Nice Try will be especially radical for a number of reasons… get your fingers out and lets go over them. You will be able to drink free beer, groove to sultry soul sounds by the great “DJ Gibb, buy T-shirts to customize with our designs, buy affordable artwork we are working on right now, AND you’ll be able to laugh at us…. right in front of us.

You can see more details and reserve a free shirt here.

Here are a couple of glimpses into us hard at work.


Jeremy Fish + Austin

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

Jeremy Fish is an amazing illustrator/artist that is currently on a mobile art tour he is calling “The Road Less Traveled.” About a week ago he came to Austin to make a 21-color screen print with my heroes, The Decoder Ring that pretty much took ONE WEEK. The print is finished and you can view and purchase it here. He also came to town to set up a one-night art show at Okay Moutain Gallery. That night is tonight. Don’t miss it.

On a super nerdy side note – Jeremy was recently at OKMT Studios and though I didn’t meet him, our vehicles got to spend some time together. How rad is that van!?!

Friday Art: El Hippie Guapo (2 shows this weekend)

Friday, December 4th, 2009

I will be showing some art in 2 venues this weekend.  Tonight from 6 to 10pm is the opening of Mexic-Arte Museum’s Mix N Mash show which I made a super new and fun piece for. Tickets are $25 and my buddies James Huizar, Randy Muniz, and Tony Diaz will also have pieces in this show. Nothing but 12×12 inch panels here.  For a full list of the artists and all the details click here.

Here is the piece I made for the Mix N Mash show. Click here to view the process shots.

Tomorrow the Maranda Pleasant Gallery will be holding their annual 12×12 box show with every piece priced at $100 . Some of the proceeds will go to Explore Austin. There is no cover for this exhibit and you can even go before the madness from 10am to 6pm to do some early purchasing. The party is from 6pm to 10pm. A few friends will be showing work here as well including: Jeremy Burks, Will Bryant, and Zach McDonald. Apparently 25 pieces have already sold! So go, go, GOOOO!

Stay warm this weekend err’body.

FRIDAY ART: Laser Jog

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Tomorrow is Halloween. This is very exciting news. It’s especially exciting news to my 3.5 year old daughter who is dressing up as  Starlite, the magical flying horse, from the Rainbow Brite books she loves so much. She’s been talking for months about dressing up as Starlite and tomorrow her wish comes true.

Almost immediately after she decided she would dress up as Starlite she started telling Giselle that she could dress up as Lala Orange and that I should be Buddy Blue. These are 2 of the other characters in the Rainbow Brite books that she loves so much. They are part of the Colored Kids gang. Sounds pretty controversial, right? It’s pretty innocent, I think. Here is what the Colored Kids look like, with Lala and Buddy circled.

Last year for halloween I looked like I was ready to hit up the gay clubs and this year shouldn’t be any different. Giselle will probably look very beautiful, as usual.

She’s going to love me for posting that.

Oh one last thing, tomorrow night at Domy Books I will be showing a couple drawings for their annual Monster Show. Daily Juice will be there providing delicious potent punches. Mmmmmm. You should make it a point to stop by to see all the spooky monsters that will be on the walls. Here is what my drawings will look like tomorrow night, though they should have less-to-no grass behind them.

Sex and Death Art Show

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I was invited to be a part of The Sex and Death show over at the The Fifth Gallery in downtown Austin. The opening was last night but the work will be up until November 13th when there will be a closing reception.

My favorite piece in the show was by none other than my good buddy, Jeremy Burks. He is what they call “mad talented.”

Tonight is the opening of the 14th Young Latino Artists art show at Mexic-Arte in Downtown Austin. My buddy Randy Muñiz will have work in the show. Randy is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. He’s incredibly talented not only at his craft but also at growing a beard. Here are a couple of Randy’s pieces that will be in the show.

    CEWEBRITIES

    My buddy Ariel Erestingcol just had an art show in Los Angeles. Ariel is a unique dude with tons of creativity and awesome theories about art and beyond. I wish I could have made it out to his opening but I could not. So, really, I can’t write about his show. However, the great Arlo Eisenberg, creator of streetwear line GOST , gives a great little review right over here.

    And for his subject matter he chose people (and animals) who have achieved some measure of fame, dubious or otherwise, through the internet.  Hence the name of the show, “CeWEBrities.”

    Congratulations Ariel. The work looks great! The show runs through May 30th at the Sabina Lee Gallery.

    This is an art critic that was going to try to go check out the show on Saturday. Everytime I see this puppet he is far from sober. He told me he lost his legs in Nam.
