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.

FRIDAY ART: Bigote Brown

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

My buddy Randy Muñiz, who I’ve written about before, asked me if I wanted to make a skull for a mural project that he, and his friend James, are putting together at the Mexic-arte museum. I said, “sure” and then I drew this.


I was pleased with this drawing and proceeded to Ink it up and make it clean, but it was losing all it’s magic. I’ve mentioned before that I am a fan of pencil sketches over the finished black lined drawings. There is something so honest about pencil drawings. So, what I did was just blow up my sketch to 3 feet and painted right over the black and white copy. Here is what that looks like.


Here is a picture of my daughter standing next to Bigote Brown.


Bigote Brown will be wheatpasted on the side of the museum next to the skulls of 6 other artists. Come out to the Viva La Vida Fest, celebrating dia de los muertos, tomorrow in Downtown Austin to check it all out.

FRIDAY ART: Conversation Piece

Friday, September 11th, 2009

My buddy Maseman was kind enough to include me into a group show that he and the rest of The Screamer Company are putting together. The show is titled Conversation Piece and will take place on Friday, September 25th from 6-10 pm at The United States Art Authority . Here is the official poster.


I saw some of the other pieces that will be in the show today when I dropped off my pieces and, boy, are they good!

It was so much fun getting some pieces together for this show. Here are some sneak peeks of the work I did.




I hope to see you on the 25th!

Here’s a sailor man I doodled up.


Have I ever told you guys that I dressed up as a gay sailor for Halloween last year? I won the grand prize at work AND I got second place at Mr. Natural’s halloween costume contest.

Here’s picture taken at Domy Books of myself with my beautiful wife and my confused daughter.


FRIDAY ART: Sketchbook Fun

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Here are some recent drawings, more like doodlings, that I made with pencil and prisma markers and ink and magic… no, not Magic Jonson, the other magic.

FRIDAY ART: Matt The Electrician

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Have you heard of Matt the Electrician before? He’s an electrician turned singer/songwriter/genius and he is pretty awesome (his wife Kathie is pretty rad too) . Matt hired me to make him a fun t-shirt to go along with his latest, freshest sound that he could sell while he’s touring the west coast. Here is what I came up with:

I printed these on un-wrinkled silver American Apparel tees but printed an extra one for myself on a green, wrinkly, shirt.

I recently created this dude. His name is Beardo Strange. I’m still developing him and he’ll probablly look stranger than this but for now, here is Beardo as a rough draft. Enjoy.

FRIDAY ART: Black Cock Rising

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

I’m back!! The last 2 weeks have been pretty hectic. We moved to east 6th street and we are loving it! Now, i’m ready to share some work with you.

My friend and amazing artist, Jeremy Burks, told me about a call for art that local Austin band Black Cock put out in order to get some art on the walls of The Mohawk for a music/art show they will be hosting there in a few days. Thank you Jeremy!

Here is what I made with acrylics and spray paint on a wood panel:
