New work

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Howdy people! Soooo, below are a couple things I wanted to share with you all. They are recent works I’ve made. Enjoy….

Tomorrow night at the United States Art Authority, No Comply’s Second Annual Board Design Contest will be taking place put on by Art Seen Alliance and of course, No Comply. I’ve seen a few entrees from a couple pals and I gotta say, I have been blown away by them. Here are my two submissions for the contest.

Here is something I submitted for The Screamer Company’s latest art zine titled “FOUR.” The release party for FOUR will take place on July 31 at TSC headquarters.

Lastly, a while back I designed an album cover for the Hope Campaign’s tribute album. Well that album is out now and you can view the tracks and purchase it here. Below are a couple pictures of the design.


Well, I’m outta here. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Friday Art: Chami’s Board

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Recently wife picked up a little nash board for daughter at a thrift store.

The size was perfect but the graphic on the back was not so perfect.

I asked daughter what she wanted me to paint on her board in place of the not-so-cool graphic and she told me “A pupcake and a horse.”

She helped me strip the back of the old graphic.

Then I sketched it out.

And voila. Pictures of daughter riding it to follow.

Friday Art: The Chase

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

My pal Tony recently had a little baby girl. He commissioned me to make a painting for the little peanut’s room. I had a lot of fun making it.

I hope she grows up to wear top hats and mustache bow ties.

Tony is co-owner of print addiction, they throw art show/parties and print artists’ work on tees. There’s one going on as I type this. So if you are in the Austin area and want to get a The Amazing Hancock Bros t-shirt and possibly buy some of their art, you should go. You should probably leave now. Have fun kids.

Package from Kelly

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

I got a package from my good pal and fellow art/design nerd, Kelly Thacker. I met Kelly at Paul Frank years ago. She still works there and makes awesome stuff.

A couple weeks ago I was at Urban Outfitters and I came across a wallet Kelly had designed for the  oh-so-cool Toddland (also an ex pf comrade). I was so excited to see her fun wallet that I took these pics in the store:

I’d mentioned to her I was in need of a laptop sleeve AND that I REALLY liked her wallet and she was nice enough to send me a huge package including both of those things and more!! I even got a note from one of my favorite people/artists ever, Parker Jacobs! You may not know this but most of my style is ripped off from… I mean, “influenced” by Parker.

There was also a sweet zine, put together by PF Art Director, Mike Smith, from an art show that Kelly was in that her co-worker Alex Funderburk curated. Here are a few of my favorite pages:

Talented bunch eh? Thanks so much Kelly!! Way too kind of you.

NEW(S)

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Happy new year everybody! There is some new stuff going on around here lately. First off, you may have noticed, we updated the theme here on our blog. It really is nothing fancy. It’s actually the default wordpress theme, called Kubrick, with a fun header I designed featuring our new logo, but I like it. Less is more, right? I’m also, excited that comments should now be working again. The last theme disabled comments for some reason and I was just never nerdy enough to figure out why. Somebody please comment on here so I know comments are working again.

Also new this year is our new store hosted by BigCartel. We’ll be updating our ol’ Etsy store with the same items for those of you that like to hang out over there. I’ll be posting different things in the stores real soon aside from tees, like drawings, zines, etc… eh, hopefully.

What I’m most excited about for this new year is my new art studio. It’s run by the fine folks at Okay Mountain. It’s right around the corner from home. I plan on being there daily, though this first week back from the long, laaaazy break was a little more demanding than I had hoped, stifling my chances to be studio bound daily. I did make it down there one evening to organize some materials, coat some panels, and draw these dudes.

So far we’re off to a great start to a new year over here at casa Muñoz. Here’s a new year and lots of drawing, making, and loving.

Cheers.

FRIDAY ART: HOPE Farmers Market Poster

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Have you heard of HOPE? They’re awesome. They help other people EVERYWHERE! We (mostly Giselle because she’s AWESOME) have been tabling the new HOPE farmers market here in East Austin recently. It’s pretty awesome. Andi, who runs HOPE, asked me to be the very first artist to make a poster for their poster series. I agreed and started sketching ideas right away.

I liked a few of the ideas but I LOVED good ol’ Mon holding a flower, so I chose to develop that one further. This is the drawing I did on vellum.

I scanned that in and colored it up and the rest is my story.

Come by the farmers market this sunday from 11am to 3pm to say hello and maybe get a poster.

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.

starlite_chami

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.
