Tex the T-Rex

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Tex is a T-rex that lives behind the Snake Farm in New Braunfels, Texas. Whatever you do don’t tell him he aint Texan. Only thing he loves more than Texas is his Texas pride.

Ok that’s all I’ve got at this hour. I drew this with a sharpie and my trustee brush pen.

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.

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.

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.”


Here is the drawing I did for the show.


you can view more photos from the opening night and other fabulous art submissions here. Big thank you to John Gomi and the rest of The Fifth Gallery.

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: 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.

picture-4Be sure to check Matt out on tour and pick up a shirt while your at it.

FRIDAY ART (late): Wade Bowen Tee

Monday, July 13th, 2009

My favorite things to draw and paint are silly colors and bright characters. I can doodle fun stuff all day long but unfortunately I don’t get paid to do that, or at least not yet ;) So my 9-5 is at a screen print shop called East End Ink. My duties include creating and recreating t-shirt and vehicle graphics, proofing artwork, color separating files, etc. Not always the fun-nest work but it pays the bills. We print all types of artwork for schools, organizations, bands, and my favorite… fraternities and sororities… they always know what they want.

So recently an order came across my desk to create some Affliction styled artwork for Texas Country Music singer Wade Bowen using just one color and including a guitar and some crosses. I used to freak out with orders like this but I’ve realized that with the right research and enough vellum I can tackle just about any request.

Behold the Wade Bowen Guitar and Crosses graphic mocked up on a V-neck. Doesn’t it just make you want to jump in the octagon and beat people up and stuff like that?


FRIDAY ART: The MONster next door

There has been a lot going on lately. Here is an illustration that helped me cope with stuff today. Enjoy the drawing and your weekends.
