Halloween Spirit

Getting into the mood of the season of late, though this image hails from almost a year ago when we had one of the last fundraisers at LaunchPad which was Halloween themed. In a frenzy, I distracted myself from actual jobs and set about creating multiple decorations for the event. This piece was completed with Sharpie and acrylic on a long piece of plastic almost 5 feet tall. I made it up as I went and it was a fun distraction from the more calculated, composed images I was working on on paper.

Reel It In 45 cover

   A few months back I was commissioned once again by my pal Nikhil P. Yerwadekar to create artwork for a 45 vinyl release from his band, Low Mentality. Coming up is their release show this Sunday where you could purchase the vinyl for the first time.
  I've assembled some images here of the process which began rather loose and cartoony in the rough stages and swiftly developed into the territory Nikhil was looking to explore with a specific request for bright, tropical-inspired colors for the otherwise more somber, gray tone of the original ink drawing.
   The largest change was to omit the mermaid's visibility in the water, an alteration that he thought made the scene more mysterious and worthy of a double-take.
   It was fun to work with Nikhil again and if you can make it, I suggest you come on out to the release show on Sunday.

Dick Cheney: Airing Grievances

The aptly named former Vice President has been seeing a little more sun these days to let us know that he's not that big of an Obama supporter, specifically when it comes to Iraq.
