Harold in Repose

Acrylic piece done for a group show called Crazy 4 Cult 2 at Gallery 1988 in LA. 100 artists have done works inspired by classic cult films. Opening reception is tonight from 7 - 11 and is hosted by Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier. Stop in if you're in the neighborhood:

7020 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90038
(South East corner of Melrose & LaBrea)

I promised a high school piece but the one I pulled onto my flash card today vanished. I'll find it again and post it this weekend.

A Little Process

In a halfhearted effort to answer those who asked that I demonstrate my process here are roughs for the two pieces posted down the page.

They were done digitally in low res on a Cintiq tablet. I printed them out to the size of the illustrations, then roughly transferred the sketches to the final board loosely by flipping them like animation paper and roughing out the paintings with a blue Colorase and then black Prismacolor. I did a little clean-up to the line drawing but worked from a fairly loose sketch for both.

High school "art" coming next! BEWARE!

Totoro Forest Project Tickets

Tickets went on sale this morning for the Totoro benefit auction which I wrote about in a previous post below.
Check out the link as some of the levels of participation are still available which include the bound catalog of all the paintings.

Sam and Max X Two

It's been awhile and the San Diego Comic Con was quite the distraction. At the show Telltale Games was offering the disc release of Season Two with my new painting which is also available as a print. Also, included here is the cover art for a new Sam & Max game soundtrack from Season Two. The music is by Jared Emerson-Johnson. It invokes the old Touch of Evil era crime flicks with smart, effortless nods to other genres.

Based on a reckless threat on my part to post some of my high school artwork I've had some requests to actually see that through. I've dug some out and I'll post them shortly if only to remind you to "Be careful what you wish."
