Hey Ho, Let's Go! I just finished this for a show entitled "Creature Double Feature" taking place November 6th at Brave New Worlds Comics in Olde City Philadelphia, 45 N. 2nd street between Market and Arch as part of the usual First Friday festivities... I've been on a little bit of a Ramones kick lately, so I came up with a way to make it fit into a monster theme...

I finally get around to posting my latest work for tomorrow's (Aug. 7th) "8-Bit & Beyond" art show as part of "First Friday" in Olde City Philly, at Brave New Worlds Comics at 45 N. 2nd Street. This show, hosted by the Autumn Society of Philadelphia (theautumnsociety.blogspot.com), will also have a special tie-in with the west coast through the efforts of Gallery1988 (www.nineteeneightyeight.com) who will be offering limited print runs for sale of selected works, including the above "OG: Original Gamer".
The fun does not end there, as Doctor Octorock (www.doctoroctoroc.com) will be in attendence, providing music inspired by 8-bit videogame soundtracks...
All in all, very exciting stuff, so C'mon out and say "hey"!

Come on out to "First Friday" July 3rd at Brave New Worlds Comics at 45 N. 2nd street in Olde City, Philadelphia to help us celebrate the "Golden Age of Comics and Animation"...
Even though "The Shadow" made his claim to fame mainly as a radio show, he did eventually find his way to "pulps" and comic books, therefore making him fair game to pay homage to for this show.
The 1994 film aside, "The Shadow" celebrates quite a long and respected history as one of the first "Mystery Men" to capture the imagination of many a young fan, even inspiring the creators of such popular characters as the Batman, and the Green Hornet...

Mister Morrisey never said it better... Finally finished my movie poster tribute to one of the greatest (and funniest) zombie movies in recent times. Been meaning to get around to doing a "Shaun" piece for a while, and I've got it done just in time for Wizard World Philly, which is next weekend, June 19-21. Come on out and say "brains...."

Just popping in to show off a new piece that I just finished for an upcoming show called "80s POP!" that will be taking place in Olde City, Philly this coming first Friday, June 5th at Brave New Worlds Comics on 2nd between Market and Arch streets.
I hope I'm not dating myself by my choice in subject matter, but I remembered how enthralled I was by this new show that was on MTV (back when it had cool programming) that I would have to sneak downstairs late Sunday nights with the volume down low so my folks wouldn't wake up and scream at me for watching TV at some ungodly hour (I think it was 11:00, but I guess my folks went to sleep early...)
Anyway, over 20 years later, I am still fascinated not only by the 4 lads from Scumbag College, but British Comedy in general (which explains my "Man-Crush" on Simon Pegg, more on that later....)

Just finished up this one for a group show that I am participating in on April 3rd at the Brave New Worlds comic shop, on 2nd street (btwn Market and Arch) in Olde City Philly for April's installment of First Friday...
The focus of the show is everyone's favorite Crown Prince of Crime, the legendary Joker. There will be quite a few artists participating, so come on down and check us out from 6 til 9 pm...

Anybody who knows me is well aware that I am a HUUUUUUGE fan of Elvis Costello. A few years ago, I was inspired by a lyric from one of his songs and came up with the "Death Wears a Big Hat" illustration that I originally posted here on my blog in '06. So last week, my buddy Peter who is also a big "EC" fan tells me he's got the opportunity to spend some quality time with our hero, and asks me if I've got any prints of my "Death..." illustration. I passed a couple of copies over to him, in the hopes that Peter would be able to get them to Elvis and be able to hang out with him a bit, and get one signed for me. Needless to say, he enjoyed the art, and was nice enough to pose with it for a photo...
