-just checking in. hectic times, hectic nights. the heat is on.
-come to my art show next weekend if you live close to san francisco. if you live close to los angeles, either drive up here, or stay there and go to kyle's show here.
-also be sure to check in on the foam as the dream becomes a reality.
-and if you are in town go see the slow food deal that's going on all weekend. i know the people who work these things put their hearts and backs into it, so go eat some stuff, slowly.

the bros are back in town

tight bro for life, julius aka chickenleg jenkins has come back to oakland. he's adjusting just fine and and is looking forward to getting back to business. this means you can expect many photos of cat shenanigans and hairs stuck to drawings in the very near future.

did i ever put this up fully? i did art for the new neil halstead record, that is put out by the lovely lovely people at brushfire records. it's printed on some recycled stock and they did a pretty amazing print job. i heard there are some posters around, so keep your eyes out, i may have some at the art show in september. anyway, it was a pleasure to work on this, neil's music is rad and he's a really nice person. brushfire does great things and it was great to work with them. buy this on LP, it looks rad on a big format.

ps major announcement coming soon regarding you, the gentle reader's, participation in a drawing project. stay tuned!

here comes the hotstepper

this thing is going to england. something about a november bride or a beautiful dream baby. it's gonna be in a show in london with a bunch of other people, one of which, i am pretty sure, is blogbroforlife j. spears, who i met in real life over the weekend on haight street. you missed out on some quality pom pom workshopping if you didn't go check it. it was fun and it's always nice to meet a person in real life who you only know from pixels. i'm going to have a blogbro convention in hawaii next year at an exclusive resort. we will ride dolphins equipped with laptops.

simply woodshedding

you know, just workshopping some ideas with the braintrust, focusing on my scripts and contemplating large-scale story publication. but mainly just tripping out on the bart and accidentally drawing "the critter", a new direction.

sliding scale

books to work on:
-100 people drawing smurfs from memory
-look at that thing!
-possible homemade tattoo ideas
-my kingdom, my domain: autobiography of a backyard critter

encounter group

class A tater tots at this pit stop in oregon.

do you ever see a painting or a building or something and think to yourself "the person who made this is my wife/husband/soulmate and we are destined to meet, move to holland, live in a woodland shack and get weird into old age"? as seen in marysville, california.

right down the middle.

new wows

simply busting to get ready for this madness. in a month.


• if you are so inclined, these above 18x24 silkscreens can be purchased from mollusk (look to the right, there's a link!) for $25 each. last copies and all that. you can read about it here.

• i made it back home. canada was great. more to come on that.

• happy birthday to dan and Le Dawg.
