Tees and Samus Aran

So I just made this t-shirt for fun the other day. This was my first experience with fabric markers which turned out to be really fun to work with. This was kind of a gift for my sister so I had her model it. The image is a lady surround by flowers with a flying bee in talk bubble I'm happy with the results. I will definitely be making more tees now.

Yess I also have the new and improved Samus sketch complete with a rough color study. This painting will finished within a few days or maybe even less. This Metroid collaboration is going to be wicked when its finished.:)

In the AM::: Heads Will Roll

Hey I'm kind of restless tonight and thought that I'd share a cool music video. I figure that on restless nights when I can't sleep and have already blogged about my art I'll just blog about other stuff. I'm going to call these posts "In the AM" as they will probably all be posted at some insane hour of the morning/night. so I'll start

This video is from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the song is called "Heads Will Roll". This video is great because of its dancing Werewolf who's dance moves are soaked with the flavor ofthe late Michael Jackson. The band has a new sound this album with more synth and electonic bells and whistles which I'm actually enjoying. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs continue to stun and inspire me with every album they make.

and they are coming to Philly this wednesday to the Electric Factory. It's going to be a good time :)

Home Studio 2.0

Recently I completely rearranged my living space so that it can me more accommodating for me as an artist thus resulting in my home studio 2.0. My old set up had me between an easel and a bed with a trash can which I learned very quickly would never take the place of a good old fashioned art desk. My art desk I have now is freakin' awesome and paired with my sweet new Logitech satellite speakers & sub-woofer(not pictured) and the wall adorned with postcards & posters by my favorite artists and people are going to make painting and drawing a piece of cake from now on. I'm both excited and pleased especially when I look my old workspace.

oh yes and I can't forget my Metroid collaboration with friend Debbie Plesnarski is in the works we will wrapping paintings this week and then next will result in our final product which will be in the "8 bit & Beyond" show at Brave New Worlds on August 7th.

Cheers Everyone!!!
