Submitted for your approval, a new color edition of one of my recent prints, “American Jesus VS the Scifi Mole Men.” I’ve been experimenting with screen printing these past few months, but I think for combining with wood block I still prefer the hand crafted feel of the water color paints.

I begrudgingly decided to start using twitter. You can follow me if you wish, but I have to warn you: I am not using this to say anything that involves me or what I’m doing. Basically I just post whatever’s the darkest weirdest thing I can think of. There’s nothing to be found regarding my lunch, where I’m shopping, or what pants I may or may not be wearing. I know what you’re saying, that defeats the purpose of twitter. I guess I’m just a rebel.
That headline probably reads worse than it really is. If you look at the handy navigation bar, there’s a new page. But don’t fear change! It’s a separate page for all my zombie prints. You may have noticed the dead feature prominently in my work, and now they are all gathered in one convenient location. And as an added bonus feature, there’s a brief artist statement explaining the series and why I seem so obsessed with dead people.
I’m still looking for a better way to arrange the images themselves though, I must express my dissatisfaction with WordPress’ image arrangement options. The search for a plugin begins!
Cue my theme music!

I think the Frat House of the Dead is one of the best prints I’ve ever turned out. I’m finally getting comfortable with shading and texture in a way I’m satisfied with. I think the next few pieces will be smaller, so I can crank them out faster and they’ll be a little easier to print. And if we’re lucky they’ll fit on a tshirt.
I’m setting up separate pages for the two series I’m still working in- the Zombies and the Ameressiah. Ordinarily I’m against artist statements, I think if you can’t appreciate a piece on its own merit without reading the artist’s explanation of it, then the artist is not communicating properly. But I think the full account of my reasoning behind the work ought to be present for those who are curious.
And then there’s the Paypal setup. And the clothing setup. And I swear I will work on this site someday, just as soon as I get tired of actually making new prints.
