* Long Time, New Works

I have been away from updating recently due to many things. I got a new job which is robbing me of most all of my free time. I'm putting in 12 hour days between commuting and working, so my art updates have been few. I took a short vacation and I have been working on new art (info below).

But I have been making stuff while "away". As I talked about in my last post, I was in a group show at the Medicine Agency in San Francisco. Although it was over a month ago, I will say the turn out was kinda ridiculous. I had to see the whole show in stages over a three hour period it was so packed. I am posting the full photos of the 2 new paintings I did for the show (I only posted partial photos in the last posting).

The show was covered by Hi-Fructose magazine, and one of my pieces (along with my art buddy Serge Gay Jr.) were selected among the magazines favorite among the show. Check it out.

In other news, I am hard at work with my pals over at Professor Squirrel. I have made new stuffed animals for their store. 2 larger butterflies (like my pins only bigger) and a huge octopus. If you live in the Bay Area/Oakland, PLEASE go and check out my octopus. I put way too many hours into him. He is going to be showcased at the store with some nautical pillows which I have yet to see, but I am excited! He (the octopus) along with my bigger butterflies are all on sale over at Professor Squirrel.

More work is currently underway, more updates later!
