I'm working on the following books for 2009-2011 release dates-
One Eyeota- A smallish book with a large portion of analog work.
Eponymonstrous- A rather large compendium type book. This will likely include work that didn't make it into previous books as well as pieces from the out of print books. It's also likely that it will include a good sampling of work done for the studios between 98-06. Photos and font/type designs. Much more of a designed book than any of the previous catalog style books like Chromaphile, Vernaculis
Big City- Finally a trade edition Big City book. This will reprint some of the work from the Big City limited edition box set as well as tons of stuff that hasn't been seen.
Monty's Book- Untitled project for Monty to go along with Got Your Nose: A True Story
and Izzy's Very Important Job
Possibly an all Halloween book and a release of the Fragmentia book that I sidelined earlier this year also.

Here are a few shots of the Vinnie I did for this weekends custom show at VTN.
I should have put something else in the frame for a sense of scale. These are really big, about 15" in all dimensions. I figure that this is likely the last custom/platform piece I'll ever do.
I'll be there for the entire event.

I'm going to be at VTN in Pasadena this coming weekend. If you're around stop and say hello. I had hoped to have a few previews of some upcoming releases, but alas I've been dragging my feet. I'm still trying to get a few things together especially for the event, we'll see how the week goes. Here's the postcard I did for the event-

Bob asked me to design a poster for the museum show that coincides with this year's Baby Tattooville event. Diesel Fuel is producing this as an 18"x24" 8 color serigraph on wood for all registered guests. I believe that there will also be an edition on paper available for sale at the museum. I'll be returning this year along with most of last year's artists. If it's anything like last year it should be quite the event.

Off to Comic Con. In the usual spot- booth 620. This year my booth-neighbor will be none other than House of Secrets/Art of Fiction/5 Color Comics at booth 523. I'll have the latest and last of my pin-up books- “Symptomatica”. It'll be available in stores in the next few weeks or so. That's the book back there. You may notice the absence of Chromaphile in the stacks of those signed books awaiting shipment. It's been out of print for awhile now.

Here are a few invites and such for my show opening at M Modern in Palm Springs on March 15th.
It's a relatively small show in one of the smaller galleries and the physical size of the paintings are
accordingly on the small size. 17"x17" on average.
The title of the show refers to the fact that the compositions are compilations, or maybe anthologies of "fragments" pulled from past and current projects- including Lexiconic, Symptomatica, Chromaphile, 24 Hour Paradise, Eponymonstrous and even Big City.
I'll post a few more pictures of additional paintings, prelims and sketches over the next few days.
Shortly after that I'll put together a post explaining my long and future absence from this here blog.
