Merry Christmas!

As some folks already know there's a new site. I hope to consolidate everything into a singular site and thusly be easier to maintain and keep current. Blog, store, archives etc. will al be located there eventually. Here it is-


Thank you very much for all the orders. We only have a few copies of Chromaphile left, so when they're gone we'll discontinue the Seven Book Library offer or reconfigure it. I've included a piece of original art with all of the library orders either as a sketch in each book, or a stand alone sketch. It was something that people requested and frankly I should have offered form the beginning. Have great holiday.

Here are few shots of the studio while preparing for my current phase of work. Much of the focus here is for my upcoming show at Rivet. But since I'm only sending five or six small pieces a lot of this will continue to build towards a larger more comprehensive show in the next few years. I posted many more pictures on my Facebook page as well as some additional Big City stuff. Also I'm on Twitter.

Baby Tattooville

We spent another great weekend with friends and fans at this year's Baby Tattooville event. Bob never ceases to surprise or impress. One of the highlights for me was getting a chance to chat with James Gurney. We talked shop and in our too brief conversation touched on color theory, composition, rhythm etc. He's posted some of the drawings he did for attendees on his blog. Go check it out and spend some time looking at all the older posts while you're there.

He and his wife Jeanette are incredibly kind and gracious. So cool.

New Books-

I've recently finished work on the two newest books. One Eyeota-A book of orphans and widows. This book collects much of the work that was edited out of the books- Chromaphile, Vernaculis, Symptomatica and Kings Of The Road. It also includes some work done for animation, toy and game design, comics and other sundry stuff from the last few years. Most of the contents have never been seen.

I also finished the first volume of The Art Of Big City. This book has few pages that were published in Symptomatica and several from the extremely limited box set Big City Case Files from a few years ago. But, mostly it's never been seen before. Here are a few pages. I've showcased the bulk of these books on Facebook. Here are some random samples.

And Go.

Boldly Go

A few pictures I snapped before loading this thing up and shipping it back. I had planned to shot a series of pictures to document the process, but as usual was running behind schedule. This one is in Las vegas. You can read more about the rest of the pieces here-
