Portrait project!

I started my portrait project. I am doing a series of posters called "Other People's Muses". In the series I am putting my own muses in the style or backgrounds of artist. The first poster is of my best friend. She represents Dali's muse Gala. This is because she is my Galuchka. She is the one person who can influence my art no matter what and she is really the most awesome person I know. I fucked up on her mouth but it kind of goes with the theme. Anyways enjoy and leave some comments.

Curls make me feel beautiful

Here is the next piece I will be selling. It is based on a drawing by dali for my favorite painting that he ever did. The original painting is called "Girl with curls". It is the most beautiful painting I have ever seen.

Same Price and ordering as last time. 15.00 with shipping included. Buy stuff so I can buy more art supplies. The medium is crayon and marker. Also if you want to trade art that would be totally awesome too. I need some new stuff to put on my wall. Send pictures and we can chat. I will be working on my portrait posters for the next week or so, so no more posters for sell for a few weeks or days. Leave some comments if you like the work or want me to do something else or have a request.

Crinkled hands and slick black hair

Here is the first piece that I will be selling. It is 11x14 in black and red marker on white paper. It features a copy of Egon Schiele's Nude girl in stockings. It is my favorite piece of art by the artist who has had the most influence on me. If you would like to purchase it is $15.00 (which includes shipping). It is one of a kind, so it is first come, first serve. I will hopefully have some more up for sell later this week. Email me @ if you would like to purchase.

Also for you tonight is an original drawing that I did at an anarchist house show on their wall. It is pretty sweet and is what usually happens when I don't have an idea and just start drawing.

Off with their fucking heads

This weeks poster is called Guillotine. It is pretty massive compared to Alice, Otis, and Leyla. It measures in at about 4 feet and 7 inches tall. My friend Jenifer helped me post this one cause it was so large. The wheatpaste was kind of weak this time, but it finally stuck. We pasted it on a very busy street, which was nerve wrecking at first, but became kind of cathartic after we had started.

This piece is about the idea that if one has been denied their natural rights that they have the responsibility to remove who ever is in charge of that government. This idea is one that has not been explored at all since it was originally announced in 1776, and during the time of the civil war. Our current president has usurped the power of his office, and has taken away the rights of hundreds of U.S. citizens. Whether it is through the spying laws of the Patriot Acts, or the very obvious rigging of an election where millions of minority vote were not even counted, this presidency is a shame of what our forefathers wanted for this country. It continues to head towards shit.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Depotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Here is what Alice looks like after an amazing amounts of storming. If you look at it you can still see a little bit of her color.

The next post may take awhile as I am working on my portrait poster series. I will post the posters when they are finished but they will not be posted on the street for a while, because I want to finish all seven.

Also, I am working on a set of four or five posters that will be for sell. They will be either 12x12 or 11x14, and will be my versions of another artists' work. The artist I have in mind are Dali, Schiele, Fafi, and Man Ray. They will be $15.00, which includes shipping. They will be one of a kind, so they will be first come, first serve when I post them.

Shit just keeps rollin

Here is a flyer I made for my friend Nick's Folk Punk project called Embargo? The music is fun and very reminiscent of other good folk punk ala Ghost Mice, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and especially Evil Robot Us' (their mixing of Hardcore and folk kinda makes it awesome.) Check out his myspace, and drop him a line. He is a nice dude.

Drawing with friends is sometimes more fun than playing with yourself

Work was slow today, so I decided to play my favorite art game with a co-worker. It is called Exquisite Corpse, and it is a drawing game. The rules are pretty simple. You fold a piece of paper into four sections, and then each person draws on one section but cannot look at any of the other sections. Since only two of us played we each did two sections. I did 1 and 3 and she did 2 and 4. Check em out.

Alice - Wheatpaste 3

I think this is pretty self explanatory with the quote and all, but just in case. I chose Alice because in my mind she represents what men and a male dominated society wants to be. The image is juxtaposed beside the words which have a very strong meaning about sexual oppression. I think the two work well together. I hope it rains soon, because I want the marker to run. I still haven't posted Otis yet, because the parking garage I was at tonight had cameras so next time I will go to the other one and see.

I thought I could find you

So things have been crazy. Not so much art this post. I am gonna show you the new painting I worked on. It is not really a painting. I mean there is black and red paint, but it is mostly crayon. I learned an important lesson. Never try to use crayons on ungesso'd canvas.

Detail - Upper

Detail - Lower
