The Joey Ramone Experiment

I've been playing around in Photoshop in my free time and have come up with a few interesting pieces. The first is a series I'm calling The Joey Ramone Experiment. It's an experiment because I made 5 or 6 different versions based on the same sketch and I couldn't decide which one I liked the best. You can find a handful of them in my Flickr photostream (click on the "archive link on the right hand side of this page). If you have a favorite or you hate them all please let me know.

Dave Bidini and Maisonneuve Magazine

I'm happy to announce that I will be in the Spring issue of Maisonneuve Magazine. Writer Dave Bidini, formerly of The Rheostatics, has written an article for this super cool magazine and I had the honor of illustrating it. The plan at this point is to have me illustrate an article of his in each issue this year. I'm thrilled to be working with both Dave Bidini and Maisonneuve on this and can't thank art director Anna Minzhulina enough.

Giclee Prints Of Leica Classic Camera

This is an oil painting I did of a Leica IIIc rangefinder camera. I found this particular camera for sale last year in a shop. I snapped some quick photo reference before some lucky photographer bought it. As of Wednesday this week, gilclee prints of this German classic will be for sale. The image size is 12" x 15" with an additional 1" white boarder all around and will be signed below the image on the lower right hand side. These prints are made with archival inks and papers for $55.00 USD plus shipping. If you prefer to do your shopping on Ebay, you can find them at the following link:

Rod Blagojevich Joins The Peanuts Gang!

I wanted to post this little Rod Blagojevich cartoon I did before the former Illinois governor disappears from the news. His hair kind of reminded me of Charles Schulz' Peppermint Patty. That's the whole gag. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from Mr. Blagojevich sometime soon.
