Conspiracy Owl

This is a 12″ square piece I’m putting into Due West, the group show for the West Austin Studio Tour 2015.  It fits in the Defensive Postures series.  It was an experiment to see if I could make a smaller piece work in the series.  Defensive postures is mostly going to be larger paintings, originals more than prints.  Anyway, owls are fun and I’ve been toying with a smaller setting of constructed helmets for animals to wear.  It’s a nice bridge between the two series.(I just noticed this pic is partly a photoshop pre vis…but that’ll do.)owlsatblueowlsatblue

Sushi Chart: Canine Edition

This is the second one of my high art sushi charts.  Look for these in a set of placemats as well as a giclee edition.  I should have a few in Cherrywood Art Fair, in which I will have a booth.  That show is December 14th. I might have them available by the show in Manor.  I’ll keep people posted.

Welcome Cat: A fully functional sushi chart for a weird sushi place

 Welcome Cat

I don’t know when I first came up with this idea, but It has something to do with really admiring the aesthetics of sushi.  The chef seeks contrast and perfection and proportion and I admire that.  To honor the sushi aesthete, I have done a sushi selector, albeit a high art one.  It has japanese numerals on it so I can add a key for the print edition.  What’s that you say?  Print?  Yes, this painting was made to have a print edition.  Not only that, there will be at least 2 of them.  That’s right, you can have a collection of them for around 100 dollars.  The original is for sale, contact me through my site or through dm on instagram.


The Plastic Beach

Ever since I purchased two tiny paintings of sushi by J.Azarian, brother of painter Ethan Azarian, I’ve wanted to inject the simple genius of the craft of sushi, into the designs of my painting.  The Plastic Beach begins that process, though future paintings will be more directly linked.  I wanted to let everybody know, I have two prints on sale at Guzu Gallery online:  Battle of the Insurance Giants (A meditation on Kaiju) and A TMNT themed print, featuring the themes of this painting series.

Also available, but in town only, the 3 Animaruprinto silkscreens I did with Nakatomi inc., and a range of machine prints of the paintings.  These can be found at Spratx store/Gallery at 501 Pedernales, Austin, Tx, 78702.  Also for your koto case, sticker packs!  Help me open the store on my website, release sticker pack two and eat food bought from stores.  Thank You!
