Sound the ‘New-Art’ siren! And believe me when I say i wish I could be posting more on this slightly sorry excuse for a blog, but what work I’ve been doing outside of ‘work’ isn’t ready to be shown yet. Of course what that means is that there will be a deluge at some point in the next few months followed by more drought. I’ll try and find a solution to that because I really like posting art on the web.
Anyhow - to the art at hand! Tomorrow night at the estimable Gallery 1988 Melrose, the second annual Multiplayer show is opening, and I have some art in it (see picture above for said art). I have a huge fondness for Katamari Damacy and all it’s descendants, so it was a no-brainer when I was asked to contribute to a video game themed art show, and the folks at G1988 were very obliging, hence Katamari Dance Party.
Multiplayer will run from tomorrow for about a month and will (as all Gallery 1988 shows are) be worthy of your time. My print will hopefully be on sale online at some point in the next week - i’ll update this post with a link when it happens - and will set you back $55 for a three color 42 x 29 cm print in an edition of 30.

VIDEO GIRLS SERIES
These are pretty old but I thought I’d put them up here. The original idea was to to do a pin up girl series (thus the revealing outfits) and I decided to do them as female versions of male video game characters because why not. The Okami piece wasn’t part of the original series which is why that one breaks the rule, but I liked the idea too much to not do it.
