Time Travel Time

A little sneak peek detail from The Understanding Monster, book 3!

Note to self

I've been working hard to finish The Understanding Monster, book 3. This story has been such a huge and complicated experience to tackle. both satisfying and challenging beyond reason. I feel like I'll be in a whole new place with my art when it's finally complete. Gotta keep working.

Museum shirt available online

The shirt I designed to go along with my exhibition at the Missoula Art Museum is available at their website HERE!

Wild Walk Parade poster!

I was asked to design the poster fro the Wild Walk Parade this year. This parade is always super entertaining, with lots of crazy home made costumes. It kicks off the Wildlife Film Festival every year, here in Missoula, MT.

Shirt design for the Missoula Art Museum

I was excited that the MAM wanted to make a shirt to go along with my exhibition. My friends over at Garage Ts did a great job printing them.

Slideshow talk

I'm doing a slideshow talk at the Missoula Art Museum on Friday, April 3rd at 7pm. I'll be showing a lot of new work that no one has seen yet. It's the official opening reception for my exhibition there. Should be a fun night!

Workshop

I taught an art workshop for teens a few weeks ago at the Missoula Art Museum. I almost panicked when there were twice as many kids as I expected. They were awesome though. It was fun to see them dive in and make something.

things have been tricky lately

Already April. I've been working hard to finish The Understanding Monster, Book 3 so it can come out this Fall.

Saturday at the Missoula Art Museum

This Saturday the 7th from 1-3pm I'll be signing books at the Missoula Art Museum. Come on out and say hi, let me draw you a picture, and check out the exhibit of my work. The MAM is a great museum and I feel incredibly honored to be working with them.

The Missoula Independent comics issue!

The second annual comics issue just came out from our weekly alternative newspaper here in Missoula, MT. I'm very happy that this is becoming a tradition now. Tomorrow night (Friday the 6th) there's going to be a one night art show of all the comics at the Missoula Independent headquarters on Orange and 1st. Should be a good time! Above is a panel from my own contribution.

Gridlords

The Chase Scenes anthology book release and art show was tonight. I hope a lot of people came out for it. It was cool to see this photo of my woodcut on the wall along with these awesome Gridlords flags. As soon as I have copies of my own, I'll make the anthology available on my etsy shop.

I was searching through a stack of drawings in my studio and started to realize just how many drawings I've done that no one has ever seen. This is a tiny detail from a big doodle I'd forgotten about.

Here's some promo art for something I'm very excited about: The new comics anthology from my friends at Gridlords! Chase Scenes! I drew the cover and end page designs and contributed a 12 page comic.

Thank You!

Tomorrow is the last day of my solo show at Giant Robot! Huge, Huge thanks to everyone who checked out the show. It's an honor to get to show work with such a great gallery and I feel lucky that so many excellent folks came out to my opening and picked up pieces over the last few weeks.

Extreme Travel Machine


time lapse space toys

You can see time lapse footage of me working on this piece in the short film "Thought Clouds" that my friends Josh Wagner and Skye Bennett made. You can check it out HERE. They visited me in my studio and documented some of my process while I was finishing pieces for my solo show "Solvers". It's currently on display at Giant Robot in Los Angeles.

It's really fun doing time lapse drawing. I'm hoping to get a timer for my camera soon and do some on my own!

The original piece is still available HERE.

Enigma Trio

This original woodcut from my solo show is still available from Giant Robot. I was really happy with this one. Check it out HERE.

sketchbook doodle

Looking through old sketchbooks, I always find little things that I forgot about.

walk

I love the walk to my studio: mostly along bike trails and through parks. Thinking time. It's good to be back at work in the studio!

Giant Robot Podcast.

I'm featured in the latest Giant Robot Podcast. After a big day at the LA Art Book Fair and a crazy night at the opening reception of my solo show at Giant Robot, Eric Nakamura and I recorded a short interview for the GR podcast. I'm sure I must be slightly incoherent at this point, but it was great fun talking with Eric. He's the best.

Watch a very short film featuring me in my studio!

My friends Josh Wagner and Skye Bennett visited me in my studio a few times while I was working on all of the pieces for my Solo show at Giant Robot. They've made it into a 4 minute film and you can watch it HERE! It's part of a competition of short films about artists in Montana. You can vote if you feel like it. I haven't gotten to watch them all yet, but the ones I've seen so far are great.

Woodcuts gallore!

 It's always a crazy and fun process doing a big show like this. I shipped two boxes of pieces ahead of me and arrived with a suitcase and backpack stuffed with the rest. The top picture was taken after I'd unpacked everything and was getting ready to hang the show. You can see the whole show HERE. There's still pieces available.

Original art available!

You can now check out all 73 pieces in my solo show online at the Giant Robot shop. Many of my personal favorites are still available.

Art at Giant Robot



Here's three of the circular pieces hanging on the back wall at the Giant Robot Gallery until the 18th in Los Angeles, CA.

Back from LA!


I had an amazing time in LA. Huge thanks to everyone who came out to opening night of my show at Giant Robot. Above is a big drawing I made in the window of the gallery right next to a drawing by the legendary Katsuya Terada. More artists should be adding to it in the months to come, turning this wall into a giant sketchbook page.
