Nobody understands cricket!
You gotta know what a crumpet is to understand cricket!

I kill with my heart...

I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my mind.

I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
I kill with my heart.

- Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Winter Grapes

There exists one divine treasure
That makes every human being
Richer than any emperor or king -
Richer even than any nation.

That is the Earth.

Bank Robbery...

Sex and "sexy" is ALL about the mystery.
I love Coles Phillips. Obvious, right?
I love him because of the mystery.
What is up with her arms?
Is she an amputee or is she wearing
sexy long black gloves from a bygone era?
Why are her arms positioned like they are?
And what the hell is up with the blue paint?
Is it paint?
Are they tattoos?

When I look at her, I like to think she is in
the middle of a bank robbery.
She is the perp.
In her right hand she's holding
the bag full of looted cash.
Her left arm is pointed to the sky,
holding a gun and putting two into
the ceiling while threatening everyone

But, does that explain the tears?
Why the tears?

This is the poster I did for January's SLUG LOCALIZED.

Jimmy Johns...

Here is this month's illustration for SLUG magazine.
I love working for SLUG because it introduces
me to all kinds of new people and places.
I owe a lot to SLUG and just really enjoy 
working with the people down there. 
This piece was a blast to create, from working with
Carl Acheson to interviewing the Jimmy Johns guys.
I learned a lot painting this up.

Here's the link to the illustration in the mag:

I think the designers did an awesome job with the diagram.

The Urban Jungle

So much on my mind I just can't recline
Blastin' holes in the night till she bled sunshine
Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine
Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline
Yo how the bass ride out like an ancient mating call
I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathing
Chest heavin', against the flesh of the evening

Before and After

Each of my pieces starts out as a pen and ink.
They are always very shape-heavy.
This tree was fun because I wanted to make it
look a little more natural than I normally do.

The background is concrete.

The green in the tree is some tagging that I messed with.

Writerz Tree

There is an undercurrent
of organic energy 
to the concrete jungle.
It is alive.
It is color.
It is chaos.

12 Reasons to Die...

Ghostface's newest album, 
12 Reasons to Die,
is simply outstanding.
Adrian Younge is on point.
Picked up the special edition with 
the instrumental, a comic book, and a cassette tape.

The image has little to do with the content of the album,
but I was listening to it the entire time I was painting.

Beware of the Stare.
