Gallery 1988 is THE place in Los Angeles for Pop-Culture art shows. I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in quite a few shows with them over the past few years. This year marks a record for me with 10 shows at Gallery 1988 in 2012!!!

Earlier this year I was in the "Adult Swim" show and last month "Is This Thing On? 2". The next show i'm so proud to be a part of is "Suspense & Gallows Humor: A Tribute to the All-Time Greatest" at Gallery 1988 in Venice, CA.

Alfred Hitchcock was a true master. His work was so chilling and visually captivating, there are many options for an artist to interpret his work, which is why i'm so excited for this show! Below is my contribution.

In the 80's Nintendo was a dominant force to be reckoned with. Had Hitchcock been just a few years behind I'm almost certain that Nintendo would have jumped on the chance to make video-game adaptations of some of his most iconic films. I'm almost certain that their game boxes would have looked a little something like this:

A very limited number of these prints will be available exclusively at Gallery 1988's Venice location as well as online through their website.

There are over 100 artists participating in this show and it's sure to be an excellent event. If you're in the Los Angeles area you should definitely make it a point to come on out to Venice. Details below.

A to Zombie

I recently started a new blog dedicated to the ABC's of surviving a zombie apocalypse. A few years ago I came up with a plan. Everyone should have a survival plan if you want to survive. Now i'm working on a handy guide that will help you and your loved ones (provided they aren't infected) prepare.

"A to Zombie" is an alphabetical guide that I started mainly as an artistic exercise. I wanted to work in a style drastically different than most of what I do on a daily basis. An A - Z list is a great way to build a body of 26 pieces, it also allows for your subject matter to be pre-determined so i'm never just staring at a blank page.

It's a lot of fun to incorporate the letters into the words and composition, I hope you tune in.

Head on over to A to Zombie and check back often! You never know, someday your life may depend on it...

The Fellowship

"Pack your Lembas bread and get ready to leave The Shire behind with The Fellowship! The new album "One Ring" will take you on an epic journey there and back again. With hit songs such as "You Shall Not Pass" and "Po-ta-toes", your ears will RING with delight. So bring your axe and your sword and listen to The Fellowship!"

-The Fellowship album front-

-Track listing for "One Ring"-

I created this piece just purely for my love of The Lord of the Rings. I originally had planned to do a bit of an ode to Sgt. Peppers by trying to include as many LOTR characters as possible, and I soon realized that what I love about the films is this group of men, wizards, hobbits, an elf and a dwarf that set out on the ultimate quest of good vs. evil.

The hard thing about coming up with a track list is that there are just too many good quotes. There's even a hidden one which only an elf would know.

Get ready for an Unexpected Journey by ordering a print today!
