So my piece for Drawgasmic is finally up on their website. Sure, I put it up here, but you can actually BUY the piece on the website, if you feel so inclined (c'mon, you know you wanna...). You can click the link below to go directly to the page. Be sure to check out all the other awesome art that's being put up!

Drawgasmic Art Exhibition - The Art, Illustration, and Design Compendium

 Also, if anyone that reads this blog happens to be in the London area on July 13th, you should totally check out the Interstellar gig at 93 Feet East. The event is benefitting the Syd Barrett Fund, and tickets are only £5. The lineup features Skinbat Scramble, All Schools Are Strange, and Department S. And for those of you that don't care to actually watch the bands play, you can peruse prints of my book illustrations which will be on display at the gig. For all the nitty gritty details, please visit the events page on Interstellar.

 **Edit: Check out that sweet gig poster. Ohhhh, yeah!

Over The River

So tonight I had a wonderful opportunity to see a lecture by, as the marquee says, the world-renowned artist Christo.


I found out about the lecture through work and managed to sign up in time to get a spot. As you can imagine, the lecture sold out. The lecture focused on Christo's proposed piece "Over The River"---a temporary work of in the same vein as Christo and Jeanne-Claude's previous works. The piece would involve 5.9 miles of silver fabric suspended over the Arkansas River between Salida and Canon City, Colorado.

I was very excited about getting to go to the lecture as I am a fan of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's work. And really, how many times to you get to see an incredibly influential artist talking about his work?

If you want to read more about the project, or find out how to get involved, you can visit the official Over The River site.

Interstellar Overdrive

For anyone that's been curious to see the illustrations for my book, I've got some good news...the pieces are now up online thanks to the wonderful folks at Escape Artists and the Syd Barrett Fund. They've been diligently working on creating a new interactive site for the Fund and it launched this weekend. I must say, I am very impressed with the result. In addition to being the new online home for the Fund, the site offers visitors the option to create their own profiles, share images and videos, and connect with other Syd/Pink Floyd fans. My book has its own page that features both illustrations and my proposal for the project.

I'm really happy we could get the illustrations online as up to this point they haven't been viewed by fans. I'm hoping it will generate more interest in the project and provide us with some great networking and marketing opportunities.

If you're a Syd/Floyd fan and want to stay in touch with what the Fund and Escape Artists are doing, I highly suggest making yourself a page! It's a great way to stay updated with a wonderful organization, as well as meet some like minded people. And all in the name of Syd! Just hop over to And don't forget to friend me and my book.

Illustration Friday: Trail

I'm kind of cheating a little bit on this one as I actually did this piece some time ago for another project that came to naught and it just happened to work with IF's theme this week. But I'm submitting it anyway.

P.S. I'm not anti-snake, just anti-ATV and the destruction their drivers cause when they off-road in prohibited areas.
