Work in the VALVE show at Paper City Studios in Holyoke, MA, opening Friday 10.11.13 10.10.13No Comments

I’m psyched to be joining artists like Bruce Fowler, Gary Hallgren, Adam Mulcahy, and Dean Nimmer, for this steampunk-ish show in Holyoke’s Paper City Studios, 80 Race Street, Holyoke. It opens tomorrow, Friday, 10.13, 6pm–9pm. I have four paintings and a sculpture in the show (these are terrible iphone photos). That’s my poster, too.

Work featured at Chicago’s 50,000 Feet exhibition, STRATA 10.9.13No Comments

I’m excited to be showing several paintings in an exhibition at the creative agency 50,000 Feet . The opening is tomorrow night, Thursday, October 9th, at 1700 Irving Park Road, Chicago. I’ll be sharing the space with some extraordinary artists, including Darlene and Debra Delbecq, Karolina Gnatowski, Jordan MartinsRachel Ritchford, Nathaniel Russell, and Michael T. Vollmann. My pieces in the show will be from my recent series of narrative diptychs painted on salvaged book covers. These are terrible photos of some of the pieces… but they capture their flavor.

“Piece A Cake” group show at FOE Gallery 5.14.13No Comments

Northampton’s FOE gallery has been a life-saving pillar of insanity in this otherwise sane and respectable land of Western Mass. I’m thrilled to have been invited to join the upcoming group show “Piece A Cake,” which opens with a 6pm reception on Friday, June 14th, and runs through July 7th. It’s going to be great to have a piece hanging next to work by artists like Bwana Spoons and Rick Beaupre and Martha Rich. My contribution is a watercolor/ink/collage on paper piece called “Just like Mom Used to Make.” Like Mama Used To Make

Wandermonster in Natural Child World magazine 3.18.13No Comments

The project my son and I collaborate on, Wandermonster, is featured in the latest issue of Natural Child World magazine. I share some thoughts on creative parenting and being a father, and there’s a pair of full page “before” Lunch Posts for anyone to finish.

We’re pretty excited about it, so grab a copy. You can find it at Barnes and Noble, Target, and Whole Foods, or from their site.

If you’re not familiar with Wandermonster, check out this quick video.

Wandermonster free robot art workshop at FOE this Saturday 3.7.13No Comments

Our sister blog, Wandermonster, is hosting a free Robot Art Lab Workshop this Saturday, March 9th, at FOE Gallery, a bastion of middle brow epicness in Northampton, Massachusetts.

For the past five years, my son and I have created collaborative comics we call Lunch Posts. With this free art workshop, we’ll bring the parent & kid madness to the masses. We’ll be joined by Colin Panetta and Adam Connor, two wonderful comic artists. Thanks to Jim and Nicole Shea of FOE Gallery, we’ll be running the workshop surrounded by epic robot art, the Rise of the Robots! show.

We hope you’ll join us.
