I'll be heading out for my first Comicon adventure this weekend. On Friday, I'll have a new painting in Mark Murphy's exhibit coinciding with Planet Illogica's debut. You'll want to know more about that show and the new company by clicking on Mark's blog link, which is that different colored text just before what you're reading now.

The painting is called "New Horizon," and is indicative of not only how I'm feeling but also where life is heading at the moment. I don't have the answers, couldn't tell you where the boat is heading or what that all is up ahead. But I can tell you this, each day is different and contains more than we usually allow ourselves to perceive.

Planet Illogica is a revolutionary way of empowering artists, and you can find out more about their brilliant setup by clicking here.

And really, this is VERY exciting. I'll be signing with Hi Fructose on Saturday, 1pm. I'll try to remember to take some pictures for sure...


Join our happy little expedition as we weight anchor for parts abroad and visit the land known solely to Myriam Mechita. A dyed in the wool conceptualist and visual acrobat, this French virtuoso will cause one to question the limits of "usual" expectations. But you can see for yourself by clicking right here.

The Clayton Brothers' latest exhibit, Juicy Fruit at Patrick Painter, is definitely something to take in. In my humble opinion, they are on the cusp of doing what every single artist wishes they could pull off: be a huge success, define themselves artistically, then break down their trademark into a new, again successful, language of their devising.

Kevin Peterson is one of the more awesome people, not to mention artists, that I've met. He's level headed, calls it like he sees it, and doesn't mind taking a few minutes to say what's on his mind. Click here to get a load of what he's working with and see some of his new work.

Friday, July 17 brings us the launch of Nathan Hamill's Picnic Land series, heralded by the first of many custom toys in the line, Boris. Boris is a squirrel that Nathan asked a crew of artists to paint and customize, and thanks to Joe Ledbetter I was invited to participate and make a new Boris character. I don't know why exactly, since I'm not a huge fan and don't follow comics much anymore, but I wanted to make a Green Lantern Boris. And that's just what we see here (below). These customs will be shown at the grand opening at Meltdown on Sunset this Friday night. Very exciting and always exciting to see who shows up at Melt.
