Charley Harper likes Video Games?

I wish he did. But I'm pretending this is what it looks like when he illustrates flora of the Zelda universe.

Lunar Boy and Beer!

The opening for Lunar Boy gallery's Beer group show is coming up on August 14th and I've got work featured!

I had a great time creating this guy and an especially great time painting the frame to go with.

Also, I live in Texas now. That is all.

Striking Out Stroke, and more.

I've been creating these spot illustrations for a monthly newsletter called News in Health, published by the NIH. The current issue and back issues are here. The topics are of course all health related. My first challenge was to delicately illustrate Bipolar Disorder and Stroke.

Nick Cave (Not That Nick Cave!)

So I've just been turned on to one of the most colorful and creative artists working today, Nick Cave.

From Wikipedia:
Nick Cave (born 1959 in central Missouri, USA) is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly. He also trained as a dancer with Alvin Ailey. He resides in Chicago and is director of the graduate fashion program at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

His soundsuits are colorful and from another planet. From the descriptions of his soundsuits, I'm supposed to be hearing them. But I can't help but fall in love with their visual splendor. They're just so playful and take me to a world I want to be in.

Here's some of the suits and do yourself a favor, go and look at this video that features a look at some of the creation and movement of the suits, not to mention a thorough slideshow.
