Art in Heat!

Join an eclectic mix of 18 emerging and established artists from the DC area, as well as The Lobsterboy Revue for Art in Heat! Opening night festivities are June 30, 7pm, at the Warehouse and will run late into the hot summer night. Lobsterboy will be on hand at 8pm and 11pm with his “Tiki Party from Hell.” DJ Adam will be keeping the party going in the upstairs gallery.

The selected artists represent the best of DC’s Outsider, Lowbrow, and Pop Surrealist artists. They’re notable for creating work that’s fun, twisted, sexy, and just plain wrong. Featuring: Ed Bisese, Chris Bishop, Scott G. Brooks, Lisa Brotman, Anna U. Davis, Jared Davis, Alan Defibaugh, Margaret Dowell, Dana Ellyn, Gregory Ferrand, Linas Garsys, Laurel Hausler, Candace Keegan, John Lancaster, Emily Greene Liddle, Albert Schweitzer, Matt Sesow, and Ben Tolman.

On Saturday, July 7th, join us again for “A Very Special Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School.” Bring your sketchpad and twisted little mind for an evening of art and burlesque.

Art in Heat will unofficially kick-off this year’s second annual Capital Fringe, which opens July 19th along the 7th Street corridor. The Warehouse is a popular venue and meeting place for Fringe, and Art in Heat is the perfect appetizer.

Visit www.artinheat.com for more information and to see selected pieces from the exhibit. A complete gallery of the work will be online by June 29th.

Got to love a rosy bummed cupid. Happy early Valentine's Day everyone!

I recently dug up some old sketches and drawings, some I want to finish, others are fine as is. In the coming weeks I'll post some of these, consider it a trip down memory lane.

Hand Me My Leather

Since Mid-Atlantic leather wasn't too long ago here in the district I thought I'd post this image. A newspaper I was working for wanted an illustration for an article representing the brotherhood of leather.
It was in no way to demean, poke fun or sexualize the act of men tying each other up and dressing in leather. It's meant to promote the comaraderie and brotherhood of the activity. So here we have a very benign image of men in leather pants and cuffs.
I've since lost the source file for this (it was even in color!) but I managed to dig up a black and white laser print of it. I think it looks rather striking in grayscale however, so I'm not too worried.
