Sneak peek of a painting I’m finishing up
"Junk food Jesus"
New colored pencil drawing that will be the cover of the newly revised Compound Butter magazine.
You can buy the original in my shop!
"Real houses with made up stories"
A little zine of drawings of real houses I’ve seen but with completely fictional families inhabiting them.
Redoing an older piece of mine. Hopefully it turns out better than the first.
Sketch for an upcoming painting that I’ll be transferring onto a panel this weekend. Im building my website right now so I think I’m going to start posting a little more of my process on tumblr so people can see how I work. Thought this could be a place a little different than my site, but I’ll still be posting finished pieces here as well. Hope thats ok with you guys!
Been going through my old work recently, here’s a painting I never posted. Acrylic on panel, 10x10 of Mckenna.
My skater scroll is featured in the Los Angeles issue of the truly wonderful Boat Magazine, on newstands now. I also did some spot illustrations for an article about LA’s native plants. Huge, huge honor.
I don’t normally post WIP’s but I’m happy with how this is turning out. I feel like after years of working with colored pencil I’m only now fully understanding how to use them.
Can you guess who the portrait’s of??
Compound Butter: The Junk Food Issue
This year I was talking with a friend about combining our two passions, art and food, into one product. We decided to start a magazine in which the topic changes each issue, but the theme is the same: works of writing, photography, and art that are inspired and motivated by a love of food. The articles inside are all very personal accounts of what junk food means to them, what effect it’s had on their life, and how it deserves to be celebrated and explored. Myself and others created work for about 2.5 months to go inside and its been a major labor of love.
What I’ve posted pictures of are some spreads from the prototype issue I just finished designing. We’re working on fixing some problems and improving the content before we find some way to put it up for sale at the most affordable price possible. We’re also working on a website so stay tuned!
Compound Butter features the work of:
This is one of all time favorite paintings by one of my all time favorite artists, “Flood” by Aron Wiesenfeld. His earlier work probably had most of an effect on me, especially this painting which I can’t really describe why I love so much.
As far as other artists, I’m really crazy about:
Tove Jansson, Michelle Fleck, Kevin Lucbert, Hergé, Robert Montgomery’s recycled sunlight pieces, Charles Huettner, Parra, and Taro Hirano’s photography series called “Pool”
Reblog from my personal tumblr because I thought the question was relevant for my work.
Upcoming cover for Compound Butter magazine’s junk food issue.
Prototype issue will be finished within the week, with the finalized first issue launching later this month.
Done in colored pencil.
