Some Flicks and Tricks

Oktoberfest
Here's Chris. David of Slum Circus held a "Drink and Draw" party which I had to attend and met Chris and a few other artists. We were all drawing and drinking (no way). Chris is trying to get back into the fun side of art. Shoot for the stars and all that.
Here's Alex rocking my art and his from left to right. Dude is pretty talented and he's got the inspiring DIY lifestyle down pat.
I turned this out.
And that skull for good measure...
Initial sketch.
Mural in SD I happened upon.

Alfonso Malagon made a rare appearance.

Where we ended up wasn't too bad.

140 Preview

Haven't blogged in a while. Need to get some images up here. For now only a preview of what will be my first standard-sized comic! On the bum news side, The Burn Issue won't be available for some time. On the plus side there's a comic book preview you can print or download right below these words!

Riverside Artswalk and MiniMogul

Here's a few reference photos of the haters that earned their own section in my new comic 140 out at LBCC (Oct 29). Halfway decent ills to follow.



I flaked on a friend last week in the Riverside Artswalk and that was a dick move on my part. I was in the area just in case I got his call so I could make good but no dice. During my stroll I ran into Dan Nguyen who I met in 09 while we painted at a little show called "The Writing Is On the Wall." If you're in the I.E. art at all you've seen his stuff. If you're in the LA art at all and you haven't seen his stuff you will soon. He was working on this piece with a cool chap named Teebs.
Squirrels and guns. Fuck yeah.
This dude was walking around all night with his sign "yHomeless" or some such nonsense. He was being filmed so I'm waiting for that meme to pop up somewhere.
Went back to catch Dan and Teebs finished work.
Cosme of Division 9 fame as well as a few other folks suggested the Bicycle show at Sweeney to me. Sweeney has been out of service for a while, or so I was told, so I was stoked to get back through those doors. I walked right into this.


I'll gouge your eyes out.


Nice.
Flocked and stocked.
Took apart a car and built two bikes out of the parts? Fully functioning? You're a king.

Saw this in Juxtapoz. Then in real life. Dig. Kudos, Jud.

Got invited to a not-so tangible lounge.
Bitch tits.

In other news, Saturday night I was in a show aptly titled "Legit" put together by the unstoppable duo only known right now as MiniMogul. These girls know what they're doing and I was down to show with them. Cool artists and space abound. They're looking to put together another one in November and I'm down for that too if they need me.







Here's some process pics of the cover of 140. All the art is done and now it's onto the manufacturing. Gotta get printed and stapled.



Show coming up on October 16 at Sounbite Studios. Charity and all that. Good cause. Get involved. Blah blah blah.
Oh, and it's a costume party. DO it.
