I was asked to make this poster for comedy show in Brooklyn on Friday.  If you live in the area you’re not gonna want to miss this, these are some funny guys.  If you don’t live in the area, well it’s probably not worth making the trip.  
It was a pretty busy week so I was only able to spend a couple hours working on this, but I learned a lot working under such a tight deadline and given the time constraints, I’m pretty happy with how this came out.  Thanks to Josh Bates for the cool assignment!

Amazing show, but interesting new cast… I can only imagine next season might look a little something like this.

I bought these shoes last March in Italy.  Together we’ve walked many miles through many cities throughout the world, and they have worn the elements of sand from the beaches in Barcelona trapped in the soles, to salt stains from the icy roads of Syracuse.  Unfortunately, they now make me look homeless.  So after one last trip to New York, walking far too many blocks when I should have just taken the subway, I decided to retire them. I originally bought them because one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs is “Boots of Spanish Leather” (turns out these were made in Portugal… close enough) and they also reminded me of one of the pairs of shoes Van Gogh painted.  Perhaps I will make a painting of them someday, but for now, a drawing in my sketchbook will do.  Thank you shoes for your year and a half of service, it’s been a hell of a journey.

I’ve been getting really bored at work…

Sometimes when I am not drawing I make manly smelling soaps.

Thanks to the US Men’s National Team for an awesome month of soccer!  
Pencil and Acrylic in my sketchbook, then some photoshop action.

I was commissioned to make a painting of roosters for someone’s kitchen.  I then decided to create a wine label with the painting, since those roosters are making wine to begin with.  Also, a rooster is used as the symbol to indicate that a wine is an authentic Chianti Classico, so the wine basically had to be Chianti.  While most Chianti labels are very decorative and traditional, I decided to change it up a bit and take a very modern approach.  Cin Cin!

Wanted to practice some hand lettering, so I made some edits to a Bob Dylan poster I made a few months ago.

Just some pig up lines….

Another blast from the past. My mom decided to put this painting i made two years ago in a fancy frame. Crazy how frames can make art look so much more legit. Fun fact, this painting was actually my first ever tumblr post almost two years ago.

And yes that’s a rooster married to a toad. I’m pretty sure that’s legal now here in Pennsylvania.

I did this illustration a while back for 360 Degrees magazine about the Tough Mudder race.  Kinda forgot about it, but I like how the layout came out in the magazine, so I thought I’d post it.
