Crisis Case


A ‘crisis case’ is an event in which a person has a quasi-perceptual experience of someone at a distance at the time of that person’s death or other crisis.

This is another in the series of prints I’ve been working on. It’s transparent base printed on 5 different layers.


The Pachyderm Has No Paddle

This was a quick Wall Street Journal Online illo for an economic forecast survey. Whether our intrepid donkey and doofus elephant are merely navigating some rapids or careening towards a deadly waterfall is the question I guess. I do like that the pachyderm has carelessly lost his paddle.


Ode to Beatrix




These are some “faces” that I drawn with my friend Marcelo Delamanha.
To make these, each one drawing a part of the face (for example: 1 eye, half of the nose, etc).


Top Spins of 2007

This is not a top ten. Nope. It’s not even a top 15. This is a list of the albums that for numerous and varied reasons got the most “spins” from me this past year. By no means should it be considered a comprehensive comparison or judgment on any other albums that were released in 2007. I find it impossible to keep up with all the music that is available nowadays. In fact I barely try. These albums came my way by various means and through various venues. I played them often. And I played them happily. Rogue Wave in particular. Enjoy.
In no particular order:
New Buffalo, “Somewhere, Anywhere”
The Shins, “Wincing the Night Away”
Rilo Kiley, “Under The Black Light”
Wilco, “Sky Blue Sky”
Miracle Fortress, “Five Roses”
Interpol, “Our Love To Admire”
Arcade Fire, “Neon Bible”
Radiohead, “In Rainbows”
Destroyer, “Destroyer’s Rubies”
Jans Lekman, “Night Falls Over Kortedala”
Stars, “In Our Bedroom, After the War”
Fujiya & Miyagi, “Transparent Things”
Rogue Wave, “Asleep At Heavens Gate”
Lily Allen, “Alright Still”
Palomar, “All Things Forest”


Your Vegas Poster

This is a poster I did just last week for the band Your Vegas. They originally hail from Leeds, UK and recently settled in NYC. Universal Records (their label) sent them out for their first gig in L.A. this week. To commemorate the show, the sharp marketing folks at Uni (thanks Frank!) decided to commission a limited edition poster. I had a crazy busy schedule last week while working on this, as I had the only other music project that I have ever worked on underway (more on that soon!). All in all it was a fun frenzied project, and I had a blast with the silhouettes, using only the mighty lasso tool to draw the loose shapes. Anytime I get to go nuts with glowing lights and a dusky sky, counts as a fun project.
Some detail shots after the jump…

Pyroton Particle Theory


This is a phosphorescent ink silk-screen print of a small self portrait I did. It is printed on nitrocellulose or “Flash” paper. It is 4.25 inches by 4.25 inches. “Flash” paper is usually used as a stage trick. It burns extremely brightly and almost instantly, without smoke or ash.

These are three states of the same piece; in the light, in the dark and post-ignition view. Click the image to see a larger version.

The title comes from a theory by a “scientist” named Larry Arnold. He believes that Spontaneous Human Combustion occurs because of subatomic particles in the body called Pyrotons. This theory has never been proven though.
