I was asked to make a gigposter for the upcoming Sleigh Bells, Jacuzzi Boys, and Liturgy show in Ft. Lauderdale. Silkscreened by Iron Forge Press.
I had the pleasure of adorning Cloud Kid Studio‘s new office walls with a mess of fun characters. They do terrific animated work, such as Fizzy’s Lunch Lab on PBS!
I painted this tatted-up succubus chick today in Cambridge MA. The moment I finished, it began to rain.

Had a great wedding in Cape Cod. Perfect combination of Mini Golf and Pizza. Back to work.
Our hole, “Take Out the Clowns”, is comprised of space brain monsters who are harvesting the funny fluid of human clowns. And the effect this has on the gravity of circus peanuts. Amidst all of the chaos, the albino shouting gorilla is running amok, throwing banana peels at everything! Below the fairgrounds looms the space brain’s crystal cave, a kind of wine cellar of funny fluid.
There are 3 ways to navigate this chaos.
The first option is to go up the quarter-pipe and into the mother-ship to defeat the brains. and return to earth via a spiraling space beam.
Or perhaps you’d rather take the secret passage through the quarter-pipe, and through the geo-dome. in pursuit of the escape albino gorilla.
Or finally, you could take the ramp through the crystal cave. for a quick meal of moon-shine and circus peanuts with the hobo.
Check out more images after the jump. Continue reading
Then the following Saturday I’ll be in Brooklyn, NY for the opening of another group show at Lucky Gallery (176 Richards Street, Brooklyn, NY. 11231). January 16, from 6-9PM, Lucky Gallery is hosting an artist reception for the exhibition “Anatomically Incorrect” which is an an on-site collaborative drawing installation by Anastasia Akulinina/Kaerfkrahs, Brian Butler, Downer, Faro, Scott Ferguson, Fish McGill, Maxwell Piersol, Cardon Webb, and Eunjeong Yoo. “Anatomically Incorrect” exhibition runs January 16th to February 7th.
Working directly on the gallery wall each artist creates a visual conversation; the alchemy of characters, text, and pattern affecting how the mural expands as each artist works responsively to the other.
In these trying economic times, continuity often demands a hit to ones pride, or a duck from moral standards. BEG BORROW STEAL assembles the work of a variety of emerging artists who embrace theft and appropriation as key elements in their creative process.
BEG BORROW STEAL is a group show of 35 young artists, juried and curated by Aaron M. Segal, a MassART graduate. Aaron is currently the art preparator of the LaMontagne Gallery. His objective for the show was to organize a group of peers, who may at this point in their careers still have limited access to commercial galleries, and give them the opportunity to show in one of Boston’s best. In the spirit of the show, the LaMontagne Gallery has been begged borrowed and stolen while Russell LaMontagne is on vacation, hopefully he won’t mind.
