Put. A. Bird. On. It. (or 1,000)

So excited to be included in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock tribute, Suspense & Gallows Humor at Gallery 1988 Venice.  Not only is this one of my favorite tribute shows, but I was also able to base a piece on one of my all-time favorite movies; the 1963 classic, The Birds.. Can’t wait for this one!  Opens Friday, April 15th.

Hitchcock Tribute Coming Soon

The past few weeks have been spent working on my tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, an upcoming show at Gallery 1988.  Here is a little peek at the progress of my piece so far.. More coming soon!

Bloomberg View OpEd

I did a quick little illustration for the Bloomberg View’s OpEd page yesterday.. I forgot how fun a short deadline can be!

I had a few hours to finish this piece on how the Fed/Bernanke can be compared to Eeyore & Tigger.. if they ever had to solve the Hundred Acre Wood’s economy.

Is This Thing On? 2

UPDATE: For those inquiring about purchasing, they are now available here!

When Gallery 1988 asked me if I’d like to participate in their second installment of Is This Thing On?, I jumped at the chance.  Last year I depicted the great Steve Martin, but this year I decided to take on my other favorite comic, the late Mitch Hedberg.

I was first introduced to Mitch’s stand-up years back, by my roommate who used to play his recordings while we worked in the studio.  I was instantly in love.  His wit,  play with language, and absurd observations paired with an odd, but enduring delivery made for a great comic who continues to be missed.

I once read that Mitch suffered from almost paralyzing stage fright and often wore sunglasses while on stage, so he could close his eyes while speaking.  I thought about this a lot while sketching up ideas for my piece, and decided that a straight-forward portrait of Mitch would not suit him.  To me, his words are really what he’d most likely prefer to be remembered for, so I tested out a new technique and created 8 small, wood etchings of my favorite quotes.  All wood panels are sealed in resin.
