OFFICER OF THE QUANTUMTuesday, September 2, 2014
I recently completed a companion piece for a buyer of 2 other works from my Shadow Cabinet exhibition in Los Angeles.  The work was delivered to Denver in person on a cross country road trip that I just completed.  Apologies for the lack of posts.. I've been on the road.  For now, here is the Officer of the Quantum!

ACID PRINT SUITE NO. 4 - CLOZAPINEFriday, August 1, 2014
No. 4 in the 2014 Acid Print Suite is now up in my shop!  As opposed to the last 3 releases, which were giclee prints, this fourth installment is silkscreen printed.  It took a while to dial in the separations for the graphite part of the art, but the end product looks very true to the original.  This is one of the cleanest and crispest screen prints I have ever released.  The best part is, they are good and affordable.. $40 will get you one. 

The art is called Clozapine, named after a drug used to treat hallucinations due to schizophrenia. 

The print is 2 colors on natural cover stock paper. Size is 26x32", an edition of 100 signed and numbered.  Please visit my shop for more info.

The album isn't out yet, but you can stream some of the music at
