THE WARDTuesday, February 10, 2015
Ward is now up and available in my shop.  Ward is part of my Medicine Men series I started in 2013.  The art is a 6 color screenprint on natural paper stock.  Edition of 100. Size 18x24". Signed and numbered.

THE WARD - SCREENPRINTWednesday, February 4, 2015
I think in 2015 I'll be moving away from the realistic quality of my ongoing Acid work and travel back to my roots..foraging into the realm of fantasy and character design.  I'm itching to just create absurd and jumbled creatures, mixing cartoon with otherwordly spiritual officers with fragments of reality.  Basically, I want to coelesce all the various styles of work I've been doing over the years.. The Acid in the Ice Cream, the House of Uncommons and the Shadow Cabinet and all the work in between and just boil it down.. stew it together and create monsterous work. I will start by picking up where I left off with the Medicine Men screenprint series I started in 2013... Those guys were really fun and I plan to work on a full blown series of Medicine Men screenprints to release over the next 2 years... maybe an exhibition even.  

I'm starting with WARD.. a new Medicine Man for a new year.
