Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

It's been a week since last posting and I'd like to take a moment to wish everyone Happy Holidays.

More things to come in the New Year. A few shows at Gallery1988, more Star Wars art for, and other posters that will be a surprise. Not to mention tshirts at, and hopefully

My goal for 2012 is to work with on a poster. Wish me luck.

Thanks again!

Cropped Zazzle prints

If you've ordered any of my posters from Zazzle and it came to you cropped with the image cut off at the top and bottom, please inquire about an exchange through Zazzle.

There is a feature on my end of things when setting up the print that I was unaware of until now. It locks in the aspect ratio so you don't have any other options besides ones that won't crop the image.

I've now corrected this so that all the posters are locked in. You can still order different sizes, just not all of the ones that were listed before.

The Minnesota State Fair poster has won an award

During the International Association of Fairs and Expositions Convention and Trade Show (IAFE) in Vegas. They gave out awards in several different marketing categories (social media, websites, media kits, advertising, etc.) The Minnesota State Fair won Outstanding Poster Award for 2011!

Beetlejuice, Betelgeuse, Beetlejuice

Just watched Beetlejuice, again. This was something I had originally done for the POP show at Ltd. Gallery, but went with the Voltron gig poster instead. Not really sure what to do with it now. I hope to be able to put it up as a print somewhere, sometime.

The story behind this one is, what if Beetlejuice had won, married Lydia and took over the Maitland's family business.

If you missed Ltd. Gallery's POP show ...

You can see the art here. A lot of great pieces from your favourite games and movies.

Prints are also available.

Gallery1988's Tribute to Bill Murray

I'm very excited to be a part of Gallery1988's tribute to Bill Murray. It's been a goal of mine to have something up in their gallery. So I was thrilled when they asked me to submit something for the show. The show opens Nov. 3 in Los Angeles (see evite below).

This is my take on Bill. We see him in Punxsutawney (location shown is Woodstock, Ill. where filming took place) with some Easter eggs sprinkled through the print (6 a.m., Tip Top Cafe, groundhog and gopher (from Caddyshack), news van). The repetition of the tag line was fully intended. If you've seen Groundhog Day, you'll understand.

There is a limited run of 50 Giclee prints on archival paper, signed and numbered.

Here are some detail shots:

Pop culture art show at L|td. gallery in Seattle beginning Oct. 21

I'm very excited to announce that I will be a part of the grand opening of L|td. gallery in Seattle next month (Oct. 21). The subject matter of the show is pop culture so that left it pretty much wide open.

I decided to revamp an old design and get screenprints made. 25 total, signed and numbered, 4 spot colour on French 100# PopTone (teal) paper. The look I was going for was that of a concert poster. They will be available at the show. (they used my piece for a base of the poster - awesome)

The pose is based on Angel Nieves' 3D model shown here. He was kind enough to allow me to use the image for reference.

Just being on the same bill as the artists listed on the poster is an honour. Many of whom I admire greatly and have been good sources of inspiration.

So, if you live in the area or plan to be in Seattle over that time, stop by. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Vintage cycling posters for ClifBar

I'm now able to show these since the event they were created for has come and gone.
This series of posters I did for ClifBar's booth at this year's Interbike expo in Las Vegas, last weekend.
It was a great series to be a part of, and the folks at ClifBar were fantastic to work with.

Minnesota State Fair bus side ads

I was asked to come up with some illustrations to promote the Minnesota State Fair on bus sides. I was provided with the text and left to come up with the imagery. I did six in all, one will only be seen in western Wisconsin.

I met some great people through Flickr when searching for reference photos. Everyone I contacted was gracious enough to let me use their image as a base. Thanks again!

So if you are around the Twin Cities and see a bus go by, check out the ads!

Maitland Hardware inspired by Beetlejuice

The Maitlands owned a store in Winter River prior to their accident on the bridge. This shirt pays homage to their small store next to the barber shop. I've had this in my head for a while and wanted to get it out. So here it is. Could be some variations coming soon.

Not available as a tshirt at this time.

Possible resurrection of the Nimbus shirt

Same design, different colour. I've submitted it to Qwertee to see if it can rise again. Head on over and vote for it, if you missed it the first time. Thanks.

New Vader shirt up at

The great folks at asked me to come up with something Star Wars related for a tshirt, which is now available. They liked my He Man/Skeletor faux concert poster so I used that as inspiration.

This design went through a few versions before I came to this. It was always going to be of Vader's helmet, the problem was what elements to use to create the look. I'll try to post a couple of the early versions later tonight.
