Nano-post: Chinashop Returns, Biorequiem Stickers Now Available!

It’s been a whirlwind over here. Between last week’s Coilhouse residency on Whitechapel, Issue 04 selling out, working on Issue 05 content, shooting naked girls, doing coverage for Chinashop, and planning a small party [about which I will tell you later], I’ve barely got time to breathe. However! I come up for air bearing news of hot girls and art. Indeed Chinashop is back from winter break and just in time for me to cover the recent Doctor Sketchy Marathon, …

Inkdrops 007 – The Endless Commission Now Available

Last month mister Christopher Hand commissioned a drawing, loosely inspired by Neli Gaiman’s Delirium and Death. Let it be known that Sandman was the single most inspiring comic book of my youth. I didn’t really get into comics [or, at the time, singular “comic”] until I was 15. Gaiman’s use of Greek mythology resonated with me, as that happened to be some of my favorite reading material growing up. His use of alluring goths also appealed to my then-extra-black soul, …

Inkdrops 006 – Endless Commission

I think I might be typing this from beyond the grave. Today I: Woke up, evaluated condition Realized I was, possibly, even more sick than yesterday [ sweet!] Found a way to cope by slumping over a desk, refusing to speak, and drawing from 9am to 2pm Made the best garlic mashed potatoes I’ve ever made. Coincidentally, the first time I ever made garlic mashed potatoes. Retreated back to bed, where we watched Inglorious Basterds That’s all I got. Except …

Inkdrops 005 – New Print, Honeydrip, Complete

Presenting Honeydrip, completed just in time for the Haute Macabre exhibit. It’s a biggun, comparatively speaking – drawn on 17×22 Bristol board, then cut out mercilessly for scanning. This was initially meant to be a painting, but I got as far as two layers of paint before realizing it wasn’t at all what I wanted from the piece. A special, one-of-a-kind version of it is going in the show like this, instead. Honeydrip is a sort of follow-up to Nectar …

Inkdrops 004 – Honeydrip

I’m down with a nasty cold, hopped up on Indian herbs, Genmaicha, and enough honey to drown in. Fairly sure most of my brain and body have shut down to give my drawing arm power. In fact, the arm is typing this entirely on its own. The sticky fruit of my labor, thus far. Not sure whether I’ll begin digitizing this today, as I’m being yelled at to “get the fuck in bed and get some sleep”.

Art Show: L.A. Noir – The Dark Side of Sunny California

Achtung, Angel City residents! On October 3 and 4 The Centipede* and its secret counterpart [glimpse below] will be on display at the location above, for those two days only. What makes this especially superb is the fact that L.A. Noir will be held in a beautiful house instead of yet another white gallery space. It’s a party, it’s an art show and there’s going to be food and entertainment. I’m not actually sure what the entertainment will consist of, …

Inkdrops 001

A friend of mine is hosting an annual art show – a group of friends making art on a given theme. This year’s theme is LA Noir. Got the Noir part down, still not sure about LA, however. In any event, here’s stage two of a little damsel and her trusty yet vicious centipede boa. Stage three will involve scanning and digitizing.

What day is this?

It’s been an intense “weekend” of camping at a hotel, shooting two models, dressing up [wore these], running downtown to the Hive for the reception [lovely surprise: ran into my mom and Q], finally eating, collapsing into hotel bed back in Hollywood, only to wake up at 7 to shoot again. Very tired, but I did have excellent French toast croissant at Grub with Ross and The D a few hours ago. Wee Micron peacefully slumbers at my feet, exhausted …
