"Year of the Snake" @Giant Robot + "Portrait Show" @Pony Club!

 It's been a busy winter! Here's more:

 I have a piece in Giant Robot's upcoming February show "Year of the Snake" which opens this Saturday! (Facebook event here) I did an inked and painted piece on 8" x 16" wood panel, below is a preview of what I worked on for the show.

I also have a piece in Pony Club Gallery's upcoming "Portrait Show"! My studio mate Aya and I got paired up to do portraits of each other and we had fun with it. :)

Here's a photo studio mate Tory took of me and Aya painting the other's portrait.

Here are the results!

"Creatures of Ghost Island" at Allegory Gallery.

I have a show with lots of new paintings at Allegory Gallery which opens this Friday and will run throughout the month of February. The show will feature 10 new pieces, 8 watercolor/acrylic/inked pieces and 2 small silkscreened prints. The piece shown above "Creatures of Ghost Island" is the large piece that ties everything together. The other medium-small pieces depict scenes and characters that take place and exist on this island. I plan on updating my website soon with all the new things I've done this past year and I will also include these new works. In the mean time, here are some process photos that were taken over the past 2 months (via my instagram)

"Witch", "Don't Be Scared", "Friends, Me and You"

In progress, "Take Me There (Ghost Wolf)"

"Mushroom Forest"

Another ghost piece in progress.
