Astronauts on the town.

Hey internet, I’ve got an astronaut up in Seattle somewhere.PCalavera_BlastOff

This guy lived in my garage for about 6 weeks while I worked on him, and is now loose in Seattle somewhere. Enjoy him. The project was done through the Museum of Flight to celebrate their 50th year teaching museums how to fly, or flies about museums, I was never really clear on that. Anyhow, I think he’s in Tukwila somewhere right now, then moves to Bellevue, before ending up back at the Museum at the end of Summer.


 

In other news, I got a new pen, so you get a new Panda Bunny.dark PB11″x14″ ink on bristol. A little bit morose, but that’s what this pen is like, I guess. Haven’t fully decided what I think of it.


 

Finally, my gallery, Gallery Boom in Tumwater, has a GoFundMe thing going, apparently. So check that out.

Calavara at the Capitol Theater

So, the gallery at the Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia is all full up of my artwork. You should really go by there, catch a movie, and check it out. The upstairs artwork is all the tiny lines drawing I’ve been doing over the last couple of months, but in the main area, next to the screen, I put together these big colorful monsters as a sort of installation.

Whatta Wait For Panda Bunny

For some reason it’s been over a month since I last posted. Distracted by squirrels, I guess.  Tis the season. Enjoy some Panda Bunny to make up for it.

Anyhow, even though I haven’t posted, I haven’t slacked off on work, though. I continued producing several more pieces for my Tiny Lines stuff (all the art I’ve posted here whenever I was still posting), including writing and illustrating a new book sorta in the style. I’m not sure when it will be out because the printers I use are being crazy slow about getting back to me. It was supposed to be out this week in time for the Olympia Comics Fest this weekend, which I’ll be at as a vendor. Come on by this Saturday and wish me Happy Birthday! I’ll have a new Tiny Lines coffee mug, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Speaking of the Tiny Lines stuff, I’ll be meeting later today at OFS to begin putting a bunch of it up as their gallery show there, which is pretty slick. Should be done sometime this week.

I’m mired in inking little lines all over a 6ft Astronaut for the Museum of Flight up in Seattle, which is pretty awesome, though a lot of work. I’ll let you know when more info is out about this and then when and where it can be viewed in public.

There you go.

Somewhere out there, I think I did another blue PB, but I can’t find it… somewhere in the stacks of art in my office, I guess, or maybe I sold it. Who knows!

Just playing around with some stuff. Stepping back, these guys bring some Yashitomo Nara stuff to my mind, though I’m not sure why, since they really look nothing like his work. Whatevs. I have a 4th colored, but not inked. I don’t know if I like these, yet.
