If you came to Barbarian then you saw the skulls and the cape made of animal hide. Paintings will be up at Barefoot thru Sept. Work by Pugnetti, Reiji, Kyle Pellet, Mike Martinez, Jimmy Lam, and Me.

I ran into Sean Boyles at the event and he showed me a sketchbook page he'd done of the Marvel roster and it moved me to tears. Here is a Wolverine from a few days back. I did it in my new base of operations: the Alamo Square hood of SF. I've got a great wood desk here that I am loving. You can see it creeping into the photo. I've got a Cyclops and Beast sitting on the drawing board too. But for now you just get Wolverine. This one is for all my kin. With love. You know exactly who you are.


Save the date: Saturday Sept 26th.
I'll be live painting in Golden Gate park for the Indy Arts Festival. Come out and watch me work a panel in the bright sun light.


Dance to this now in your room.

Barbarian pt. 5

Matt Pug from Beastlore has got us all painting Barbarians for his upcoming Barbarian show. The show goes down at Barefoot in San Jose running thru September. There will be an opening night bash on the fifth. Most of my pieces are from earlier this year, but I revisited the set and just finished up these two today. Sometimes it feels good to be a Barbarian again.

"I made a small color Jeeg screenprint last week, for no reason at all, really, just because he's been on my mind. I wanted have someplace tangible to place the thought so I could stop carrying it around with me, stuck inside my head."
