Gearing Up For Halloween & Vine

It's hard to believe the Halloween & Vine art show in Petaluma, CA is less than 2 months away! I have started working harder at having new designs ready for the show. I hope to have several items exclusive to that event.

First up, these are the 2 prototype "Hell Fire Lanterns" The final piece will have a variation of the insert to have more impact. This measures about 7" x 9". One side is fully illustrated, the other has cut away features to act as a lantern. I am only making 10 of these, not counting these 2 prototypes.

I have been wanting to do a jointed cat piece for sometime, and finally just finished this design. It measures about 12" x 17" when fully extended. I will make 20 of this design.

Finally, it's about time to release the 4th volume of my book, "10/31". This is the rough sketch for the front cover painting, more info to come in late August.

After 5 and a half years of togetherness & 1 year of home ownership, Kathy & I are engaged. Hooray! Thanks for saying yes.... :-)

Here we are dressed as Beef & Broccoli for this last Mardi Gras

I have been really backed up with getting things done these last couple weeks with all that has been going on, but I did just get a Halloween postcard sized painting done & listed on ebay called "Halitosis"

New Wacky Packages!

I have two pieces in the Just released series 6 of Topps Wacky Packages postcards. Lice is painted from a gag by Paul Harris and is a postcard. H8 is from a gag by Mike Dantzer & Mark Parisi and is a bonus card. Both pieces are available in the set Topps is selling for $6.95. The limited edition sets which featured a hand drawn sketch card, artist Bio Cards, & a bonus card other than H8 sold out in less than 2 hours. Here are scans of the 2 original paintings.

A big thanks to everyone at Topps involved in hiring me to paint these, it's an honor & I appreciate it!
