Freaks and Geeks

I'm clearing a lot of files off of my computer. Going through them I found these.

When I was making my pieces for the Judd Apatow show at Gallery 1988 last December, I realized that I couldn't fit them on my scanner and would have to photograph them instead. I also ended up scanning the figures in pairs against a different background before i glued them to their actual backgrounds, just to have clean scans of them.

I was never happy with Daniel's face, and this was the best of three attempts and batches of sketches. Everyone else though, I was pretty happy with.

Random Objects In My Office

It's been a long time since I've posted any random objects from my office. I've done it so infrequently that I think that all of the previous photos each depict a different office.

This one is a Warner Brothers Store exclusive from the mid-90s. This is a set of Two-Face bookends based on the character design from Batman the Animated Series. I've never used them as bookends, but instead have always displayed them as a bust.

Here's a sneak peak of the piece I did for the "Get a Room" show which opens at the Bottleneck Gallery this Friday. It's a 3-D cut paper assemblage based on Jean Cocteau's masterpiece, La Belle et La Bete (1946).

I'm Now on Tumblr

I've finally decided to open a Tumblr account.

Right now I'll probably use it as a promotional tool; an additional platform to showcase my work. It will have a more complete collection of my collage work than my flickr account that I'm currently using as my online gallery, and while there won't be anything I don't show here, it will be easier to see everything all in one place than it is to do so here. This blog will still be the place to find out about my work in more depth and will be the place I share other things that I find of interest.

If you're interested in following it, my tumblr account can be found here.

In Stores Today

SCOOBY-DOO! Where Are You? #30 makes its debut at a comic book store near you today. It includes a story written by me. It's a "Velma's Monsters of the World" story about the kraken. This story initially appeared way back in Scooby-Doo #121 (August 2007) and is not new.

Here's DC's solicitation information, and a preview of the issue itself.

Ask Me Anything #27

It's the first Monday of the month, and the new year, and time for "Ask Me Anything."  I'll field any questions and try and answer them throughout the month.

Questions can be about anything at all; my work, my influences, my opinions, my favorites, least favorites, stuff I've watched, read, looked at, eaten, or listened to, or anything else you might want to know, and that I might have an answer for. Head down to the comment section and post your question. I'll either post my answer in the comment section as well, or answer it in a special post all its own sometime later in the month.

Please take the time to view the previous questions so that we don't wind up with a lot of repetition. I've been asked a lot of good, thought provoking questions in the past as well as some really banal ones, all of which I tried to answer. You can see the previous questions by visiting Ask Me Anything  #1#2 ,  #3#4#5#6 , #7 , #8#9,  #10,  #11,  #12 , #13#14,  #15 , #16#17 , #18 , #19,  #20,  #21#22,  #23#24#25, and #26.  Answers not found following the questions can be found in the archives section for each associated month under Ask Me Anything.

Now ask away.
