Moonrise Kingdom Review

Moonrise Kingdom Review

    I really liked Moonrise Kingdom!  Wes Anderson can be pretentious, but I love his visual aesthetic, and I really respect that he is able to make a movie where you can see his touch in every detail.  Also, this.     (Bill Murray is dead on about the costumes.)
Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show

Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show

  Reading Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles for the first time was an unsettling experience.  This was back in middle school, and I must have been eleven?  Twelve?  Some time around that age.  I loved sci-fi, but to that point I had mostly read Isaac Asimov’s stuff, which is generally lighter and more optimistic, I think.  He...
A Love Supreme

A Love Supreme

When I fell in love with jazz, I fell in love with John Coltrane.  I remember the moment vividly – I was in middle school, probably in the eighth grade, and I was seeing my friends in the school jazz band play a concert.  I was a bit drowsy, as I get during some concerts,...
Beer is Culture!

Beer is Culture!

  I made this piece a month or so ago as an entry for Sixpoint Brewery’s annual “Beer is Culture” art and design competition, and I came away with third place!  Woohoo!  My first art win, oh it feels so nice.  They even did a nice little interview with me on their blog, which you...
Thanks for the Wild Rumpus

Thanks for the Wild Rumpus

  I woke up today to the news that Maurice Sendak has passed on.  He was a truly brilliant artist, and I while I loved his books growing up, they’re no less powerful an influence on me today.  Thank you, sir, for your amazing work.

  Well, summer’s almost here!  Don’t pretend you’re not thinking about this, too.
Town on Fire

Town on Fire

  Another western-inspired warmup.  I particularly like how the flames turned out.  He’s a bad dude!   Also!  I have new things for you to spend your money on in my store!
Portrait - John Doyle

Portrait – John Doyle

  And to round out my Girl Walk series, here’s John Doyle as the Creep!  One of the things that I really love about the whole piece is how it showcases each of the dancers’ wildly different styles, and Mr. Doyle’s performance was one of my favorite threads.  I think the best way to describe...
Portrait - Dai Omiya

Portrait – Dai Omiya

  This is getting to be a really fun series!  Dai Omiya is another of the principles of Girl Walk//All Day, and is one hell of a tap dancer as the Gentleman.  One of the exciting things about the project is the aspect of urban exploration, and the way it deals with public space.  Seeing...
Portrait - Anne Marsen

Portrait – Anne Marsen

    Anne Marsen is a superbly talented dancer, and one of the principles of Girl Walk//All Day, a feature-length film/music video set to Girl Talk’s album All Day.  I had the pleasure of attending a dance party/screening of it last night at the New England Conservatory, and I loved the infectious joy of Ms. Marsen’s performance....
Portrait - Richard Feynman

Portrait – Richard Feynman

  I’ve started doing some quick portraits as inking warmups, and I really like how this one turned out.  Richard Feynman was one of the scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project, the investigative committee after the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle, and a visionary in how science should be taught.  A brilliant, funny man,...
