So yeah, I got featured on the front page of the Horror Sleaze Trash! website! They included several of my paintings, and some of my comic strip work. Go check it out!

Many thanks to founder/editor/poet Ben John Smith for the shoutout. You can find his poetry, photography, and even some drawings on the site. While you’re there, make sure to grab a copy of each of his books, they’re fantastic.

His newest book, White White White, can be purchased here as well. Show some support!

Anywho, that’s about it. Just working on some paintings and mainlining coffee.

Til next time kids!

A new day dawns…

I’ll do all the formalities later, but for now, welcome!

For those who don’t know, I’m a painter/ illustrator in the greatest city in the world, New Orleans, LA. I’ll post some work and links later, but for the most part, I paint figures and nudes. I’m also writing and drawing several comic strips as well, which I’ll be posting on here. I like coffee, and bourbon, and porn. And classic comics and cartoons.

To catch everyone up, I took a little over a year off from the artist life to go work in the oilfields (as a cook in the housing lodges) and save up some money to outfit my studio with more high end equipment, and to buy myself some time to work on projects that might not pay off immediately. Well, now I’ve been back for about 2 weeks, and after catching up on some rest, and doing some early spring cleaning, I’m ready to rock and roll.

One of the first orders of business was enabling myself to make and sell my own high quality giclee art prints. The cost of having prints made can sometimes be pretty pricey, so I thought, why not just bite the bullet, save up, and buy my own printer. It’s not cheap, by any means, and there’s lots of upkeep involved, but in the long run, it lets me be in charge of the quality and variety of my work. And if times get tough, I can always pick up printing jobs to get by.

So, 2 days after ordering, it came in. I’ll spare you the technical details of setting it up, but for the most part, it was pretty painless. It’s a Canon ImagePrGraf6400, and her name is Mathilda.

As you can see, she’s just fucking beautiful. I’m a proud papa.

So yeah, I’d write more, but it’s Carnival season, and I have some parades to get ready for.

Till next time!
