Made In America : A Native Exhibition

Over the past couple of months I have had the pleasure of working with my friends Yis andLeah to put together easily the largest group show that I have ever been a part of. "Made In America: A Native Exhibition" features over forty artists/friends all contributing work loosely based on this interesting country of ours. We chose this theme because we wanted something culturally relevant, yet broad enough for folks to have varied reactions and through their respective media. The opening reception will take place on June 4th at the TRUST Gallery (formerly the F.U.E.L. Collection, and the Real World Philadelphia house before that) and will go from 6 -10 pm. There will be live performances by: Dragonzord, Tigersapien, and Univox!

90's Tribute: Ghost World (comic)... for The Autumn Society of Philadelphia

Oscar Armelles - Fyling man

Here is one of the latest illustrations I created. I'm sure loads of people that live in a big city feel like that at 8am in the morning on their way to work. The same illustration in landscape was used for an online magazine for creatives as their landing page.

I've been very, very busy doing some great work for Specsavers (soon to be seen) so I've not been doing much else, but now that the project is finish I'll be able to post more work here. :)

Sweet Station

This is the corner of Canal street and Bowery. Whenever I see this place it doesn't look like it belongs in New York. It's impossible to draw moving cars. So a good trick is to draw the scene without the cars. Then go around the streets looking for parked cars. Select one you like. Position yourself at the right angle for the drawing. Then you can take your time sketching the car. Now people will think you are some kind of genius who can capture moving cars at a glance.
I recently got mentioned on a cool blog called sweet station.

The Man Who Draws Buns

He steadies the little hardbound book on his leg, putting pencil to paper on a page between the next and last—naturally.

Squinting, he continues, drawing anything that comes to mind. Partridges in profile, a disheveled rake in platform shoes, and of course, buns—many, many naked buns: The buns of fantastically stubby, balding men whose walking-on-air leaps of joy so perfectly showcase a certain golden doughy confidence, the viewer's given no choice but to share in at least a bit of what they have... by the pound, after pound—fancy, fancy freedom.

So jump, my gelatinous friends! Jump!

Google versus Apple

Satire for the Dutch news website, about the rise of the Google Android operating system.

Wizards of the Coast

Several months back, I had a great opportunity to work on some illustrations for a book coming out now from Wizards of the Coast for the Dungeons & Dragons line. I was very excited, as I used to buy D&D books as a kid just for the art. So when the AD there asked me if I wanted in, hellz yeah. My "style" does not fit the normal D&D wold, but Jon, the AD wanted to try an new approach. SOmething never done before. So he gathered up a few out of the norm illustrators for the project. I am happy and thankful to be one of them.

It has been VERY hard for me to not post them till publication. So if you are near any major book store, look for it. Three more spots coming, so check back!

Here is the book!

Iron Man Sketch in Brushes

Something I played around with last night. Done in Brushes for iPhone. This time, instead of relying on the Pogo stylus, I decided to use my finger to draw and color. Kind of liked it better.
