AMERICAN CHEESE GALLERY SHOW AT SOTHEBY'S NYC!!!

YAI supports people of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities in achieving the fullest life possible by creating new opportunities for living, loving, working and learning through programs that empower and enhance the lives of thousands of people and their families.


My youngest sister Jennifer has always had an interest in the arts. Much like myself she grew up with a love for animated films and comics. When Disney kicked off their new brand of animated films starting with The LITTLE MERMAID and BEAUTY And The BEAST we watched them together in awe of the animation style. I passed down my early collected volumes of Eastman and Laird TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES graphic novels to her and she still has a love for the turtles in their latest TMNT live action films,cartoons and comics. (Me not so much!)

Jennifer is a part of the YAI ARTS program and her participation in the program has seen her talent flourish dramatically and given her the opportunity to exhibit her art in prominent galleries which has been a great confidence builder for her. On February 2nd I had the pleasure to attend a YAI Arts Show Jennifer was participating in along with several other talented young adults at the Sotheby's Art House in Uptown Manhattan! The name of the show was AMERICAN CHEESE:A Celebration of Pop Culture Icons and Celebrity.


Jennifer was pretty excited for the show, as was I and my wife Kim, but what we did not expect was to see how much of Jennifer's work was prominently on display. Above the escalator in the lobby was a huge computer screen displaying rotating images from various shows currently on display at Sotheby's and Jennifer's work was used to advertise the AMERICAN CHEESE show!



When we went up the escalator for the show the first thing you face is a wall displaying 4 portraits (Frida Kahlo, Lucille Ball, Steve Urkel and Bruce Lee) all illustrated by Jennifer! The postcard used to promote the show used Jennifer's Steve Urkel art! And to top it all off she SOLD 3 PIECES! She made more money in one 2-hour gallery event than I've ever made at any one day comic convention! Needless to say me, my wife Kim, my Mom and Aunt, the YAI program teachers and event organizers were all very proud of Jennifer.



The AMERICAN CHEESE show is currently still on display at Sotheby's but only until Wednesday, February 8th. If you are in the New York area and interested in seeing artwork that is as good if not BETTER than any modernist or abstract art on display in most modern art museums please check out the show.

DUMP TRUMP SHOP!!!!


The recent U.S. election results has left myself and many Americans disheartened,devastated and fearful about our future as a progressive nation. I took a few hours off from my regularly scheduled freelance workload to try and purge my anger creatively through my art. After drawing this tattoo/flash art inspired "DUMP TRUMP" piece I dusted off my old CAFE PRESS account and put this art on a bunch of T-Shirts, Buttons and other items. Through the sale of these items I'm hoping to raise some money to donate to various organizations who under the Trump/Pence regime are being threatened such as Planned Parenthood and/or LGBTQ charities. So if you're anti-Trump and looking for an alternative way to voice your opinion please give my DUMP TRUMP shop a look see. If you don't want to buy anything please feel free to share or link this post on whatever social media you like. The store link is below:

ROBO-MONSTER!!!



ART SHOW PALOOZA!!!

A small collection of iPhone pics from 2 art shows over 3 consecutive days.
This year's PANCAKES & BOOZE show was at the M1-5 Lounge. The space was pretty big despite the sizeable stage up front,huge bar in the center and the seating booths that ran along one side of the room. Display space was created by connecting large pieces of dry wall that snaked around the room to form a maze of wall art! Attending a late night, downtown, indie art show in the middle of a work week was something i hadn't done in awhile and i never had my art in a show like this before so i wasn't sure what exactly to expect. What i got was 2 jam packed nights with artists creating art in various genres and mediums: street art, fine art and comic art drawn, sculpted and painted on paper, canvas and people. Body painters, cosplayers, goths, hipsters, zombies, stand up comedians, celebrities and deejays spinning awesome, old school hip-hop at a decibel level i am no longer comfortable with at my age. There were also free pancakes being grilled up all night but i didn't have any.


I actually took 2 days off of work for this because i knew there would be one busy day and two late nights involved. Wall hanging was between 12-5 pm. I got there by 2:30 pm but by then wall space was already tight. Thankfully my pieces weren't too big. I ended up with a bit of an odd spot but there was a bench along side the wall right in front of my art so i could sit, drink, draw and introduce myself to any passers by who stopped to take a look at my stuff. Thankfully there was also enough space to hang my bio,business cards and USA GIRL sticker display with my SPIDER-MAN vs BATMAN vs SHARKNADO art. I didn't sell anything on night one but lowered my prices on night two hoping not to schlep all my art back home in defeat. I ended up selling the RAMONES piece.


Over the two nights i chatted up a few cool people and saw a bunch of great art. Apologies for not being able to add artist credits to everyone but there were too many names for my feeble mind to keep track of. If you see your art here and it wasn't tagged leave your info in the comments.

I spent the first night of the show mostly drinking and hanging out but night two was spent mostly drinking and sitting and sketching and drinking some more. At the end of the night (Which for me was around 8 pm-The show ran to 2 am.) i collected my other two pieces and tacked my drunk sketch on the wall for whomever to have. I hope it found a good home.


The next day i was back in the office. I worked my 9 to 6 and was then off to VINYL FANTASY Records & Comics in Bushwick, Brooklyn to drink FREE beer and eat homemade cupcakes courtesy of Ilana and Joe, the lovely couple who own and operate the shop.

I did this WALKING DEAD poster ages ago. It depicts an imagined storyline of an adult, battle weary Carl and his sister Judith (aka Lil' Asskicker) on the road alone with the items of their fallen friends and family-Rick's hat, Michonne's sword and Daryl's bike. I thought I put enough clues in the art so that people would get it but in the end I got everything from sincere compliments to bewildered looks and I've never sold a single one of these posters since I printed 20 of them back in 2013. So i took them with me to VINYL FANTASY to give away because why the hell not. Maybe they still have some left. But there's only one way for you to find out....Visit VINYL FANTASY and go get'em!

VINYL FANTASY also has a few copies of my mini-comic MANBOY N' Friends! It's all the way in the back hiding in shame and slowly dying from loneliness. Front and center is my man Eli Neugeboren​'s comic SHARKARY VS TSUNAMI CRAB! He also did that badass BOWIE postcard.

A close up shot of my art on the wall. It's framed and for sale so contact VINYL FANTASY (www.facebook.com/Vinylfantasybk) for sale prices and info.

Thanks again to VINYL FANTASY and PANCAKES & BOOZE for letting me be a part of their shows. Hope to do more shows with you all again soon!
