Death of the 60s Pt. I

i was part of a group art show at Swing House here in Hollywood last weekend, here's the drawings i came up with:

"Death of the 60s: The Murder of Gary Hinman" - i've been reading a lot about the Manson murders, thinking about how they relate to the end of the 60s & what that meant for America, that sorta thing. this is how i visualized the mysterious circumstances of the first Manson-related killing, of Gary Hinman, which seems to have set off the entire bizarre series of events.

this is a quick study of Charlie & a pistol i did at the beginning of a long night of inking, it turned out OK so i hung it up

"Found Collage: Helter Skelter 1" - this is my (large) ink drawing of a page from Vincent Bugliosi's 'Helter Skelter' about the Manson murders

"Found Collage: Helter Skelter 2" - another image from 'Helter Skelter'

a photo of my lady, Laura, and myself at the show! Click on image for more photos from that night.

Dog Blog

This is a drawing of my dog, Niko. She's probably sitting there thinking, 'Man, that dude is drawing me again. He better hurry up 'cuz I ain't holding still for that damn long. In fact, it's been long enough. Shoot, he can make the rest up, it just looks like a buncha little black lines anyways. I need to lick something. And damn, dude, change the channel! You've already seen this episode of "I Love Money!" You watch too much celebreality! I'm getting sick of it. Man, I'm gonna go lick something. Seriously.'

The Illustrated Ape

i got asked by James & Joe at the Illustrated Ape, a cool British arts magazine, to contribute to their photography issue (#26). the idea was that illustrators would create photographic self-portraits. the above photo is what i came up with - a segment of the bulletin board that hangs in our kitchen.

muchas gracias to my, er, assistant, Laura, for this one

The Hills Burn! (When They Pee)

here is the new Vacation poster, it's pretty neat, huh? that's not real blood, in case you were worried. it's movie blood. it's CGI.

Appalling Apparel

this poster i drew for my band, the Vacation, got deleted from myspace. that old fart Rupert Murdoch must not like cartoon camel toe!

"get that two dimensional skank offa my billion dollar social networking site, Tom!"
"yes sir, Mr. Murdoch, right away!"

Mr. Murdoch drinks from all of our milkshakes, it seems.
