This is how the 'best' one turned out.
 Merry Christmas!

Q Pop: Black Christmas Show

Opening today at the Q Pop Gallery is the horror themed exhibition called 'Black Christmas.' I went to the preview last night and the artwork as amazing! People are so creative with their submissions, it's a show everyone should see. The show will be open from December 15th - 30th, go check it out while you can!

This was my submission for the show, called 'Love and Gore.' While I was conceiving the idea for this piece, I thought of a woman getting murdered coming home from work from a vengeful ex-lover. Perhaps coming home from a work Christmas party?

Tokusatsu at Q Pop

Last Saturday I got to be apart of the Japanese sci-fi exhibition called Tokusatsu. I'm not super familiar with the genre, but I am always grateful when I get to draw monsters! Here is my final piece called 'King Ghidora.'
I made him using a linoleum print. It's a process where you carve into a linoleum block and roll ink on it and stamp the paper layer by layer. I'm not going to lie, it was harder than I anticipated and I almost gave up twice. Out of six papers I started with, only one really turned out.
 The gallery show was completely packed! There were food trucks, a costume contest, toys, all sorts of fun things, and AMAZING art. There were a ton of awesome pieces that you can still check out at the store in Little Tokyo or the Q Pop online store.

QPop Show!

The QPop show was great! It was very cool to see everyone's different takes on what could be done with black ink. I bought one of Louis Del Carmen's beautiful pieces.

Today, I found out I was featured on Super Punch! Thanks John Struan, I'm glad you liked my piece. Also BIG thanks to Chris Mitchell for letting me exhibit!

QPop Black & White Show

QPop Gallery in Downtown LA is having a Black and White show this Saturday the seventh! Pieces are black and white only, so I did these two pieces with ink, a brush and a quill pen. There are lots of awesome artists that are going to be there, so if you're nearby, come on out!

UPDATE: Check out the QPop blog that features my work!!!

Demon Sisters

I'm home sick today, but I get an opportunity to do actual art instead of running all around town! So yay stomach bug!
