Ahhhh, fall. Quite possibly one of the best times of year, and undoubtedly..a busy time for an artist like me. This year is no exception and as anticipated I find myself stepping off of a 5 week creative blur with several impressive new pieces to share with you, each different and unique in it’s own unusual way.
Kicking off September right, my dream creature for La Luz de Jesus Gallery’s much anticipated “Coaster Show”. For those of you outside Hollywood, CA: La Luz de Jesus Gallery has quite the reputation for being an ever-evolving arena of ground-breaking and original art shows, bizarre pop culture festivities, creative book signings, and yes,… even rogue taxidermy demos. Seeking to outdo themselves a second time around (the first show was a smash success of course, but why settle) the La Luz team invited virtually everyone from the fine art circuit to accept, tinker, and return what would later be over 1,500 mini masterpieces of lowbrow coasterific art. But why Coasters you ask? To coincide with LA’s Beer week of course, and to remind the world of the inherent beauty of approachable, hilarious, absurd art for drunken patrons sake. This is my favorite kind of show: over-the-top and sometimes, even under the belt line.
Here’s my contribution; a dreamy Raven I dreamed up, aptly named: “Dream Raven” (I know, I know..I’m a master with words.)
