Fast but Interesting

I've been looking for ways to make digital art from my drawings in the simplest yet still interesting ways. Here I made the marker scribble first and drew black lines over it. Then I surrounded the image in green marker like a green screen in video. I photographed the image and emailed it to myself. Opened it in Photoshop and removed the green and easily cut out the figure. I pasted it over a photograph (I love rusted metal). I then selected some of the marker that went out of the lines and moved it to a separate layer (cut and paste). I then reduced the opacity. I'm liking the feel of it and it sure was fast. This technique has potential.

"Inked" is now available

I've written a book of stories about my paintings and I've posted it on so that it can be published on demand. Here's the link:

I'm really loving the Brushes App on the iPhone. I was sceptical but
it's the zooming that makes it work. Here's a picture I drew over a
photo I took of 42nd Steet.

Did I say I don't like making cute drawings?

I lied. I like doing any drawings where the linework is dynamic and the characters are "real". Here is a link to a flickr set of "cute" drawings I collected from my hard drive.

The Pondering Wolf Video on YouTube

I finally uploaded a video to Youtube. It's a little experiment in stop motion collage.

Off the Wall/On the Wall @ City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport, CT

In March, I curated a show at City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport, CT focusing on artists that use cartooning imagery in their work. (I'm finally getting around to posting the information.) This was my first curating experience and it was a blast. It was an exciting and fun show, the most successful for the gallery. The artists were great to work with and the gallery staff were extremely supportive.

I gave a lecture on cartooning as a language which you can read here.

Besides the awesome artwork, the show included an art "happening" where a large piece of Tyvek was placed on a wall with a cup of sharpie markers and the public was invited to write and draw whatever they wanted. We got a lot of great contributions from people in the neighborhood as well as visitors.

Here's a picture of the fun (with Looketha's paintings in the background):

Moses Jaen, one of the artists posted a great slide show of the pics he took:

Here are links to some of the press coverage we got. You may have to scroll to the bottom of some of these and some may have been archived (requiring an account to download):

Enough about process...let's talk content

People often ask me why my work is so dark (which is funny because compared to the lowbrow/pop-surrealist artists, I'm pretty tame.) I'm not necessarily a dark person. I have many aspects of my personality and feelings. The positive feelings I have already have outlets: I tell people I love them, I hug my children, I laugh like a nut when I think something is funny. The negative feelings however, can be bottled up. They are important though. Negative feelings are really the fuel for creativity and the willingness to change and grow. My art is an opportunity to express these feelings, but this is only part of what I am.
