Hey monsters fans!
It's been a long time...I know you still feel the monster love.
If you're in the Philadelphia area and want to attend an awesome live monster art opening where I'll be showing lots of monsters from the 365 Monsters project alongside some newer monster artworks, stop by Aspiring Artists of the Earth: 174 S Main St (Route 313), Dublin, PA 18917 on October 12th from 6-9.  If you can't make it to the opening, don't worry...the show will be up through 11/11/13.  Can't make it to the show period?  Still want to snag your won piece of monster art?  Email me with the monster(s) you've been thinkin on and I'll happily let you know if they're available.  I hope to have available monsters for sale on my site ( soon enough.

Art swap: done but not forgotten

As you all know, the art swap was a huge success. Both sides walked away with something great for their studio/home and cartoon bunnies cheered like there was no tomorrow.
I know that I'm WAY happy with my new zombie brush holder. Skeletaldropkick did an excellent job. I'm posting a pic because it's too cool not to share. Plus I haven't had any paint spill on him yet. I'm hoping to keep it that way for as long as possible.

Art swap in effect!

The art swap is on!
A little while back I met a fellow monster artist on etsy. She makes excellent utilitarian ceramic monster items for your home, studio, or lair. Check out her work:

She made me a fantastic zombie brush holder for my studio. I created a monster painting themed to fit in with some of her creations called "Ochibos". The new monster is on his way to her and the brush holder will be here soon (but not soon enough:) While we wait very impatiently, here is a pic of this new monster and his story:

Stompchompibos are tiny critters that came about as warm weather tadpoles evolved and moved onto land. They reside near creeks and streams to stay supple. When litter is dropped on the ground, Stompchompobos spring into action. They soar through the air with tiny tentacle nub-arms flapping all the way. Tough feet smash the offending trash into tiny little chompable bits to be eaten and never seen again.

"Stompchompibo" is a 10" x 8" oil painting on canvas board.

A monstery Valentine's Day

Corey the owlbear crunched and slammed his way through the deep dark silent forest. As he crashed into a moondrenched clearing he came to a stop. Hidden there from public view was a glistening pond with one silent resident. When he saw Alex everything stopped for him. Her speckled tentacles floated through the dark pool and she looked up at him with a look he'd never forget and Corey began to sing.

Sebastian: radioactive city smasher

I didn't mean to leave you monster lovers out in the cold for so long. Although I know you're dying to see the finished piece so here it is.
And yes it's true...I couldn't stay away for too long. There are some great monster portraits coming up including whole families and musicians. Stay tuned!

After a mysterious exposure to radiation from a nearby solar event, Sebastion grew to ridiculous proportions. Now his size matched his personality and nothing, not even Philly) could stand in his way.
