APOCRYPHA November 22nd - December 6th at THE COTTON CANDY MACHINE





Here are a few of the new pieces that will be on display at THE COTTON CANDY MACHINE November 22nd thorugh December 6th for my show "APOCRYPHA" These pieces focus on the mythological influence in art and the shared imagery and symbols of different religions and belief systems. The show will be in the back space of the gallery and the front space will be showing "NEW MAPS OF THE ABYSS" by the incredible ARIK ROPER and THE ART OF SKINNER. It has been a fun and exciting challenge to make preparations for the show and an excellent learning experience. The show will consist of several new works and several original commissioned works for bands like DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT, and KADAVAR and the gallery will also be unveiling a brand new piece by LORI NELSON on the opening night, 7-11 pm.

MIDNITE COLLECTIVE's COMMUNION II "OUT OF THE WOODS"



My finished submission for COMMUNION II: "OUT OF THE WOODS" by MIDNITE COLLECTIVE. This piece along with an original shirt design for LOCUSTA and the original cover artwork for WOODS OF DESOLATION's "AS THE STARS" were on view this weekend in LA. The show featured the work of Mike Lawrence, Shaun Beaudry, Krist Mort, Farron Loathing, Jean Saiz, View From the Coffin, and Sebastian Mazuera, with performances by SORXE, COUGH, ATRIARCH, and INVDRS. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but I find it hard to image that the event wasn't an amazing time.

ABYSSAL tour poster design


Recently finished poster design for the Mexican doom metal band ABYSSAL. I really enjoyed inking this piece and had actually been wanting to draw something with a hairy angler so I was very pleasantly surprised when the band said that it was the only specification they had.
