Men Eating Fruit

I recently just self-published a book I wrote and illustrated, "Men Eating Fruit." It is a collection of small goache portraits of nude men eating their favorite fruits (as stated in the title). With each portrait is a short little humorous description of them and their lives.

The whole thing is playful (and a little racy) and done as my first experiment in online publishing. I ordered myself a copy and am pretty satisfied with the quality of the printing and binding! I would definitely recommend Blurb for anyone else interested.

A preview is below and the book can be purchased HERE.

A new painting I just completed. I've been experimenting with goache recently and slowly liking it more and getting used to it.
I watched a bit of soccer this weekend while eating breakfast and was inspired to create this piece. I think I will draw more soccer players in the future.

If you are interested, this painting is up for sale at my here.

El Fanzine

This is part of a page layout I designed for El Fanzine, a Mexican publication. The article was entirely in Spanish and all I was told that it was about the street artist Space Invader. For those of you who live in NYC, you probably have noticed some of his pixelated tile-graffiti around the city...I know I have. Sooo...I felt a bit strange about making an illustration based on another artist's work. I wanted to do him justice without having my style be too prominent.

I came up with the idea of doing something abstract, brightly colored, and based on the idea of pixelation and the original game, Space Invaders. Believe it or not this is CMYK so it will print these colors!

This job was a nice break from what I usually do...I love getting to experiment in ways I normally wouldn't. It ends up informing my work and squeezing its way into my everyday vocabulary.

Love Letters

Dear Reader,

These little spot illustrations are for an upcoming issue of Cicada. I was given pretty much complete creative freedom and decided to do a series of childish love letters. I had fun writing real tiny inside my miniature love letters.

Nonsek Remix Tees!

Here is a project I'm very excited to share...I've been working with Nonsek to create a remixable/customizable set of t-shirts available for purchase. The basic gist is - I created a set of 19 words that are randomly paired up to create funny phrases (below some examples). You can pick exactly what you want or allow the wheel of chance to randomly pick something for you.
The shirts are super affordable and you're getting a personalized shirt! If you're interested, check it out here!
