UNBORED Games Available For Pre-Order!

The next book in the UNBORED series hits bookshelves October 14th, and is available for pre-order here. I did the cover illustrations and a ton of interior artwork for this new volume, written by Joshua Glenn and Elizabeth Foy Larsen, designed by Tony Leone, and co-illustrated by Heather Kasunick. More sneak-peeks at the book as the publication date gets closer.

Reebok & Monster Drawing

I was invited to give a presentation to the designers at Reebok about my illustration career on September 12th, and had a lot of fun meeting people. One thing that came up was Monster Drawing sessions at MassArt and how non-MassArt students can take part. I hope to get more videos shot this Fall, but here are some videos so you can draw from the comfort of your own crypt, mad scientist laboratory, or Paris Opera House: http://vimeo.com/user13853542

Evil Ugly Monster Group Show @ Ugly Gallery, New Bedford

Longtime buddy Matt C. Albanese invited me to be part of this group show, opening September 27th with an artist reception October 25th

Long Overdue Update

It was such a busy summer, I neglected to post new projects! Here's a lot of recent work:

"You yell 'Barracuda', everybody says, 'Huh? What?' You yell 'Creature From the Black Lagoon', we've got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July". This was a quick little one-hour painting homage to 2 of my favorite films in long-time buyer Mike Buote's sweet Mondo poster sketchbook

My uber-talented friends Meaghan & Harmony of Booze Epoque hired me to create a poster/ coaster/ t-shirt design for them.

"Booze Époque is Boston’s first licensed and insured craft cocktail catering service. BÉ creates whimsical and classic cocktails using fresh, local, organic, and seasonal ingredients for private parties and special events. BÉ also teaches a variety of cocktail classes ranging from Tequila & Mezcal to Cocktails & Literature."

Here's the approved digital sketch:

and the shirts are available here

sketches for Green Fur Kidz rescue group logo:

2 new posters for the Coolidge Corner Theatre's Halloween Horror Marathon:

They're both available as signed prints in my Etsy shop here.

I also spent weeks illustrating some really fun pages for the next book in the UNBORED series from Bloomsbury, and the team will be spending this Fall finishing up this Adventure-themed book. Meanwhile, the latest book, UNBORED Games: Serious Fun For Everyone is available for pre-order here.
