Les Barany's Carnivora

I'm stoked to be part of Les Barany's ambitious Carnivora book and traveling art show-- The subject of this project is "the dark art of automobiles", and it's great to see an imaginative take on the tired car theme-- (All you clueless, tattooed hotrod posers take note!) The Carnivora book will be published by Scapegoat Publishing and the art show will debut January 12, 2007 during the International Auto Show at the ©Pop Gallery in Detroit-- The roster of 92 artists includes H.R. Giger, Anthony Ausgang, Robert Crumb, Frank Kozik, Coop, Glenn Barr, Mark Motherbaugh, Stanley Mouse, Zdzislaw Beksinski, and Trevor Brown-- I'll have 3 pieces in the book, and 2 pieces in the art show--

My Work Lair In Panoramic VR

Bradford Bohonus takes richly detailed panoramic photographs of all sorts of things, including Northwest artists in their studios-- The photos can be viewed with Quicktime or Flash on Bradford's website, and you can navigate around the the photo in any direction using your mouse and an on-screen cursor-- It's a total trip to play with and I must say a little terrifying to have such a precise 360 degree photo of my work space up on the web for all to see! Back off, man! This technology is very cool and so is Mr. Bohonus--

Trucker Fags Circus Punks?!?

Heat-damaged Floridian Marty Moore commissioned a custom "Circus Punk", and I took the opportunity to render Butch and Petey from the Trucker Fags In Denial comic book-- A queer marriage if ever there was one! Jim Goad has this photo as a "desktop" image on his Mac laptop---

Filthy Beasts Au Go Go

The "Filthy Beasts" show at the Fantagraphics Bookstore was a corker-- A packed house heard a rockin' set by The DT's and checked out the art, books, and records for sale-- A staggering-drunk indian named Chief Swimming Eagle bewildered everyone (see above photo)-- We got tons of press and hype for this show, thanks in large part to promo-wizard Larry Reid-- Here's a sample: First, Kelly-O's blog write-up for The Stranger-- Next is Kelly O's YouTube video interview-- After that, a photo set by Fantagraphics staffer Mike Baehr--
