Happy Halloween!


A friend sent me this photo where I look stupid or stoned at last week's Friends of the Nib Halloween show opening.

Cat's Out of the Bag



I just got back from a trip to Vegas to visit my brother, and when I unpacked my bag today, I found a surprise.

First ever "Life in Hell" comic strip


Here's my contribution to the Monocle volume 2, a Halloween themed promotional newspaper for the Friends of the Nib Halloween art show. It will be at the infamous Cafe Racer, which is getting a great makeover and expansion and should be unveiled in time for the show. Details to follow on the date of the show.

Look for the Monocle no. 2 coming to a local business near you, packed with monsters, games, comics and more.

Let's Dance


Here's a work in progress for a gift certificate design I'm working on for Ballard's very own Bop Street Records. There's great free music there on Fridays and Saturdays.

Jose and Braque hate fleas, and so do I


I just had to give my kitties baths to get fleas off them-the topical squeeze on crap seems to be taking forever. They are now wet, cold, and confused. Not a good start to Labor Day. Later, I'll be working, go figure.

I love crayons

September band lineup at Bop Street Records Ballard




This is a poster I created and will hopefully soon be plastered all over the city of Seattle.

Yosemite Sunset


I recently got back from Yosemite National Park. Here's a view of the sunset on the first night out during my backwoods camping trip.

Album cover art found at Bop Street Records



Credit is due to Tom Dougherty, who pulled out this album cover from the Bop Street children's section. I found no record inside, so I was given the beautiful cover for free. The album is entitled A Child's Introduction to Jazz featuring Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo) and the Honeydreamers. I cannot find an artist credit on the cover. Any ideas?

My show at the Chai House is up


The opening will be part of Ballard's second Saturday artwalk. Please come. This is one of the only places that will have booze as wine has been banned from the regular artwalk rotation unless it is held at a bar/restaurant.

Here is a sketch of my friend Richard Penner that I was coloring and forgot about for a while. Enjoy its unfinishedness, and I hope to see you at Mr. Spot's Chai House for Ballard artwalk next Saturday.

In mural news: Almost every panel has been stolen, and KOMO 4 covered it on the evening news



See the news clip here: http://www.komonews.com/news/23965359.html

Good work teaming up with the Problem Solvers, Bob.

Get Back Cretins


Jim Woodring has spoken with the city and they will now post these signs that he made around the mural. I guess they will also replace Bob Rini's panel, shown below.

This just in! The notice couldn't go up fast enough. Jim has just received this message from Barbara Luecke at Sound Transit:
"I just received a call from a young reporter from the Capitol Hill Times who would like to do a story about the artist working on Broadway. You previously said you would prefer to be the artists of mystery. Do you still feel that way?
We learned this morning that parts of two more murals were taken early afternoon yesterday. Howdy Doody and seated animals."

They were taken midday? Surely someone out there is a witness.

Bob Rini's stolen panel

A peek of Mt. Rainier from Cal Anderson park


Seattle weather has finally turned sunny and HOT. I took this photo while I was visiting the mural this weekend, which is a block from Cal Anderson park.

This Nib-nailed hand will get you for stealing


Well, the entire mural was up. And then a panel created by Bob Rini was stolen sometime shortly after. Read this: http://slog.thestranger.com/2008/06/calling_all_snitches
-It's a link to the Stranger's blog discussing the catastrophe.
Some of the photos below are some close ups of the mural.

This close up of the Broadway/Denny mural includes my work. They are the portraits of ladies with wine glasses.

Parts of FOTN mural finally up!


This is a side of the former Jack-in-the-Box at Broadway and Denny, where my Friends of the Nib-sters have a patched together mural on vinyl panels. I don't think all panels are in place yet, but I've heard that the ones present may be tempting some punks into larceny. Not cool.

This is a photo taken by Ellen Forney's camera phone. I'll post some close ups as soon as I can get onto the Hill to see it myself.

Laura and the Leopard


This is the finished version of the drawing below. This was inked and painted with watercolor and gouache. Laura told me after seeing this finished that she had a run-in with a cougar in Bellingham, WA, a year or two ago while hiking. She shooed it away by saying, "No, Bad Kitty!"
So be careful hikers, maybe bring a guitar with you and serenade the beasts.

Musical experiment


This is my friend Laura. I colored and tweaked this in Photoshop...the original sketch is up on my website. I'm working on a redo of her with watercolor and gouache and a leopard in the scene.

Cat Scratch Fever


This is a piece that will be in the Animal Talk benefit show this Friday. Please come and buy animal art! All proceeds go towards this caring shelter. See the official show poster a few postings back.

AWW


I found my kitties like this the other night. It's like they posed.
