You have seen my 604 skull shirts. They started life as a tattoo design until my buddy Scott suggested putting the art on shirts. Since then quite a few Vancouverites have bought one of these:
Then my brother and I were chatting one night and he suggested doing shirts for people in the Maritimes (AKA, where I was born and raised). Here they are:
You can find ‘em here in my .
First off, thanks to everybody for their patience regarding the Ocean Rain show. We’ve tentatively settled on a date for the opening: Sunday, May 12, and we hope to make the official announcement any day now, once the last few details have been sorted.
And secondly, it’s Tuesday again, so it’s time for a new shirt:
For sale in my RedBubble store .
Another Tuesday, another t-shirt. The hardest thing about this week’s post is deciding which new shirt to release; I actually have a bit of a backlog at the moment.
This week’s apparel:
As always, this can be found in my RedBubble store .
And we’re back with another installment of T-Shirt Tuesday. This week’s featured shirt is another design from the upcoming Ocean Rain show, in this case, a new seahorse:
And you can buy it right here .
Hey there. As you may have noticed, weekly t-shirt releases were on hiatus for awhile as we prepped for (and recovered from) Hot Pink .
But now we’re rebooting the t-shirt release program, starting with this octopus from the upcoming Ocean Rain show (more on this at a later date):
You can buy this lovely cephalopod right here in my Redbubble store .
Continuing with last week’s pin-up girl theme:
This and the shirts from round 24, of course, tie in with my upcoming Hot Pink art show.
And you can find this one here in my RedBubble store .
Without giving any secrets away, I have a new art show happening very soon. And as a teaser, I’m releasing these t-shirts:
You can purchase them .
Yes, we took a week off from T-Shirt Thursday last week. We were in dire need of rest.
(Okay, we just forgot, actually. Also, we were drinking. Don’t judge us.)
Anyway, this week we’re back on track with a shirt for everybody who loves Twitter and Instagram hashtags:
And you can buy it right here, in our .
Also, we’ll be back with more next week, and we’ll stop referring to ourselves in the royal we.
Dedicated to the people who know exactly what I mean:

In keeping with the spirit of the season, here’s a new Santa shirt for you (or y’know, you could always give it to somebody else as a present, too):
And as always, it’s in my .
Been thinking about pin-up girls a lot lately, possibly because my next show will be focused on that very theme. Or possibly because I’m fortunate enough to know a lot of beautiful women. Who could say?
At any rate, all this thinking reminded me of my book, Hey Ladies . And I realized that a lot of the pieces in that book would make great t-shirts. Case in point:
This is, of course, for sale in my RedBubble store .
Ever since I did the metalflake seahorse painting for the Agent last winter, people have been expressing interest in the design. It occurred to me recently that the design would make a great t-shirt:
And as usual, you can find it right here in my RedBubble store .
This week’s t-shirt just had to be another dinosaur, with the show announcement a couple days ago.
You can buy it right here .
A brand new piece in the t-shirt store tonight. Special thanks to my agent Tess and my friend Lynn for their encouragement on this one. And to Cynthia for wanting to get together and draw last week.
Oh, and you can buy the shirt right here .
Hey, I just released a new Hot Rods calendar in my RedBubble store .
Get ‘em while they’re hot.
Just a quick report: the show with Mojave was a smashing success. Sold all but one of the pieces I had for sale, and sold them in the first half hour or so. Had a nice talk with the owner, and it looks like I’ll be putting more art up for display/sale there in the near future. And I still want to put on a full-fledged gallery-type show before the end of the summer, and it should be possible to book the room we used last weekend for that very purpose.
Based on the responses I’ve been getting to my art lately, I want to explore three very specific directions for my painting. To that end I started six new paintings today, though there’s not really anything to show at the moment.
I also ponied up the hundred bucks to buy a platinum membership at Imagekind. That gives me added galleries, a custom storefront (which I’m still tweaking), and most importantly a lot more info on sales – detailed figures, and info on where the buyers are and what they bought. Turns out I’ve made a pretty decent chunk of cash over the last year and a half with Imagekind.
I’m pretty pleased with Redbubble, too. I’ve recently added t-shirts to my online merchandise, and those are slowly starting to move. Thinking about postcards next.
There’s probably more stuff I’m forgetting, but it’s late. So I’ll just leave you with this recently-completed commission:
P.S. Special thanks to Lisa & Paul, Dan Udey, Susan Burzynski and Mario Loubert.
Hey. For those kindhearted souls still frequenting this blog, I’ve got something on my mind. I mentioned recently that half of the hot rod book is done, but at the rate I’m going, I’m probably a good 8 months away from the big finish. And people have indicated they’re interesting in buying some of the new art now.
The other day it occurred to me that a hot rod calendar might well be the answer. Poked around the internet today to look at my options, and I’ve settled on RedBubble. Which leaves me in a bit of a quandary – should the calendar be a standalone piece, or could it overlap some with the book, in terms of content? I certainly don’t wanna stop doing the automotive art anytime soon, but at the same time, if I have to do 12 more cars on top of the 50 in the book, then the book release will be that much farther away.
I’m also looking into magazine options from Magcloud. Maybe take the same cars that are in the calendar/book and show a bit more of the creative process – initial sketches, maybe some discussion of the different directions a piece might’ve gone in.
I dunno, a lot to think about here. I’ll have to make a decision fairly soon to cash in on the Christmas market, but some feedback would come in handy at this juncture. While you’re thinking about it, feast your eyes on some eye candy:
What say you?
