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 .

(Just pretend there’s a photo of a fat, toupee-wearing, furniture-warehouse guy in a loud polyester suit here.)
Okay, all hyperbole aside, I’ve decided (after much deliberation) to drop the prices in my online art store. I’ve been reading a lot of spirited debate about how artists should never cut their prices or give discounts – lots of comparison to bargain basement stores, etc. But ultimately I think that’s an easy argument to make if you’re already an established, successful artist. Me, I’m really just starting out in my art career, such as it is. I need all the help I can get.
That being said, I’m not going to drop them permanently. That strikes me as a bad (self-defeating) career move. So just as an experiment, prices have been cut by 1/3 for the remainder of March. I’m curious to see what effect, if any, this will have on sales.
I’ve also added two recently-finished pieces to my Automotive gallery. You can see all of the work here .
You heard it here first, folks. The last picture in my book is officially underway:
Still have to ink the linework and tweak some details, but this one’s progressing pretty rapidly.
Hey, I think I’m starting to get the hang of this:
Well, the big day has finally arrived: I found a place online to sell prints of my art.
I’ve only got a few pieces up yet, but needless to say, there’ll soon be lots more. Check it out
, if you’re so inclined.
