So it’s midsummer already. No idea where that year went; between work and shenanigans, I’ve been busy as hell, though.
I’m also, once again, up to my ass in paintings. My studio walls are covered, my couch is buried in them, every spare bit of space in my bedroom (which isn’t necessarily a lot) is crammed. This, obviously, will not do.
So hey. You wanna buy a painting at a bargain price and give me a little more space to paint more stuff?
Sure you do.
Here’s what’s up for grabs this year:
If you have your eye on a piece, drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) and refer to the sale in the email title.
Prices are in effect till Friday, July 17, 2015. Prices do not include shipping.
Well, hey. I guess this is the first big art news of the new year. As you may have noticed, I released a motorcycle calendar in the fall. And it seemed like a natural outgrowth of that to put out a line of bike shirts, too. Here’s a preview of the nine different designs:
As usual, you can find ’em here, in my Redbubble store.
If you know me, you know I’m a pretty big fan of tradition. Last year, as a way to clear out old stock and to say thanks for supporting my art career, I decided to have a Boxing Week sale.
There are paintings from Hot Pink, Ka-Pow!, Bugs, The Koi Show, Cocktails, Dark Valentine, plus a couple random pieces that weren’t featured in any specific exhibition.
Here’s what available. As you can see, pricing is not what you’d call consistent. Instead it’s based on a complex algorithm that takes into consideration the age of a piece, the size, the process, and whether or not I still want it in my life.
These prices are in effect from Friday, December 26th to Thursday, January 1st. After that, the paintings revert to their usual pricing. Also, prices do not include any shipping costs.
Okay, I’m gonna make a bold statement here. I like drawing motorcycles more than I like drawing women, cars, or guitars.
There, I said it.
I can’t even put my finger on the reason why; I just know it’s really fucking fun. Partly because motorcycles are just inherently badass, but there’s something else there, too. I’ve always liked perspective drawing, so that’s part of it. And figuring out how the parts work, doing the research… that’s pretty huge, too.
I decided back in January that this year’s calendar theme would be motorcycles, and I’ve spent almost the entire year doing research about cafe racers, trackers, scramblers, bobbers, choppers, street fighters…
Once it came time to start the actual work, I learned about sidecars, perimeter brakes, superchargers, even bikes I’d never heard of before. Crockers, for instance.
As I write this I’m on the penultimate bike, a Kawasaki KZ900. Once that’s done, I have to do an Indian – most likely a board tracker.
And then the calendar will be ready for release, and all will be right in the world.
Wanna see some in-progress stuff? If you follow me on social media, you may have seen some of these already. Not all of them, though:
So Bugs was another fun show – a bit more intimate than the last few shows, but we definitely had fun. Full report to come, but in the meantime, people have been asking which pieces are still available, so here they are.
Each piece is 8×10 inches, and $70 unframed. Price doesn’t include shipping charges. So if you’ve got your eye on one, drop me a line: email@example.com
Also, if there’s something you don’t see here, let me know anyway. I’m open to doing custom pieces for people if they’re so inclined.
