The movie will remain a secret, the art under wraps, but a ticket will gain you access to the film screening, a limited edition individually numbered movie poster of the “secret” film, access to the work of local artists, raffle giveaways, free food/drink, and local entertainment.

New Painting for Steel City Secret Cinema – ROBOCORPSE!!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Steel City Secret Cinema last night in Dormont. It was kinda like Alamo Drafthouse meets Gallery 1988. For those of you that couldn’t make it, here is the painting that I had showing. The theme for the show was any movie made in Pittsburgh. I couldn’t decide between Robocop and Day of the dead, and this is the result. It’s titled “RoboCorpse” or “When Murphy met Bub”. It hails as the grossest painting I’ve ever done. It just might be showing at House of The Dead in Lawrenceville so keep yer eyes peeled, son.

Lawrenceville Art All Night

I will be showing a piece tonite at Lawrenceville Art All Night. Bring some 3d glasses cus this shits gonna be for real.

Pet Sematary Movie Poster Design

So here’s the latest movie poster design. I said Day of the Dead would be next but I just had to do Pet Sematary. This movie has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.  I always liked Victor Pascow (the zombie/phantom dead guy). Most zombies or ghosts or whatever just want to eat your brains or to scare your pants off, but Victor just wants to give sound advice. Do not go to the place where the Dead Walk!

"Fjord of the Lies" Painting Step by Step

These progress shots are from a painting I did back in 2009, called Fjord of the Lies. I’ve been getting requests asking how I work and what my process is, so here’s an example. I wasn’t thinking of showing each step when taking these pics so there is a big jump in progress right at the end. I forgot about the camera at that point!

New Painting to be shown at Moxie Dada’s last show

Moxie Dada will be closing it’s doors this December. They are moving on from the four walls of the gallery to take an active part in the community. Here is a statement from their website:
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank our artists, the community and our neighbors at the firehouse studios for supporting our efforts during our stay in the Northside. It is with great enthusiasm and zest that we embark in our new direction, which includes: the development of commercial and residential art acquisition; and exploration of the virtual arena for art process, documentation, interviews and tours… Our long term goal is to provide\ global access to the Pittsburgh arts community following personal and regional developments. In short, providing a window to the world..
Coupling with the virtual development, moxie DaDA will continue to act as facilitators of public art projects. In our next phase, you can expect to see art that moves, engages and challenges.”

Their last show will be “Dia De Los Muertos Y La Resurreccion: the existencial crisis”

“This exhibition is going to explore death as a doorway to another life. It is going to represent the physical death of the gallery through a burial, and exhibition that reflects on these three questions: why do we exist; why are we here; and are we able to make a difference…?
