Unpleasant Twisted Cynic's-ville


Flyer it up!

Here’s a recent flyer series I did for Factor VIII; look closely and you might see Dee Dee Ramone somewhere.
I think I may be silk screening these at some point, I just gotta find the time to do it in. Free time has been somewhat of a rare luxury as of late, aw crud! Funny how this can really crap on your personal life… but that’s a whole other blog entry I most likely won’t get around to writing.

“Grim Reaper’s Day Off”

As of late I’ve been completely consumed and highly inspired by “Kustom Kulture” and early 40’s illustrations. A sideline fan, well more like a cheerleader of/for Hot Rod culture, a lot of my drawings have always been influenced by the aesthetics pertaining to said movement. Try as I may, I can’t really put my finger on it but it definitely has a certain alluring subversiveness to it.

I’ve always looked to guys like Ed Roth (The Master), Tex Avery (The Ultimate Creator), John K., John Holmstrom, and of course Coop for inspiration and mainly guidelines. Humbling as it may be, no matter how many times I drool over Rat Fink and/or split my sides laughing while watching “Deputy Droopy“, one thing is for sure, I can always take something from what they’ve done.

I’d say that this new piece was done in the spirit of rendering tribute to these fine folks. All incredibly subversive and maniacally poignant in the delivery of their artwork.

With that said I leave you with, “Grim Reaper’s Day Off.”

Zombies, brain eating, and some rock and/or roll.

In hopes of thwarting any negative commentary that may be headed my way due to my inability to update this here blog, I shall post a new piece. Its a concert poster I did for Factor VIII, a band in which I hold the position of drummer.

Illustration: Hobo-bot and Greasegoat

These two pieces were done at a different time, but I’ll post ’em here side by side. I’ve got tons of old work that could use some posting!
This first one (below) is my depiction of what I imagine would be a Robot’s reaction when faced with some form of heartbreak. Circuits shorting out, blown fuses, lots of “Premium Oil” (as shown on the can he appears to be drinking out of) consumption, pretty heavy stuff. Judging from the somewhat cold expression on his (assuming that its a male robot) face he’s pretty broke too. Meet Hobo-bot, vagrant automaton extraordinaire, heart broken wonderer of all places unholy and misserable. No satchel carrying and/or hitching of rides for this guy; robots usually have some kind of transportational(sic) ability that facilitates the transporting of self with some degree of ease, this also includes whatever items the robot in question may have at the time of transport.
Lovesick Automaton

This one here (below) was a T-Shirt design I put together for a punk rock band from the Republic of Panama. Its a smokin’-greaser goat. I think I may have broken new ground here, why with the pairing of a goat and greaser aesthetics… or maybe not.

The Other Side of Leatherface

Here’s another horror themed illustration, this one was conjured after a viewing of one of my favorite films… you guessed it, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” I can’t get over how gracefully said film has aged over the years. (Click on the image for larger size)

Illustration: Chopped Karloff

Here’s a recent illustration I made of the grand-papes of all Movie Monsters, Frankenstein. This piece was influenced by Boris Karloff’s portrayal of said ghoul. (Click on the image for lager size).
