a dark denizen...

"Hornhelm Endbringer"

Working on this painting made me want to play Magic: the Gathering again. Ah, nerdstalgia.

Hornhelm here is my entry into The Hive's "New Avatars of Hiveland" group show opening this Saturday. This show is part of their sixth anniversary celebration which will also include a "Best of the Best" curated group show.

He's also my entry in a small side bet with The Prince of Cake. The bet is fairly simple, we're both submitting a piece to the show, so best piece wins. What will we win, and how will a winner be decided? Excellent questions for which I have no answers. But what I can tell you is this: both of us have agreed that if our painting sells we'll be donating our profits from the sale to benefit relief efforts in Japan.

So if you are going to be in the Los Angeles area this Saturday night swing by The Hive and check out their Sixth Anniversary Extravaganza, it should be pretty epic.

"Cthulhu Fhtagn"

What can I say, I'm a sucker for Lovecraft.

These little beauties are my submission to next month's "Doll Haus" nesting dolls group show at Rothick Art Haus. From largest to smallest we've got an Idol to the dread Cthulhu himself, a Shogoth, and a cultist (still clutching his Necronomicon).

I strongly urge anyone in the LA / Anahiem area to come check out the show April 9th. The work I've seen so far has been excellent, and Rothick always puts on an amazing show.

another trip down the rabbit hole ...

"Time For Tea"

This Saturday, by which I mean tomorrow, is the Hive's annual "Alice in Wonderland" group show. I made the clock above for this year's show, and I think it came out pretty good. I'm trying to get more into background and environment, since some of my recent work has been a little devoid of setting.

The Hive's Tarot deck will also be available at the show for $15. You can even get your fortune read using the deck, which I always thought was pretty awesome. Check out my card "The Chariot" in its awesome new digs:
So if your in the LA area this weekend, swing by the Hive and check out all the awesome Wonderlandia on display. It should be a blast.
