Bad Dads VI

Man, I love Wes Anderson.

And for the sixth straight year, Spoke Art is presenting their Bad Dads show and I'm thrilled to be taking part in it for the fourth straight year! They are doing a NYC pop-up event at Joseph Gross Gallery Aug 7-9 and tickets are competely sold out. Just check out the Facebook events page to see just how many people rsvp'd for this one.

I decided to go back to one of my favorite films, The Royal Tenenbaums, and pay tribute to the iconic dalmation mice and their creator. I present, "Fire Drill" and he measures 6" x 8" and is acrylic on maple. For purchase inquiries, please contact There will also be 30 limited edition prints available from the gallery.

Bad Dads V at Spoke Art

I am so happy to once again be participating in Spoke Art's latest Wes Anderson inspired show, Bad Dads V. This year, like many others, I'm sure, I was thoroughly inspired by his latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. More specifically, that lovely Courtesan au Chocolat. I present, "Serve Fresh."

She is acrylic on maple and measures 9.75" x 9.75". For purchase inquiries, please contact There will also be 30 limited edition prints available from the gallery.

The show has a two day opening with a costume party on Friday, October 31st and then continuing again on Saturday, November 1st. To find out more you can visit their event page on facebook here.

Three Shows = New Originals

First up, is the long awaited Joss Whedon x Gallery 1988 show which opens next Friday at their West location. They're really keeping the lid on everyone's pieces but if you look closely you might see a bit of my piece below. Since I'll be in town for my solo, I'll get to attend this show as well! Be sure to say hi :)

Opening the next night in San Francisco is Spoke Art's KUBRICK: an art show tribute. I just love "The Shining" (sorry Mr. King) and came up with "I'm Not Gonna Hurt Ya" acrylic on maple, 11" x 11" x .75".

Also opening Saturday, September 6th at 7pm is Happy As Kings, my solo exhibition at Gallery Nucleus. Scott C is showing the work from his latest children's book Hug Machine in the main gallery and there will be lots of fun things to do, including giveaways throughout the night. And pizza! And ice cream! So bring the little ones and spend the evening looking at art that makes you smile.

The Dude Abides

Hi everyone!
Opening in one week on Saturday, July 5th is the Quentin vs. Coen show at Spoke Art in San Francisco.
I'm a fan of all their films and had a difficult time choosing which to take my inspiration from. But after watching The Big Lebowski again, everything just fell into place.
I hope you enjoy my piece entitled, "Shut Up Donny" which measures 12.5" x 6.5" x .75" and is acrylic on maple (there will also be a limited edition run of prints). If you are interested in this piece or to request an advance collectors preview of the show, simply email

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
Thanks for looking,

This piece measures 8.5" x 12" and is also acrylic on maple. I had a blast once again painting a frame (it's a lovely gold) and this time incorporating some fun details from the movie, "Fantastic Mr. Fox".

Thanks again for reading and for the support! I wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for all the wonderful people surrounding me :D
