"Little Hokum Rag" was recently written up by Johnny on Drawn! (thanks, Johnny) which reminded me that I have been meaning to add some more drawings to my website for a long time now. So, I just went and uploaded 10 more Little Pierrot Series Drawings in the drawing section. Have a look! These are newer, more complex ones. I will add more in the weeks to come, including my Monkey Love Series drawings. And, yes, I used a coffee can lid to draw those circles!

Later, B.L. Ochman gave both Art NYC and my painting a nice mention.
Marshall Sponder of ArtNYC has now written a great review of my "Banana Eater" painting in his July 15th, 2006 post.
I suppose he will have to continue to wonder about what the red pelican means in my painting (actually a scarlet ibis from South America) because I don't know myself! It's a design element - I needed it to balance my composition - but, it is also a potential "character" in the fantasy. I can tell him that my monkey is from South America and so is my girl and the tree has nuts, but they aren't coconuts, they are brazil nuts. The monkey is a squirrel monkey and the location is loosly based on Devil's Island, off of French Guiana.

It's almost time for the second Blab! Show to roll around. I have been working hard on paintings for the show to be held at the end of September, 2006 at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA.
Since the time is drawing near, here is a sneak peek of my spread in the upcoming issue of "Blab!" due out in September. It's called the "Banana Eater" (collection of Gary Baseman, this painting was shown in the very first Blab show Sept. 2005 at Track 16 Gallery).

My newest painting is called "The Creature". I was lucky enough to actually meet Mark Frauenfelder of boingboing.net last weekend in Santa Monica. He now owns my latest Monkey Love painting. See what he has to say about it on boingboing.
