Where the wild things were

Happy to announce our new neighbors Illiterate Magazine have settled in real real nice over the last few weeks and had an...OK at best turn out for their inaugural show "Where the Wild Things Art" curated by the late Max "keep'em separated" Kaufman. Here is a little one-two punch I did for the show that runs until December so if you are near the S. Broadway area swing by and say "why do these paintings cost so much!!?"Lets make'm feel right at home.

The Anointing -13X15-Acrylic on wood-$225

Detail- A twist on the original now playing up a more mixed religion idea as the retina free wild things appearing more as they would from an esoteric pagan stance hoist the newly appointed king in to his rightfully hierarchy upon the backs of the masses. Topped off with the traditional white smoke and ballot burring we have all come to know and love from the Catholic's Papal inauguration. Sure to be a comfort in your home that is cherished for generations.

Contact illiterate for purchase inquiries.

So Low show

Recently showed my first solo collection of works in over 4 YEARS! It took a few months to get everything to a polished presentable state. During that time I slept in a lawn chair in my studio, in the basement of INDYINK. It was a huge task but I think it came out quite well. This was the first time I have ever been able to show illustration works as finished art pieces. It was definitely nice to get 2 uses out of the same image and open it up to a broader audience.

Here is the show in its entirety as well as in the order that it appears on the wall...bonus. If you happen to be in Denver over the next few weeks you should come by INDYINK and see it in person its really not so bad.

I am laughing all the way to bank. $12 and its yours only 6 in the world available at INDYINK

I'm not asking you, I am telling you

Get outside and enjoy your days before they are over.

Wash park seasonal flower garden. I am not a botanist so I don't know what kind of flower it is but its nice and you like it.

Fuck You! Car

I am an avid anti-automotive enthusiast. So in loving memory of selfish transit and the oil industry here is a little design I put together.

Give the automotive manufactures the finger , and most other people are kind of offended by the F-word as well, BONUS!

3 color CMY process print (super duper soft) on white shirt with a cyan logo placement on the back, you don't need to see that, its a surprise.

These of course will be available at the world renowned one and only in store location of INDYINK but presale will also be available at FM magazine's Skate/bike 2 on September 5th.

I stole that model from the Internet and I am not afraid to say it. I was trying to find a girl model to use but inevitably I just ended up looking at porn. We are also working on a black shirt color way so hold your horses.

F-you all

Hard cover no Jacket

Hopefully these little guys make down to Australia by Thursday for the opening of "Hard Cover No Jacket" the one year anniversary show for oh really gallery and magazine in Sydney, Australia. But the USPS didn't seem to confident in that itinerary. If not they will get there when they get there and if you can't live without them then contact the gallery from the link I just posted...idiot.

the theme of the show is hard bound book covers so that's what that's all about.

"The Great Mouthpiece" 5.5"X7.5" $80+ shipping and handling

"The Last Book of Horses" 7"X8.5" $65+ shipping and handling

these were fun look for more of this nature at my solo show in October at INDYINK.

ABQ with Adai

This trip I just took to Albuquerque was an addition to my already 18+ day long vacation. 7am-10am the next, day straight from the airport to the tour van no sleep, lots of METAL, sand, van time, coffee and beef jerky.

ADAI music video shoot at the old state prison in Santa Fe.

I was stoked to see Adai play at the launch pad a venue that I grew up in and saw so many great shows as a kid in Albuquerque. If you aren't familiar with Adai check them out also check out the band they were on tour with North and the band that was supposed to play but their keyboardist got caught trying to get into the venue with a fake ID a ABQ locally favorite Coma Recovery.

before I left for vacation we hosted the DPUMS again...as always. Here is a photo of the ugliest side of the prettiest band in town, no body draws a crowd like The Legendary River Drifters.

So packed I had to stay in back.

the stars at night are big and bright

So I was deep in the heart of Texas. For some reason a lot of people have a lot of problems with a lot of what Texas has going on. But I think its a pretty happening spot. Lots of stuff to do, nice down home type folks, and a lot of geographic and social diversity, and a shit load of swimming holes. Its really not that bad, its actually not bad at all.

Got to hang out with my boy Buffalo for a few days in Houston. Its kind of a huge sewer of a city. Hot and sprawling and with no rain for over 30 days there wasn't much water to be had in the bayou city. We went to the Rice University Installation Gallery to see this crazy found wood chrysalis installation by Henrique Oliveria .

We also went to Austin on a Tuesday...and it was dead. No shows, no OK mountain, no youth culture to be seen. Thanks to the nice folks at Decoder Ring, the peter pan pitch and putt, Barton springs, and a shit load of Loan Star beer it all worked out for the best.

Thanks to Sake Bellinis I got into several drunken conversations with Buffalo's Friends who are all artist types, designers, or gallery curators. One was about the relevant necessity of Graffiti to Gallery cross overs that have been happening a lot lately. Mostly the discussion was about Shepard Fairy and the then new Banksy show at the Bristol Museum. My argument was that nothing purchased at a museum that is made by a graffiti artist will ever be as relevant and therefor less valuable as a piece in or taken from the street. When we got back to the house that Buffalo was house sitting at I found this on the wall in the guest house, over a crap T.V. where most people would never even notice it which really just drives my point home.

apparently its legit. An original Keith Haring wheat paste removed from an NYC subway terminal. I really wouldn't shut up after I saw this literally 10 minutes after we had that discussion how fucking topical can you get.

After that I went to Port Aransas and hung out with my extended family. Nothing like 6 days in a remote hotel room with 19 of my closest kin to make me realize there is good reason we only have reunions once a year.

KGNU team up


super hero rough

This Friday, May 1st, will be the maiden voyage of the live broadcasts of KGNU 88.5 fm or 1390 am from the illustrious fresh Friday gallery openings at the world famous INDYINK. This event will also coincide with the release of the new and improved KGNU program guide which to my understanding has received quite a face lift thanks to contributions from some of Denver/Boulders most prominent art and music honchos. Of course they asked me to take part and I gladly contributed the piece shown here. Hopefully this is the begging of a long and proposes friendship for all involved parties. So come on down, ride your bike with loops, check out some art and drink some $2 tall boys with us afterwards at beta. This is where all your friends will be so honestly what else are you going to do?

probably nothing

The 23rd hour

Last minute I knocked out some of these as my contribution to the art crank show. I used all of my test prints so if you drop the $20 on one of my shinning beauties you are actually getting a little bit of 20 other people's posters as well. I say its well worth it, and trust me I know. The show runs through the Second week in May up on the super block but I think all sales are still through
the fabric lab. so go git some FOOL!


I ended up printing 21 out of around 54 posters for Art Crank 2009. It was something like 52 different screen colors, 20+ hour days for the better part of 2 weeks. Denver was the second city to get in on this project. This was our first year participating and the 4th year of the show in its home town of Minneapolis. I think we did pretty well for our first year and we definitely set the stage for this to turn into a huge event every year. I say next year we take our mile high endurance and go crash their party and show'em that bikes, art, and partying is really all about.

I'm pretty sure I've partied before.


I've been doing a lot of this lately

4th Annual NPRrrrr party


bring your wooden lasers
your round house hard drives
your beard candles
your platinum leg
and your boogaloo shoes

You wont see me cause I'll be up in the VIP with Johnny 5, Steven Seagal, the Gorton's fisherman and a lot of peoples' girlfriends.

Some good looking red heads will be there, you had better believe it.

Lost Wayguts, NV

The front end team from INDYINK took a field trip to MAGIC in Vegas. Magic is a mega-cujunga fashion trade show that dreams are made of, its not the card game, or card tricks. We managed to pick up a few stragglers along the way who slept more, ate more, complained more, and socialized more than anyone...ever. We drank some fish bowls at the adidas party, played some skeeball, wished to be BIG, drank some tall boys in koozies on the strip, road some bikes, walked farther than you, and looked at a lot of fashion. It was neat.

all in all...its a horrible place.
