Crate Digger The Lost Art Of The Album Cover, 85 Artists imagine covers for real and fictional albums! August 20th through Sept 10th
I made this piece “Dead Monkey” (The Album) from a logo I was working on that never came to be. But I really thought it was a compelling image, and ever since I went to Africa I really think Vervet monkeys are JERKS! They are mean, they gang up on you, steal your stuff. When I was walking at a resort alone on a jungle path I was confronted buy one of these Monkeys and some of his asshole friends. Hissing showing their teeth, I was scared and completely with out a stick or a rock. So I made my self really big and yelled at them, at first they didn’t back down and I remember the travel doctor from the states telling me “Don’t mess with monkeys, one bite or scratch is a trip ender, you will have to go to the nearest big city hospital for treatment.” So I kept walking towards the group and being loud, finally they dispersed. As far as I’m concerned the best monkey is dead one. Check it out available at Gabba Gallery!

A tribute to the movies we love from 20 years ago. So many great movies, that said I am a fanatic for anything from Mars Attacks! The design, the card series from the 60's the Kitsch of the Tim Burton movie. Also I have always been a fan of the art of Norman Saunders who illustrated many of the early cards.
The piece I created for the Gallery 1988 show is titled: "Those Were The Days" the idea that if the Martians had won they would have succumbed to Western comforts and excess. Graphite and ink 9X12 on Bristol board. Check out all the amazing art for the show at Gallery 1988.
