Being King for a Day in L.A.

Posted by – April 1, 2014

Whoa. Thanks for your patience as I’m a bit out of touch with my Blog!

Celebrating the works of Stephen King, I participated in a group show titled “King for a Day” March 21st, 2014 at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. The work that came out of the written words and filmed imagery were phenomenal. A lot of it was based on storied that had made it to the screen. Some were sprinkled in as hidden little gems, nuggets for King nerds.

While what I illustrated was turned into a movie, my illustration was more based on the feelings captured in the novella. Inspired by Stephen King’s “The Mist” from the book Skeleton Crew, the aim was to package up and deliver the tone of the otherworldly terror that lurked over the supermarket holdup in Maine following the speculated misdealings of the Arrowhead project up around the bend led by the military. Lets let the work present itself and tell the story that I fell in love with. The show runs through April 5th, 2014.

Good day, Y’all!

So this holiday season is at a close! And a good one at that. After a little hiatus, i’m back in the social updating frenzy both prompted by shaking off the new year sloth and the interest in reconnecting with my followers out there in internetland.

Paroxysm :: Processes Per Paintings

Posted by – November 11, 2013

Recently I’ve contributed to Hero Complex Gallery and PangeaSeed’s “Smile, You Son of a Bitch!” charity art show in Los Angeles. The piece I contributed marks the second (third I suppose) Gouache painting I’ve done since college. Neat. Here’s an insight into the process of that work:IMG_1015 IMG_1016 IMG_0643 IMG_0648 IMG_0849 hancock_paroxysm
