Seduction of the Idiots Art Show : OTTAWA

I was asked by the über talented Bob Flynn And David DeGrand to participate in their “Seduction of the Idiots” show, taking place in Ottawa, Ontario!

I painted a 4 peice collection called “The Bloodies”, including “Mashy” the Mallet, “Jabby” the Bottle, “Choppy” the Cleaver, and “Poppy” the Gun.  Each painting is 6×6 inches, painted with acrylic inks on pine panels!

Here’s a write-up about the show!

Opening Party: Friday, August 27th
7pm to 10pm

Comics have long been accused of transforming young, impressionable children into savage maniacs incapable of existing as productive members of society. This is of course, completely ridiculous. At worst, comics warp fragile minds into wanting to become cartoonists themselves, which is arguably slightly better than the juvenile delinquent scenario. In any case, comics are here to stay, whether uptight citizens like it or not. The artists on display in “Seduction of the Idiots” are all examples of what can happen when comic and cartoon addiction is not dealt with early enough. Let this art show serve as a warning to parents everywhere; know what your child is watching and reading every second of their lives. The last thing you want is to be the parent of an idiot.

A Pile of Clones.

My hand-painted (all in acrylic inks), super fancy skate deck is complete!  It was truly a labor of love.  Jhonen Vee assisted me in naming it, “The Path to Individuality is a Pile of Dead Clones”.  If you are in the LA area and have some time to kill, you should poop on by to the show!  There’s a good chance I’ll be there, standing around n’ shit…
