War Worms - New Shirt!

Another, in the great worm series! This drawing has been in my head for some time now. I drew it about a month ago, and then did my magic to it. It's now a fine illustrated print on a sweet lemon color shirt. I'm a huge fan of the orange and yellow contrast. The illustration is pretty awesome as well. It’s a robot from a great angle blasting worms. It is a lot like that game “whack-a-mole” but with laser beams and huge worm monsters. VIVA EL BLASTO!

I'm really happy with this new design. I made 80 posters with the same print that are limited edition. I will be giving them away FREE at IHR this weekend. Hope you enjoy!

Monday, February 19, 2007 - Tom Green

Ok, so I thought I would write about something a little bit different this morning. Tom Green has been a rad hero of mine for sometime now. For awhile I thought he was just out there doing something but not doing anything anymore. Well, I was wrong. Tom has started this amazing new thing called "webovision." He does a talk show from his living room almost everynight except for the weekends. Here is the best part, it streams live to his website. So you can watch it on your computer by going to his website.

This is AMAZING! He does not have to worry about the FCC, Producers, etc... He can do whatever he wants, when he wants. The guest on the show have been great as well. Folks like Neil Hamburger, Bob Sagat, Andrew Dice Clay, Dr. Franklin Ruehl, Tim and Eric, Scott Thompson and many more!

Well, if you have some time check it out. It's pretty great.

Here they are: Worm Monster Paintings

This is two of the total ten I did in the series. I'm going to post them a little slowly so I can think of crazy stories to write with them. It is totally awesome and fun. I love the color contrast used for all 10 of these smaller paintings. And yes, the worm monsters are hand illustrated. Ok, so here are their BIOs:

Worm Monster: Zori
Media: Acrylic & Marker - H 5inches by W 5inches The worm invasion has started. This worm’s name is “Zori.” He is a leader in explosive technology that can cripple a planet’s defenses. His favorite colors are red and brown. In this painting he is hand painted and hand illustrated. Can you feel his power? Take your eye off him for two seconds and he will snap your head off with a single bite. Don’t miss-judge Zori’s one eye. The only thing that can stop these worm monsters are laser beams from a robot. Artwork by Karl Addison

Worm Monster: Ornic
Media: Acrylic & Marker - H 5inches by W 5inches The worm invasion has started. This worm’s name is “Ornic.” She can dupe you to believing she is the most beautiful women on all of planet earth. Her favorite colors are silver and green. In this painting she is hand painted and hand illustrated. There was once a story about how she took out an entire galaxy by tricking lonely men-type creatures in to marriage. Then she would eat them and bore her children to devour the rest of their worlds. True story! The only thing that can stop these worm monsters are laser beams from a robot. Artwork by Karl Addison

New Paintings

Oh man, so about a month ago I started to draw these rad worm monsters. They have one giant eye and razor sharp teeth able to tear it's prey in half. They are vicious! I was so stoked on them but had no idea what to do with them. I drew a ton of them... so there is this intense worm monster army now. After that I sadly forgot about my worm friends... But then I took the illustrations and put them on my new sweet business cards for my artwork! And then... I started a few smaller sized but totally amazing paintings last night with them on it. So, once I get the series done I will post these amazing worm monster paintings on my site and other various places. Get ready for WORM MONSTER ACTION!

stay tune!

I Heart Rummage - It was awesome

Even with the Superbowl going on with a big old football game IHR was pretty rad. Lots of nice folks came out and checked out what everyone had. I made some new friends with the other crafty peeps. Good times for sure. You can count on me coming back for March and so on. I hope to see you there again!

Moving... Almost over

So for the last few weeks I have been moving. I'm proud to say I'm all moved in to my new house in West Seattle. The next trick is to unpack everything and locate the things I need. I now have to use Comcast for my internet service. So far I'm not impressed by them at all. They sent out a tech to install my internet which. He messed up my router and all my cabling by disconnecting everything. He was in such a rush to leave he did not check to see if my internet was even working. Of course it was not, so I spent the next hour on the phone with a tech support. The best part is when they have you reboot everything after you have done it four times before calling. They sent the tech back out, he messed with some more wires and got my modem to get a signal. Then left again, of course my internet cut out the second he did. After about five hours of this I got my internet working as long as I do not move my bogus modem. For $60 bucks a month its robbery. A big "fuck you Comcast!"

Other then that things are great. I love my new place. I love my new art studio when i get it all setup. I have this great idea in my head for my next series I will start working on. It's going to be flipping awesome so stay tune!

much love,
