Totally awesome, totally Partybot News!

Hello everyone!

There is a lot going on right now. Well, three or four sort of big things that I'm totally stoked on and wanted to share with all of you about.

New Work: I started working on a new set of illustrations that are going to become fine art pieces. One the series is done I will choose a few to print on to shirts and other various items that I love. I have been putting a lot of love in to this new project and the new illustrations, they are a little bit different then a lot of my other work so it will be rad to see how it turns out. Here is a small clip from one of the Illustrations that I'm working on.

Events: I have two rad events going on in the Seattle, Washington area. The first one is I Heart Rummage. If you don't know about this or have not been to it I would HIGHLY suggest you go next sunday on April 1st. There are a ton of really awesome crafty folks and it is free. A great way to spend a sunday afternoon. The website is: It is at the Crocodile Cafe - 2200 22nd Ave, Seattle WA from 12 noon to 4pm. Support your local artist and crafters!

The second show that I'm going to be doing is Thread Seattle. Thread is April 22nd, at the Fremont Studios, 155 North 35th st, Seattle WA - 11am - 6pm.

Retailers: If you live in the Seattle area there are three TOTALLY rad shops you should check out. The first is 20 twenty in Ballard, the second is Blue Bottle in Capitol Hill and the third is Twilight Art in Pikes Place Market. All three of these places are small and ran by super awesome folks who support local artist! If you live in Virginia you can check out None Such. All four of these places carry my artwork. Here is a list of their websites:

Contest Winner: I sent out the email this morning to my winner for March 07, email me back so I can honor your name on the site. For everyone else, you can enter every month for a new chance to win, and tell every single friend you know about my artwork!

That is pretty much it for now, thanks for the support and all that fun awesome stuff.

I almost took my eye out today

this morning I was cutting sheets of laminate down at work, then I flicked a piece of laminate up in a freak accident. It hit me straight in the pupil and I thought I took out my right eye. It hurt for a good amount of time afterwards, yet I said nothing about it while it happened or to my co-worker Ben who was in the office working on his computer. I came inches away from wearing an eye patch. Weird.....

Tax Tuesday

Today when I get off of work I get to go do my taxes with a CPA. For some strange reason I'm pretty stoked about it. Even thou I hate paperwork, and all that other super boring stuff. My goal is to get back home early enough so I can work on my new art project.

Last night I cut down all the wood that I want to print on to size. I started sanding the edges to make them rounded and smooth. So far it looks great and I'm way happy with the medium that I will be printing on. After I get everything ready, I will start working on the background painting of it all, then do my prints on top of it. In my head it looks great. I hope everyone else will enjoy and be as pleased with it as I'm.

Wow, been awhile

For whatever reason I just realized I have not written anything in awhile, and I'm bummed out by it. I have been super busy with a few projects plus I got a Nintendo Wii (I love to spell "nintendo"). The Wii is amazing but it does take me away from some of my creative work. I'm general nature is to do one thing with a strange obession. I think I have always been that way.

So after thinking a long time about my art and what I want to become really good at... I think I figured it out. I love to illustrate and I love to draw. I also love to paint and print. I'm much better and drawing and printing then painting. I feel like I could fuse the two to my own style. I'm working on some new projects to see how it goes. My plan is to do the painting that I'm good at as backgrounds. Then take my illustrations and print them on the front. I really want to play with different medias of paint and effects so the illustations look awesome. I almost have everything that I need to start. Hopefuly within the next month or so I can post some of the work.
