Toad and Flamingos aka "Funmingos"

What I like most about the Incredible Mr. Toad is the small detail of his ring on his finger. Plus his head looks pretty funny awesome as well. Below are a black and white and colored verison of some radical Flamingos. These Flamingos will be screen printed very soon - it will be a three color print. So hang on tight, and be ready to be floored by it.

Photo Shoot - Hooray!

Yesterday was perfect. The lighting was great in Seattle during the morning - a perfect amount of cloud cover to provide soft balanced lighting. A big thank you to both Amanda and Alexis for their time and modeling. They both did an amazing job. I would also like to tip my hat, and thank very much Bryn from She is a good friend of mine and an amazing, professional photographer. I choose some tricky locations, and ideas and she took care of the challenge without evening batting an eye.

In the next few months these photos will be used in a lot of my marketing material, website, promotions, ads, magazines and so on. I can not wait to share them with everyone.

Chartreuse Chic - BLOG write-up

Came across this BLOG write up this morning. It is a pretty rad combo of eco-fashion and great commentary.

"Start with the most important piece, the hiply irreverent organic tee shirt with artwork by Karl Addison - llamas never looked so badass."

Two New Drawings - And A Little Bit Of CoLOR

A couple of months ago I BLOGGED about the use of color and how I love it... but have fallen away from it since adopting my drawing style of black and white. Well, after thinking about it a lot, rolling around with color theory in my head I have put it to use. Below is one of my first attempts of this. To be perfectly honest, I'm very thrilled with the results and now I'm wondering why I did not start doing this sooner. More to come... be sure of that!

Los Angeles Store Visit

While I was in Los Angeles two weekends ago I had a little time to drop in to three of my stores in the area. Let me tell you, all three were awesome to visit. The first store I visited was Menemsha on Ventura Blvd. The girls in this store were so sweet and nice. I'm super glad they found me and wanted to order my eco-friendly apparel line. The second store I went to was Eden's Green Closet. Emily is the owner of this childeren's eco-friendly boutique. She was mega sweet and had a great set-up of apparel. Both new and re-used, recycled. The last store I made my way in to was Neighborhood on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Joshua is the owner/manager of this store and it was very nice to meet him. Great little store with lots of great apparel. Glad to be a part of their inventory.

If you live in Los Angeles you should go check out these stores. You will not be disappointed.

Eden's Green Closet - 310.450.2345 - 1423 Aboot Kinney Blvd. Venice, Ca 90291 -

POVevolving Gallery - Opening Night

My hat goes off to Jeremy and all the folks that made POVevolving Gallery an amazing success on it's opening night. Everyone that showed had amazing pieces. The theme of the show was "Hello Comrade, bring a friend." I had a few of my smaller illustrations in the show, but most importantly my friend Amy had some amazing pinhole photography.

If you are in Los Angeles, make sure you go check out this gallery. Their future shows will be just as amazing as this one.

Weird to be back in Los Angeles

It is a little odd and surreal to be back in Los Angeles.  So far, it has been pretty fun.  I'm staying with two of my really good friends Amy and Marinda.  They have this little cabin style house in some crazy part of San Fernando that I have never been to.  It is nice, because it does not feel like the city.

I drew a little bit last night and this morning.  Last night I drew this little man who was telling Marinda that she is "drunk."  I thought it was pretty funny, and so did the rest of us.  

Today Amy and I are going out to check on my three stores around town that sell my apparel and then we are going out to take photos.  Amy is an amazing photographer and has all these insane old cameras.

American Babies & Cowboys Drawings

Here is the third drawing in my American Series, this baby took a little longer then planned. I really feel strongly about the concept that it holds. I can not wait to get started on the next piece in this series.

The other drawing was just a fun little box that I wanted to draw because I like cowboys... not to fond of Cactus. I always get pricked by them no matter where they are to me.
