Buying frames at thrift stores is a dicey proposition - most have mildly offensive art in them, but this one was a double whammy. I got a great wood frame for "Unbearable", and this print by SOI Hall of Famer F.O.C. Darley - all for $18. It's a lithograph on great aged paper and I couldn't resist painting with gouache on top. The best paintings I did in college were on top of old paintings, so I thought I'd give it a whirl again. I think there still some left to do on this one, but for now, here it is.

A new map for Dean Quigley and Delphine Barguidjian at SCENE Magazine - going to be used to show what neighborhood celebs are living in. Had fun tackling Manhattan. I've been hoping for a reason to do that little isle for a while. I must say in doing reference (and looking for apartments in NY) that many of those boundaries are in much dispute.

Here they are, with some details not available anywhere else. I've been working on these for the past few months for the current show at Gallery1988 with the great Bennett Slater (work and prints available to buy here). It's great to see the buzz on these - people seem to really love them - which is awesome. . . In case you were wondering, they were A LOT of work! At 130-200 hrs per painting all done by hand, they are the most complicated things I've done (yet), and I'm not one to shy away from complication! So enjoy, nit pick, relive the Spielbergian/Lucasian genius in all it's glory.
To the trilogies!!

Show pics coming soon, but I thought I'd toss up a little sketchbook while I was bussing around Los Angles before renting a car. I do love me some public transpo. Characters abound. Anyway, for you northeasterners like myself, I'd like you to take notice of the dress - and tell you it was 70 degrees and sunny when these were drawn. It's a different world out there.
