This is the approximation for an accordion silkscreen book that I’ve printed with this image called Kraken. The colors are a bit off because photoshop for all of it’s glory I haven’t figure out how to reproduce the silkscreen transparencies that actually closer to the hard copy. This still gives a good idea of how it turned out- all ready sold over half of the limited print run.

I was looking at a blank page in my sketch book pondering what I might draw next- what haven’t I drawn before? what would be a challenge to draw? fun? different? Obviously. there are things that I usually draw- monsters, fantasy, animals. my usual fare- then it dawned on me. I’ve never drawn the barbarian- THE BARBARIAN. so here’s my rendition of Conan illustrated to what he would say “What is Best in Life”

I went to TCAF and it was awesome. I’m so glad that I was able to exhibit! It was great fun to go to Toronto with my studio mates- Aya Kakeda, Tory Sica, and Jen Tong (Thanks to Jen’s friend Irme for hooking us up with a spectacular hotel) The show itself was one of the best I have ever been to and I’ll do my best to get back there next year!

I’m almost out of the post-fest exhaustion pit, enough so to design my next silkscreen print as pictured above! title is “Harpy” I should have it for sale at SPX!
