This coming Saturday and Sunday, February 27th and 28th, both of my bands will be playing! I’ve created these posters for each show. The first is with my Jazz band Penny Serenade. There will be swing dance instructors on hand, and a cover of $20. The second is with my long time rock band Floating Coats, and it’s free!

Studio Outpost figure drawing memorial

May 17, 2012  |  Events, Figure Drawing  |  No Comments

This was from an ASIFA figure drawing session at Studio Outpost March 1st, 2012 in East Atlanta- before we were forced to move our class once again. This was taken for Audrey Jones, who runs an art program in Haiti. That’s her drawing at the beginning, and our lovely model Megan. Lots of talent here, including Jason who you see at 2:30 adding some gruesome details…

I had a blast creating on artwork and animation for Michael Koepenic’s awesome documentary on the legendary Bruce Hampton.

I also got to draw some pictures of another personal hero, Frank Zappa!!

Come on out to the Plaza tonight at 9:30 and see for yourself. It’s a great documentary about one of Atlanta’s living legends!!

Ugly Americans on Comedy Central tonight!

July 7, 2011  |  Animation, Events, Illustrations, Joe's Work  |  1 Comment

Finally! I worked on character designs for the second season of Ugly Americans from December 2010 to May 2011. I was fortunate enough to get to work with my old buddies Sam Leyja and Matt Jenkins as well as the rest of the fine crew at Turner Studios, as we cranked out dozens of characters for every other episode.

Tonight’s show (10:30pm, Comedy Central) is the first one we worked on, Episode #202 “Callie and Her Sister” (that’s one of the show’s main characters above, Callie). After the show airs tonight I will be able post some of the designs I worked on, including some “dress-ups” (and “dress downs”!) of the main characters. Look for more posts right here (it’s about time) over the coming weeks, as I reveal some other projects I’ve been up to!
