Here’s an old drawing from 1991(!) that I did of Siskel and Ebert as Roman emperors, whose thumbs up or down decided the fate of all those in their realm.
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!!
Here’s the poster I did for their show at the Strand this NYE. The great type design was done by my pal Henry Owings. T-shirts will be available soon, and the show should be a blast!
Finally getting around to posting these Comedy Central character designs I worked on at Turner Studios earlier this year. Let’s start off with semi-nudity! The first characters I got to work on (Episode 202) were “dress-ups” of Callie and her sister Lillith:
A few zombie musicians:
Later on I added these guys for the end times:
More coming (Episode 204) if we make it past these guys!
My good friend and designer extraordinaire Erin Dangar put together the package design, art direction and type for the Indigo Girls latest CD.
She turned me loose on the illustrations, including the inside booklet and back cover:
I’m mighty proud to have my name (and web site!) printed along with Erin and all the talented folks working with the Indigo Girls:
Here are a couple early sketches, and where the style ended up:

A more graphic version of the Blackbird
The final version, more retro tattoo flash style.
Erin took me to the Indigo Girls show at the Botanical gardens, and afterwards took me back to meet them. They were so gracious and thankful for the artwork, and really nice down to earth people. The whole experience was great, from working with Erin on the design to hearing the show and meeting two Atlanta music icons in a relaxed and beautiful venue.
Speaking of awesome musicians- Erin is quite an amazing bass player and singer too! Check out her killer band, The Holland Dutch:
Eight feet tall, acrylic on plywood. I’ll have the piece displayed
at my booth Saturday, September 17th for the East Atlanta Strut.
Look for me near Joe’s Coffee shop on Flat Shoals, just north of
Glenwood Avenue. http://eastatlantastrut.com/
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!
I’ll have two collaborative pieces with Chris Warner at Alcove’s final show!
Whatever you’re doing this Saturday, December 11th, take a few minutes to stop by Alcove Gallery in Avondale between 7pm-midnight to check out the last show in this space. Chris is moving on and this one is sure to be a blast. Music by Tiger!Tiger! and lots of great art, not to mention food and sweet delicious beer. www.alcovearts.com
My first attempt at using “Brushes”, an iPhone painting application. This is “Freckles”, our chicken who is ailing from an eye infection. It’s a little tricky figuring out the program on such a small canvas, but it works pretty well!
