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
Throw on some boots and come visit me at the Cabbagetown Chili Cookoff today (Saturday, 11-6pm). My booth will be on Kirkwood Ave between Tye and Powell Streets, just west of the park. Lotsa naked drawings to go with your chili and bluegrass!!
This is an art show for the kids I’ve been helping to mentor. Come on out if you can and support these great kids!
“Just wanted to say thanks to One Love. Y’all have showed my son, Lamontray, a whole different side of the world and he is loving it to the fullest…I love what y’all are doing for the kids, especially mine. I would rather for him to be joined with a group like this instead of joining with the groups in the streets.”

Drawings of classy naked people, that is… sold cheap! This Saturday, September 18th at the East Atlanta Strut festival. I’ll have a booth right next to Joe’s Coffee (in the lot in front of “Fluff and Em” Florist). I’ll be selling drawings from the past decade of figure classes I’ve held here in Atlanta:
Drawings of men, women and even babies!
Stop by, say howdy and pick up a cheap naked person!
Change is inevitable. In my case, it also seems to be happening all at once!
I have transitioned back to freelance work these past two weeks, I’ll be storyboarding at Trick 3d next week through September and continuing work on a Bruce Hampton documentary. This is keeping me busy on the work front. Next, my rental house in Grant Park is undergoing some updates in hopeful anticipation of new renters this Fall, and finally- the ASIFA figure drawing class is moving to a new location!
I’ll have more information on the possible new location(s) for the figure class soon. In the meantime, if you have any ideas for a great location please let me know!
Here is some history of the ASIFA figure class:
I started the figure drawing class in 1998 at Primal Screen, for the animators that worked with me at the original Monroe Drive address (next to the Park Tavern near Tenth Street). Owner Doug Grimmett graciously opened the sessions to outside artists as well, and the weekly classes attracted a regular following.
