I’m posting up my pictures from the Malice in Wonderland series today! Check out all eight paintings by visiting my “Originals for Sale” link on the website here. It was a hell of a lot of work and I learned a lot from the experience of doing such a big series. Eight paintings in just a couple of months is a lot of work. I’m, over all, pretty happy with the way the paintings turned out. Sure there were a couple of things I would have done different but, I’m still pretty happy with the turn out. If you want to see them up close just stop in at Avondale Artworks Gallery here in Jacksonville FL. The show will be up through the rest of April.
I also have available, for the first time, limited run giclee canvas prints available for each painting. They are prints on gallery wrapped canvas and look just as good as the original. Each giclee is signed, dated, and numbered in a limited run of only 25 prints each. The gicless are only 100.00 and will measure 11×14. If interested in a print contact Avondale Artworks or just drop me an email and I’ll get it done for you. Thanks to everyone who supported me during the process of pulling this off. Thanks to Ken Stutes at the gallery for giving me the freedom to do what I wanted to and for having faith in me and my work. A big thanks to Kelley(my wife) and Jeremy(my son) for being so understanding when I have a deadline and have to work for weeks on end to get things done right. Thanks to everyone who loves what I do and shows such great support when I need it most. The next series of work is all ready brewing in my head. Stay tuned folks…Im on a roll.
Here is a pic of one of the pieces I submitted to the Haiti Benefit show and Concert that’s taking place tonight at Suite 106 Gallery at the Jacksonville Landing from 5-9pm. Theres gonna be some killer bands, free Moonriver pizza, and a silent auction with some killer local artists involved to help raise funds for Haiti relief. So come out the Suite 106 tonight and have a damn good time. For details on the show and the bands check out http://www.theouterbox.com for details. This is gonna rock!!!-
UPDATE- Thanks to everyone who came out to the show! Sorry I was not there to hang out, I had other obligations that night. I had several emails about this piece. The silent auction was a one time deal and this little painting went to the highest bidder that night for 50.00. Thanks for all the support and supporting a good cause!

Just sold another painting late yesterday! Thats two paintings sold in the same day and the third painting sold in just a week. I’m doing pretty darn good this month! Thanks to the person who gave this painting a new home. I really enjoyed doing this painting and I’ve had the concept down on paper for weeks. It was actually inspired from the “Designers in Toyland” show I wrapped up with the AIGA earlier this month. I was considering making a 3d sculpture of sorts of humpty dumpty and this painting was more of a sketch of what the final creation was going to look like. I decided to just go with the hand sewn skull bunny(s) instead, which were a hit anyhow. Thanks again for bringing a little bit of my style into your home. Hope ya dig it as much as I enjoyed making this character.
