A couple fresh works are done and shipped off; they landed in Idaho just the other day.  Gonna be up in a legit show, with some legit fly fishing artists…more on that later.

For now, I’m waxing up a sweet new fishing cap from Coal Headwear courtesy of Bobby at my local fly shop, and I’m looking to schedule some bugger tying and Scotch sippin’ with my man MZA for the upcoming bugger-hatch.

Temps are up, the new jams from Torche are rippin’, and the season is upon us.

Horns high amigos.

Howdy folks.  I’ve been busy cranking out some new work and few other things in preparation for the FT3 stop in River Falls WI on March 6th.  I’ll be there showing my work along with Bob White, Josh Desmit, and John Alexander Piacquadio of The Twin Cities Urban Fly.

If you are in the MN/WI area, I’d love to see you there.

I finally finished this damn thing.  And it is bitchin’.  For context, go check out Geobass and it will all make sense.  Horns high amigos.

Risen

Finally getting around to uploading some works from the later part of 2014 to this website.  Also, making sure all the fish are with the fish and skulls are with the skulls (pages are updated, check em’ out).  This particular piece, “Risen” was a drawing I did on multiple plane rides for work last year.  I ended up trading it with one of my good art buddies, Jason Ruhl for a bitchin’ collage.

In 2015, I’ll keep cranking out work, go fishing whenever I can, make some beer (hopefully) and move.  I have at least a dozen cool pieces in progress that I’m amped about; some new style, refining of media, and overall good direction.

I’m also going to work on landing a show or two, probably for 2016.  The time is right to get the work back out into the public a bit and hustle that game once again.

Cheers amigos!

The Unreal Never Lived...

The Unreal Never Lived…

Been wrapping up some detailed works and cranking away at others.  Two finished.  Happy with them.  More Yob, more Pallbearer, more Torche, more beers, more Scotch, more cold nights, more dreams of early trout and popper eating smallies; more basement sessions, more making.

Cheers Amigos – keep those frequencies high.

 

My Pitch

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  If you’re partaking in some economy building this weekend, please consider supporting small businesses, independent businesses and artisans when possible.

For those that have asked about purchasing my work (and/or already have) thank you for the support – the money I make from my art helps fund making more art. Pretty cool. I’m not inclined to sell originals right now, as I’m trying to build a body of work for potential future shows. I do have reproductions of my work on Society6 – the quality is great (I have several myself) and I keep the prices low/reasonable on purpose. I’m always open to commissions, but I’m picky about which ones I do mostly because my time is limited.

So, that’s my pitch.

Lastly, thanks for following this blog, and letting me know that my work is connecting/relevant.

Cheers!
