Spirit Beasts and a new path…

  I finally completed the piece that helped break a creative stagnation.  The piece, Spirit Beasts (Andre’s GT), is actually the second version I created for Andre Van Wyck.  The first was in the vein of my works from the last 3 or 4 years; seemed solid when it began.  Eventually, I came to the conclusion that it just didn’t…

Crash Camp 2018

All photos courtesy Kyle Zemple Photography Crash Camp 2018.  What can I say? It started years ago when I started seeing some fishing vids on social media covering what some guy was calling “The Crash”. I couldn’t quite place what I was seeing; I’d never seen smallmouth act like they were in these vids, and in my experience fishing the…

The New Jam

Long time no rap about art. I’ve been busy the last 8-12 months with work, family, fishing and life in general.  All great, all fulfilling and all to be continued. As I’ve had time to step away from art-making, being an artist and generally thinking about my work, it’s given me some perspective on where I’d like to go and…

On a commission kick/need to make a mess

I cranked out some quick steelhead works as a part of the fundraising efforts for the Brule River Rats Stewardship Councils GoFundMe page. We posted the “steelhead sketch” by Jake Keeler at $300 and it was quickly picked up – which was awesome, and humbling.  All part of doing what I can as an artist to help a worthy cause.

The Four Horsemen

I recently wrapped a 4 piece commission. I think it turned out pretty rad.

Finding balance

Original posted on my Facebook and Instagram feeds on 12/4 Like some of you, I’ve been feeling enraged by a seemingly unending series of “wtf is wrong with our president, government, society…where the fuck is our heart and soul?”.   In times when I cannot find the right sequence of words, I seek refuge and guidance towards action in the…

Holiday Sale & New Stickers

I’ve added an array of stickers for sale through my Etsy page, just in time for the gift giving season. Along with these new offerings, I’ve also put all originals and my Elders t-shirt on sale for 25% off from 11/24 to 12/1.  No coupon to plug in, the price will already reflect the discount. Stickers are not included in…

Joey’s Buck

I started this commission sometime in the Summer (I think).  It took longer then needed, but I’m pretty stoked on how it turned out.  It’s one of a few recent commissions I’ve taken on.  In the past I have done a fair amount of commissions for commercial clients, but I very rarely do commissions for private clients; partly time, partly…
