I created the above piece from cut paper for the "Postcard Correspondence" show which opens at Gallery 1988 this Friday. The image depicts the Crayon Ponyfish from The Aquatic Life of Steve Zissou and is meant to be a souvenir that could be purchased at the gift shop of the Zissou Society Aquarium.
Both the original piece, and a limited run of 50 signed and numbered, as well as very affordable, postcard reproductions will be available at Gallery 1988 once the show opens.
"Postcard Correspondence" opens at Gallery 1988: West, 7308 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046, on Friday, March 20, 2015 from 7:00 - 10:00 PM and runs through April 4, 2015.

The mail brought me postcards I had printed for an upcoming show. This is the first time I've made anything resembling prints available of my work. Information on the show, the image, and purchasing will be posted here in the near future.

Today is the first Monday of the month which means it's time for "Ask Me Anything."
You can ask me any questions you'd like, whether it's about my work, opinions, influences, favorites, least favorites, or anything else you think I might have an answer for. Questions can be posted in the comments section below, and I'll either answer them there, or in a separate post sometime later in the month.
I've been asked a lot of good, thought provoking questions in the past as well as some really banal ones, all of which I tried to answer. You can see the previous questions by visiting Ask Me Anything #1, #2 , #3, #4, #5, #6 , #7 , #8, #9, #10, #11, #12 , #13, #14, #15 , #16, #17 , #18 , #19, #20, #21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28, #29, #30, #31, #32, #33, #34, #35, #36, #37, #38, #39, #40, #41, #42, #43, #44, #45, and #46. Answers not found following the questions can be found in the archives section for each associated month under Ask Me Anything.
Now ask away.

Today marks the 30th Anniversary of the classic high school movie, The Breakfast Club. To mark the occassion I thought I'd share this piece I did for "The Road to Shermer" the John Hughes tribute show at Gallery 1988 a few years back. This piece was called "25th High School Reunion" and showed what I thought the characters from The Breakfast Club would look like twenty five years later. I didn't go about this the obvious way. First I determined what sort of careers and lives they'd have 25 years after the movie, then I age progressed the characters based on those decisions. I never went and looked at photos of the actors as older adults.
The piece actually started as something I made for the 25th Anniversary of my own graduating class. Originally, Emilio Estevez's character was wearing an athletic jacket from my own high school. When I repurposed it for the Gallery 1988 show, I replaced the jacket with one true to the movie.
You can learn more about this piece by reading the article by Brian McQuery in the debut issue of Backstory magazine.
