Here is my submission titled "Mother" and it will be available to purchase at the show.
Opening August 30, 2014, The Art of Darkness: Inspired by the Paranormal celebrates the paranormal through visual art.
Since Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts is housed in the Banfill Tavern, a place where rumors and evidence of paranormal activity is prevalent, BLCA is proud to present The Art of Darkness: Inspired by the Paranormal in the Banfill galleries August 30 to September 27, 2014. Gallery admission is always free and the regular hours are 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
An open call for paranormal inspired art was distributed this spring and entries were received from all over the world in a variety of mediums. Noted Paranormal Radio Personalities Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis of Darkness Radio and BLCA jurors selected, from the entries, just over 100 paranormal inspired works of art from artists from 15 states, Canada, and England. The exhibition will showcase photographs, paintings, drawings, sculpture, mixed-media, and more.
The opening reception is Saturday, September 6 from 6 to 9 pm. All members of the public are invited to join some of the artists, the Darkness Radio hosts and other paranormal enthusiasts.
On Monday, September 8 at 7 pm, we’ll host a discussion on the history of the Banfill Tavern and see the paranormal evidence that has been collected by the Twin Cities Paranormal Research & Investigation. This is a free event, but RSVPs are welcome to help us plan.

Proud to be part of the NIGHTMARE of "The Art of Living Dead Dolls Book" by Mezco Toys.
My illustration is titled "CHOPPED" .
A ghoulish homage to the world-record-holding doll line, The Art Of Living Dead Dolls book is an artistic celebration of the beloved darkness created over 16 years ago.
Entombed with over 100 spine-tingling images from more than 80 different artists, this art book is printed on deluxe glossy 100lb stock. Featuring an embossed cover and presented in full color, it is a perfect addition to any library, coffee table, or mortuary.
The Art of Living Dead Dolls is packed full of unique imagery created by world-renowned artists including Joshua Hoffine, Angus Oblong, Dan Brereton, Yuki Abiko, Emily Yishizawa, Michael Pasquale, Rotten Orange, Stephen Blickenstaff, Punchgut, Shelby Vogal, and many more.
Also contained within this volume is a section of fan art, tattoos from those who have pledged their flesh to Living Dead Dolls, and highlights from the wildly successful 2006 Living Dead Dolls Art Show.
The Art of Living Dead Dolls additionally features a foreword by legendary master of monster portraiture, Basil Gogos.
The Art of Living Dead Dolls is a must-have for any fan, purveyor of the macabre, or just those interested in things that go bump in the night.
But be warned: viewing of this book alone may very well lead you down a path of nightmarish insanity!
I have been messing with this style for a few years and i am getting closer to the gritty back alley vibe i have been aiming for. This one is 24 x 37...it will be tied up in a show for a few months----but send me an email if you are interested and snag it when it comes back home.
Proud to be nominated for "Best established visual artist" for High Plains Reader "Best of the Best" ---you can still hit the ballot box at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JCYVLYL
Thanks for the nomination & votes!
I was moving some shit around my studio i found this (and some other art oddities that i will post later). I dropped some spray paint down on chip board and screen printed over the top of it. A forgotten experiment....the only one i ran in this style and i wish i would have thrown in a few more like this.
