End is Near Group Show

I have a show coming up at The End Is Near in Brooklyn on July 1. The sister shop of Hand of Glory Tattoo, this new space is having their first gallery show. The exhibition is with Norbert Kox and Anna Sea. I've been working with Hand of Glory for a while now (I'm there monthly tattooing as a Guest Artist) and am excited to show some of my other work. My paintings have really been taking off lately. I'm working on wood with acrylics and gauche, really honing in on a precise visual and conceptual aesthetic. It would be great to see as many people as possible for the opening. 7-11:30 PM on Thursday July 1 at 465a 7th ave, park slope

Here's a small preview of some of my new work. Proper images and documentation of the show to follow!

Overdue Update

So the new place has been open for about six months now and everything is going great. I've been doing a ton of tattooing as well as painting and illustration. I recently designed the album cover for the band Just Surrender. My band Top Soil has been playing a bunch, too. We started recording our second album on Monday at Trax East and I'm really excited about the project. Check out a video of us playing live here. Another new development is the opening of my brothers Jim and Dave's new computer repair and internet cafe, River Net. They set up shop in the same building as my studio, so check it out! We're in the brick building next to the Bridge Cafe in Frenchtown.
