Posts on Process
Here are some posts from my blog that describe the way that I make things. Most of the posts are about commissioned illustrations, but some are about different techniques for crafting objects, creating websites, or painting murals. Hopefully, you'll find some helpful information in there.
I recently finished a comissioned custom painted 3-inch Kidrobot Dunny figure for a collector. He liked a concept design that I had posted online from 2005 and asked if I would be willing to put it on an actual figure.
I use Squarespace as my website platform and hosting service. I've been with them for over seven years and it's been great. Previously, I hand-coded html for my site and had to relearn standards every time the technology changed. Now, I just focus on the content and Squarespace keeps everything tidy.
Lately, a lot of people have been asking how I make my gold-leafed buttons. I thought I'd just go ahead and spill the beans right here on my blog so you can make them too.
I recently finished some promotional artwork for Austrian musical phenom Blonder Engel and his band, "Die Hedwig Haselrieder Kombo". Blonder Engel was a fellow artist-in-residence for the KOMM.ST festival in Anger, Austria and we chatted about comic-books, movies, and cowboys.
I've just finished the second piece in a new tiki-themed series and I thought I'd post a bit of my process here on the blog.
I'm back in San Francisco, decompressing after a three-week adventure in Austria. I was invited back to beautiful Anger, Austria for the KOMM.ST "Ten Days" art festival as an artist-in-residence.
Creative agency Manifold contacted me to design the artwork for a custom arcade cabinet for their 4th anniversary celebration.
