Behind the schemes...

I found this little guy or should I say lady laying around my office and thought it was interesting enough to post.  Nearly forgot I had sketched this over a year ago before I even attempted starting.  The original title was apparently "I'm all fine by myself here, thank you", which became "I Need My Space"  Anyway as an artist I love seeing the process and behind the scenes, so hopefully someone appreciates this.  It was awesome seeing someone so excited to win a piece I painted on the floor of my old apartment.  Hope the lucky lady that won this piece last night at the show gives her a good home.

Joe signing off.

My 2nd annual 50/50 show, showing...

Last year was my first year in the wonderful 50/50 show up in Cleveland, OH.  The overall experience was great so I decided that I wanted to be apart of it again.  This year's piece is a watercolor/ink titled "I Need Some Space".  Featuring two of my favorite subject matter...women and outer space.  Sure the title may be a little tongue and cheek, but why not?

Poster's don't preach

I'm sick of this poster. I'm tired of the played out parodies. I hate the overall idea. Keep calm during war time and stay busy you little useless worker bee. And the rediscovery of this thing is like opening up old wounds. Now every damn hobbyist has a "keep calm and..." fill in the blank with whatever the hell it is you do. So how about not. I'm tired of it's fucking face.

Hopefully I can print it soon. :)
