What's on this page? 

This is a little index for this page, barring a few surprises, the art here is displayed in sections, which are mirrored in a photo grid [below]. Keep scrolling down to see more individual plates and prices. Here's a list by name: sections here are as follows:

• The Drug Series - my opus - long term manifestation - easy to postpone - this work makes me famous years from now 
• Medicine Watercolors - wet on dry - abstract graphic art expressing time, evolution, entropy, balance, life, living, dying, air, earth, fire, and water
• Ecstatic [ part 1] - peyote flowers and life bursting inside everything, 3-dimensional medicine wheel, intellectual art manifested by "craft"
• Abstract Watercolors - wet on wet - attempts are randomizing color and shapes, like clockwork my mind tries to compartmentalize what I'm painting
• Pixel-Bear - an experiment in pro-gay propaganda, pop art for an audience of gays and their allies, with the intention of opening hearts and minds
"the drug series"  ·  work in progress
I've presented this first because the iconography is bold; I look forward to finishing them and finding a new opus. I can only paint them with lots of room and when my bills are paid. It's a full-time job for sure. There's no money in my family except one rich aunt, and she's not buying any of it. ba-dum-tshh :) I have a few more of these paintings that are still in the sketching/comprehensive stages: Yoda with peyote buttons; a Troll Doll with LSD; and a very large painting of a very small Rick offering you a massive crystal of DMT. The paintings are huge. They range from 3x3-feet to 6x6-feet.  If you want to support the creation of this work, purchase one from me, we'll call it a commission and I'll get back to work straight away. The paintings are shown partially complete because it gives you a sense of the craftsmanship to expect on the rest of the paintings.

If you've never seen a peyote button, they are GORGEOUS! There's a photo on my instagram. Peyote buttons get there names because they have these 'button holes' on the inside of the dried cactus flower. These little spots are white and comprised of super fine, tiny hairs. The top of the 'button' gets a random pattern of spots where the fur seems to be growing through the button. The top can have a lot, or very few, spots. 
Cereal Box Crucifix: the power of crunch compels you

What can I say? I'm sorry? 

Look, these are ridiculous. As if every three bowls of corn pellets needed this much cardboard for presentation to the world.

There is a website where you *can* buy these from me. I put it together because it was the easiest way to answer the question, when friends would ask which one I have now. I currently have about 18 from a recent show. Plus I have a few dozen preserved older cartons here and I will adapt to new cartons as well, however, these early versions are built of of sturdier cardboard. You'd think they'd just stop packaging things like this, but no, they never do.

And finally... I ask for $120 for these because that's what I think it's fair for my time and work, but I also accept any payment for them. I literally just want everyone I know to have one. I've been paid $200. I've been paid $60. I'll take $20 if I know you're like me and understand the meaning of the hardship. There is no shame in having, or not having, disposable income. It's a shame if you don't share yours with me, by hanging this in your space and smiling along about the absurdity of humankind.

Pixel-Bear: an experiment with pro-gay propaganda and Pop Art iconography

The very scary think tank of billionaire war profiteers called the Atlantic Council recently [May 2018] came out saying the American people should be propagandized “for our own good.” The nerve of these people. Pixel-Bear is my attempt to propagandize humanity, for their own good. Homosexuality is natural. We are innumerable individuals and we are equals, in every respect, to any and all other human beings throughout history and in every future imaginable. Humankind is not even capable of dissuading nature's homosexuality. Individual's like Mike Pence are the humans that are actually expressing what will become known as a human deficiency. Their inability to love thy neighbor currently makes them appear liars and frauds. In the future this deficiency will be seen as a mental illness. 

Pixel-Bear is designed for adults to give to their kids. It’s for adults who understand humanity will benefit from positive propaganda. And from being propagandized to embrace and celebrate diversity. Pixel-Bear is for parents who want their kids to grow up understanding that the alt-right suffers from a dark and misguided "pro-homogeny" mental illness. Pixel-Bear is for people who want to combat dark forces they see harming our world these days.

Pixel-Bear is very much “okay for kids!” They will never be exposed to anything greater than the simple message “Pixel-Bear is Gay. And That’s Okay!” And only that when you let them. Kids will become adults and eventually appreciate the deeper meaning in the artwork. I like to imagine adults 30 years from now thanking their parents for raising them right around what was known then as 'the gay issue.' I like to imagine Pixel-Bear being part of the propaganda that resolves it.

abstract watercolors

The paintings here date back to the summer of '95, when I first started using the watercolor medium to express ideas. Achieving the effects of airbrush with tight hand skills using the wet-on-dry technique.

From the very first time I sketched the crosshairs with the concentric circles, I was representing masculine and feminine energy, and the results of their dynamic in balance. The place that they cross is where their combined love manifests something new, be that children or ideologies like "gods" and "monsters." The concentric circles express both time and evolution. Spaces collapsing inward represent entropy and manifest themselves in the paintings as figurative. Because of this some are named after what has become manifested, for example the first image again is a girl carrying water, because it manifested itself as that. I simply allowed that to happen, especially if I see it coming like I did with the water bearer.

Enough about these. Please ask me if you have any questions. Some of this work is still available and I strongly encourage understanding it's roots and the philosophies surrounding medicine wheels and four-sided mandalas in Tibetan and buddhist cultures as well. Follow my Instagram for sketches and diagrams.
