195. Silkscreen Skull posters available again!

I recently discovered a cache of posters I created as part of day 195 of my project back in December of 2007! 

These 2-color (metallic silver & red on brown paper) hand-pulled silkscreen posters are based on a photo I took in the Catacombs of Paris and a contour line drawing I made earlier in the project. The remaining stock is now on sale in my portfolio site store HERE.

Artist Interview: Freehand Profit

I recently had the pleasure of talking with my friend Gary Lockwood AKA Freehand Profit about our mutual interests as working artists and I recorded the conversation to share with you!


This LA-based artist is internationally known for his work transforming highly sought after sneakers into one-of-a-kind masks. He discovered this technique through his yearlong practice making masks, which was inspired by my own year of skull-making!
In this hour long conversation we discuss: 

  • The artist's education
  • Working with galleries
  • Valuing your work
  • Making a living
  • Priorities and balance
  • Your unique vision
  • Art collectors
  • Goals
  • Success & fame
  • and more!


And here are some links to some things we mentioned:

I hope you enjoy our discussion as much as we did!

p.s. This project happened because of my Patreon supporters! If you like it, please consider becoming one of my supporters there as well

Snow Day Skull


We don't get a lot of snow in Richmond, VA (though more lately than in the past) so pretty much every heavy snowstorm I try to make some snow art. The most recent snow was too powdery to really stick so I decided to try a relief image on my deck. I made it really, really big (so big it was hard to actually photograph from above). See the lifesize skull in the shot for a sense of proportion. 


I like seeing how things transform over time so I documented it that evening as well as the next day once the sun came out.


Like seeing what I make and want to know more about how I do do what I do? Join me over on Patreon! As little as $1 a month gets you exclusive access inside my studio.

Trying something new. Will you join me?

In an effort to push my art practice into the forefront this year I've launched a Patreon page
This is a place where people who like what I do (like you!) can help me do more of it by committing to a small amount of support every month and in exchange get a lot more access to my art and knowledge! I really miss the community I had when the Skull-A-Day blog was a in full force and I'd love to see if I can create some of that spirit again on my new page. Check out the intro video below, read the whole story on my page HERE and hopefully I can connect more with you this year!
