This Halloween weekend San Francisco gallery Spoke Art is hosting its fourth annual WES ANDERSON “Bad Dads” tribute show, featuring tons original artwork based on Anderson’s films.

The gallery requested I create a couple works based on Fantastic Mr. Fox, and I couldn’t have picked a better film myself.  These two pieces are based on a couple of my favorite scenes:

“Bad Dads” will be a special two-night opening starting this Friday, November 1st!  Spoke Art is doing a special preview of work (contact them directly), and prints of both of these pieces will be available at the gallery.  It’s bound to be a great show.

Now online! Original art and prints now listed through Spoke Art’s site.

Last weekend wrapped up dozens of events for Design Week Portland with the closing party hosted by WeMake.  Not only did they feature an awesome SketchXchange with Laika director Nelson Lowry, the event showcased a silent art auction called Put A Bird in It, in which talented artists flexed their creative muscles on some pretty amazing birdhouses.

So much good stuff to listen to and look at, and tons of good peoples came out to celebrate the end of Design Week.

AND to top it off, limited edition silkscreen posters were created by ten artists – and I was lucky enough to be one of them.

Just lookit that little fox.  He’s pretty handsome.  And for my first ever silkscreen design (three colors, mind you), I’m pretty pleased with the results.

Not only that, but the 9 other amazing artists put out some spectacular posters too.  Check em out.

AND, double not only that, they’re only twenty bucks and all proceeds go towards art and music education!  So what are you waiting for?  Order one of them bad boys now (mine is almost sold out!)!

Animal Battle // Fox

This coming Spring I’ll be hosting my first solo show in quite a while.  I’ve been brewing a few ideas for about a year now, all surrounding the theme of Animal Battle.

In addition to lettering experimentation, I’ve been developing various animal soldiers in my sketchbook.  Initial sketches were quite violent, but I’m going to stray away from the bloodshed, as that’s not what this is really about.  Instead, my comrades will be armed with weapons of wood and indulge in frivolous costume.  Think Richard Scarry meets Lord of the Rings.

Last night I made friends with a fox, who can be both sneaky and genteel.

I played around with some quick digital color too:

Look for more colorful creatures in the coming months; my solo show will be opening at Pony Club Gallery in May!
