Death To Anders

Something that I made a while ago for my friends in the band, Death To Anders.

The Oldest Profession

I used to be a caregiver for this old Jewish guy who was a survivor of the Holocaust and this is about a story that he once told me about his experience with a woman of ill repute...

Here You Go Way Too Fast...Don't Slow Down You're Gonna Crash

SO, Ive had a really crazy night last night. MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE GOT CORRUPTED!!! and I don't have any copies of some files...I kinda freaked out at first but its a weird feeling knowing you've lost something intangible and somehow, I just kept telling myself, it doesn't matter. Luckily, Dave helped me out recover some files. A few are gone forever but I'm not gonna trip over it. I'm just glad I got back a lot of important data. Its hard coming into terms with the lifespan of certain electronic gadgets. Its easy to take things for granted sometimes especially when its gadgets that make everything easier for you. Somehow, I am just barely coming into terms to this. After that incident, I thought it would be best to keep posting all the other stuff in my drive, just so they can be online in case...just in case...

Downtown Art Show

Last Friday I took part of this art show in downtown LA and "showed some of my works". I only had three pieces in the show but i stuck several of my big drawings that i drew on these roll paper wrappers that i get from my work on the leats likely places people expect to find some kind of art. I had it all over the place, being visible but not calling too much attention, just enough to be noticed by the people who were paying attention. You see art shows tend to be an occasion of visual sensory overload, you see all kinds of shit and people and it can be too overwhelming so i thought, why don't put some of my stuff all around and see if it really makes any diference if the art is showcased in gallery wall or just a regular wall. Does that make it any less art? It was just a spur of the moment idea that i decided to execute (Thanx to girl named Lizzy for all the help putting tape on 'em) Anyways, later on that night, people just somehow started taking 'em down to keep and so i just decided to give those away to people. It was good to know at least on my part, that people wanted to keep it and have it. That alone means much more to me than having my art shown though it was truly a great show with a good turnout, i still feel weird about having my stuff be part of "art shows" but any chance to have people see it is fine i guess. I just finished the new "Smile Hard" and had some copies at the show and now i'm currently working on new comix and some drawings for a music video. I've also talked to the guy at Hi De Ho Comics in Santa Monica about having some of my stuff on collateral and they seem to be open for my kind of stuff so I'm hoping to make several copies this week to be available there for a dollar or two. Anyways, Here's some images from the show.

Disconnected Hands Forming A Heart

Hooray For Gnomes!

Feel free to create a stencil of this one.


Swallowed By The Ground.

This is part of a children's book project that got aborted. Rhea decided to make cards of it though and printed it out with the Gocco machine from her work. So, it wasn't that useless after all.

The Land Of My Birth As A Woman

Somehow, i always think of my birthplace as a woman whose beautiful mountains and fields i use to gaze into with such delight knowing that there are parts of her i can never truly know and discover even if i stayed with her my whole lifetime...A woman who exists in the remembrance of the hearts of those whose lives are forever touched by knowing such beauty and joy.


It didn't occur to me at the moment I did but this illustration that i did five years ago was subconsciously influenced by Munch. I think!

Extra Golden for LA RECORD

Here's a quickie one i did for the new issue of LA RECORD. I originally did Tinariwen but they said they are still figuring out the translation of the interview from French to English. So they asked me if i wanted to work on something else instead. And this is what I choose. OK Oyot System! Yay!
