Hey y’all, Monster Show 4 opens this Saturday (Halloween!) from 7-9pm at Domy’s Houston and Austin locations, come check it out! There’ll be many, many fabulous and terrifying monster drawz by tons of talented creators, including the lovely Glade Whitworth.
Here you can get an all-in-one shot of my monster draws in process and a fraction of my new studio set up:
I’ve had this drawing table since the mid-90s, so please forgive the stickers. If you come to our house (Boongoo Studio) during this year’s East Austin Studio Tour, you’ll be able to see my whole setup!
Now Louisvillains can check out Hyperbox #1-3 and Masks, written and drawn by yours truly, and Impossible Objects #1 with text by Jak Cardini and drawings by myself. Ultra Pop! is an awesome store and I’m glad that we’re in there. When I went there with Jak this past summer I got several issues of Epic Illustrated, a Howard Chaykin graphic novel, some Moebius alubms, and a dope-ass Mnwka shirt. If you’re in the area, definitely stop by there!
My good friend Dylan’s solo show, Funky Junction Oracles, opens this Saturday (Oct 17th) at MASS Gallery here in Austin from 10pm to 12am. If you’re in the area, be sure to check this show out. It’ll be open until Nov 7th. Here’s an excerpt from the press release:
On view from October 17th to November 7th, Funky Junction Oracles employs a variety of media — prints, photography, painting, animated GIFs, and sculpture — to illustrate Reece’s attempt to fix meaning in a world characterized by ever increasing flows of information and rapid change in the complexity of social systems. Drawing from a range of sources that include the pop-metaphysics of the ’70s, the classical art of Greece and Rome, the internet, vintage nature books, rave culture, and Modernism in art, the imagery for much of the work is unified by an underlying sense of idealism and progress gone awry.
I’m super stoked about this show. Here are some choice pieces of Dylan’s old work from his excellent blog:
Well well well. Another week has gone by and I’ve failed to post to my blog on Tuesday. Faithful audience, I apologize – Glade and I still haven’t settled in from our big move, and I’ve been working on drawings for the upcoming Monster Show 4 at Domy Books in Houston and Austin, which opens Halloween nite. Actually, I haven’t been working on the drawings so much as I’ve been playing Zelda for research purposes.
Here’s some original Zelda concept art by Katsuya Terada:
They’re having a release party this Friday at Desert Island Books in Brooklyn (where you can also pick up a copy of Hyperbox #3, as my buddy Lanneau just reminded me!). If you’re gonna be in the area, be sure to check it out!
