A quick Artlantis report!
A couple of weeks ago I did a rare art festival appearance, here in Atlanta. The Artlantis Music and Art Fest. Everything just clicked. The weather was nice and the turn out was great. I had a bunch of nice people stop by my booth,give a high five and buy some art! It’s great when you get such a huge showing of support.
I would like to give a high five to the staff and crew from Beep Beep Gallery . They did a great job organizing the fest and keeping everything running smoothly.
My next public appearance will be the Holiday ICE show in November.
If you live in Atlanta and want to come by my studio,send me an e mail and we can work out a time.
I just added a few new things to my Etsy shop so head over and check it out! Click > Twofour Manufacturing !
In other news, I will be doing ARTLANTIS again. It’s Saturday June 2nd at the corner of Ponce and N. Highland. Last year was real fun so come by my booth and say hello.Music,art,food,folks and fun.
This is the print that I did for the southern printmakers show at Young Blood Gallery here in Atlanta. It was a bit of a challenge for me because the gallery asked that it be on paper and I don’t usually print on paper. I really like the way my textures work with wood and was afraid that it wouldn’t work. I experimented with a few new techniques and in the end I think it worked out. Im happy with the background textures and I think the color really works with this image. Go see the show! It runs until the end of the month and there are a bunch of affordable prints for sale by some great artists.
19X22 screen print on paper.
I will be in this show at YOUNG BLOOD GALLERY this Saturday.
“Uniting southern artists, “Go South” will feature local and regional artists specializing in the traditional techniques of printmaking.”
Look at that artist list! This show should be pretty cool so come out if you can.

Fall is my favorite time of the year and as we head into cooler weather I am excited about new projects and new ideas!
Working on some new lettering and making stuff that isn’t dark or scary so I made this. 8X11 hand cut wood.
I have always like the idea of Watchers. People or animals that are here just to observe what is going on and keep records. Norse mythology tells the story of ravens flying around the world and bringing daily reports to Odin. Studies also show that these birds will remember faces and take out revenge on people that they feel have crossed them. I started making these as part of a public art project here in Atlanta to keep an eye on the city. I thought that I would let them fly to farther off places.

Punk Rock Positive Affirmations!
Growing up in the punk/hardcore scene left a huge impact on me and really helped shape my view of the world. It taught me to root for the underdog. It taught me that life should be about creativity and choosing your own path. It also taught me that being angry is ok and can be used as a tool to bring about positive change. After years of singing along with bands and reading lyric sheets ,the words to many of my favorite songs have become part of my DNA. Listening to a guy scream at the top of his lungs over blasting guitars “Rise Above, we’re gonna Rise Above” really can make an impact. These pieces are taken from some of my favorite songs and are daily reminders of where I have been and to keep moving forward for a better tomorrow.
