Here’s a short documentary by Ayanna Seals and Frith Gowan about my interest in making monster images. The piece was made during a summer workshop taught by Jim Haverkamp at The Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, NC.

Here’s an image I made for a portfolio organized by Joe Lupo at West Virginia University. The portfolio, NOT Approved By The Comics Code Authority, included work by 9 artists who are influenced by comics.

Homer Johnson, linocut, 2012

In late April I was in Corpus Christi, TX participating in the Oso Bay Biennial. Tom Huck and I were the jurors for the Oso Bay North American Printmaking Exhibit at the Islander Gallery. We also had a show at K Space Contemporary Gallery called NASTY. I showed a wall full of Skulls and Skullareks + some recent large images floating on top (see photo below). Huck premiered his Hillbilly Kama Sutra suite. Lots of other good stuff took place during the week, highlighted by Dennis McNett’s “Wolfbats Beseech the Great Bear of Oso Bay” performance. Here’s a nice write up about it on Printeresting by Jeff Dell.

In March I was in New Orleans as part of Dennis McNett’s Wolfbat Railway. Lots of good hang out time with old & new friends. Josh Dannin and Carter Eggleston worked on my car – super good help. Josh wrote this detailed post for Printeresting. There’s also a good video of the event on Off The Wall.TV

Here’s the print that I made at Vermillion Editions last month. An edition of 40 but each image has a slightly different background.

Amarillo Skull, 2012

Last week I was out in Amarillo, Texas as part of the Vermillion Editions Limited (West Texas A&M U.) Inkslingers 2012 – Symposium of Print. Other participating artists were Jenski (Jenny Schmid), Michael Krueger and John Lysak. Lots of fantastic work was created. Thanks to Scott, Michael, Marcus, Amy and the whole Vermillion crew for making it an outstanding ink-slinging event. Read about the whole event on Michael Krueger’s post on FECAL FACE.

If you want a super reliable, very rich black ink try Speedball's SUPERGRAPHIC BLACK by Bill Fick. It's oil-based but cleans up with soap and water!

I Luv Linoleum


Where to buy linoleum

The best place to buy linoleum is Dick Blick. Choose from a variety of pre-cut sizes or by the role. Battleship Gray is best.
