Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 23, 2012
I have been drawn to Allison Sommers' work since the moment I laid eyes on it simply because I had never seen anything like it before. I still haven't. Nothing screams juxtaposition more than Allison's seamless blend of soft and disgusting.

End Stop & Frisk - hands off the kids!

Graffiti // Thursday, August 23, 2012
One of the most controversial police procedures is the Stop and Frisk search exercised by a number of police departments, most noticeably in New York City.  Based on police officers “suspicion” anyone can be searched and commonly Blacks and Latinos are stopped, but rarely arrested. The topic is a sensitive issue and even motivated someone to paint upside roller reading “End Stop & Frisk - hands off the kids!” on a buildings roof in Brooklyn.

Erotica // Saturday, August 11, 2012
'3DD' is book filled with beautiful women celebrating their curves in stunning 3D shot by Henry Hargreaves. 'Henry is a New York based photographer and breast enthusiast. His love of taking photos and the female form started as a young boy in New Zealand and as an adult he has practiced both hobbies in many countries of the world. The opportunity to combine two of his greatest passions was only a matter of time. The idea to do it in 3-D, well that was a stroke of genius.'

I like drawing potted plants, stacks of books, skeletons, little old ladies, and people looking generally pensive and melancholy, except when I'm drawing comics and then it's people (usually me!) looking ridiculous. My artistic heroes include Saul Steinberg, George Grosz, Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, and Lynda Barry.'
