There are ton of great artists and bands.  You can tailgate all day long with your own food/drinks.  There will be a big area set aside for grills.  If you don't want to bring food there will be a big line of food trucks.  And then at the end of the day there will be 3 movies (The Horror of Party Beach, Jaws, and Mad Doctor of Blood).

DCW - Dragon*Con 2014

After many years of attending Dragon*Con, my friends and I finally checked out the annual wrestling event a few years ago.  The annual DCW (Dragon*Con Wrestling) event is now a staple in our Dragon*Con experience each year.  After a few years of attendance we decided that the obnoxious and drunken antics/chants/cheers weren't enough to single our group of friends out, so we decided on a name and matching purple shirts.  The last 3 years the DCW Hooligans have sported a group shirt during the event.  I've been happy to work on the last years and now this years.  Here is the new design:

And here is last years done with help from the Phantom Troublemaker:

Phantom Troublemaker Logo

If you don't currently read the ranting and ravings of the Phantom Troublemaker then you should start now.  Check out NeedlessThings to get your sci-fi, geek, and luchadorkery fix.  I previously did a commissioned painting for Ms. Troublemaker which you can see HERE and you can check out the print on my Etsy site.  A little while ago we talked about me helping update his logo.  He recently unveiled it on his blog.  You can check it out below:

Thank You Dakota Blue!

All good things come to an end.  Yesterday I brought home all of my artwork that had been hanging at Dakota Blue.  They are closed this week while they do some serious remodeling.  They told me their plans and it's going to look fantastic when they're done.  Unfortunately for me, the new design calls for a permanent set of decorations to keep the look they are going for.

I want to thank Alan and Gigi for letting me display my artwork at their place for the past 2.5 years (and the 2 years back in 2007-2009).  They have been incredibly supportive of me, my family, and my artwork.  I can't thank them enough.  Go grab some food/drinks with the new look starting this coming weekend.

Epic Sci-Fi Foosball Game

Sleaze-Staxxx is a great local Atlanta band and you should definitely check them out.  I previously painted a painting for him a few years back.  I was stoked when he asked for another one.  This was acrylic paint on a 24"x36" canvas.  

I've got a print of the painting on Etsy.  Check it out here: Epic Sci-Fi Foosball Game Etsy Listing.  I will have the prints with me next weekend at the Inman Park Festival (4/26 - 4/27).  Hope to see you there!

Billy Dee as Two-Face

Tim Burton's Batman included a couple odd or questionable casting decisions.  People freaked out when they heard Michael Keaton was cast as Batman.  Critics were proven wrong as he nailed it and went on to be the best Batman for the next 15 years or so until Christian Bale (arguably) took over the title.  Another odd casting was Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent.  It's only odd because the character has historically been white.  As everyone knows by now Harvey has an unfortunate accident and becomes Two-Face.  People were speculating how that would look in the sequel if Billy Dee was brought back.  Unfortunately no ones knows because when they did get around to including Two-Face as a villain in Batman Forever, they ignored Billy Dee and brought in Tommy Lee Jones.

Phantom Troublemaker recently posted on FaceBook that he was curious how it would've looked and asked someone to show him.  I quickly volunteered and then promptly procrastinated for a couple months.  I went for a more comic book-y look with the orange and plaid suit.  I was stuck deciding on a background (as I usually am) and came up with 2 choices (see what I did there).   So here they are:

New Painting! Ron Swanson!

Here's a new painting I just finished of Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.  It's acrylic paint on 24"x24" stretched canvas.

New Work! A Mutant Lion Monster!

Here's a new painting/print I just finished.  It's a little more cartoony than normal but fits in with my bat guy and 3-eyed horned monsters.  But I liked the way it turned out.  I think I should do another one with it playing with a big ball of string. 

The painting is acrylic paint on a 16"x20" canvas.  And the print is available from my Etsy site.
