My quail chick from another taxidermy class with Sue Jeiven. — at The Morbid Anatomy Library.
Also to note- no animal was killed for this class. Sue gets her animals from a variety of places, including pet stores which would have just thrown the animal away.

Grit N Glory

I was recently invited to draw live during an event for the rock-and-roll boutique Grit N Glory, recently opened in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I was extremely honored to be involved with the event, but it was also a little daunting trying to figure out what to draw on a 9-foot-tall chalkboard.
In the end, I decided you that when you go with skulls, you can't lose.

A piece that I did for my old roommate Chi awhile back, and recently featured in the "Dreams Were Made For Mortals III" exhibition. I personally couldn't care less about sports, but I guess the Cryptkeeper was a Mets fan.

Degenerate Craft Fair

Over the past few months, I have gotten more and more involved with Carrier Pigeon Magazine. I recently was honored with the position of event and exhibition coordinator for the magazine, and it's been an exciting task to play out. Here's a picture of me and one of my co-workers at the recent Degenerate Craft Fair, in downtown Manhattan.
Don't all those prints look gorgeous?

Carrier Pigeon 1st Anniversary

There's been a lot that's happened since the last post, including me beginning to work for Carrier Pigeon magazine. I'm going to try to keep up the posts on here more consistent as time passes.
But anyway, it's already been a year in print for Carrier Pigeon! Come celebrate with us at our upcoming exhibition in the 20/20 Gallery.

Carrier Pigeon

I recently found out that my etching Patriot Pigeon won first place in a contest for the printmaking magazine Carrier Pigeon. The magazine has a beautiful collection of artists, and I'm very excited to have a part in it.

Mezzotint and Etching

The first of these pieces is a mezzotint I worked on this past winter. A mezzotint is a n intaglio process in which a copper plate is worn down to a black tone, using a tool called a rocker. The highlights of the image are then burnished out of this black tone. It takes a number of hours to accomplish, but I would say it is worth the wait.
The second piece Three Sisters is part of a series of etchings I completed involving Greek mythology and modern day circus sideshows. This piece was also accepted into the 2010 New York Society of Etchers annual at the National Arts Club.

Portfolio 2011 Extended

Portfolio 2011

I am creating this blog as a quick reference until my website is completed. I will be posting various pieces in my portfolio as time goes by.
The first piece is part of a series of a dear friend of mine.
The etching is something I have just recently finished and is entitled The Three Beggars.
The last piece in this set was featured in the 2009 New York Society of Etchers Annual at the National Arts Club. The piece, titled Collection II, traveled to Israel along with the Society of Etchers show.
