Folks, the holidays are upon us. So, to get into the holiday spirit, and to make some room for 2018, I'm doing a little Black Friday/Small Business Saturday sale all week long until the 25th. Using the coupon code SMALLBIZSATURDAY will give you 25% off your order before shipping. It is eligible on all items, including those that are already marked down. WHAT A DEAL.
Orders won't be shipped until/or around the 27th-ish. If you have any questions, you know the drill.

'Sup friends. Just wanted to let everyone know the WrestleFest poster files have been sent off to the printers. As for when they will be done, that is something Steven Piper probably can answer better than I. As mentioned in my previous post, some group members asked for the poster to be done in time for Christmas, so all I can assume is that I'll have some copies for you fine folks at some point in December.
But feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions.

Hey dudes. Hope you're all having the spookiest Halloween.
I figured since the cat is out of the proverbial bag, I'd drop some info about the 'WrestleFest' poster. I am expecting 15 Artist Proofs, and some of the Bobby Heenan handbills I did for Mr. Steven Piper and company. I'm probably gonna set 2 or 3 aside for myself, so that'll leave a dozen for the site.
I am actually in the midst of finishing up the WrestleFest poster at the moment, and I'm hoping to have it to Steven soon so it can be sent off for printing. I know a few of the group members asked if the poster can be done, and in hand in time for Christmas. So, as soon as I'm done, it all depends on how fast it can be printed.
And on a final note, a quick 'Thanks' to everyone that has messaged/e-mailed me about liking the poster. This was my biggest poster/project yet, and I'm glad it's been well-received.

Hey friends. I'm pleased to announce (and probably to the chagrin of some) that I am not dead. I've been busy the last 6 weeks or so, working on a big project for some fine folks. I haven't had much time to work on other things, but I did spend an evening printing off a Luke Skywalker handbill I've had drawn up for a while now.
Anyways, hope you're all doing well, and thanks for the continued support.
August 21, 2017
Did you guys get a load of that solar eclipse?? Wild stuff.
Anyways, about those prints. They'll be up in the shop some time tomorrow afternoon-ish, eastern time. No specific time, just whenever I feels like it.
I will have a limited number of Artist Proofs available for the three 'Heels & Faces' prints. Unfortunately I don't have any of the Lo Pan print 🙁
I'll have something posted on the Facebook page when they're up.
August 15, 2017
Hey dudes. It's been a while. Just wanted to share that I'll have some brand-stinkin'-new prints available sometime next week. To be specific, three new 'Heels & Faces' and the completed version of this 'Big Trouble in Little China' Lo Pan print. Just waiting on an ink order to get here. I'll post something on Instagram & Facebook when they're all done.
I can also put up a few of the Johnny Cash posters I shared on my IG last week. I have to mention that they are my first attempt at a larger print, so they aren't exactly "pristine". There are a few pin-hole marks, but not super noticeable. That being said, I can have them up with the other stuff next week if there are any interested folk.
And hey, I encourage you all to check out the website of Ralph Stollenwerk at pinkbikeralph.com. He has some really excellent stuff including the RoboCop mug I showed off on my IG this morning.
July 24, 2017
The Bret Hart and Roddy Piper orders placed last week are out for shipping. Thanks to everyone that picked some up.
I'm gonna *try* to do at least 2 new Heels & Faces handbills every month. It all depends on finding time to sit down to draw and print them, but I feel confident that's a realistic benchmark.
Also, I'm hoping to have something new to share in the coming weeks. Keep dem peepers peeled.
July 19, 2017
Hey guys. Just posting a reminder about the Bret Hart and Roddy Piper prints. I'll have them up around 2pm Eastern time. I think these ones might go fast.
Also, I plan on including some freebie coasters & stickers like I have for all my previous orders. Unfortunately I don't keep track of which coasters get put into each order. I select them at random. SO, if there's a specific coaster you'd like, add a note in the order, or shoot me a message and I'll make sure it gets added.
And lastly, I have inquired at my local post office about shipping internationally. It appears it would be in the neighborhood of $25.00 USD to ship a flat-rate mailer around the globe. And obviously, it would go up depending on the weight of the package. CRAZY, I know. So, right now I am looking into other shipping options to Europe that aren't so god-damn expensive.
July 17, 2017
'Sup dudes & dudettes. You're probably here to get some details about the 2 new prints from the 'Heels & Faces' series. I'll have the Bret Hart and Roddy Piper handbills up in the shop on Wednesday afternoon. I'll also have a couple AP's of each up as well.
Any questions; you know the drill.
EDIT: I'll have them in the shop probably around 2-ish Eastern time. Shoulda included that in the original post.
June 26, 2017
All orders placed last week have been completed and shipped out. I checked, AND double-checked each order, so I'm pretty sure I didn't miss anything. But, if I did forget something, please contact me and I'll get it straightened out ASAP.
Again, a massive thanks to everyone that placed an order, not only this past week, but any time in the last few months. Much appreciated.
June 22, 2017
I want to extend a big ol' THANK YA to everyone that picked up some prints. You guys and gals are so rad.
I'm planning on putting the orders together this Sunday, and then ship them out on Monday.
On a semi-serious note; After some self-deliberation over the past few weeks, I've decided to take a short break from illustration and print-making this summer.
To be honest, I am simply burned out. I don't feel creative right now. All the work of making prints over the last 10 months has me wiped.
I apologize to anybody that has inquired about commission work over the last few months. I know I set a tentative window of late June to start on commissions, and I thought I would be up to do some more work, but I just need a reset.
The store will still be open and I'll fulfill any orders that come in. I'll answer e-mails/messages, post on here occasionally, and most importantly -- act like a complete idiot on social media. I just need time away from the designing and printing stuff for short while.
Perhaps I'll get around to reading some new books? Or work on my cheesecake recipe? Regardless, I will be back with some extremely cool shit for you fine folks.
Thank you for all the support.
June 21, 2017
All the prints I have tortured you with over the last 9 months have been added to the shop. I wanted to have everything up sooner, but of course, I got side-tracked. I also dropped the prices on some older stuff in the shop.
Message me with any questions, comments or concerns.
EDIT: I must apologize to everyone from Europe that tried to buy something. It never occurred to me that I should have set up a shipping zone to Europe. Hindsight is 20/20, after all. I will figure out all the shipping costs through my post office and get one set up for next time, so you guys won't miss out on future drops.
June 15, 2017
Just a few follow-up items I forgot to mention in yesterday's post; I have some "Artist Proofs" of the 'Heels & Faces' prints that I'll also be putting up next week. I have some other test prints around here that I may put up, as well. They're printed on 'tag board' which is basically a heavier cardstock. It's the stuff I use for my business cards.
So, regarding the 'random time' drop; As of right now, I have no plans or obligations that day, but I didn't want to set a time and have something come up. So, that being said, it will likely be some time after 12pm EST. I like to think that gives everyone a fair shot at some stuff.
Again, any questions, feel free to message me.
June 14, 2017
Hey, friends. I am slowly getting things back to normal here at the headquarters, but I took some time to shine up the old site and add all my recent prints, coasters, and stickers. I even thunk up a name for the wrestler print series. How fun!
Now, about those prints;
Next Wednesday, the 21st, at a random time I will be dropping all the prints I have set aside over the last few months for you fine folks, including the stuff that did not sell at the art festival.
Everything that will be available is currently posted on the "2017" page under the "Illustrations" tab. There will be more Macho Man, and Undertaker prints available, along with the Road Warriors as a set. I have yet to do a thorough inventory of everything, but I will be getting to that this evening. Please, feel free to hit me up with any questions.
June 11, 2017
Just like that, my art festival days was over. This weekend was very successful and first off, I want to extend a massive THANK YOU everyone that came and endured the insane heat this weekend. You folks are so, so awesome. And a big thanks to everyone that has bought something, or just been supportive over the last 12 months. You guys are the reason I get to do this stuff, and I love you all for it.
Also, I have to mention that everything is kind of in a state of disarray at the moment; so as soon I get everything back to some-what normal, I will have some info about the availability of prints in the shop. Hopefully sometime this coming week I will have an update.

Folks! The Keuka Arts Festival is officially a week away. I don't expect people to fly in for this (but if you do that would be rad a hell), so this part is mostly for those residing in the 607 and 315 area codes. I've got a lot of brand new stuff to show off and it should be a really swell time. Plus, it's a great way to support local artists and enjoy the weekend with some good food, good wine, and good music. Hope you can stop in and say hi.
What: 10th Annual Keuka Arts Festival
Where: Outlet Trail -- Penn Yan, New York
When: Saturday the 10th, Sunday the 11th -- 10am until 5pm (Rain or Shine, preferably shine)
Why: Because I'll be there and I'll have cool shit to sell
And I also wanted to follow up on my last post about the clear film positives. I've had some inquiries about them since posting. It's still just an idea, but I would really love to get more feedback if they would be something you folks would be interested in. They're basically as close as you can get to "originals" since my work is all done digitally.
And finally, I'll have all the goodies I've been posting about for the last few months up in the shop sometime after the Festival. I don't have a date set at the moment, but I will give a well-advanced notice. And I might do some giveaways on instagram around then, too. I have a stack of misprints/test prints that I'd rather see go to a good home than in the trash.
May 24, 2017
Hey guys and gals. Just wanted to thank everyone again that picked up the Macho Man and Undertaker handbills (among other things) last week. And thanks to everyone that has messaged me with ideas for future prints in the series. Much appreciated.
I also wanted to put some feelers out there for an idea that popped in the ol' noggin recently;
Would anybody be interested buying the clear-film positives I use for making prints? I have a bunch piling up, and I thought it would be something different to put up for purchase. It's something I am still considering. Perhaps I'll throw a few in the shop next month and see how it goes. But let me know if that's something you guys and germs would be into.
May 17, 2017
Daaang, you guys are awesome! The small batch of Macho Man prints are gone, with a few Undertakers remaining. Thanks to everyone that picked them up! I̶'̶l̶l̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶m̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶m̶a̶i̶l̶ ̶b̶y̶ ̶M̶o̶n̶d̶a̶y̶ ̶a̶f̶t̶e̶r̶n̶o̶o̶n̶.̶
And please don't rip my head off if you missed out on the Macho Man prints today. I'll have more up in June. This was just a small sale for the eager beavers out there. There will be more with some new ones in tow! Pinky swear!
5/19/17 Edit: The Macho Man and Undertaker handbills have been sent out and they should start arriving at your mailboxes early next week. I was going to wait a few more days to send them out, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get to the post office as early as I planned Monday morning.
May 16, 2017
Hello, gang. Whaaat's happening.
I suppose most of you dropping by want some details about my instagram post from yesterday. Pull up a chair and I'll fill you in;
I am starting a series of old-school wrestlers (thanks to Steven Piper for the idea!) limited to 80s & 90s era guys and gals. I have no idea how large of a series it will become, but I have a short list started, and I am definitely taking recommendations and requests. So, feel free to message me with wrestlers you'd like to see.
A VERY LIMITED amount of the Macho Man and Undertaker handbills will be in my shop at a random time tomorrow (5/17) afternoon. BUT, do not fret if they're gone before you can snag them. I will be putting up more in June after the Keuka Arts Festival, and by then I may have more wrestlers done. So, if you can not hold out until then, there will be some for the taking tomorrow. This is just a low-key random drop, no hullaballo or ruckus.
And finally, everything else featured in my instagram post will also be available in June. I'm gonna set prints aside for my shop to make sure everyone has an opportunity to get something.
Take it sleazy!
May 10, 2017
Hey, friends. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I, myself, have been insanely busy, as of late. Today marks t-minus one month until the Keuka Arts Festival, and I still have a crap-ton to do. I see many coffee-fueled print sessions in my near future. But, really, I'm in okay shape for the festival; that's just the anxiety talking.
Anyways, I've been working on some really neat stuff. Some pop-culture related, and some original work I think you guys will like. I'm considering keeping it all 'super top-secret confidential' to keep you in suspense, but I'll likely post some pics on instagram soon.
Take it sleazy!

Hey folks. I've decided to try out something a little different for my "home" page. Instead of congesting my personal Instagram with posts featuring mile-long descriptions about the availability of prints, I figured it would be easier to send you here to get the details. I'll update this when I have things available, or when I have something new going on. Hopefully this makes things a little bit easier for everyone.
