Sushi Doodle

I went to the studio with my lovely wife and best buddy last night and doodled
some sushi studies. There's something charming about a sushi and wasabi ninja team.

Kickin' up the taste and spice. I definitely want to make a print of wasabi and sushi skateboarding together.


Basquiat, the world just wasn't ready for you.

Jean-Michel Basquiat is an art hero of ours. Colin was introduced to him by his high school art teacher Mrs. Topp. Like any art teacher worth her weight, she was was trying to teach her students that the art world has a huge span of flavors and points of view. That art isn't about drawing something perfectly. It's about expression. Although I learned about him in college I didn't fully appreciate him until I met Colin. There is an amazing documentary called Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child. He really was ahead of his time. Especially in the way that he incorporated pattern, type and poetry. Below is a piece Colin did a little bit ago to honor his hero. Who is your art hero?


TGI to the mutha truckin' F

Yep, I said it, TGIF. And I'm not talking about the restaurant. This wasn't the longest week ever but...I really just can't wait to be a homebody this weekend. Rake some crispy leaves, drink some coffee...etc, awesome fall stuff, etc....At Hallmarket about a month back we sold a lot of sugar skull doodles. I really need to get these guys on our etsy. I think folks would enjoy them. Here's a very festively Friday example of what's to come...He's a spicy one. He even has a little sombrero. I did miss the day of the dead boat on these but oh well. Maybe next year.


New Blog, Old Blog

Have you ever had a to do list with things on it that just NEVER seem to get done? Yep....Well, I've been wanting to update our blog header forever. And I did it! Not that I didn't think I was the coolest person ever for having an animated pooping unicorn for a blog header. HOWEVER...eventually I'd like to start a new blog, using our actual names. One, to keep things simple. These days we all have so many accounts, passwords, alias names. It gets to be a bit much. I know I can hear some amen sistah's here. And Two, we are both working artists and it's important to get our real names out there in the art world. See, the thing is, we have some ideas cooking but until we have time to fully bake them we're gonna enjoy a little more unicorn poo ;) So, I thought for now, a new header would be a good middle ground. The yeti and the unicorn illo are originally from wedding invite and I thought it was the perfect, quick way to update MY blog to OUR blog.
So, for our "first"post I thought it appropriate to share our hard work from the wedding. Here are all the panels from our invite.  I cannot believe it's been a year and four months already. And that I haven't posted this invite until now. It was a 3 panel un-folder filled with illustration and info for our wedding guests.  It was a HUGE undertaking and because we didn't kill each other in the process, in addition to also planning a wedding, we thought...wow, maybe we could actually work together creatively!
