Big thanks to the mighty ZOLTRON for the opportunity to take part in creating a print for Primus’ show tonight, in Lincoln, NE. I will be releasing my copies and foil variants on Wednesday at a random time, over at

Wolfmen of Mars mission patch


Designed this mission patch for one of my fav bands, Wolfmen of Mars. Go listen to them. Your brain will thank you later.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Kirby!


I originally created this illustration in 2012 for the band Monster Magnet to use on their European tour. I was inspired by the incredible works of Jack Kirby. Arguably, one of thee most important men in the history of comic books, and the main reason I got to work on soo many cool characters during my career as an artist in the comic book industry.

I’ve decided to turn my illustration into an art print, in tribute to Mr. Kirby, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday today.

The GRAMMY Museum in L.A. and the Queens Museum in New York have announced they’re partnering to present an unprecedented two-part exhibition celebrating the lasting influence of punk rock progenitors, the Ramones. Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk, opened on April 10, 2016, at the Queens Museum in New York. Then it moves to Los Angeles on Sept. 16, 2016, where the second part will debut at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.  The exhibit will also commemorate the 40th anniversary of the release of the Ramones’ 1976 self-titled debut album.

I’m BEYOND honored and humbled that one of my screen printed gigposters (from Joey’s Birthday Bash in 1997) will be included and on display there amongst all the other awesome Ramones memorabilia. Objects which were gathered from private collections, all across the globe.  Go check out the exhibition if you get a chance, it’s sure to be incredible.

“Popgun Showdown”



“Popgun Showdown”

This print reflects life in a simpler time. When kids would play outside, use their imaginations and pretend, instead of sitting indoors all day staring at computer screens. When kids all over the neighborhood would gather together and play cops and robbers or cowboys and indians in backyards all over America. It was a time when hearing the words, “children playing with guns” didn’t immediately make you think of some dreadful story you had seen on the news.

“Ready for take-off!”


Ready for take-off!”

When I was a kid, flying these inexpensive balsa wood planes brought my friends and I endless hours of happiness. Our family summer vacations held many great memories playing with these planes. I’d go through a few of them every year. I loved the process of taking them out of the packaging, putting them together and watching them fly. We had such good times and our imaginations would soar almost as high as our planes did. I loved passing down the joy that I had playing with these planes, to my children.

“Junior Daredevil”



As a child growing up in the 70′s, there was one man that all of my friends and I had as our childhood hero.

All-American daredevil Evel Knievel.

We watched his epic jumps on ABC’s Wide World of Sports.  They were HUGE events for not only us kids, but the entire nation. ESPN “extreme sports” didn’t exist back then.  Knievel created the genre of extreme sports.  He was an extreme sport all unto himself.

We spent hours playing with our Stunt Cycle toy sets.  But nothing was better than riding around the neighborhood on our bikes, pretending we were stuntmen too.  We’d constantly challenge each other to see who could jump the farthest.  We’d launch ourselves off of crudely cobbled together ramps, built from anything we could find. We had some spectacular jumps, but we also had some equally spectacular crashes.

I recently told my oldest son about Evel Knievel.  We watched his jumps online and took out books from our local library. Those were a good start… But nothing charged him up more than that day he took his first bicycle jump off of his skateboard ramp.  After his shaky landing, the look of pure excitement in his eyes spoke volumes. That thrilling shared experience of his first jump, totally transported me back to my OWN childhood and we totally connected that day. I looked at my grinning son and said… “Yeah… I know.”

This print is my tribute to the great Evel Knievel and all junior daredevils everywhere…

“Space Patrol”


One night I was spending some quality time with my older son, sketching rockets and robots. We had such a great time together. The idea for this art print was born that night.

My vision for this art print was to make retro propaganda-style print using the rocket I had sketched with my son. A piece that hearkened back to early science fiction serials. Ones like Tom Corbett – Space Cadet, Captain Video, Buck Rogers, etc…

Family Print Weekend




My kids have been begging me to do another art print. We always have a good time making them, and I’m happy to pass on whatever screen printing knowledge I have to them, hoping one day they may follow in my footsteps.

We scheduled this past weekend as “Family Print Weekend”. My 7 year old son drew a killer robot the other day. It just looked too cool NOT to turn into a print and “Tin Can Man” print was born. My 10 year old daughter loves cats, so her print idea was a “Calico Kitty”, each one hand embellished with a pink nose.

The kids did great! I stepped in and helped out when needed, but both of my kids worked the squeegees on each of their prints. Needless to say, I’m a VERY proud Dad.

If you’re interested in picking up a copy of either one of their prints and helping to encourage a child’s creativity, please visit the Tiny Bird Press store. Thanks!

Hot Rod Hill Climb – 60th Anniversary


I’m always humbled and thankful when I get to work with an artist who’s work I admire. I was once again fortunate enough to work with one of my favorites, Jeff Norwell. Jeff was tapped to do the art for the 60th anniversary commemorative poster of the Hot Rod Hill Climb, and he wanted me to print it for him. If you’re in Colorado this weekend, snag one of these, as I’m sure they’ll go fast. 10 color, hand-printed. Limited edition, 100 pcs.

“A Boy and his Big Blue Box”



Boy and his big blue box

When I was a kid, I used to run home from school to watch my favorite TV shows. One of them, was this British television program that ran on WTTW, (the PBS station in Chicago).  It was a quirky science fiction show about a time traveller called the Doctor.  He and his companions whisked around space and time in a blue phone booth looking thing called a Police Box.

The year was 1980.  The show was called Doctor Who, and I, was hooked.

The Doctor at that time was played by an actor named Tom Baker, who wore a ridiculously long scarf.  I decided I needed a long scarf too.  I wrote a letter to some long forgotten address I obtained, and received a knitting pattern for the scarf.  I somehow talked my grandmother into making one for me.  It was awesome.  Even though I was ridiculed mercilessly by my peers for wearing it, my love for the 4th Doctor and his adventures never diminished.

Well, it just so happens that 2013 is the 50th year anniversary of Doctor Who. It’s the longest running science fiction television series in the world.

This is my homage to those days from my youth.  Days that were filled with countless hours spent watching Doctor Who and pretending that I too, could travel in space and time.

One Small Step – second edition



A little over one year ago, I first released my “One Small Step” art print. It celebrated the feeling of awe and wonder that we (as a nation) shared back on that night in 1969, when it was broadcast live on TV, that man had first set foot on the moon.

Since the release and subsequent selling out, not a week goes by that I don’t get an e-mail from someone asking about the print and if I have any “spare” copies that I can sell. My artist proofs have long since sold out. I noticed a few folks on Ebay trying to flip copies of the prints they had for ridiculous amounts of money. I don’t want people who dig my art to get gouged and pay through the nose for it…

So, I decided to re-print it.

The colors aren’t an exact match to the first edition, but that’s part of the charm of screen printing and of doing a second edition. Because each print is hand-crafted, please expect small variations. Each is unique and original; no two prints are exactly alike… enjoy their uniqueness!
