80s Skateboard Design

I love cheap giant wide 80s skateboards and skateboard art. The cheesier the graphics and more garish the colors the better. I broke about 3 of them when I was a kid. And I couldn’t skate on anything else. Skating reminds me of warm summer afternoons pushing myself around what seemed like a massive block on a rough asphalt road – dodging giant tar blobs. I still have dreams about skating down the hill next to my parent’s house – and wiping out going to the store to buy tooth obliterating nowlaters. Monster eating a frog – skateboard.

The Treachery of Images 2.0

This is a mock-up ad for an ePipe company where I piggybacked on the broad shoulders of Belgian artist René Magritte. He was always a favorite of mine because he used expertly painted objective art and merged it with the wit and caustic visual irony of Duchamp. His original painting is called The Treachery of Images.

asteroid 2015 TB145

Asteroid 2015 TB145 is special because it is going to pass close by earth on Halloween moving at 78,293 mph. It is uncommonly fast for an asteroid, the size of the empire state building and it would wipe out a large city if it were to hit. But according to the hyper smart people at NASA it will miss earth by more than a lunar distance. Halloween Asteroid Cartoon.

Georges Méliès A Trip To The Moon

Georges Méliès was a French director from the silent era  famous for his movie “A Trip to the Moon”. It had groundbreaking special effects for the time. It is  one of the early masterpieces of cinema – from a time when movies were made by legit artists. It is about a group of astronomers who hitch a ride to the moon inside a bullet fired from a large cannon. I painted the moon to look like Martin Scorsese who directed the movie Hugo.  It is a great recent film aimed at kids and about Méliès’ life. Scorcese is easily one of the greatest living directors and a famous film historian.
