• Beats, beeps & bloops in the darkness. The new studio is nice. (at Mana Contemporary)

  • Me and baby brother. Probably 1987.

  • Star child connection. First official sleep over with her best bud Gogo today. Loey is hyped.

  • Here’s a good shot I found of the booth all set up.

  • Booth going up at SxSW.

  • 1999. Strange days.

  • Artwork done for the Chicago booth at SxSW by me and @antckone. This image will be printed large scale and become the actual walls of the booth as well as used for other design/promotional elements.

  • UR BEAUTIFUL

  • Some nice people decided to help me out by clearing some snow from my rear windshield today. Feeling blessed.

  • I try not to do serious posts like this too often, but it’s time to let it whip.

  • Everything is going according to plan.

  • This is what a lot of my nights were spent doing in 1994. 2014 is pretty different. Now I make nostalgic photo collages on my iPhone while my daughter watches “Angelina Ballerina” on our iPad. The end is surely very near.

  • Here’s a little detail of the illustration @antckone and I just put together for the City of Chicago’s booth at SxSW.

  • Working on a Chicago-centric illustration gig with Anthony Lewellen. Marina Towers are not easy to draw.

  • Killer Moon (at The Hideout)

  • In 1986, a few months after I started skateboarding, my neighbor Stevie Dread started calling me “Batboy”. This was due to a Batman t-shirt I often wore, and that the Batman symbol was cut into a couple of my earlier skateboard’s griptape designs. Instead of realizing that it was a bad idea, I embraced it. A couple years later I even started a little skater crew called Gotham City Skates. Finally I figured out that I would like to inspire more girls to want to have sex with me, so I left Batman behind. So here in 2014 I just landed this unusual gig which had me somewhat reluctantly drawing Batman - then very quickly REALLY ENJOYING drawing Batman - and I didn’t make the connection to my Batman past until well after I was finished. My brain works very slowly. It’s a pretty good brain if there’s no time limits, but I won’t be winning any quiz shows…or even remembering what I like to do before I’m actually doing it. I need to write myself a list.

  • Huggy Bear Conflict Resolution Systems.

  • The outdoor lounge furniture is much less inviting back in Chicago.

  • Duck show.

  • Enjoying some much needed down time with the family. Happy New Year, everybody. (at 8th and Ocean)
