I drew poster art for Metropolis Fest 2, a festival hosted by Metropolis Vintage. Metropolis Vintage is a Manhattan based used clothing store who hire me to do a lot of things and are nice guys.
The poster was also printed onto T-shirts. Here it is on grey.
Here it is on yellow.
Here it is on a baseball shirt.
Here's Mick Collins from the Gories and the Dirtbombs holding it.
Here are the store's owners selling the shirts. You can still get these at the Metroplis Vintage store. It's located at 3rd Avenue and E. 10th Street in Manhattan.

I did are for the band, NT and they were nice enough to mention me in an interview with the Village Voice.
The album art for the 7" is a little wild...
Our friend Nick Gazin did the artwork. He's a local artist who does surreal comic book style drawings and paintings of crazy people and monsters. A while back we played a show for him and asked him to pay us in drawings instead of money. He made some sketches of me performing but as some freaky blob monster, and one where my hair is consuming my head. It seemed like he understood our general aesthetic so when it was time to put the record together I asked him. He made a bunch of panels and we picked the creepiest ones.

My friend and client Karim texted me these photos the other day from a Hot Topic. There between the shirts for Avenged Sevenfold, Children of Bodom and Disturbed T-shirts is a shirt with art I drew for the Black Dahlia Murder. Black Dahlia Murder are a good band of nice guys and you can read about the time my brother and I hung out with them in Boston or the time I saw them at the Crazy Donkey.
The original drawing is a two foot by three foot black ink piece that took forever to do. It looked like this.
The original T-shirt that was made using this art looked like this.
They ended up having to erase the 666 on one of the character's forehead since Hot Topic isn't cool with Satanism. You can buy it here for $20.50 if you want it. I'm not benefitting in any financial way from the shirt being presented for purchase on a bigger scale so it doesn't affect me too much either way.

5:42PM - Subject to Change Postcard
I have some pieces that will appear in this show that opens February 11th in Soho. Here's the Facebook Event page.
5:37PM - NO ESCAPE
My second solo art show, NO ESCAPE, opened at Brooklyn's Mishka store on January 28th, 2011. There are fifty pieces on display and for sale. The show should be up for about a month.
Here's a T-shirt I drew especially for the show. It's available for twenty-eight dollars from Mishka's online store.
Here's a blog article I wrote about the opening for Mishka's blog.
Igor who does Driven By Boredom took photos and wrote a nice blog article about the event that you can see here. The photos are also on the Village Voice site.
My friend, Angry Jim Campbell, a great cartoonist and enthusiast of 3-D photography took three-dimensional photos. Take a look here.
You can buy original art I made here at the Mishka site.

Scion, the car company, has hired me to do a series of illustrations for their monthly free garage shows. The art gets used as a flyer, made into an animated video and then used as the cover for a 7" record. I removed the text from the flyer for the first one. Check out the site here.

10:08PM - Darth W.K. Comes Alive.
Andrew W.K. was at the Suckadelic art opening at Boo Hooray that I did this wall painting for and sent me this photo of him with this drawing I did of a Darth Vadery version of him.
Then someone, possibly Andrew W.K., made a Twitter account for the thing I drew. Follow Darth WK if you feel like it.

Someone did a crummy bootleg of my Jay Reatard shirt. I think they just printed the low resolution image on my Flickr page on iron-on paper.
This is what the legitimate shirt looks like. If you want one of the new Jay Reatard shirts I'm doing you can still sign up for the Shattered Records Fanclub for $75. You get a shirt I'm doing with a watercolor portrait of Jay, a 12" record of a live show he did, a 7" record that contains two songs he recorded the day before he died and an MP3 album. The vinyl records also feature my design, hand lettering and a few of my photos of Jay.
12:10AM - I painted Star Wars characters on the wall for Sucklord retrospective show a show in Chelsea
The Sucklord, a guy who makes custom bootleg arty Star Wars toys, has a retrospective show up at the Boo-Hooray Gallery in Chelsea that's up now. My friend Lamour Supreme invited me to paint Star Wars murals on the walls of the gallery and it was a lot of fun. Here are some photos of what I did on the Sunday before the show opened.
This is the unfinished piece. Apparently all the graffiti heads were getting confused about what the fuck I was doing because I was doing such drippy and uneven. I like drippy spraypaint is all.
Then the neighbors on the sixth floor complained that the fumes were making their kids sick and called the fire department who sent two trucks and then made us stop spray painting.
"RIP IRVIN KERSHNER 1923 -2010"
"HELP MY FACE MELTS IN HELL"
"EX HUSBAND WANT VISITATION"
"DARTH W.K. YOUNG SITH LORD"
My friend Lamour Supreme painted this intense two-headed Stormtrooper/Vader monster with a drill shaped dong. Then he posed with it like it was effing him.
I got to the opening late but Andew W.K. showed up and had his photo taken with my painting of Darth-him. Pink Storm Troopers wandered around and guarded the place.
I thought this was pretty cool object and without me even mentioning it the gallery owner gave me an artist's proof of this action figure/catalogue combination.
Here's a photo of how my piece looked at the opening.
Here's what Sucklord's art looks like.
Here's what the crowd looked like.
This guy and his girfriend found this helmet in the ice bin and took it home.
Vectar and his minions flip people off. Flipping off the camera is very punk and also hip-hop.
Finally the evening ended in Chinatown and DKE Toys bought us dinner. Thanks guys! The show will be up until January 23rd at 521 W. 23rd Street.
