Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! This whole week counts as Halloween as far as I'm concerned. I still don't have a costume idea and the days are counting down. I don't know how I'm going to top last year's NYC Halloween parade outing as David Bowie from Labyrinth, but I'm taking suggestions. I need to get get busy.

In the meantime, enjoy Count Dogula. He was created for a t-shirt.

I recently did these pieces in collaboration with Edson, continuing our string of fashion illustrations for AVENUE magazine. These depict a few activities favored by the New York social set, and were included with an article titled, "My Perfect New York Day". I wish I could afford to do these things every day, but New York is the kind of town where too much of all this will make you broke! be loaded in NY, that must be the life.

The line art is by Edson, and the color backgrounds were created by me. They're mostly digital photo collage, combined with fabric swatch textures for the clothing. Hope you enjoy.

Fall Outré Boy

Hey peeps, my loyal peeps who give a crap, thanks for stopping by. I'm tossing out a post just to stay on whatever radars are left out there. I've been busy, busy, busy. Working hard for the money. Shakin' the money maker. We can't be too careful during these economic hard times brought to us by the lovely Bush administration, so I've been doing all the freelancing I can.

I just finished this illustration of Pete Wentz, the cute bassist from Fall Out Boy, and I thought I'd share the joy. It'll be accompanying an article about his penchant for kissing boys (probably for shock value) and the recent media exposure of his private parts (via his handy Sidekick). I can't say I'm a huge fan of his music because I haven't listened to most of it, but I will say I'm willing to support these new kids with androgynous leanings and lax sexual boundaries. Try as many flavors as you like...that's all I'm sayin'.

I witnessed further evidence of Mr. Wentz's coolness recently when I stumbled into lesbian night at his bar, "Angels & Kings", in the East Village. I tagged along with my friend Julie for "Starlet Sunday" and was impressed that he'd offer up his bar for just the ladies one night of the week. Of course, maybe that's in hopes of getting in on the action, but hopefully it's a purer gesture. Whatever the case, we had a blast and I walked around secretly hoping to run into Ashlee Simpson lip-locked with some butch babe.
