Here's my piece for this year's Streetworks project. Every year East End Main Street asks artists to contribute a new piece of art celebrating the east end of Charleston, WV. My piece pays tribute to the Kearse Theater, which was located on Summers Street in downtown Charleston and offered live shows and movies during the 60 years it was standing. It was torn down shortly before I was born, but I fell in love with the design of the building while looking at old photographs of Charleston.
Just like last years' project, the 2013 Streetworks pieces will be made into circular metal signs that hang on light posts all throughout the east end. Here's my piece from last year displayed on its post on Washington Street:
I did quite a bit of research on the Kearse Theater, and if you want to see pictures of it or find out more info I would recommend the page MyWVhome.com, which has an absolutely amazing collection of old Charleston photos.

I based my piece on Super 8, which is probably in a tie with Star Trek for my favorite Bad Robot film (and was partially filmed here in my home state of WV!) I thought it would be cool to show the kids after the events of the movie, making a new short film about the adventure they'd just been on.

please vote for it here, and hopefully it will get turned into a shirt! And if you REALLY like it, giving a score of 5 is, of course, extra appreciated! Thanks to everyone who votes, and to everybody who helped my previous Threadless design get printed.

Last night was the premier of Trace Around Your Heart, a film made by my pals and fellow Brainwrap crew. It's about the struggles of Trace Cherokee, a washed up country singer (and puppet) who must revisit a past romance.
I designed the logo for the film as well as these posters used to promote last night's showing, which was a complete success. There was a great turnout and a huge response; lots of laughs from the audience and plenty of fanfare at the end. And it was well deserved, as everyone who worked on the film did an absolutely amazing job. The final product is an extremely funny and well-put together movie. I'm always blown away by the quality and quantity of the work the Brainwrap crew put into these projects.
ALSO! If you're in the Huntington WV area then you're in luck, because tonight at 7:25 PM at the Keith Albee theater, Trace will be performing a LIVE concert. Now when's the last time you saw a puppet play his country hits in a beautifully restored, 100 year old theater?
Here's the Trace Around Your Heart trailer:

This is one of my three pieces for Gallery 1988's Is This Thing On: Saturday Night Live art show. The theme of the show was kept under wraps until the gallery doors opened, which was a pretty cool idea and also why I'm just now sharing the images with you!
I still watch and love SNL every week, and if you do as well then you will recognize this piece as a tribute to Stefan, Bill Hader's Weekend Update character who has become a fan favorite.

I chose to draw Tom and Summer from 500 Days of Summer. I hadn't seen the movie since it was in theaters, but I caught it on TV just a few weeks ago and was reminded of just how great it is. Like most guys I'm not usually a big romance flick person, but every once in a while you'll find one that's not only told in a creative way, but also really resonates with anyone who has had 'real' relationships. By that I mean that most Hollywood romances are either super lovey-dovey, love-at-first-site-we're-meant-to-be-so-I'll-interupt-a-wedding-at-the-last-minute type movies, or one where there's an exaggerated stereotype of a jerk who is obviously the one you're supposed to be rooting against.
And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to have an excuse to draw Zooey Deschanel. Though I drew Joseph Gordon-Levitt too, who is big with the ladies right now.
Collider.com has an article about the show where you can see a preview of some the work, as does /Film
