New for summer '09: Hobbit sandals! I was standing behind this girl in line @ Kinko's & wondering whether she actually thought they looked good or just saw them in some fashion mag & didn't want to be left out of the next trend. I felt a little bad for her. Still, I'll bet she's the cutest girl in The Shire.

Got the teaser flyers for Oct printed up. Promotional push begins now. Let the whoring begin!

More Details On The Show

After a long bartending shift last night, I slept in this morning, something I rarely get to do with a hyper active dog in the apt, but The Mick was generous and let me sleep till noon after getting to bed @ 4:30. So, no painting got done as I spent much of the day cooking, cleaning, gloating over David Ortiz's outing as a 'roid user, and - oh yeah - the flyer for my art show:

That's right, complimentary food, wine, and beer. I still have to pick a food menu, but the beers will most likely be Guinness, Yuengling, and Long Trail Pale Ale. Hey, when I throw a party I don't skimp.

If you're not following along on twitter yet or a fan on facebook, please do so, and keep checking back for more updates as I keep right on rolling toward this world-changing event.


More Tiger

Here's a bit more Tiger, as well as a peek into the rest of my apt.


Tiger Update No. 1

Here's what I managed to get done on that Tiger painting this afternoon in between apt. cleaning, laundry, and updating all my web crap. Off to Jamian's now to iron out all the details of the opening. Back with more later tonight.

First Public Show This Oct!

Just a quick post to get back on track here and let everyone know I finally booked my first public show @ Jamian's in Red Bank this Oct (here's more info on Jamian's gallery). My stuff will be hanging on the walls all month and will even include some new types of art you haven't seen from me before.

So, the next two months are going to be a bowlful of insanity as I try to get as much humanly possible done for this thing. Be sure to follow the madness here, on my twitter account, and on the official CM Studios facebook page.

Below are previews of some of the things I'm working on. There's the beginnings of a 24"x36" Tiger Woods painting and some sketches for a series of paintings I'm calling 'Retro-Action' that are my cartoony way of expressing my love for mid-20th century pop culture, from B-movies to film noir to comic books and more.

And, yes, there's also a picture of 2 stick figures fucking.

Don't ask.

So, enjoy, kids! The next 2 months the artwork, blog posts, tweets and facebook updates will be coming fast and furious, and should be pretty damn entertaining as well. Bookmark these links and follow along as I head down the rabbit hole on the long journey to October.


Off The Grid

Heading underground for a week or two, but I'll be back with new visions of fantatical wonderment! Until then, enjoy the nice weather, kids!
