For those of you following my last few posts on Instagram and Facebook working on this piece, here it is done (finally). Sorry about the watermark, but I've been experiencing some bootlegging lately. This will be expertly screenprinted in 6 colors on really nice French paper within the next couple weeks by the homies at Zink Screenprinting in Oswego, as the first part of a local artist exclusive print series they're starting up. For anyone interested in buying a print, I've set up a pre-order in my webstore at 1000styles.bigcartel.com (or link to right). I won't have many of them (less than 20) - if you want one, don't wait on it. I'll post photos of the screening process and finished prints as soon as I can. Hope you like it, I put a lot of time and myself into this one.

I've been a fan of Renonelab's Fucked Up Kids trading cards series for a while now, finally got a chance to be part of it and do one of my own. My Rockbottom Randy art is below. There are a ton of talented artists is this series, if you're an 80s kid like me who had the original Garbage Pail Kids back in the day, these FUK cards are the shit. This current series 5 is now available to pre-order at renonelab.storenvy.com and not only that, anyone ordering 3 packs of cards or more will get a FREE lapel pin version of my card!! Lance at Renonelab is only doing the lapel pin treatment for my card, couldn't be more stoked about this. I'll eventually have some of the lapel pins available in my webstore as well, once the cards are produced and released. Go get some!

I think I forgot to post this one. It's a t-shirt graphic done for last summer's UK Download Fest. Unfortunately never got printed. Woulda been nice to see it in print. Oh well --

I was lucky enough to score a commission recently to do some art for Iron Invasion, a big midwest hotrod and bike show held annually in Woodstock, Illinois. Too far away for me to go to unfortunately, but I'm happy to settle on doing some art for the event. This art will appear on t-shirts and a big banner at the event, and maybe some other stuff too if they decide to do so. Thanks to John Wells for hooking this up for me, I love doing stuff like this. You can keep up with the event at their Facebook page.

Did this recently as part of the Tidwell/Landyachtz Skateboard Art project, more details about which can be found here. This will soon be published with many others by Last Gasp as a big coffeetable book or some shit like that. Super stoked to be a part of this.

This set is the result of a creative collaboration between myself and Portland's street art maniac RX SKULLS. We started with his trademark skull image and then I modified it a bit with exposed brain, then I added the body and projectile teeth before handing off the art back to RX for him to screen. This set includes one two-color hand-screened 8x10" print in black and metallic gold on nice thick ivory paper, one sheet (approx 8x10") of die-cut, two-color, hand-screened stickers, plus four additional RX SKULLS and 1000STYLES stickers. Limited to just 22 sets between the two of us, prints are signed and numbered by RX and myself. Available in the SHOP.

Been a while - gonna try and keep up on this better. I'm going to post a bunch of recent work, not necessarily in chronological order. Here goes! And by the way, I deactivated my facebook artist page to concentrate more on this blog and my Instagram (@1000styles) - too many places to update. Here's my Ol' Dirty Bart character - available on t-shirts and stickers, check my shop for details:

I got the opportunity to do this t-shirt graphic for Strong Hearts Cafe here in Syracuse, I think it turned out pretty sweet. Rumor has it it will be available at the cafe soon, and they may even have some limited prints made too. This was a ton of fun. Thanks Joel!

Been a while since I've updated, I know. I'll add some new art soon. In the meantime, check out this interview I just got over at Sticker Robot's blog: Ten Questions with 1000STYLES! You can even score one of my Malted Mickey stickers, FREE - details in the interview. Don't forget, my Instagram (@1000styles) and artist page on Facebook are the best way to stay up to date on my art (do people even visit normal websites anymore?).

Been a while since I've updated this blog! If you're interested in my work, follow me on Instagram (@1000STYLES) or on Facebook (facebook.com/thousandstyles) for more frequent updates, I tend to post there before anywhere else. I'll get this site/blog up to date soon, I hope, but in the meantime, here's a recent project. I got to do this t-shirt graphic for the Teenage Time Killers, who are some kind of crazy million-member supergroup including members of like 30 different bands like Lamb of God, Corrosion of Conformity, Slipknot, Foo Fighters, etc. It's a pretty big project. They have an album coming out July 31, can't wait to hear it. This was a fun graphic to do, I'd definitely like to do more like this!

Finally made the jump to vinyl die-cut stickers. Got some done of the little minion I did - thanks to Bryan at Rockin' Stickers for hooking it up just right. They're available in my webstore for only two bucks. Go check 'em out and pick up a couple!

Got a chance today to shoot some photos of this piece I did recently for the Deck the Halls all-skate-deck art show at the SALTQuarters Gallery here in Syracuse. This piece is now sold and it's gonna be hard to let go of it, but I guess that's just all the more reason to get into the next one! I decided against trying to scan it because of the curvature of the board, so I tried to get some good photos instead. Here's the shot of the whole thing followed by some closeups. Lighting isn't optimal, even though I was outside (in single-digit temperatures, no less) when I shot it, but you get the idea. It does look better in person, but what are you gonna do. I'll take what I can get, I'm no pro photographer. Hope you dig it.
