I was lucky enough to be able to do a t-shirt graphic recently for the almighty METALLICA. Like a lot of people, I've consistently listened to and loved Metallica since grade school, so this is definitely a bucket list job for me. This was done for a handful of shows the band is playing in Copenhagen (thus the scandinavian influence). Hope it sells well, I'd obviously love to do more work for this band.

Did this skate deck graphic for Positive Charge Skateboards as a signature deck for legendary skater Jesse Martinez out of Venice CA. Positive Charge is doing lots of great things and not just slinging skateboards - go check out their stuff.

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!
