RIP Best Show On WFMU

Tonight is sadly the last episode of The Best Show On WFMU. Here's an illustration I did way back in 2007 for Baltimore Citypaper of Newbridge rock star Corey Harris of Mother 13.

I Am Philly

New work for I Am Philly, a new Philadelphia events guide - currently on Facebook but gearing up to a full on website. Check out the details for nods to the Festival de San Mateo (if you've ever seen an awesome Mexican parade go up your street in South Philly with guys in giant costumes including paper mache pope hats and fake beards that's what it is) and local noise-rock outfit Heathen Reign playing next to the vegan ice cream stand.

Always awesome to contribute to this show. I think I've finally gotten my post-it technique down too. I went for it and did almost 20 this year. Basketball and Breakfast. I'll post the rest after the opening this weekend. Thanks to Brad Wallace for the NBA consultation and also the proud owner of the above James Harden jawn.

I don't know the exact numbers but this show has thousands of post-its from hundreds of artists, heavy on the comics & illustration all for only 25 BUCKS A PIECE. I'm dying to get out to this thing one year.

Check out curator Mark Todd or hashtag #postitshow on instagram to check out what other people are doing, or if you are anywhere close to LA go see the show Saturday!

Column header for a new Willamette Week column about Oregon's coming legal/sort of legal/medical/etc cannibis industry. 

I learned all about "trichomes", listened to lots of jungle and looked at hundreds of photos of "Old School Pure Kush".

Philly Phanatic For Philadelphia Magazine

For Philadelphia Magazine. Article / rant about the overuse of "PH" for EVERY SINGLE thing in Philadelphia. Also the Phanatic is awesome to draw. If you didn't know he has a Japanese cousin "Slyly the Hiroshima Carp".

Poutine For Adirondack Life

Recent one for an article about Poutine in the "North Country" region for Adirondack Life magazine. Being close to Canada they have some legit stuff up there ranging from traditional (real cheese curds and hand cut fries) to gourmet versions cheffed up with chunks of brisket, porcini gravy, or octopus. Thanks to Kelly Hofschneider and Niki Kourofsky for another cool job.

Philadelphia Newsstand Drawings

Recently scanned these from last month's show at B2. They are also all for sale on my website. Enjoy! This one's on Oregon Avenue in South Philly.

On the east side of City Hall, on Market St. Stocked to the gills.

Sort of made up from photos of a few different lunch carts. I'm semi obsessed with the new crop of "halal nyc gyro heathy rice combo" carts popping up here.

Broad & Oregon. Not actually called "Mike's" and maybe not really 24 hours but I've never seen it closed.

Graffiti'ed stand on 16th near JFK or Market. This was the one that made me want to draw a bunch of newsstands. 

Across from Reading Terminal, sells mostly old X-men comics. "No Tobacco Products".

East side of Broad & Tasker. The guy wears the same Pink Floyd shirt every day. Also lots of lotto "dream books".

Next to Oregon Diner and the Asian Market. (best asian market in South Philly by the way. Also has a pho place and banh mi.)

Here's a bunch or reference photos, including some I never got around to drawing….

Off Campus Guide for Willamette Week

Recently Willamette Week in Portland asked me to do a whole mess of illustrations for their Off Campus student guide. Best thrift stores, hookah bars, coffee shops, cheap eats, basement shows. 

Also how to throw a keg party and not end up living in a van & working at a donut store after you graduate. Fun stuff. Huge thanks to the art department at Wweek for always giving me awesome things to draw.

Hot Diggity Baja Jake Dog

Quick wood painting for a Hot Diggity Kickstarter supporter. 

Also was their "dog of the month" a while back and has been featured on the HD2 cart. Nice one with jicama, salsa verde, tortilla strips and queso fresco.
