New Work for Rothick's Anniversary Show

Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim has so graciously invited me to participate in their anniversary show opening Saturday, July 14 and running through August 4, 2012 This piece was started in January and abandoned shortly after I cut all the wood. As I am the original Last-minute-Larry (Larry is my real name.) the varnish was poured on this morning and I'm about to drive it to the gallery NOW. Naturally, these photos are from my phone and there's a ton of glare from my obsessive over-varnishing. Maybe I'll talk somebody into taking a real photo for me. Or you'll just have to come check it out in person.
"I Will Ruin This" Acrylic, wood, polymer clay, gold leaf, velvet. 8"x14"x2"
Rothick Art Haus Anniversary Show Opening reception: Saturday July 14, 2012 7-10 PM 170 S. Harbor Blvd., Anaheim, CA 92805

BLACKED OUT: a one night only event featuring artwork inspired by Phantom Fuse, the newest generation of Hurley's 4-time SIMA Award-winning board shorts. Sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon, with a live performance from Wounded Lion. Over 40 amazing artists created work in the limited color palette of Hurley's newest super-scientific-fantastic board shorts: black + one color. Participating artists included Seonna Hong, Gary Baseman, Brandi Milne, Natalia Fabia, Vizie, Pose, Caroline Hwang, Nancy Chiu, Kelsey Short, Jason Maloney, Pixxelporn, Dalek, C.R. Stecyk III, Stink, Souther Salazar...(I'm getting tired. you get the idea.) Super secret confession: I work for Hurley and organized this event. How could I not sneak in a piece of my own? Here it is.

Long Beach Zombie Walk

I was very happy to be invited to participate in the art show affiliated with the Long Beach Zombie Walk in 2011. As doing things in a timely fashion has never been one of my strong points....I'm just posting my piece for that now. Relax.
