My first art book in over 6 years is all done and it’s going up for pre-sale THIS MONDAY, MAY 6th at 10AM PST in two editions (Standard and Variant cover). This latest collection is a WonderTwins of sorts, a 2-for-one, featuring BOTH my collection of “BRIGHTMARE” paintings in full color (along with some short stories), as well as my collection of “DEAD-LINE” black and white drawings. Inspired by the idea of taking random mix tapes, hand-made zines, and happy children’s books, dump them in a blender, puree them on high, and then pour them all over the depths of my darkest nightmares, this new book is packed with over a hundred illustrations, most of which have not been published in my previous books. Also contained between the pages are some of my random short stories and monologues that have accompanied some of my characters and paintings over the years. I always loved adding an element of storytelling to my work, and with this book, I can finally showcase that additional layer to my world of weird-looking brightmares and downtrodden outcasts.
Included amongst the art and detailed close-ups of my messes, are a few stories revolving around mysticism, the vietnam war, smurfs, child abuse, superheroes, nightmares, and a maniac who steals your skin. You know, kids stuff. It’s the first time that I have included some of my writing to go along with the art so it’s pretty exciting I’m also self-publishing it this time, which means I depend on your support more than ever (but you’ve been pretty damn good to me so far so thank you!
The first half of the book is all in full color, then flip it over, and you have an entirely different book, all in black and white. 2 books in one!
Anyway, keep scrolling for details on BOTH editions of the book (they are the same on the inside FYI) and I will see you MONDAY MAY 6th AT 10AM PST EXCLUSIVELY ON MY SITE!!
