Musical selection for the evening. I’m sure the dishes would get done much faster if I wasn’t constantly stopping to play air guitar… #theDamned

Friday Flashback. 1998. Home page for one of my first websites. Back when everybody in the gigposter and Chicago nightclub scene only knew me as “Trucker”. Awesome “Darlene ” trunk stop waitress image, drawn specifically for me by my bud comic book legend Mike Wieringo, R.I.P. #ffb #gigposters #wieringo

tinybirdpress:

"Space Patrol"

One night I was spending some quality time with my older son, sketching rockets and robots. We had such a great time together. The idea for this art print was born that night.
My vision for this art print was to make retro propaganda-style print using the rocket I had sketched with my son. A piece that hearkened back to early science fiction serials. Ones like Tom Corbett - Space Cadet, Captain Video, Buck Rogers, etc…

•Hand-printed serigraph
•18″ x 24″ on 100# French Speckletone paper

•Printed with water based, non-toxic ink
•Signed and numbered edition of 50
