"Time and Space"

As some of you know from one of my earlier prints, I’ve been a Doctor Who fan since the ‘80’s. The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is less than a month away and I can’t wait!

Taking inspiration from one of my favorite comic book creators, what had started out as some random doodles while I was reading a Jack Kirby book, quickly blossomed into the TARDIS print.

"Time and Space", hand-printed edition of 90, 18"x24" $40

Available October 29th starting at 7 pm EST., via our store.

My son is following in my footsteps… I couldn’t be more proud of him. At 7 years old he knows what he wants, and that is some extra spending money for his summer vacation. With a little help from me, guiding him as he printed, we worked together to make this 4 color art print come to life. Daddy and me time at its best!

"Yellow Cat"

$10.00 each, plus shipping.

4 color print on 80# cardsock.
Size is: 11” x 14”“
Edition of 65
Signed and numbered by the artist

I created and donated this print to be used as a fund raiser to benefit the renovation of the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, FL.  Built in 1921, the Capitol is one of Florida’s oldest operating theaters.

There were 100 pieces printed.  Out of those 100, I was given 25 “artist copies” for me to sell to recoup my printing and production costs.  The Capitol Theatre will receive 75 prints in all.

The first 25 people to arrive this Sunday at the screening of the 1985 classic, The Goonies, will receive a free copy of my Never Say Die! print.  The remaining 50 are to be sold by the Capitol Theatre to raise funds to help with the renovation.

My 25 artist copies will be put up for sale soon at the tinybirdpress webstore.

Notes:

- Hand-pulled screen print 
- 18″ x 24″ on 100lb tea-stained paper 
- Printed with water based non-toxic inks 
- Signed and numbered, limited edition of 100
- Each print was hand-embellished.  Because they are stained by hand, each one is totally unique

If you’re in the Tampa Bay area, swing by the theatre this Sunday.

Here’s their website: atthecap.com

The movie starts at 3pm.  I know I’ll be there and I’d love to meet you!

After getting married (15 years ago) my wife and I left Chicago and moved out to Phoenix, Arizona for a few years. We’ve crisscrossed the country a few more times since then, but my heart has always remained in Arizona.

Over the past year or two, I had been kicking around an idea to do an Arizona-themed print, but it was while I was researching my favorite 1930’s advertising illustrator, Vernon Grant, that I came up with the idea for this print. (Vernon is best known for his creation of the characters Snap, Crackle and Pop for Kellogg’s.)

It’s both an homage to the genius of Vernon’s amazing artwork and also to the southwest landscape of Arizona, one of the places I love best in the world.

This is my latest hand-pulled screen print, “firefly girl”.

Fireflies. Lightning Bugs. Glow worms, etc… Different names, depending on which region of the country you grew up in, but they all meant the same thing.

Growing up in Chicago, June and July meant the lightning bugs were back! At night my friends and I used to catch them and put as many as possible into jars. We’d almost always release them before our parents called us in for the night. Unfortunately, since moving to Florida, we don’t have lightning bugs around here. My kids had never seen a lightning bug and hadn’t experienced the fun of chasing and catching them. That is, until last year, when my daughter went up to Illinois to visit her grandparents for a couple weeks. She went in June and got to experience the thrill first hand. This print is a depiction of my daughter’s first experience with catching and releasing fireflies.

The nitty gritty:

The print is 18” x 24” in size.
Glow-in-the-dark ink.
The edition size is 40 pcs.
Signed and numbered

$25.00 + shipping SOLD OUT!

Available tonight, after 5pm in the Tiny Bird Press webstore.

One of my collectors sent me a photo of my Rosie the Riveter print he bought, all framed up.  I love the rivet treatment on the frame.  Looks GORGEOUS!

the Remember When series - “One Small Step” - SOLD OUT

I have always been a huge fan of the “space race era” and space exploration in general.  I had wanted to create a print that captured the feeling of awe and wonder that we Americans shared back on that night in 1969. When it was broadcast live on TV that man had first set foot on the moon.

I was getting ready to print last week when I heard that Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos had found the Apollo 11 booster rockets and was planning to recover them.  I couldn’t believe that the timing of his announcement coincided with my latest art print. I’m glad that private individuals like Bezos are able to pick up the mantle held by NASA for so long and continue to try and explore space.  

I hope that future generations can feel that same sense of awe and wonder and be inspired as I have been.

In honor of Women’s History month, I wanted to create an art print of an American icon symbolizing strong women. One who epitomizes the hard-working, patriotic women from the greatest generation.


I have been wanting to do this print for a long time. I’ve been slowly working on the drawing for this print and for a sister print, for about two years. Rosie and the dedicated women like her and the contribution they made to the war effort have always held a special place in my heart. They helped build the bombers, which as a child, I became obsessed with. Now that I’m grown, their sacrifices have strongly influenced my artwork. As seen in my B-17 nose art bomber panel series. I can’t think of a more perfect icon that symbolizes the true American spirit, which my daughter can look up to and I can have proudly hanging in my own home. I hope you enjoy her as much as I have.


A tribute, to Rosie the riveter.

These are designed, illustrated and hand-printed by myself.
