Got a chance to throw up the Blood Money skull at Sto’s Old City Beer Garden in Old City Philly yesterday. Been 16 years since I picked up a spray can but I’m happy with the end result.
Here are a couple pics I found on Instagram of people chilling in front of the piece:
Also, since I always love when other artists post their #WIP shots I will as well:
I want to do more of this kind of stuff now, anyone have a blank wall I could borrow?
Samuel Adams just released a new beer called Fresh as Helles and it looks eerily similar to my illustration for Conshohocken Brewing Company I did over a year ago. Here is the new Sam Adams beer:
My friends who brought it to my attention swear its a total rip off, I myself don’t really have an opinion. It seems super strange to me and I certainly feel that the design/art is not Fresh as Hell, but thats about it. I mean, it could be that someone got the idea from my illustration or it could be that someone just had a similar idea roughly a year after Blood Money came out, no way to really ever know. Either way, the Universe is strange.
Either way, Blood Money is coming back out real soon and I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of that super tasty juice!!! I’m gonna try Fresh as Helles as soon as I see it around as well.

Greyboy’s in Havertown has a bunch of my artwork for sale. All these skulls are actually gone already, a long time ago. But there are a ton more to chose from at the shop! (I didn’t post the stuff I have at the shop because I have posted all of it as I completed it on this page anyway).

Go check out the shop, its an awesome place with a ton of great stuff for sale.
It’s almost Halloween! Well, a month away… but still, close enough. My wife wanted me to cut a Jack-o-lantern but she wanted something different. She said “Hey, how about the Misfits Fiend Skull?”. Now, I knew this was impossible because you can’t make it as a one piece stencil so how could you cut a pumpkin into the Fiend Skull???
Well, I decided it was going to happen no matter what. I said “Yeah, sure…no problem!” She went and got me a foam pumpkin from AC Moore while I sat at home trying to figure how I was going to pull this one off.
Well… I’m happy to say it all worked out in the end. Below you will find the finished product.
It was actually a lot easier than I expected it to be. I suspended the nose on a piece of brake line for a car. I cut the brake line down to size and suspended the nose on it. I originally thought I would also have to suspend the brake line or create a bracket underneath in a T shape, but since the brake line and foam nose are both so lightweight just attaching it to the back and securing it was enough. I think it turned out pretty rad if I do say so myself.
I know I don’t normally post crafts on this blog (though I do make them quite regularly), but I felt that this really fits the theme of this site quite nicely.
While I’m posting crafts I might as well post something else that I recently made for my house. Below you will find our new door mat.
I stole the idea from Fat Mike though! I saw it while my wife and I were watching The Other F Word on Netflix Instant streaming. It’s a pretty fun documentary if your in to the whole punk rock thing. Anyway, thanks for checking out my stuff! See you next time!
Two new things I did in the past week. I had an old skateboard laying around so I cut it in half and made both of these. I was really happy with the cuts, I used a table saw and then sanded down the edges. Death Comes Ripping is the name of a Misfits song. Hotel Bella Muerte is just something I thought up, kinda sounds like Hotel California.
