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.

I was listening to the Misfits a couple nights ago and Death Comes Ripping came on. I put this illustration together, the song always reminded me of some kind of a winged death swooping down. I put the design up on my shop. You can buy it on all kinds of things like pillows/shirts etc. There is also FREE SHIPPING until August 10th at midnight!
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.
Can’t stop, won’t stop…
Yet another skull painting on wood block.

A pink skull painting I did on a block of carved wood.
It was a gift for one of my wife’s friends.
Real quick Doodle!
Doodled this at work today on a piece of scrap paper, colored in Photoshop.
Besides that shameless self promotion I also finished the fiend skull I had been working on.
I couldn’t get my scanner to pick it up the way I wanted. I think because I already clear coated it with an acrylic spray.
1 more day to go!
Pretzels hurt my stomach so much, it stinks cause they are one of my favorite things to eat.
I’ve been drawing/painting a lot of skulls lately, here is one I finished painting a couple days ago.
