Before I headed out to Charm City to stalk out John Waters and indulge myself in Tasty Kakes, I recently did a private commission where the themes were centralized over the purchaser's history with the Rio Grande river in the state of Texas. I incorporated a Hokusai tribute element by borrowing his style of waves. This was done as a diptych. I decided not to upload the sliced piece because it would only look good through 2 frames, which I did not have available at the time I shipped the finished project. This piece was done using Canson Artist Series Classic Cream drawing paper, Faber Castell sepia pens, and a Staedler B pencil.

This is gonna be a rager of a night! Please come!
Update: due to some asshole at the bar making a false report to the Chicago PD about a member of the audience having a gun, the show was unfortunately shut down during Dresden's set. Luckily, the show was saved by a promoter who helped moved the show to Memories. Fuck that guy and fuck the Chicago PD!

Amber Asylum serenades us with DOOM.
Music blog Crustcake have been recently running some of my (crappy) photography recently. Check their articles out here and here.
By the way, did I mention that I saw YOB twice in the same day?

Unlike a lot of squares who ventured forth to the juiced up wastelands of Florida to get their spring break on, I hopped on a plane to Austin, Texas for my first ever South By Southwest. I got to see a staggering 43 (!) bands during the course of 4 days with a few multiples. Judging by the amazing bands that I saw live, such as Yob (who I saw twice on the same day), St. Vitus (who I saw for the first time), Pentagram, Eyehategod, Kvelertak, The Secret, and more, it was the next best thing to being in the Netherlands for Roadburn. Got to meet some awesome people. Tried new food. I even got to try some good ol' Texas barbeque. Cheers to Will for the hospitality, as well as Andy and Van of Crustcake for being such awesome tour guides! And folks, please tip (Grim) Kim well as she sells merch on the Metalliance tour.
Pics of South By Southwest, as well as some visits to some sites in Austin, here.
No juicy details to be spilled, because what happens in Austin, stays in Austin!

"For those of you who haven't heard, it is with great sadness to tell you
that my great friend and Extreme Noise Terror bandmate, Phil Vane passed away in
his sleep last Thursday. After spending months at a time on the road with him on
the ENT tours, I saw nothing but a good, honest man. Gonna miss him."

1) 2011 is the year is the year of the metal rabbit, which I gave a black metal treatment. Not inspired by Donny Darko.
2)My Chinese astrological symbol, the metal rooster (or cock, if you prefer), also given a black metal treatment. Not to be confused with Abraxas, the Gnostic deity.
Sketches were done with a BIC, then the outlines and fills were done with Faber Castell 4 PITT.
