Hi! My name's Chris. I've lived in Los Angeles since 1995, when I came out here for grad school. I 'm originally from the north side of Columbus, OH.

I'm a creative writer and artist and have shown my work in galleries in Los Angeles. Check out my art here.

I've also written a graphic novel! You can check out some sample pages here.

I like graphic novels, Christmas, tide pools, grilled cheese sandwiches, reading, biker moustaches, dudes, football (Ohio State and the New Orleans Saints), sea monsters, painting, pine trees, bookstores, tennis, Chiddy Bang, going to the gym, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cricket Magazine, gloves with the fingers torn off, the "Gemini's Twin" sketch on Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, illustration, rugby players, Trina Schart Hyman, Stephen King, horror films, Hillary Clinton, film history and unexplained phenomena.

I blog about illustration, painting, Atari, Christmas, books, style...and things from my favorite era: the late 1970s/early 80s. As well as assorted other stuff!

CURRENTLY READING : Redeployment by Phil Klay

 

I went to a really great opening yesterday - at Richard Heller Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica — of collaborations between Canadian artists Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber. The pieces were so funny and endearing.
These images give you a taste of what their work is like. Check out www.richardhellergallery.com for more info.

Here’s Ravishing Rick Rude! I’m trying to decide whether to apply gloss or not. His chest is painted pretty thinly and it might make him pop out more. His trunks are actually dark blue and black because I took the first pic with a flash. I think I’ll leave the background as is - 8” by 10” wood panel.
