When I’m not making stuff, I am playing drums. I’m looking to move out soon, and I’m going to need an electronic drumset to support my habit. Good Lord, I want this Swedish electronic drumset.

Jesse Balmer’s work gets better every time I see it. I follow him on Tumblr, so I see his work every day. Jesse Balmer’s work gets better every day. The dude is a monster drawer and an inspiration.

Mark Todd was one of my teachers at Art Center and is just about the nicest guy ever. I was insanely excited to see the photos of his fireworks stand in development for his upcoming show at La Luz de Jesus gallery. Comic book-themed fireworks? Sign me up!
Gargamel is like the foreign exchange student you are in love with. I don’t understand anything that the Gargamel website is saying, but its photos are beautiful. I have not seen a finer manufacturer of vinyl toys. I hope one day to own them all.
I’ve been asked to be in a show happening this Saturday in Santa Monica. It’s a benefit for a group that buys Mosquito nets for people living in Africa. The show has an insane roster of talent, and should be a lot of fun. I made an edition of five sculpture-toys called PIFF (Portable Individual Force Field) Generators for the show. Each PIFF sold buys ten mosquito nets!
Have you ever wanted to eat someone’s soul so that you could take their powers? That’s how I feel about Dave Rapoza. The dude can paint, and his Ninja Turtle series is blowing up all over the internet because it is most excellent. Hopefully some executives will see these and launch a super gritty reboot of the TMNT franchise.
