I’ve been invited to participate in the MINTcondition show at Ltd. Art Gallery next month, a comic book-themed show to coincide with the Emerald City Comic Con. It’s going to be an awesome show, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what the other artists come up with!
I figured I’d share here some shots of the piece that I will be submitting:
13″x19″ Giclee printed on 250gsm Arches Velin Museum Rag
I’m excited to announce the release of two prints in my new series, Travel Middle Earth! Inspired by vintage travel posters, these first prints hint at the splendor Middle Earth has to offer.
They are now available at my print store.
Both images are 8-color screen prints on Rives BFK, White Sheet, 250gsm paper. The dimensions are as follows (including the white border):
Argonath State Park- 15″x20″
Each print is limited to 100, hand-signed & numbered.
The first set from my collaborative series of Star Wars ships is done! My dad, Will Anderson, did the line drawings, and I did the rendering/page design (check out some of my dad’s other work here). We’re currently working on the Imperial ships, so keep an eye out for those in the near-ish future!
All prints are 12″x18″ and printed on high-quality lustre paper. Prints are hand-numbered and limited to 150 (except for the Republic Y-Wing variant, which is limited to 75).
Prints are available on my print store page.

UPDATE: Prints are now available on my print store!
This month, over at Planet Pulp, the monthly theme is Tim Burton, and the other artists have really been knocking it out of the park! (Seriously, go check it out, here’s the link again.) I really wanted to get in on the action, so I put together an homage to Burton’s first feature film: Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. I hadn’t seen it in years, so I watched it while I was working on the piece, and it is hilarious! I really liked it as a kid, but I totally didn’t get it. Well, I suppose I “got” the stuff aimed at kids, but I had no idea there was another level of humor beyond a silly man in a silly suit and a silly voice. This piece took me a bit longer than I’d anticipated (bikes are really hard to draw), but it was a LOT of fun!
In an effort to increase awareness of my work, I’ve created a Facebook page specifically for my illustrations and posters. Please go there and Like it to follow me and get updates. I’ve got a lot of stuff coming up that I’m excited to share with everyone!
In my last blog post, I teased an image I’ve been working on for Bottleneck Gallery‘s next show, and now I can show you the whole thing. The theme of the show is “The Gang’s All Here,” and the artists have been invited to showcase ”their favorite classic batch of friends, pulling from songs, films, and books.” A huge part of my inspiration as an artist has come from the classic cartoons of the 80′s I grew up watching, so I wanted to do an homage to a few of my favorites. Prints will be available once the show opens on November 9.

Hey, everybody, you may have noticed that things have been pretty quiet on the ol’ blog. I’ve been really busy with a bunch of stuff that I hope to be revealing in the not-too-distant future. I’ve got several new series of prints in the works, and a couple of gallery shows for which I’m preparing.
In fact, one of those gallery shows will be at the Bottleneck Gallery in a couple of months. The theme hasn’t been announced on their site yet, so I won’t spoil it, but I’ll share a spoiler-free sneak peek here (it’s more of a clue regarding what my piece features and not an indication of the overall theme of the show).
Thanks, everyone, for your overwhelming interest in these Star Wars Spaghetti Western posters! I made these mostly for myself, because I thought it would be fun to do. Not only were they fun to make, but it’s been a great deal of fun seeing the enthusiasm so many of you have for the elements I mashed together in this series. Thanks for all of your support and kind words.
Because of the overwhelming response, I very quickly sold out of the first run of 50 prints. In fact, I’m just now catching up with the very unexpected demand! So many people have been asking about a second edition that I wanted to get these back out there as soon as I could. Instead of just reprinting the same images, however, I thought a second edition might be a fun opportunity to make some tweaks I was considering the first time around.
I’m often torn between several different ideas as I put the finishing touches on an image: font color, costume coloration, things like that. I wind up deciding one way or another, but I often wonder if the other choices were the “right” ones instead. So in this second edition, I’ve made tweaks to such finishing touches, to help this edition stand out a little from the first, and to quiet that nagging voice that keeps telling me that I should have gone with the other font color, haha. The changes are subtle, but I think they help set these images apart from the first edition just a little bit.
These are now available on my Print Store page.
I’m working on importing all of my Blogger stuff to this new blog, and it should all be working soon!
