The awesome Overflow Magazine here in Brooklyn not only sent the wonderfully talented (and weird) Dale Eisinger over to do a fantastic article, but they also gave me the cover. hooray! I LOVE THIS MAGAZINE. Denizens of Brooklyn, look for it at all your local shops, bars, restaurants, hair salons, etc. (it’s everywhere, and it’s free)

When Alex Battles asked me to do a big ol’ painting of Johnny Cash for the upcoming annual Johnny Cash Birthday Bash, all I could say was HELL YES. Not only is this annual show one of the best parties of the year, but you haven’t lived until you’ve seen the Whisky Rebellion tear through “Big River”.
I had a big roll of canvas that was the perfect size for this backdrop, which is a whopping 107″ wide by 70″ tall:
I can’t begin to say how much fun I had with this. The work went quickly and methodically, with a minimum of hair-pulling. I completed the entire thing in seven days.
I’m also going to be selling prints at the shows:
I did a limited edition of 50. Each print is 16″x20″, signed and numbered. If you want one, but can’t make the shows, email me and I will hook you up.
