Check out the art I did of the HAIM sisters for Consequence of Sound’s 2013 “Rookie of the Year" in music pick. Their debut album Days Are Gone is amazing.
A tribute to the energy of the album and the play of light and foliage in 80s and 90s South Floridian commercial architecture. Watercolors.
NEW DUNGEONS & DORITOS! Our Prologue to Book 3 concludes - recapping our adventures to date and setting in motion the next adventure!
Nasa has announced plans to grow plants on the moon by 2015 in a project designed to further humanityâs chances of successfully colonising space.
I’ve been kicking around some thoughts about humans and plants in the future. This article, combined with things like a scene in the comic Letter 44 where an astronaut on a long-voyage mission is talking to his hydroponic plants has given me pause to consider how space travel might shape human-plant relations.
For the foreseeable path of true interstellar journeys (if we’re traveling in ships) plants will be very important. Gardener and botanists will be as important as rocket scientists and space marines. Existing in a place like Earth it’s easy to take for granted our symbiosis with plants, but in those contained spaces they become not just important, but one of the most real things there is. More real than people, to some.
Much like how I feel that the future might hold a closer bond to animals as we grow to understand them better and even communicate with them more directly, the symbiotic relationship humans have with plants might become something more focused. As we place more intelligence in artificial creations - talking teddy bears and limited A.I. in virtual spaces - the collective consciousness might place some of that imaginary connection on plants should the bond become closer. A plant you’re growing up with in a spacecraft might be as meaningful as the A.I. of your teddy bear, even your own hand if you exist in virtual spaces more than corporeal. Genetically engineered plants that respond to human needs such as security and other home-based day-to-day functions could make this connection even more likely.
Plants growing on our clothing, hybridizing human and plant in a genetic makeover - as common as technological augmentations, perceived psychic bonds whether they exist or not, worship as a last tether to the earth we once came from, and fascinating sexual practices - most likely with plants engineered specifically for that… Many possibilities as the human condition and psyche continue to transmute.

NEW DUNGEONS & DORITOS! A Prologue to our new season!
If you’ve never checked out D&D before, now’s the time to jump in! Barty is DRUNK (for real) & recounting the story so far.
The man who made this illustration passed away today. Hiro Isono, the man who created promotional illustrations for the Secret of Mana games (including this one and this one), did something that not many artists working for video game companies can do: Rather than just drawing from the game itself, he envisioned the essence of the it, that spirit of adventure and all that, and in doing so he created an entryway into a colorful, new world. It helps that these games had a big impact on me, but I actually think the art stands up on its own. Why else make art than to dream up something up that doesn’t already exist in real life and make the viewer wish so badly that it were real?
Some of the greatest video game art of all time.
check out this track from my solo album, THE TRESSER, which drops next week! lord a mercy, ho-lee shit.
