Come on out for a beautiful weekend in Lowertown St Paul, and see why the Art Crawl is my favorite weekend of the year! 

... and speaking of the Zombie Pub Crawl, here is the poster I created for this years amazing event, plus the return of the official beer of the ZPC (and featuring my design), Brain Belt!

My Etsy and Big Cartel shops

Greetings everyone.

I've got a bunch of housecleaning and re-arranging scheduled for this summer. I will be closing this website's Store first, and then deciding between my Etsy store and the DWITT Market on which to keep so there is only ONE online outlet to buy work directly from me. There is of course another online source for a LOT of my print and poster work, and that is Nevermind Gallery. They have been, and continue to be, a big supporter of me and my work, so please shop there often!

I've also been breathing new life, and new regular work, into my DWITT Dailys comic blog. I invite you to check it out. 

Happy Summer Solstice everyone!

One week left to get my book funded

  Time is running out on getting my book funded on Kickstarter.  7 short days remain to reach my funding goal. Once we hit the $4,500 mark, the book WILL be made.  If we can get the $5,500 mark, I will expand the book to 104 pages. If we can get beyond that, I'll come up with some other method of making the book even better. Any level of funding will help, and I also need your help spreading the word about my book. Twitter, Facebook, share it with everyone. Thank you in advance, now, lets make a book!

The Growler

  There is a brand new magazine on the streets on the Twin Cities, and its all about BEER!  Brought to you by the minds behind the Beer Dabbler events, I am excited to tell you about the launch of The Growler. It's a FREE bi-monthly publication distributed throughout the Twin Cities to engage the beer enthusiast and inform the beer curious. I am deeply honored to be the cover artist for each issue, and I also contribute a new Louie The Loon cartoon in the back of each one.

In celebration of The Growler's release, all of my beer related prints in the DWITT Market are $5 off for the rest of the month of June. No coupon codes this time, the price is just marked down for all of you beer lovers out there. While supplies last.

Cheers!

Portraits Volume One

  Hello everyone!

  I am proud to announce my first Kickstarter campaign. "Portraits Volume One" is a book of art I want to make collecting work from my Portraits series of drawings. All the details are on the Kickstarter page, so I encourage you all to check it out, spread the word about this project, and ideally become a backer.  The more people that know about this, the better the chances of it happening, so please get the word out on your own networks if this is something you'd like to see exist in the world.

DWITT March/April newsletter
Merry Springtime everyone!

    April is loaded with events!

1) I am having a spring cleaning sale April 1st -3rd in my Etsy store and the DWITT Market. NOJOKE is the coupon code to get 25% off your entire order in both online shops. Some items will be additionally marked down from their usual price. Enjoy!

2) My studio will be open during April's Lowertown First Friday event on April 6th from 6-10pm. I'm in studio #411 of the JAX building. The $5 Scratch & Dent poster pile will be freshly stocked.

3) Occupying a great deal of my time is preparing for my first solo show in 4 years, titled 'Multifaceter' and opening on Friday, April 13th at Big Table Studio in downtown Saint Paul. A whole lot of new work will be on display, paintings drawings, and prints, plus the evening will feature a performance by my friend Ben Weaver. I hope to see a lot of you there.

4) the annual bike themed print show Artcrank opens on April 14th, and I will have a brand new print on display there as well. I am also going for the Artcrank record for most colors used in a print. I am hoping to pull off 15 colors.

5) Record Store Day is happening on April 21st, and a large celebration I am part of is happening at Hymie's Vintage Records at 3820 E Lake St. in MPLS. The party will feature a marching band, a dozen bands performing on stages indoors and out, a beer garden, and local artists, including myself, with tables displaying and selling their wares. Its free and will be enormously fun, so there is no excuse not to go and support a locally owned independent record store.

6) Finally, the Saint Paul Art Crawl is April 27-28-29, and I will be in my studio, #411 in the JAX bulding, for all three days. My wife Nikki's work will also be on display and for sale, along with my studio mate, Jeff Nelson, and his work

Thanks for reading this whirlwind schedule of events, and I look forward to seeing you out there!
