The Ghoul Goes West


Hope you've been well. First and foremost; sorry for the extended radio silence. A lot has happened since I last posted on here. I moved back to Philadelphia, we got Phantom Hand up and running again with residence at Jinxed and our first exhibition in less than a month from now, sent out a mailer, and have enough upcoming art-shows to keep me busy for a long while.

The following are details of doodles and inked pages that I'm still classifying as brain-storming for the aforementioned first Phantom Hand show back in action, The Dead Cats of Civilization.

I don't want to talk about this too much because I'm still not sure what I'm gonna end up taking to finish and putting up on the wall. I've been working on maps, religion, and the post office. Regardless of  what I end up squeezing out, this is going to be a tremendous show containing 35 of my favorite Philadelphia artists.

 Following this exhibition is Last Meal, with Group Therapy and others close on it's heels (and Halloween on the horizon!). Between that and hopefully some illustration work stemming from the mailer, this blog should be hot with activity going forward.

"I've done enough for it to give me the indisputable right to lay it, 
if I choose, for an everlasting rest in the dust-bin of progress, 
amongst all the sweepings and, figuratively speaking, 
all the dead cats of civilization."
                                                             -Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Phantom Hand presents an exhibition of the antiquated and obsolete. This collection will pay tribute to occupations, tools and practices now relegated to the 'dust-bin of progress'.
