Death’s Head Hawkmoth

The death’s head hawkmoth is an ominous creature that has inspired many artists. It can be found across artistic genres from literature to  paintings to movies. This large moth can produce a loud, screeching sound.  Their yellow,  brown,  and black color patterns resemble  that of a honeybee, and they are often found invading beehives. The death’s head hawkmoth can omit the same scent as the queen bee to go undetected while feeding on honey. Its most notable feature is perhaps the human skull pattern found on the thorax.

I love drawing and painting moths. I’ve always been fascinated by moths, maybe because I’m a night owl. Even as a youngster, I often found myself staring at the pattens on their wings and watching them flutter erratically in the light.  Moths have become one of my favorite subjects to tattoo.

Thank you, Daniel and Kim, for getting my original designs!

The Hip Commute

Forest Stearns and I love making art. We like to smash our styles together and see what happens.  About a year ago we started creating animals on bikes.

At the moment, our art is on display at Alchemy Coffee Collective located at 1741 Alcatraz in Berkeley.  They have great coffee.

image

Check out our art. The show will be up until the end of July. Some pieces are still for sale.

Bring some cash,  and go home with some art and a caffeine buzz.

A Maiden’s Revenge

Here is a painting I made for a group show  titled “Death and the Maiden” in Chico, CA. The painting is on display at the 1078 Gallery until July 19th. My painting is titled “A Maiden’s Revenge”

image

My take on the theme is that the Maiden plays the role of death.  She has been betrayed and hurt. She seeks revenge on her abuser, guided by her death spirits to give her strength, a clear path, and the power to kill.

The Maiden has completed her task. She is proud of her kill and puts her trophy on display.

image

Although slightly satisfied at the moment, she still feels pain and has had the taste of blood….

Here is a reaper spirit tattoo I made on Chris from Eye of Jade in Chico. Thank you, buddy. Check out the 1078 Gallery and Eye of Jade if you’re ever in Chico, California.
