One Hundredth Post- Art from 32nd & Urban, 12/16/07

Yayer!


Live art at the 32nd and Urban Gallery opening
was off the hook. Friday the 15th had Intel on
the decks and Revise CMW, Joey D and Kepha
rocked the wall space live…pics of their art

The night then took us to Tuman’s where Haiku
shared the product of his baking skills, then
to the Continental, which fucked my head up
ten times over…

The next day (Saturday the 16th) I painted alongside
Blutt and Esho on the wall across from the pieces above.
Free beer, chips n’ guac, and brownies. Tunes by DJ
Genghiswon. The Scumbags rolled through with full force..

Live art pics from Wed Night Trimm @ Danny’s 11/29

I’m waiting on photos from Huddleston so you can get the full scoop.
Thanks to those who made it out and gave props.
Thanks to Tony Trimm and Novem for setting this up.
Thanks to Once A Month and John Herndon for the dancefloor
flavors…
Thanks to Mike and Erin for rockin it once again!
Wednesday Night Trimm at Danny’s is always a good time.
Peace to the birthday girls in the house!
Thanks to Carl Wilson for being Carl Wilson.


The first piece of the night. This was supposed to only be a warm-up.
I like it..
“Ricky Walks With God”

Detail.
Thanks to Mike  for the board…


The second piece of the night. I painted til the end…

Deetells….

I’ll most likely edit this post with an update once I get more photos.
It’s strange looking at these live art paintings under normal light.
Most spots are dark with colored lights, so it alters the colors you
work with.

Don’t have any more Live art shows booked until late December,
though I’m sure one or two will come up between now and then. I’ll
keep you posted.
plus you could always check my profile for dates, etc..

In other news, www.40ozcomics.com , Jim Mahfood’s website, has
finally been updated. I know Jim’s been working on getting this up
since last year, and after a few setbacks it’s good to go. I did the
coloring for all his webpage images (and I colored a few illustrations
here and there). Check it out, leave Jim some love and let me know
what you think! And be sure to give props to Jen for her web
finesse!


inspired by the Isleys….

Peace!
Stay warm, Chicago!

Last minute live art from Sub-T last weds…

So, last Wednesday I was on Milwaukee ave. doing my
pre- Thanksgiving laundry when I got a call from
Trimm. He was at Subterranean (literally right down the street)
and his live artists both backed out at the last minute. I dried
my gear, ran home, washed my ass, loaded my shit and rocked
some impromptu art. I had a good night widdit.
Pickel, Maker and Trimm played the bomb tracks.
Folks in the house showed love, bought me beer…

I wasn’t really prepared, so rather than try some new shit and fuck
up, I painted my Chameleon Girl character.

2′ X 4′ , acrylic..

Close up.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with it. I’m gonna finish it up at home, try
to move it later. The mask around her face was supposed to be more
of a light blue. And that’s what it looked like under the yellow lights.
I’ll have to redo it.

Here’s some sketches. I don’t think I’ve posted them yet. They’re a
little old. Pretty much all the drawing I’m doing these days is for
some fucking production or another. Nothing I’d really care to show
off.




In other news, I’ve actually been motivated to work again. For the
past year or so (or at least since I finished Project: Romantic) I’ve
found myself dragging my heels to get anything done. That’s why I
haven’t been updating this blog as much as I used to and why I don’t
have much in print this year. After a couple years of graphic
novels/mini series, a break up, a move, a couple deaths combined
with going out everynight to get away from it all, I’ve been feeling
pretty burnt. Slowly but surely I’m getting back in the game. I’m
trying to keep from diving headfirst into late worknights for fear that
it would immediately send me running back into escapist behavior.

That’s also the reason why I’ve been slow (or in many
cases never) responding to P.Ms and e-mails. My brain
tends to take vacations I don’t authorize. Especially you,
Munoz. I’ve been keeping up on the Japan thing, and I’ll get
back to you soon…. Sorry bout that, homey!

I just gotta say, I’m thankful for all the friends I’ve made over the
past year who’ve more than helped me maintain a sense of
balance. I can’t imagine who or where I’d be if not for youse.
for reals.
And to all the mofos I’ve known since like forever, and Sara, thanks
for having my back the whole time.

and that’s my post thanksgiving aside. Didn’t really intend on it.

I know I say this all the time, but I’ve got some shit brewin that’ll
knock your socks clean-the-fuck off. Yash! And it’s all for me!!!
no publishers or clients. Just for me! (and you, of course)
oooooooohh!!!

Don’t forget! Tomorrow night-
Wednesday Night Trimm
DJ Tony Trimm
DJ Once A Month
plus special guest
John Herndon of Tortoise

Food’s on the table, pabst in the fridge…

Yo. Ho. Ho. I’m fuckin tired today, so I’m sure I’ll screw this post
all to hell. I need my nap.
I promise next week I’ll be friendlier. Wonder if they’ll let me leave
the office early if I pass out at my desk. It’s worth a shot….

I’ll start with the “available now” news-
Project: Romantic has officially hit the stands this week. Got
my copies in the mail (along with a fancy limited hardcover
edition- Thanks, Chris!!!) and I gotta say this book is lovely.
I’ve never been this impressed with the printing of my work.
You could also see every brush stroke in Scott Morse‘s art.
Props on the hard work. Hell Yeah, Adhouse!!!

Cover by Maris Wicks
Please support this book. Everybody poured their hearts and
jellybeans into this mug…..

Also available is the latest issue of Mad Kids. Look for my Family Funnies strip in the Alfred’s Brain Drool section..

Cal City Whut!?

I was gonna post a bunch of sketches and doodles next, but the
scanner took a shit again. Daymn.
So instead you get some promos-
Tonight! Peabe and Joey D have a gallery show. I’m gonna
try and make this if I’m not dead to the world. Probably
roll in w/ Pickel….

Come through, support Chicago artists!

Buddha Lounge. Check my profile for details. ComeUps in full

except the project romantiv cover, the mad kids cover, and even the
nemo image.. But those Character designs are MINE!! Any of you

damn it’s fuckin hot….

New website, live art and other nuggets…

Yo!
Don’t know what I’m doing, gotta get my ass in gear to prepare for
Wizard World. I will have a table this year, splitting it with Dave
Crosland (hiredmeat.com)
We are going to have a banging afterparty this year on the 5th. I’m
sure you heard already, I musta sent a cheechillion invites today.
And you’ll hear about it some more until I’m absolutely positive each
and every one of you will show. It sucks because a great deal of
people I was hoping to kick it with won’t be making the treck to the
city of wind this year. Fackin losers.
So, last night I got the idea to do a more professional website for
myself. I haven’t updated my own (josegaribaldi.com) site in like
three/four years, I doubt I’ll ever update it again. Long story.
But the new site-
www.littlebrownheart.com
It’ll have new art (probably nothing done before 05, maybe 04)
But it’ll be a bit of a new start. Time for some new shit. Time to let it
be known.
Last night I finished one side of the afterparty flyer. Plus I did a
banner. check it..


In living color…

drawings by Jim Mahfood, myself and Mike Bianco
I’ll post the Huddleston, Crosland, Bianco side tomorrow
Click on the links below (except for Bianco’s. His is still under
developement,,) Check out the art, check out the music created by
the deejays. I guarantee you won’t be still once Pickel drops a little
poison ass praying on you…..

oh yeah, and this isn’t copyrighted by me, either…

ain’t no fun….

yeah it is.
I lied.
Painting, drawing, especially for yourself-
tons of fun.

I had a great time last Saturday. Haiku killed it.
Geti killed it. Crucial killed it.
Thanks to these cats for letting me push paint around.
I think these are some of my favorite pieces I’ve ever
done at any of these live art events. If you haven’t been
to one of ’em, stop slacking, come out, support and
have a good time. The deejays are the shit, artists are
the bomb, and everyone is there to have big fun.

Here are the two paintings I did at the Dennehy
realease show, Saturday, July 8fth—

This has got to be the fastest painting I’ve ever done.


I had other plans for this piece while I painted the background.
As I laid down the gray b.g., I thought to do an image resembling
a black and white sticker of some face (or some other dumb shit.)
Then I looked at it, and this appeared to me. That shit sounds crazy,
and I’m not a religious cat, but I swear ‘fo god that’s what happened.
Out of all the pieces I’ve painted live (and off the top of my dome),
this is my favorite. Hams down.
I still want to touch it up, tighten the piece up like Archie Bell
did the Drells.

The weekend before I painted at Untitled on Clark. I didn’t finish
the piece, but plan to go back into it. She’s holding a knife…

never wrong a woman.

The following images are for the front and back covers of
a book I hope to have available next month. It’s called
Wait For Me, and it’s a collection of short stories, sketches,
concept art and character designs.
These images are close to being done, just couldn’t wait
to post them. The line drawings were done three years ago,
hence the specs, shaved head and goatee. And the Hulk pants.
I colored these pages a week ago, so it’s a strange blend of
old and new…

the front…wip

the back… ditto

Hope all is good. This sucka is tired. Don’t believe Intel or Brandy when they ask you out for “one beer”. Boolshet.

Laters!
