I only have one piece of art to share with you this week, but it’s kind of a doozy.
I wanted to create an epic, science fiction/fantasy style illustration. You know the kind, it’s usually set in a desert landscape, there’s a giant monolith or mystical crystal floating in the center while human figures scurry about in fear or awe.
I inserted a Rubik’s Cube in lieu of an alien spaceship or a cyclopean monolith.
I’m not sure why. Maybe because the solving of this puzzle eludes me. Maybe because it’s a great Hungarian invention and that fills me with pride as a Hungarian-American. Maybe it was just a random thought. That’s probably it.
Take a look below at the finishing touches I put on this digital oil painting.
I’ve also added the above piece and a bunch of other things to my Redbubble shop, see below if you’re interested in prints, magnets, stickers, mugs or various other products.
I think that’s about it for now. I have a few new exciting commissions I am working on and I can hardly wait to share them with you!
It’s been over a month, but I’ve finally gotten around to compiling a video of the fun I had creeping around Brooklyn in my trash wild man costume.
I’ve been toyingwith this costume idea for a few years but have never been able to get it together.
As with most of my ambitious projects, it was years in the making but then ultimately a spur of the moment, headfirst dive into cardboard, paper and duct tape. Maybe I can do a follow up with a few of the step-by-step progress photos in my messy, cramped apartment.
As you can see, I had way too much fun during this weird, pandemic Halloween of 2020. At least something was kinda normal for once.
Until next time!
Do you know that I tweet about stuff? I think I’m pretty entertaining, you should probably come hang out and say hi. It’s super fun. And if not there, why not check out my YouTube channel?
I’m still plugging along. Some days my stress and anxiety get out of hand. Other days I channel it into art. See above.
An artist friend recently suggested that I try it. I think I always have done that to some extent, especially when it comes to my darker and more macabre pieces. But in the past few weeks I’ve made a more conscious effort to try it.

How about you? How do you deal with stress and anxiety?
Another pursuit of mine is music. Lately I’ve enjoyed putting together some playlists on Spotify. Check out this one below that I call “Unknown Originals.” Famous songs performed by the original artists that you might not have ever heard before.
And finally, below is something I dug up in my archives from 2009. I recently revamped, polished up and uploaded to YouTube. It’s short and amusing and ridiculous and I had way too much fun working on it. Enjoy!
