San Francisco’s legendary Fecal Face Gallery will be hosting my solo show “Thanks A Lot,” showcasing all new work. This is my first large scale solo show since 2008, and will be a combination of large, six foot tall charcoal drawings and smaller ink and watercolor paintings. The show opens January 8th and runs until January 31st, and will be sponsored by my friends at HUF, Antihero and Stance. In addition to the artwork, also available will be a new signed and nunbered silkscreen edition, as well as books and pins. The opening should be a really good time, hope to see …
