Forgot to mention this earlier, but this Saturday Vancouver’s brand new HOT ART wet CITY Pop-Up Gallery will be opening their Big Lebowski inspired art exhibit. This is their first exhibit, and will run until September 30.

You can RSVP if you’re in the area right here on their Facebook page.

Graphic Designer Chris Bentzen is the creator of HAWC, and his gallery featuring pop-art and fan art themed shows deserves some major love!

Oh, yeah and my little dude will be on display there as well!

Marx Riot

It’s that time of year again. 

Way back in 2009 I decided I was going to start drawing after not picking a pencil for a good 10 years,give or take. If you’re an artist you know it can a solitary enterprise. Not saying that’s all bad, but it helps to have some company of sorts. Some background music, maybe the tv playing, or even,well, a podcast. If you’re going to be sitting behind a desk for long hours you need something to stimulate your mind.

After being referred to the podcast Tank Riot, I must say it’s been a constant companion in my artistic journeys thus far. When hosts Viktor,Tor and Sputnik asked the listeners to draw what they thought they really looked like, I had to indulge them. So every year I create a new one, and this year I used the Marx Brothers as inspiration. Don’t ask to explain what’s going on in the poster, just check out the other works on the Artistic License page. (There’s a great Marx Brothers episode you can listen to as well) This one’s for you gentlemen!

I mentioned this on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but I might as well make it an official post. This wonderful book above is now available worldwide, and if you’re a fan of this movie you should not hesitate to pick it up. It’s a wonderfully written 200+ pages with an amazing collection of photos,essays and artwork. Which includes myself on page 104!


Jenny M. Jones has created an essential reading companion to the Big Lebowski. I’m very proud to grace the pages of this book, and bravo to Jenny and all involved in this undertaking. The book is available pretty much everywhere, more info here.
