If you care, some do some don't but I figured for the ones who do I would give ya a little heads up. These are a few recent books I have had my works featured in amongst other artists.
Speedseekers just hit bookstore shelves this month and was a labour of love for our pal Alexandra Lier and loaded with the writings of none other than my pal and fellow Gearhead magazine writer Kevin Thomson.

Standard Issue zine.
Lets start with the cover of #4.
"Cheaper than sniffing markers and almost half as awesome!"
And follow up with what you can expect inside their awesomely independent photo copied covers. (on stolen paper none the less.)
How to fight
This is the stuff greatness is made of. Oriana and I laughed our faces off. The writing is great and the art is so good/bad it hurts.
my first introduction was this from their facebook page:

James Hetfield Hired me to paint his fibreglass cigar store Indian this fall so I decided to document it.
That's when my pal Jon Bastien came in with his Super 8 cam and editing skills. (Thanks bro!)
The Indian it's self was in ruff shape and the finish quite porous so I teemed up with my pal Rolfe Britain to smooth it all out, Bondo and shoot the flake. Unfortunately I didn't get any shots of the airbrushing and candy process.
After the initial paint I broke out the 1-shot and went to work.

He was better know for the Famous Monsters Of Filmland magazine.

Each year around the holidays I make a little limited item.
This year I decided to make the decanter/mug/skateboard/shelf set.
I figured this would be a good thing to do as the decanters are on there last run and will most likely be out of stock sometime in '09. The set is limited to 100 signed and numbered.
The sets are $100 plus shipping and you can get them at secretserpents
