LOWSIDE

My good friend Rich recently launched a quarterly magazine dedicated to custom car and motorcycle  culture called LowSide . The magazine and hardcover book chronicling Q-Ball's time with 'Dirt That Moves' are worth a look even if you aren't into bikes... gorgeous photos and characters.

He mentioned that since most of the magazines on the topic are west coast oriented, he parodied a Baltimore icon for the launch but wants me to help develop a more original look for them. Here is my quick take on that icon parody, until I have a chance to work up something new...

GATE

Sold this painting today, that I nearly forgot making in 1999.  34" x 42" acrylic and marker on canvas with painted frame.  And the person that bought it seemed very nice.  That is always a plus.

SAN ANTONIO

I took some pictures in San Antonio.  See more here.  Then on the flight back, I dreamt that dolphins started coming on land to eat pets out of people's yards.  Dolphins in dreams are said to represent communication between the unconscious and the conscious mind.  I am affraid that my unconcious mind wants to eat people's pets.

2011 CALENDAR PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The unexpected commercial success of the first calendar, and all of the legal wranglings associated with a project of that magnitude prevented the already controversial 2010  calendar (
Steve Boone 12 Months of Uncut Dick) from seeing the light of day, but we are pleased to announce that all camps have agreed to put aside these differences for the sake of the art. 

You will not have to white out the days on your 2009 calendar again, in order to use it for the third year in a row because the 2011 calendar is almost here! Steven Boone 2011 Cauliflowlendar!  You are going to wish that 2011 was forever.

* Note that the calendar is not 3-D. I was going to make it 3-D but figured everyone would have a headache by March.
