News update!!!

My painting (and the other terrific paintings) for the Microvisions show is up on Ebay and available for purchase. It is a perfect opportunity to own a piece from a variety of comic and illustration greats. We worked small, 5x7 inches, in order to keep the prices affordable! All the proceeds benefit the Society of Illustrators student scholarship fund, a very cool cause.


I also recently did a podcast interview with Dwight and Swain over at Sidebar. Terrific guys to talk to. We covered a lot of topics, specifically art (of course) and music. Take a listen if you get a chance. My voice didn't crack once...a small miracle!?!


And lastly the magazine that my friends (Dustin, Oliver, Orlando [killer Roots illo], Tyler, Eric, and myself) designed and illustrated just went live. It was a fun project, and great to work with those dudes again. It's called "The Find" and has a ton of great articles on REAL hip hop. Ton of top notch artwork from everyone inside. It's a free download so you can't go wrong.

I just listened to your Sidebarnation interview. Good luck in St. Petersburg!--I gotta say, I'm pretty envious of that.

Beautifull painting in the mag mate. Lovely use of texture. I also like the use of straight spontaneous shapes in you exhibition piece.

Hi Francis, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

MAN! I'm really impressed by how you keep getting better and how you never stop griding. I've seen your stuff when you first came on the blog scene and seeing it keep growing is inspiring man. I really dig how you keep plugging and your supporting your homies, the music you love and how you keep getting published. Best of continuing blessing King.

Congrats to all your recent and future en devours .

Take care and keep grinding.
