This is as clean as it gets.

This is mostly my life in progress, and a few things that inspire me.

Wayne White’s “Invisible Ruler" at Joshua Liner Gallery.

Opening tonight - Thursday, September 11th, 2014 - at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York, New York is Wayne White’s solo show, “Invisible Ruler."  Wayne White’s eccentric style and life has been well documented through documentaries such as "Beauty is Embarrassing,” and years of hard work in almost every field of art from cartooning, puppet design (he designed the puppets on Pee Wee’s Playhouse) to directing (He directed the Smashing Pumpkin’s video for “Tonight, Tonight.”)  ”Invisible Ruler" will feature a plethora of new work from kinetic sculptures to pen and ink drawings, and of course his signature words on found art paintings.  See more below!

I’m having major difficulties in putting thoughts to rest.

Flash progress. I’m getting medieval.

I’m a snack-aholic. Fruit snacks aren’t safe around me. I don’t have self-control when it comes to these things.

I’m constantly uploading to Instagram, I think it’s mostly because ‘it’s there’ and a little more instantaneous when it comes to knowing if people actually care to take a look at things. Tumblr seems to just disappoint me when it comes to interaction, and it’s the interaction that I want mostly.
It would be nice to be able to take some challenges by people that happen to like my work. I’m always open to making someone’s idea into a reality — on paper.

Here’s one for you shark-lovers. I dig sharks too much.

Here is a (literal) quick look at how I shade.

If you are what you do, could you agree with yourself, or live with yourself?

Ha. For a second, I thought, “Wow. I didn’t even drink while I was staying in San Francisco.” 

Oh, yeah, I went to a bar. Four pints of a porter I can’t remember. It was good, but I don’t remember the name.

I’d be reluctant to stay, and I would be reluctant to leave. 

Good Bye, San Francisco.

I don’t even know how kissing became a thing. All I do know is that I will have to look at a lot of kissing for a single flash page. It’s a design request.

I was finally able to take a nap during the trip from Union Station to Bakersfield. Now, I’m looking forward to the sunrise and the scenic route that Amtrak has to offer, as we make our way up through the San Joaquin route.

how to improve your art:

  • practice
  • practice
  • every single day, as much as you possibly can, practice
  • experiment
  • experiment a lot
  • be inspired
  • keep drawing
  • use references
  • just keep drawing
  • don’t be afraid to use rulers and grids and guidelines for practice
  • study from…

I’m often without inspiration to draw. I find myself drawing the same things in different variations on a near-constant basis, and I can’t help but believe that it’s one of the most maddening occurrences.
Hopefully, some time away from my normal surroundings will help me rekindle my creativity.

Life outside of a studio environment is cruel. Don’t ever let go of the energy that it gives you.

Three Floyds “Backmasking”

89 B+


Backmasking is an Oatmeal Stout which Three Floyds lists as a pub-only release. The term backmasking refers to the use of reverse recording over a track, a technique once popularized by the Beatles. Pleasant aromas resemble vanilla over roasted malts with a strong focus on chocolate, as if outlined by burnt toast. It smells a little like brownies with a touch of walnut, topped by details of Kahlua, whipped cream, and a touch of smoke.


The palate opens smooth as toffee sweetness flows into chocolate grains. Oatmeal, toast, and dark roasted coffee fill the middle register, heading toward a dark body of cacao. Hops gently twist the back-end in a dull bitterness, enclosed by a thin outline of orange. The finish fades into a cola reminiscence. Mouthfeel begins quite smooth, wet like a milkshake or heavy cream. The finish develops a dry, mineral quality with faint acidity. Drinkability is nice and easy.


Having loved all the hoppy beers from Three Floyds, I was curious to see how they handle malts. I’m satisfied where I find an agreeable balance of bitter and sweet elements. I appreciate the rich chocolate flavor. It doesn’t quite taste charred, but theres a high degree of malt roast happening here. This may be a little uncharacteristic of the traditional oatmeal stout. The vanilla detected on the nose isn’t so much apparent on the palate. This is different enough to stand out from the rest of the pack. Overall, it’s a pretty solid beer, so I recommend it.
