I have decided to put some of my art on T-Shirts. They are all airbrushed onto the garment. I did about a dozen or so trial and error shirts, and viewed a ton of tutorials before I perfected the correct mix of ink and heat settings to set the shirt. Find us and like us on Facebook under Spray Bandit Graphics. Enjoy!

I have completed a group of oil paintings over the last year that have a dark, apocalyptic, or surreal vibe to them. Nobody goes to galleries anymore, and im not sure a gallery would want to display them. My wonderful girlfriend Corina, has a cousin named Terry Mathews, who happens to own a hamburger joint called The Brown Bag in Troy, New York located on the corner of 4th & Ferry.
It just happens to be my favorite burger joint in the area also. So Corina mentioned to Terry that I have some oil paintings that might fit the atmosphere of the Brown Bag. Keep in mind, the hours of this place were from 6pm until 6am and most of the crowd was RPI & HVCC students, along with the random sleepless or bar hoppers who are out at that time. I believe he has since opened for lunch also. He does great business by the way.
Ive always admired the funky artwork on the walls and wondered if mine would ever grace the walls. Terry told me to bring the paintings by and throw them up! He even helped by moving some older flyers and a few paintings around to accommodate me. While hanging my work I had 2 employees offer to buy a painting and paint a mural on their bedroom walls! I am very happy to have this opportunity to have my work displayed at the Brown Bag, and thank you Terry and Corina!
About these works: I was a trained oil painter from Russ Mcmahon doing landscapes. I love landscapes. These works are a bit darker or surreal. I paint without a theme, or too much thought, I just have an idea and have to get it out instantly. I hope you go to the Brown Bg and see my work. Have a burger too-they are the best!
Below is Terry, Corina, & myself hanging the works.(Corina was taking the pics and helping too).

Well, most of you know that I work for the local town, here are some views of my job. My co-worker Adam had a car accident, he was lucky to survive. His Uncle was driving and fell asleep, the photo is whats left of the car. The following day,Adam can be seen blow-drying his work boots...??huh?
And the other pics are of me and co-workers contemplating our daily duties. I never knew I was going to be like my father when I grew up. He was a Utility Locator for Niagarga Mokawk(National Grid),,,and now I hold the same title for the Town I work for. On my 11th year. The day is never the same, It is usually busy and hectic, and my wheels are usually spining b4 i leave the office! I dont mind the job,,when im having a rough day, i remind myself of picking papers and trash, and hauling tires up hills, and throwing bags of cement up onto machines, which was my first Town job at the Landfill......Life is good now. Have a great day.
