The first Bear Mop shirt I designed for Mishka is now available in their online store.



The black version is almost sold out already. As of this post, it's only available in size small. White and blue are still available in several sizes.

GRIND Deck

I've got a piece on an upcoming "GRIND" show at Hive Gallery; all work on skate decks.

Here's a little preview of mine:

Moray Eels -> Ghost Clam

Back in April my good buddy from Brookyn Dan Bones was visiting, and I showed him the moray eel piece, posted here previously. His take was that I could go further with the stipple shading. I decided he was right and revisited it, spending some more time with the work on paper, then re-importing it and separating out the colors.

I'd had in mind that this might look good as a "band shirt" and have been rattling around the idea for a collection of t-shirts for bands that don't exist. So here it is re-worked:



I would like to turn this into a shirt, and have it be the first of a series of shirts for bands that don't exist.

Trannysaurus Rex shirt

I made this one-off shirt on request for my friend Mel's birthday. Everyone was like "woah, I want one!" So I'm going to have a run printed. They'll be $20.

If you'd like one, here's how to get one:

PRE-ORDER INSTRUCTIONS
Send an email to shirts@nickjam.es with "Trannysaurus Rex" in the subject. Include in the body of the email your name, address if outside of the Salt Lake Valley, and most importantly, your size preference. Once I've got the data together, I'll put in the order. You don't need to pay now, but like, don't burn me on this and cancel your order after it's been produced, 'cause I'm paying for the run out of my own tiny little pockets.

Per & Silvanus Prints



I had 25 archival giclée prints made of the Per & Silvanus piece, which I'm selling for $40 per, plus a small amount for shipping, $5 or less. They are the same size as the original, 12"x12". If you're interested, please email me at nick@nickjam.es and I'll put you on the list.

Moray Eels Ink


Playing with some color options for this. Would you buy this as a shirt? Like maybe if there was a band name on top.

Moray Eels Pencil


I saw Under the Sea 3D at the Imax theater last week and I couldn't stop thinking about moray eels. Thus: this.

Sketches

Every polished piece starts with a really rough sketch, usually on cheap sketchbook paper and sometimes on scrap printer paper. I don't usually sketch out the whole scene, just the figure. Here's two side-by-side examples of the original rough sketch next to the finished piece.


Wow, I just noticed that these two figures are in very similar poses! That was not intentional.

I'm still waiting on http://howfuckingromantic.wordpress.com/ to post this - I submitted it over a week ago. I'm sick of waiting. Here it is, complete.

Strangulation


Here's how that one looks colored. This will be accompanied by a second piece titled "A Man Fires a Gun into a Crowd", which I'm working on.

And the Xylophone Track piece is finished - just waiting until it's posted to "announce" it here.
