Hey there guys and gals! Big changes are happening in the Kill Taupe world. It's time to say goodbye to the loft I've lived and worked in for the last five years and say hello to a new home and creative space.
I could use your help in clearing out my studio before the big move, so I'm offering 40% off all orders through the end of the month. Yup, that's 40% off all original art, prints, enamel pins, magnets... everything! Then in July, I'll be taking a hiatus so I can stuff my life in a bunch of cardboard boxes and move slightly west!
Thanks for the support and your continued interest in my goofy illustrations. Stay groovy and have an awesome day everybody!
I'm really excited to announce that I will have a piece hanging in this wonderful group exhibit curated by Cuddly Rigor Mortis. The Joys of Toys at Gallery 1988 West celebrates those classic Mattel toys that had such an impact on so many kids.
I would spend countless hours coming up with perilous scenarios for my Masters of the Universe action figures to star in. So, for this show it was only fitting that my piece center around He-Man and his amazing furry red battle briefs. I don't know what was under those things, but it always seemed a strange choice of garment for a warrior known to engage in swordplay. Maybe he just thought his rippling thighs looked good in them?
