Hello, friends. Here is what's happening.

I will be having a show from Nov 2 through Nov 30 at saki, located in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. It's a really great record store with some fine space to display artwork. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, Nov 2nd from 6pm to 9pm. There will also be music, courtesy of Mawrcrest, who will be releasing an EP that night, along with the live debut of Wisconsinite, my own musical project.


You can find my artwork for sale, along with many other great things, at Paperish Mess in Chicago, Illinois. Visit, buy, and enjoy!

You can see images of new work right here. There's lots to see.

Take a look at Lux Lisbon's video "Get some scars" over on youtube. It's pretty great.

In other news, I've been recording some songs with the help of my friend Anthony, who is in a great band called Mawrcrest. You can listen to my songs here. Check out Mawrcrest while you're at it. They're great!
