I don't know about you but I always like to start off my mornings by listening to David Lynch report the weather. It cracks me up every time!

Tiki Oasis

This weekend is a convention I've been looking foward to all year long, maybe even more then the SD Comic Con, which is saying a lot!

The show is the 10th annual Tiki Oasis Extravaganza in sunny San Diego. It's a weekend of fun, music and partying...hopefully with a Mai Tai in the beautiful Crown Plaza Hotel, and I'm thrilled to be exhibiting my work at the shows marketplace. Trish Tatman will also be on hand selling some great work like plush Tikis and shrunken head keychains, so everyone should really swing by and say hello!

Speaking of the almighty Tiki, you should also head on over to my brother Josh Parpan's blog where he's posted some preview images for a children's book project we've been working on together for a few years now. I wrote the manuscript way back when I was a student at CalArts, and I'm really excited to see the awesome pictures he's contributing.

Nice work Josh.

I drew this last night while listening to Neil Young's score from the film Dead Man. I've been in a sketching mood lately, so you'll be seeing more of these loose paintings in the next couple of weeks.
