Tonight I have some work showing in Los Angeles as part of a music and art exhibition called Midnite Communion. Also showing are Jas Helena (event curator), Stevie Floyd (Dark Castle, Taurus) Jef Whitehead aka Wrest (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice) and Davide Mancini. Amarok and Funerary will be performing. This is a free event, though donations are encouraged. Unfortunately I can’t be there to attend, but if you live in the LA area please go!
I have teamed up with my friend Cannon Dill, established muralist and illustrator, to form Invirness Clothing, a new brand that showcases our individual styles as well as a collaborative spirit. The initial run involves two collaborative designs and one solo design from Cannon Dill on shirts and a hoodie. Ahead of its late Autumnal release, we’re offering all the designs early for a one-night only pop up shop at LeQuiVive gallery in Downtown Oakland this Friday, November 1st. Limited quantities of each design will be available from 7 to 10pm, and the first 30 attendees get a free art print by Cannon. Hope some of you can make it!
Stickers are back up in the webstore, The same three classic designs with “Cloven Hoov” text. $3 for 6 stickers. First 25 orders will come with a new sticker, the “moon” illustration which is 3.5” in diameter. Screen printed vinyl stickers.
I’m very pleased to share this collaboration between myself and Canada-based designer Ovate. I reworked an older illustration to be used specifically for a dress designed and sewn by Audrey Cantwell of Ovate. I feel our aesthetics mesh very well and I am very happy with the result. These dresses will be a limited run of 30 and will be available in a few hours in the Ovate Store.
Natvres Mortes Illvstration has existed for two years today. I want to extend my thanks to everyone who has supported me over the past couple of years. It’s because of you that I am able to do what I do today. Thank you.

In anticipation of our appearance at Eternal Warfare Fest this weekend in Salem, Oregon, the good people at CVLT Nation have set up a special interview series where my good friend Rainbath Visual and I asked each other some questions. Find both halves of the interview below.
There are many new items in the store. Let’s begin with New Mythologies vol. II. New Mythologies started as an art zine to commemorate my art show with Reuben Sawyer and Tanner McCardle. I’ve since had the idea to extend it to include more volumes featuring a variety of illustrators. NM vol. II Features work from myself, Pierre Perichaud, Andy Sloan, ELFT, Nate Burns and art and poetry by Tanner McCardle. Limited to 30 hand-numbered copies. Xerox zine with cardstock covers.
Next, there is an assortment of smaller patches, all printed with grey ink on heavy black canvas.
Then there are the back patches. The first, “The Storm,” is a recent illustration that was turned into a backpatch. Due to certain events there will only be one in the store. Woops. I want to get them reprinted but in the mean time there’s just the one. The second, the Harry Clarke worship image was printed smaller than I thought. It can still be used as a back patch but it might be small for some people’s taste. Measurement specs are in the description on the store. Limited to 4.
Lastly, the postal service is a gamble. I’ve lost an unacceptable amount of items through the mail. To me, there are few things more frustrating than getting e mails about items that have not turned up. Please make sure your shipping address is 100% up to date and accurate and I’ll do everything I can on my end to make sure your items reach you.
