The Fonz (19??)

I don't normally blog on the weekends but today is Henry Winkler's birthday, and I happen to have this Fonzie illustration I drew sometime between 1979 and 1981. When I was a kid I thought The Fonz was the coolest. I know better now.

Halloween With The Stamberg's (2001)

The above video is from a Halloween party my friends Mike & Christine Stamberg hosted in 2011. The music in the beginning is by my old band ambibat – it seemed to fit the mood best.

"Babyface" Finster, Schneider (from One Day At A Time), Beatniks.

Another Halloween with ambibat (2000)

Here's another Halloween gig I played with ambibat. (Technically it was October 29th, but it was billed as a Halloween show.) Again, it's at ABC No-Rio but this time it's a two-camera shoot.

Halloween with ambibat (1999)

In celebration of Halloween… here's a show I did with ambibat at ABC No-Rio, Halloween night, 1999. For this performance we turned off the lights, lit candles and Blaise put a flashlight in is sax (at 5:46). This meant no one could see the video camera I set up on a tripod in the back, so at 2:40 a couple of girls stand in front of the lens and bump into it, throwing the autofocus off. After a while they realize they're in the shot (it's funny seeing the girl look directly into the lens) and they walk away, but the camera remains out of focus.

ambibat + flickering shapes and lights = spooky.

I often used my childhood art for ambibat flyers. To see the original art, click here.

Frankenstein (19??)

I drew this Frankenstein somewhere between 1979 and 1982. Not sure.
