I just did an image for a zine coming out soon curated by Jordan Goodspeed.
I messed up the prompt and did it too small and in color but I loved it and it came out great. Its the
sketch for the new painting. Then I did the b/w version for the zine. Long story short: I have been doing art.
I am featured in the 2013 Sketchbook Project Tour, which is currently traveling the united states. If you get the chance stop by and have a looksy. Hope you enjoy it.
In other news, I had an opening at Seattle's Pelmini Tzar's dumpling shop for the art walk last Friday. The art walk was a lot of fun and my paintings look great in there.
I am putting together another rendition of The Cactus Shop for Cherry Sprout Grocery store. It opens the first weekend in April with a few rock bands and a stand up comedian. Thanks Nick O'Neill. Images of progress to come. Its going to be a good one.

My dear friend, Willoughby Arevalo brought this awesome mural that I did with Lauren Kinney and Mikey Thoms years ago up with him when he came up for the pizza show. It has been hanging in Willoughby's house ever since it was painted where is was the figure head for a monster themed show and now its at the basement pub, where it will be up for your viewing pleasure. The show is wonderful and the bar is brighter than ever.
Lots going on in the Luke Forsyth art studio. I can catch you up to speed a little bit.
I was asked to design a t-shirt design for a friends band, Sun Hop Fat. An excellent Oakland Band playing psychedelic afro beat and the band happens to be comprised of many of my very good college friends. you should look them up and go to the face book. There is a picture of the tee shirt below and them some pictures of people wearing the shirts and having a really good time.
