    ChetArt- Drink Coaster Set

    Posted By on October 7, 2014


    In the mood for a “Schöfferhofer Chimpin Dunkel?” This well-aged premium dark lager mixes burnt banana aromas with a perfumy palate of strict simian Prussian overtones. It’s just one from the variety of six paper drink coasters featuring fictitious beer brands created by ChetArt. From “Dreaming Cat Pale Ale” to “Flying Luchador Bridge Bat Beer,” each screen printed design is showcased on an ultra thick 110 pt. 4″ round pulpboard coaster. Dress up your table or bar with these whimsical designs presented in a variety of colors. Packaged in a clear round plastic container.

    ChetArt-Austin Comic Con 2014

    Posted By on October 5, 2014


    The 2014 Austin Comic Con wrapped up on Saturday and it was a great show. Lots of wonderful folks came by to visit and purchase my art and I was overwhelmed with the fantastic support and friendliness. Thank you to everyone! Just when I thought that the record breaking sales day on Saturday would be my best memory, it was trumped by a visit to the booth by none other than Norman Reedus. He spotted the feline Daryl “Wagging Dead” tribute and along with it, snagged an Alien Big Wheel print. He’s an awesome person and offered up a kind compliment for my work. Thank you Norman and Austin Comic Con, for a great experience.

    The Vincent Price Signature Wine Collection

    Posted By on September 24, 2014


    Earlier this year I took part in a tribute art show to the films of Joe Dante and Roger Corman, titled “The Kings of Cult.” My tribute to Roger Corman was based on his classic “The Pit and the Pendulum” starring the great Vincent Price. Thanks to the stellar promotional efforts of The Hero Complex Gallery, news of my piece found its way to Victoria Price, Vincent’s daughter. She was developing a signature line of wines with the Edgar Allan Poe theme that her father was so famous for with his unforgettable performances. After providing some compositional adjustments and the title, I transformed my original piece into the “Bartolome Red” label. Also in the collection are the artistic talents of Gris Grimly, Abigail Larson and Aaron Lea.
