Halloween Art Show • October 2016

Frank A.'s Halloween art show at Culture Brewing in Ocean Beach

Thanks to everyone at Culture Brewing in Ocean Beach, where my October 2016 art show featured oil paintings depicting scenes from classic black & white horror movies (that’s The Uninvited above). Some originals and prints are still available.

Here’s a time lapse photo gif showing my painting “Taco Tuesday”. Charcoal drawing, then oil paints on a 8″ x 10″ canvas. This is my favorite spot in San Diego for fish tacos and beer.

Here’s an animated gif showing the progression of the painting I did for Stacey R., through several stages. Charcoal pencil sketch, then black and white oil paints on a 24 x 36″ canvas. In case you don’t know your classic film noir, that’s a scene from The Maltese Falcon.

Had an art show in May of 2015, 44 drawings of scenes around Ocean Beach. The show was at Culture Brewing in O.B., our friend Mary blogged about it on This Tasty Life, and there’s a video on Youtube. Some of the prints are still available here. The drawings can also be seen in our latest comic book, Unemployed in Ocean Beach.

Thought I’d try a few black & white oil paint portraits of Edgar Allan Poe. We gave one of them to our favorite neighborhood pub, the Tilted Stick.

Had some paintings hanging up at the Ocean Beach Playhouse for their production of Spider Baby, then moved them next door  to the Electric Chair for a few months.

August, 2011: got a few paintings hanging at the Pacific Green Pharms Medical Marijuana Collective in beautiful Pacific Beach, San Diego. Although we’re mostly beer and whiskey folks, the staff at P.G.P. were really friendly and knowledgeable, I’d suggest them to anybody in search of quality medicinal marijuana. Each painting is for sale, they are named (from left to right) ”Park Bench”, “The Regular”, “The Typer” and “Sticks and Stones”.

Update 1/28/12: due to a crackdown by big brother, the collective has been forced to shut it’s doors, so now these beautiful paintings are hanging in my crummy apartment, where far fewer stoners can appreciate them.

July, 2011: Our friend and McBacon contributor, Rich K., was featured in a Comic-Con story in the San Diego Reader, it even mentioned our somewhat obscure comic. If you stumble across some of our old art, bathroom graffiti or a Free Crappy Drawing, send us an e-mail:

Here’s an old flyer I found at my mom’s place, it’s for an art show we did in Bethel, Connecticut, way back in 1997. Back in the days when the Clinton administration was giving a new meaning to political polling, and O.J. Simpson was enjoying his fleeting freedom.
