My newest piece is purely a labor of love. Pink Flamingos is hands down one of the grossest, and actually shocking, movies I’ve ever seen, so it immediately earned a special place in my heart after I first saw it in my friend’s college apartment all those years ago. I decided to take one of the most famous lines from it and finally pay some respect.

Let me tell you ‘bout THIS GUY! This has been some serious long time coming type of project. It’s been redone, reworked, tweaked, chopped and screwed and been biding some serious time to strike. Well, the the iron’s hot so watch out. It’s REALLY coming out this time. Full detail pics and info on where to buy coming soon……
Did some recent portraits. I’ve been out of college for 6 years and am proud to say that I have finally done not 1 but, 2 dog portraits. It almost felt like a right of passage. Now let’s get down to brass tax.
These three, along with several other pieces, are hanging on the wall at the Gimme! Coffee Mott st. location in NYC for the month of June. There are still a few “Boss of Hearts” and “Escape From Choking in New York” prints available on my site: www.philashworth.com
For my tribute to Joe Dante I went with The Howling. “Kings of Cult: An Art Tribute to Roger Corman and Joe Dante” opens Saturday, May 24th, at Hero Complex Gallery.
Here’s my tribute piece to Roger Corman’s cult classic, Death Race 2000. This’ll be at the opening of “Kings of Cult: An Art Tribute to Roger Corman and Joe Dante” at Hero Complex Gallery, Saturday, May 24th.
Some more process pics of my two pieces for the upcoming “Kings of Cult” show celebrating the work of Roger Corman and Joe Dante at Hero Complex Gallery.
I’ve been listening to Kurt Vile a lot lately.

Whipped up a little set of father figures for my friends fundraiser. All of these will be for sale, along with other local and non-local artists work, to support their DIY skate spot in Syracuse, NY. The event is on April 5th at 7pm at Spark Contemporary Art Space. Go and buy some stuff hanging on the walls so they can keep the spot going.

Wrapped this back on Valentine’s Day but waited a little until the show started getting advertised. Jonathan Toubin throws some excellent parties and I’m psyched that he asked me to illustrate a poster for one of his infamous shows. I was lucky enough to judge one of the dance contests last year and it was intense. Let this quote from Vice sum it better than anybody else can:
"Jonathan Toubin is the only person we can call a "professional DJ" without involuntarily making a jack-off motion with our hand… His parties are like what Ancient Stonehenge was like if it was, as archaeologists theorize, filled with people dressed many times better than you completely losing their shit." (VICE, 2010)
I did a promotional piece for “King For A Day” a tribute show to the works of Stephen King at Hero Complex Gallery. Show opens on March 21st. Big high-five from the east coast to Adam on the west coast for including me in this show.
