My Store Is Open

Finally. It only took me five years but it has happened. My store is finally open. In fact, someone discovered it while I was in the middle of getting it ready and they actually bought five prints. There are a lot of things for sale. Many beautiful prints of my famous drawings. Each is embossed, then stamped with my Korean chop, signed and numbered. Also there are some originals for sale too. Everything is very reasonably priced. I believe in affordable art for the people. Please check back occasionally because I will be putting up new artwork on a frequent basis. All my work looks great framed and matted. Don't be afraid to give one as a gift. Your friends and family will think you are a high roller, when in fact you are a cheapskate. Don't be afraid to just browse. You can just go to my blog and click on the store button. It's right under the squirrel holding a handgun. When you are at my blog check out my new header. It was created by a brilliant intern working at my ad agency. If you are impatient and can't wait you can go directly to my new store. By the way, I do ship to anywhere in the world.

I just wanted to say that I have been working on putting up a store. I'm getting very close. There will be prints for sale at a very reasonable cost. I believe in affordable artwork for the masses. There will be lots to choose from. I also plan to sell original drawings at a very low cost. After it opens you can check back frequently to see if new items are added. It is coming soon so be on the lookout for a post announcing the actual opening date. Thanks.

Michel Gondry

Many of you have probably seen, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" with Jim Carey and Kate Winslet. It was directed by the great Michel Gondry. He also did, "The Science of Sleep" and "Be Kind Rewind". Not only is he a genius director but he also loves to draw. He has a very unique wacky drawing style. You can check out his website. Anyway a while ago I read where he would draw your portrait for like twenty bucks and send you the original. This was just too good to pass up. about a month ago I sent him my picture and low and behold my portrait drawn and signed by him showed up the other day. How cool is that. Next I'm going to get Speilberg to draw me.

Tommy Kane Draws Red Hook

I have a new little animated opening to my films. It was done by Butch Belair. The music and sound was scored by Massive Music in New York City. I'm always fine tuning. As you can see I only hang out in the best places.

John Woolley

One of my fans happens to be a forth grader named John Woolley. He has very early in life decided to be an artist. When he first contacted me to have a look at his drawings, I thought they were very nice. Little did I know that he was 9 years old. When I found that out I must say I was shocked. He is way way way better than I was at his age. Trust me, I drew all the time too. He just has what it takes. His skill level just continues to improve. He is someone we can all look up to. Take a look at more of his work on Flickr. Recently he made a little zine and he was nice enough to send me one. It was amazing. He seems to write to many artists he likes and most all of them have written back to him. This internet thing is nice. He is greatly influenced by the amazing Dan Price. Keep it going John.

All In The Family

A year or two ago, one of my long lost cousins found me. Most of you don't know that I was lost, but I was. Recently her son got married. Tons of my cousins were there. Some I hadn't seen in thirty years. I quickly realized they are all out of their minds. No exceptions. All the boys are named Tommy and all of the girls are named Eileen. I guess it makes it easy when you have a kid. It makes the naming the kid problem non existent. I was surrounded by drunken retards. Most look like leprechauns. The most disturbing part was that I felt very much at home. They get all my stupid humor, which makes me act more stupid. Which in turn makes them act even more stupid then I've just been acting so then I have to act even stupider then them again. You get the idea. Now we are constantly e-mailing each other and planning to hang out more. Now that I have my membership card back there is no getting out. I'm back in for the long haul. The lesson is: it's good to have a demented family.

Postal Art

There is something called, "Mail Me Art." It is where artists from around the world make a piece of original art on an envelope or a box and then mail the original artwork. The final stamped and postmarked artworks are then put into a book. There is also a gallery show that goes along with it in London. I participated last year but I didn't give a real big effort. I was actually surprised it ended up in a book. So this time I did a really cool one. I'd be happy to have this in a book.
