So, here goes... this is my first post here treating this like a blog. So, stay tuned or stop back from time to time to see what other junk I'm turning out. I hope to post new art, news, and info. at least once a week.

7-12-08... THE SLACKER UPDATE!

Sorry for the long wait with no new info.
Well... We have a TON of new stuff hitting the streets in the next couple of weeks...
A new 311 / SNOOP DOGG poster, a sick new WIDESPREAD PANIC poster, and 6 new
t-shirts! YES, I said SIX NEW T-SHIRTS to choose from! 2 designs are for the ladies on
some sweet tank tops and girlie tees, 1 design is for the munchkins terrorizing your
homes ( yes, your children! hahaha ), and the final 2 are good ole' t-shirts that fit
everybody! Hell, you can even squeeze on on the family dog if you want to!
Here's a little sneak peak...


New color for the skull print tee... these are on the new Tultex tees made to compete
with American Apparels regular t-shirts... but it has a tear away tag! I likie long time.
The gray ones are printed like this now too... much larger print and off the top of the
shirt... this is how they where supposed to be the first time... MUCH cooler!


Plus our insane leader, Mr. Tidwell,  will be on hand for verbal and physical abuse
at this years Pitchfork Music Festival / Flatstock in Chicago on July 19th and 20th.
He will have all of the new stuff for sale or shop lifting if you are really sneaky!

One last tidbit of info... it's a doozy for all you painters out there...
Tidwell has teamed up with MACK BRUSH COMPANY to design and produce a VERY
limited edition paint brush set... it's 6 brushes made for multi-media use.
They are basically the 6 brushes he uses to create almost everything on this site!
We will have 100 sets, signed and numbered... there are a total of only 288 sets
that will ever be made. Each set will come with a couple goodies all wrapped up in
a nice little package to make all of your friends wet their pants. The sets should be
out in a month or so and will be around the $35 mark... which is pretty damn cheap
for 6 first quality paint brushes... he must be going crazy again... or still!
Here's a little peak at the look of the brushes... they actually have little brass knux
printed on the handles... Hell Yeah!
This is just a computer mock up but you get the idea...


The label for the brush packs... again, it's a mock up...


More news coming soon, Trust us... you gotta take all this madness in small doses.

"I don't know what to do with my hands"


Jeral has been involved in a motorcycle accident with a careless drunk driver. In-turn, he has broken both of his wrists pretty severely. Other than that, the rest of him is as ugly as it ever was. He will not be able to do any new art for a few months, but we will still be getting poster and book orders out for him. If it takes a few extra days to get your orders, please be patient. There will be a lot of juggling happening to get everything taken care of.

However, none of the juggling will be done by him.

If you urgently need to reach him, you can still email him and I'll be spying through all of his stuff, but please refrain from the usual desperate emails requesting hand-jobs. You'll just have to wait it out.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,
Justin Kamerer/Angryblue.com

6-4-09 THREE PIECE BRUSH SET

You guys and gals had to know that I wouldn't stay silent long...
The new 3 piece paint brush set came in today!!!!
They are:
- " FIVE SPEED " - Which is a larger version of the " SLIM" from the original
set. The five speed is basically a #5 script / scroll brush as the slim was basically a #3 or so.

-"HEAVY" - Which is a larger version of the "LIL BIT MORE" ... it's a little longer and
fatter so it has a ton of uses... seriously.

-"ONE-LINER" - This is a completely new brush... it is Amazing for outlining, details, med. to long lines within an illustration.
Before, I was using the MACK Virus #1 but wanted to make it a little different and change the handle shape to fit better in the hand.
You will LOVE this brush.

CRAZY EYES TOY SCULPT 1.0

Ok kids... you knew it would happen sooner or later... my first toy idea and my first time to use Sculpty... it's pretty fun.
I've wanted to do a toy for a while but just didn't know if I had anything to offer
that world... I think this is fun and simple enough.
The eyeball is about the size of a baseball... the idea is to have a little kit...
one eyeball, 2 hats, one arrow ( maybe ) and a set of wings... and I want to
make a little halo that would be suspended over his head on a little spring or
something.

We want to Thank all of you for making the paint brush sets such a success and let you
know that the 100 signed and numbered sets are wiped out! We do have plenty of
the exact same sets that are signed but not numbered. Hopefully these will last through

so keep us in your favorites list... you won't regret it!

1-17-2008 FIRST POST OF THE YEAR

So... it's 2008... we don't have jet cars, living sex robots, and tofu still taste like
cardboard... But we do have NEW Tidwell art crap for you to fill you world with! So get
your paypal finger ready for action, 'cause it's gonna be a crazy year!
First thing we should mention is that Mr. Tidwell has teamed up with one of the sickest
apparel companies on the planet ( maybe even some other planets too... ? ), the ever
popular BLACK HEARTS BRIGADE. Yep, and not only that... we have an exclusive limited
edition run of the first offering from this powerhouse team. Jeral has licensed his famed
NINE LIVES #1 to be plastered across the chest of all with the balls to wear it.
There are only 100 of these bad boys to be had so get 'em while you can. Jeral has
already taken like 10 of them so we had to lock him out of the studio just long enough
to post this message. This a ONE TIME printing so don't miss out.

This is going to be one of the best shows Jeral has ever been involved with. He has
created about a dozen new paintings for the show and we seriously doubt any of them
will make it back to the studio, so don't miss out. Not to mention that there are 3 other
artist that actually have talent... you will kick yourself in the head if you miss this show.

shouldn't even know about! So if you ever had the desire to poke him with a stick or
kick him in the shin... here's your chance.
He also dropped a few new prints on us before he ran off screaming about how much
stuff he had to pack into his car before heading out... He really is insane sometimes!
So... we have a brand spankin' new CLUTCH poster that we'll have a SUPER limited
amount for sale after the concert, as usual... never before so stop asking! hahaha
He also just wrapped up new versions of some pieces that were pretty sick the first
time around and the new versions are even SICKER! See for you self... Yes, he has gone
a little crazy with the red, white, and silver on black paper... but can you blame him,
that combination kicks so much ass, even his art looks cool! Please don't tell him we
said that... ;-)

are pretty damn snazzy! Comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
The cost is $80 plus shipping.

4-16-09 THE "HOLY SHIZZLE IT'S BEEN A WHILE" UPDATE

Ok kids... this is a pretty big update.
I've been slackin' on the news but not the art so I think it's a fair trade... right!
So, new gig posters, art prints, skateboard, and a fresh run of t-shirts!
Let's do this...
Here is the latest colab with LANDYACHTZ skateboard co. in British Columbia...
these kids are totally sick in the head and I love 'em! The built deck is mine so
don't even ask. In order to stick to the ole' school feel, I ordered a set of flo green rails, a tail skid and nose skid! It's the deck I wish I had in 1984!
You can get your very own at www.landyachtz.com. They also have a sick longboard
with one of my designs on it.

 
To stick to the skateboard theme... the latest art print. There are only 100 of these
so don't sleep on it!



The latest gig poster set... FALL OUT BOY! Nothing else needs to be said.
This is a 2 poster set, signed and numbered to match... I left them as an
uncut sheet so the numbers don't get mixed up but there is a line down
the middle if you want to cut them apart for framing or whatever.
They will be available on 4-23-09 but there will only be 30 sets for sale
so don't think too long or you will miss these!



Last but not least... we have placed an order for a fresh run of Quality and Value
t-shirts... they should be in early next week.

NINE LIVES 4 and 5! Hot off the press...
Both are limited edition of 100 signed and numbered art prints.

So... we have been waiting like 20 years for Jeral to make his version of the
the classic " LADY LUCK " image we all know and love... well he finally
came through and WOW! He knocked it out of the park! We think this is
one of the best shirts we've ever offered... See for yourself... Enjoy!
The spade with striping is on the front and the Lady Luck is on the back.
We have them in cream ink on black shirts and black ink on ash gray shirts.
And FINALLY we are proud to offer our first hoodie... we have been trying to get

7-9-9 INK ALCHEMY: VOL. 2

Yep... I'm back!
This time it's gonna make a LOT of you happy... you all asked for it, here it is:
Angryblue and I have made a new INK ALCHEMY book... Over 40 pages of the latest and sickest illustrations from both of us. The books have a 3 color screen printed cover with aged parchment pages. Limited edition of only 650 books. Signed by both of us.
The first 100 orders will get 2 small screened art prints and a pile of stickers... after the prints are gone it's just a bad ass book and a pile of stickers, so it is still a killer deal.
Justin and I will both have a dozen or so variant cover books ( the orange is mixed with some yellow and kinda cool looking ) that we will be listing with special deals in the
near future.
Available in the store's "BOOKS" section

update... 7-10-9
First 100 with both art prints SOLD OUT!
We still have a few of the angryblue art print ( we printed more of those ) so the next few will get those and of course the "pile of stickers!" mentioned above.
Thanks everyone! Justin and I seriously do appreciate the support.

Here is a sneak at what's coming up next.
This is the companion piece for the sold out BALI SKULL print. Jeral is working on
a series of these beautiful prints that explore the rich and diverse cultures from all
around the globe. The second in the series is a reflection of Thailand and their
beautiful festival of lights as seen through Jerals twisted brain.
The art should be complete and prints available very soon... so stay tuned.
Enjoy

Update

Despite not having much strength in his fingers, Jeral has started figuring out some sign language and has a message for drunk assholes on the roads.



surgery went better than expected and the recovery time should be a lot less dramatic than we previously thought! We'll see how long it takes for him to start uglying up the world again.

Thank you for the kind messages and also the orders to help out while he's not able to grift per usual.

GOOD NEWS FOR JERAL BAD NEWS FOR YOUR EYES 11-11-09

I'm back! Yes, it is true... the art madness that is my life is on it's way to a full and completely demented recovery. My doctor has finally given me the go ahead to start trying to draw and paint again. I also have permission to drive my car so watch out if you live in my town!
I have been sketching for a few days now, no inking or painting yet but I plan to tackle
those real soon. I will upload some of the post-reconstruction sketches and hope to
have a new art print out by the end of the month, I just have to see what I can do within the limited range of motion and the large amounts of pain. I also hope to post the x-rays of my wrists with all the metal plates and screws that I now have living in my arms... they are pretty cool looking.
Also, I plan on having my t-shirts back on line in time for all holiday orders so check back soon.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me get through this life altering event...
I truly do appreciate you all.

12-12-09 ART NERDS INVADE ZURICH SWITZERLAND

The poster says it all... Seriously, just look at it and feel it's POWER!
Posters designed by ANGRYBLUE because he is truly the master artist of the bunch
and deserves much praise for putting up with DWITT and TIDWELL.
This is going be a HUGE event so if you can come, it will be a night that you will not
soon forget... unless of course you have a really good therapist.

12-12-09 NEW ART PRINTS AND T-SHIRTS

We thought we'd throw some new goodies out here to let you know what Tidwell has
been up to. Here's his latest art print that SOLD OUT in one hour which
is Amazing to say the least... Thanks to all who bought it. As you have read below,
Jeral has been recovering from a life changing accident and these are his first 2
pieces of art since his wrists where re-constructed. There are no words to express
how happy we are to have him back in the saddle and we know he truly does
appreciate all of the support you all have given him... Thanks from all of us.
The new t-shirts should be available next week. The skull and helmet drawing was
the last entry in Jeral's sketch book just 2 days before the crash so he has really
wanted to finish it and get it out on the streets. It is a perfect piece to come back with
since it is a bit prophetic considering what happened just after it was made.
Not to mention... is it pretty BAD ASS if we may say so ourselves. There will also be
stickers with this image coming real soon.
Enjoy

New art print...

6-19-2010 INK ALCHEMY 3 AND SHOW PRINTS

Finally! We are super stoked to announce the release of INK ALCHEMY VOL.3, the
latest book release from ANGRYBLUE and TIDWELL under their CRACKHEAD PRESS label.

With the success of the first two Ink Alchemy volumes and the fact that Tidwell has
been recovering from multiple surgeries from his motorcycle crash, we had no idea
how long it would take to see the next installment of creative insanity. After a sneak
preview of Vol. 3, we are happy to report that this is by far the best one yet.



We are also very happy to get permission to release the show prints from the first
ROCKAHOLICS show in Zurich, Switzerland. Angryblue, DWITT, and Tidwell rocked
the Swiss alps with a blaze of screen printed, skull crushing glory and we have the
signed and numbered posters to prove it! Check them out listed under Rock Posters.

12-17-2010 HAPPY HOLIDAYS and STUFF

Jeral here, I just wanted to let all of you how much we appreciate your support.
I have a million reasons to be thankful... considering the fact that just a year
ago I was laid up with both arms crushed (thanks to an asshole drunk driver) and my
Dr. telling me I will likely never be able to make art again. Well, 5 surgeries later and
here I am... STILL mucking up the world with my visual madness.
I truly do feel like the luckiest guy on earth to get to make art for a living and
I know that I could not do it with out all of you... yes YOU! THANK YOU!
The new year is gonna be nuts! I have about a million new ideas ready to be poured
onto the earth in many different forms. This year will also see the release of my full
on coffee table book from PRESTO art publishing... it has been years in the making.
I'm also working on a new INK ALCHEMY book with ANGRYBLUE that should be out
by mid January. I have also teamed up with TOXICO UK, Lethal Threat / Car Tattoos,
and ACME speed shop of SoCal to bring even more madness to the streets.
Also, watch for the release of my SUPER limited edition toy / sculpture with a
set of real brass knux for the base... details coming soon.

This year is getting kicked off with my first gigposter in a year! and what better way
than going HUGE... like WU-TANG HUGE! Yep... coming real soon. Like I said, 2011
is gonna be a sick year.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A KICK ASS 2011!

1-27-2011 TIDWELL RABBIT PRINT

This is my most unique print so far... I wanted to create the illusion of
embossed paper to add another level of visual and physical beauty.
I accomplished this by screen printing 2 layers of clear varnish
over the image and the result is more than I could have dreamed.
Once you have this in hand you will not want to stop touching it...
it is truly the most unique poster you will have in your collection.
18X24 inches, screen printed, 3 colors plus 2 layers of clear to create the
beautiful embossed effect. Signed and numbered edition of only 100 pcs.

2-5-2011 "LOVE" LETTERPRESS TREE PRINT

This is my first letterpress print... "LOVE" Signed and numbered
edition of only 100 pieces, 11 x 16 inches. If you are not familiar with
letterpress printing, it is really cool and hasn't changed much in over
500 years! These prints are made 1 at a time with a huge amounts of
pressure that actually presses the ink and image deep into the paper
making it a relief of the image. They are beautiful and great to touch.
SOLD OUT

Today is monumental... FIVE art prints released at the same time! WOW!
Technically there are 7 if you add color variants... The boy is sick in the head.
As you already know, Jeral doesn't sleep much and if today is a perfect example
of that then there isn't one. He has been in the print shop every day for a couple
of weeks printing, cussing, and rockin out to whatever madness he has blasting
through his head phones. Even for him, this is a ton of prints to release at one time.
They are all available in the " Art Prints " section of our store... here is a sample.

10-18-11 NEWS FROM ARTBOY

So, it has been a minute since the last update but I assure you that I have been
busy as a one legged man in an ass kickin' contest! There is a flood of new art
coming over the next few weeks... just in time for the holidays. I've finished
the layouts for "de nada", my full blown coffee table book, it's off to my publisher
so it should be on the streets in the very near future. 180 pages of technicolor art
insanity that has taken me 10 years to create. I should probably include a coupon
in the back of the book for a free therapy session... you will need it!
For the last 2 months Roberto Jaras ( from Santiago, Chile ) has been living in my
studio... he traveled here to collaborate on a book with ANGRYBLUE and myself.
60 pages of Amazing "day of the dead" inspired art... 20 totally new pieces from
each of us. Details coming soon...
Last but not least... over the next few weeks I'll be locked in the print shop turning
twisted thoughts into beautiful art prints, be scared... very scared.
