Here’s a finished Indiana Jones piece for my upcoming “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Art Of A Fanboy” show opening June 7th at Boca Grande in Jersey City, plus a pair of works in progress – Luke Skywalker’s crash landing on Dagobah and a Catwoman pinup piece. Enjoy!
The “You Know? For Bad Motherf@$#ers!” group art show is currently up at Northern Soul in Hoboken, and the pieces are available for sale. A few have already been purchased, so hurry on over there to take a look at the work by myself, Dave Dziemian, Danger One Studio, and Julie McHargue. And, down a few of their many great craft beers as well.
Northern Soul is located at 557 1st St in Hoboken, in between Monroe and Madison.
Here’s a look at some of the pieces hanging:
Here are a few works in progress and concept sketches for a few of the pieces I’ll be showing in my upcoming solo show “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Art Of A Fanboy”, opening at Boca Grande in Jersey City on June 7th as part of the JC Fridays art tour.
Keep in mind that these are all very rough first sketches. I am well aware that those are not currently great likenesses of Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. I’ll update with some new pieces and further progress on these throughout the next month. So, keep coming back.
By the power of Greyskull, it’s time to pop a few power pellets, hop in the DeLorean, and phone home back to the 80′s. Because you know what ol’ Jack Burton says at times like this, it’s that Goonies never say die and knowing is half the battle.
I’m currently accepting submissions for the next group art show at Northern Soul in Hoboken. It’s a nerdy tribute to 80′s entertainment, so think John Carpenter instead of John Hughes, Jem instead of Joan Jett.
The show will open on Friday, June 14th. Submission deadline is Wednesday, June 5th. This is an open call for art, so feel free to share this with as many artists as you know.

Here are a few of the pieces I’m working on for this Friday’s group art show I’m curating at Northern Soul in Hoboken (Opening reception 6-9pm! Come on out!), “You Know? For Bad MotherF@$#ers!”, a tribute to the movies of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino.
I’m in the middle of 5 different pieces right now, and I’m hoping to crack out a 6th between Wednesday and Thursday. What I’m saying is, I’m not going to be sleeping much this week. So, I’m sure I’ll be a joy to deal with at the opening.
On the Coen side, we’ve got Anton Chigurh from “No Country For Old Man”, Ulysses Everett McGill from “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, and a cartoon of The Jesus from “The Big Lebowski”.
From Quentin, a Mr. Blonde from “Reservoir Dogs” painting, and pencils for a Gogo Yubari from “Kill Bill” pen & ink piece.
Here ya go, kids. Watch the sausage get made!
Hey, all you Basterds, Dapper Dan men, vengeful Brides, babynappers, Reservoir Dogs, and others who abide…

This is an open call, so feel free to invite any other artists you know to submit.
Thanks! I look forward to seeing your work!
Hey, kids!!! Sorry, I haven’t posted in awhile. I was sidelined by the flu, a death in the family, and trying to put together a comedy festival. You know, you’re everyday annoyances and irritations. But, that did not mean my hands remained idle here at Craig Mahoney Studios. Oh no! For this was still work to be done, and got done it indeed did.
These are all commission pieces: Mickey Mantle, Boston Heroes (Tim Thomas, Tom Brady, and David Ortiz), and Han & Chewie. Fortunately, I had a Yankee and a Star Wars painting to act as a buffer and palate cleanser for having to painting a member of the loathsome Red Sawx. ENJOY!
