“Portaits Of Awesomeness” Art Show Opening Mon 10/20 in Hoboken


On behalf of  Northern Soul and the Northern Soul Art Project’s curator Narciso Espiritu, Jr., I invite you to the opening reception for “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Pop-Culture Art of Craig Mahoney” on Monday, October 20th at 7pm. Nearly two dozen new, original drawings and paintings celebrating my favorites from movies, music, TV, and comedy will be on display, with most being shown publicly for the first time.

All artwork will be available for purchase. In addition, there will be drink specials, free snacks, and some of the movies and music that inspired the artwork playing throughout the night. I’m also hearing a rumor that there will be cookies. No promises, though.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys promoting other people’s work (and if you are, THANKS!), here’s the link to the facebook event page and below are some promo pics for your Instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds. Feel free to tag me on instagram (@yerolepalCraiggers) or twitter (@CraigMahoney) and hashtag it #PortraitsOfAwesomeness (Is that a long hashtag? Yes. Do I have a better idea? No. We’ll just have to live with it.).

Works In Progress: Bill Murray, Easy Rider, Pryor, Maron, Gehrig

Here are a few pieces I’m currently working on. The “Easy Rider on camels” painting and Lou Gehrig drawing are both commissions I’m finishing up, and the others are all going to be part of my upcoming solo show at the UCB East‘s Hot Chicks gallery, “Sketch(ing) Comedy”,  which will feature drawings and paintings depicting some of my favorite comedians and comedy characters and movies. Below is a work-in-progress Bill Murray painting and early sketches for Richard Pryor and Marc Maron drawings.
