If you were a child of the 80's (or 90's), then you've probably seen, or at least heard of a little movie called CRITTERS. I take that back, if you are ALIVE at all, and watch movies, then you've probably at least seen this movie, or walked in at your friends house while they were watching it, and thought "wow, this is stupid as fuck" or have the thought that I had when I first saw it, which was "HOLY FUCK, THIS IS AMAZING!" What's not to love about furry little, basketball sized, carnivorous alien monster balls that roll around and travel in teams and shoot furry spikes and eat anything in their path. As a horror movie fan (and lover),I live for this stuff, and this movie is extremely close to my heart. I grew up on movies like Friday The 13th and Halloween, and a long list of others. But when I discovered this, it made my imagination go berserk. These things were sort of cute, in a hideous, slimy way, but they were awful and terrifying at first look. I only recently got my hands on a DVD copy, but watching it on tv and vhs when i was a kid really made me excited and wonder in awe "how the hell did they make these things move around!"
And so, to honor the hideous and fun characters of the movie, I created a new limited edition art print that fans can hopefully enjoy!
The print is 13x16, and printed on Velvet Fine Art Paper
An edition of 200. Comes signed and numbered in CRITE blood and icecream. (I wish)
And will be available SATURDAY, JUNE 2nd at NOON eastern time on aaroncrawfordart.com
I hope if you are as big of a fan of this movie that I am, you will enjoy this, and maybe go back and rewatch and have nightmares and laugh a lot.

Thanks to my good friend, and photographer Evan Grantski, and his shadow lurking, ninja like reflexes, he crawled and jumped around to snag a few more strikingly beautiful photos from last Wednesdays Drink and Doodle event held in Atlanta, GA at ABV Gallery. Can't wait to take part in another one ( hopefully the next one :) ) There's always some amazing artists involved, and so many new talents popping up in and around the Atlanta area, it melts your brain! Check these out photos out, and make your eyes gleam with joy. *all photos by Evan Grantski. Find out more about his photography at http://evangrantskiphoto.com/ http://abvatl.com/

Every couple weeks at ABV Gallery in Atlanta, GA, artist Greg Mike and his crew hold a gathering of artists to sit around eachother at a table and create smaller 8x10 pieces of art from beginning to end, and then the piece goes up for sale / display at the end of the night. This was the second one I participated in, and it's always a blast getting to meet new people, meet fans (in person) and draw and have fun with friends. Here's my contribution to the show, Along with a few other photos. Thanks to Greg and the ABV Gallery team for having me! Here's a collection of photos from the show, plus our fun visit to my buddy Jason Hodges' studio, Undead Forest, where he makes masks and builds monsters. Amazing! The Atlanta Scalper, on the loose again.

I kept getting asked via instagram why I never post a step by step process of my inking, so I decided to document briefly, a commission piece I was working on today for a shirt design. Mustache freak! Check it out. Also, if you have instagram, please follow me at "aaroncrawford" and say hi! Here's the photos:

I recently released volume 2 of my In Through The Mouth mini art book, which contains 20 pages of full color art by myself, and fellow artist and friend, Erik Russel! I decided it would be cool to not only just showcase my art, but also start collaborating with other artists on each issue (whenever they do come out) and help other artists reach a broader audience via little mini books of doodles and paintings. Word! You can order VOLUME 2 here through my company: questionfurther.com
