Throwback Thursday: A version of the Remission horse that I made originally for a shirt design for Mastodon’s first tour of Japan (circa 2003). Japanese woodblock prints have long been an influence on my work; in particular Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi. This panel now appears in the reissue of Remission available @relapserecords. I’ve always loved that album and it was great to have the opportunity to reconsider my work from over a decade ago. 

Also, I made a screen print of this back in 2009. Some are still available over at:

My friend Caitlin’s (@mister_caitlin) show, Interhaven, opens this evening @paradigmgs (746 S 4th St. Phila.). Her lattice remains of creatures great and small, fill the room with an overwhelming yet quiet resonance. If you are close to Philly, the show is a must see.  #caitlinmccormack  #interhaven  #rehearsalforextinceanatomies (at Paradigm Gallery + Studio)

Patrick, @pshillen and I took Leviathan on a little trip tonight over to @archenemyarts. I enjoyed seeing it again out of its overly heavy frame. It has been a decade since I made this painting (48x48”, oil on linen). Time truly does fly. I will have some stuff in the works for this anniversary. More details soon. Repost of me putting it in place from Patrick’s IG. #leviathan #paulromano (at Arch Enemy Arts)

Flashback Friday: Self portrait I took in the bone room @muttermuseum back when I worked there. I am guessing this is circa 1993 or so. I had really long hair here that I would twist and spiral up into a hat everyday. I spent a good deal of time in that room, drawing away. At the time, there were an estimated 4000 specimens packed in there - heavenly. #skeletonsinthecloset #90sfashion #muttermuseum #fbf

Tiny Death II. Ink & Charcoal. Another for this year’s #tinytrifecta @thecottoncandymachine. I wish I could have been in the campout line two days ago. There are so many pieces I covet:
@nopunchbacks (Kelly Denato), @marcomazzoniart, @loribrooklyn (Lori Nelson) just to name a few. #paulromano #tinydeath #belovedhome
