The Gorilla Sticker recently turned 10 years old and to commemorate the time gone by I thought it fitting to do a new painting of my orange partner in crime.

10th Anniversary Painting Includes T-shirt & 10-Pack of Stickers
BIG GORILLA THANKS
In 2003 I packed up a Uhaul and headed West on a one-way trip with my dog and shoebox full of newly designed stickers. As I crossed the country I let the orange beast loose into the world for the first time, leaving him at nearly every stop as I meandered for two weeks from Milwaukee to San Diego. A decade later the Orange Gorilla now lives all over the world in one form or another (maniacal laugh). That of course couldn’t have happened without you, so a big shout out to the Gorilla Nation for all the ape-tastic support over the past decade. You’ve helped keep alive the dream of seeing the world overrun by an army of apes…or something like that. Many thanks. -Jimmy

Closeups of corner and texture
In late 2009 I started a group of multi-paneled paintings called the Retrograde Series. The paintings are an exploration of the memories, questions, sights, sounds, and tastes of my youth, and their juxtaposition against each other, and the world around me decades later. “Rolo Retrograde” is the continuation/evolution of that series, and the first piece in a brand new body of work.
