I curated an unique tribute album that just came out.
It features new tracks by BUZZY LINHART, DANIEL DAVIES (son of KINKS Dave Davies), BOSS MARTIANS,
DAVID GREENBERGER, CHARLIE BURTON, MYTHOLOGICAL HORSES, and more!
It also has a 16 page comic inside. Get it only from me, signed and numbered.
A TRIBUTE TO BAD LYRICS.
"Pat Moriarity put this together; I only mastered it...
but while doing so I slowly came to the realization that this is the
GREATEST RECORD EVER MADE BY HUMANS."
-- Jack Endino (producer of NIRVANA's record BLEACH)
A bunch of my posters and art were featured in episode two of Showtime's WEEDS.

I should have posted this last week when the show started, but I've been busy...
This show of political art is in the Burnley Gallery at the Seattle Art Institute.
I've got a selection of political and editorial cartoons in it,
plus they chose to use a piece of mine for the postcard, invite, program and poster.
I originally drew this Uncle Sam cartoon in Sept 2001,
after being asked to contribute to a book about 9-11 by Dark Horse Comics.
The curators removed the word balloon and put their art show info in there instead.
The opening was an overloaded success!

CHECK IT OUT!!
The last one there, the “Golden Toonie”, is a coveted award given out by CARTOONISTS NORTHWEST,
voted on by other professional cartoonists. It's an honor I take seriously, because there are a lot of great cartoonists
(with ties to the Northwest) in which to choose from! Past winners include giants like Berkely Breathed, Shary Flenniken,
David Horsey, Lynn Johnston, Ellen Forney, Peter Bagge, and Jim Woodring.

The awesome music magazine YOURflesh is now officially an online affair. Back in the 1980's,
a young fiesty Peter Davis was the first to recognize the peculiar genius and potential of a fledgling young scribblemeister,
giving me my earliest feature illustration gigs. Peter was possibly the first person to publish my cartoons.
So here, from their online cover gallery, is my first ever mag cover.
The color was all done with rubylith film, red line tape and an exacto knife!
Your flesh, sir.

DEAD BATTERIES THAT REALLY WORK
I have designed some AA size batteries for a website called www.deadbatteries.com
My “corrupt police officer” battery generated some hate mail that they posted. You can buy the batteries, and they really work well.
They're the coolest! Here's the cop design....

Rock legend Buzzy Linhart has a great new website,
and he's posted an old comic strip I did about him, from 1987!
He's posted the entire 14 page story.
“Artist Trust Board Vice President Larry Stapleton, his wife Jerrol Golden,
are graciously hosting Artist Trust Fellowship Recipient Patrick Moriarity (guest of honor)
for a intimate salon and dinner at Larry and Jerrol's home. There will be a lively presentation by Pat,
and your support will be requested to help Artist Trust continue its mission of supporting art at its source: the individual artist.”

Yikes! I haven't updated this thing in a while!
A bunch of stuff happened, I just didn't report it here.
Actually, this is the first time I've tried to do this updating without tech help.
As of now, I'll try to be more up to date, I promise!
Let's see, what's gone down in my career in the last TWO years? Well, I DID go to NYC in Nov 2004
and was a juror for the Society of Illustrators, it was a total blast, and I met several artists and friends.
I went to the Austin Texas premiere of DERAILROADED in March 2005 at the SXSW film festival.
It was also quite an experience. The room was full, there were Qs and As afterward,
and I was recognized and applauded by the audience as the animator. I like Austin!
I saw some great music too.
Anyway, Rubin and Lubin made a great movie. It’s close to DVD time.
The latest release of Charlie burton, this time with the Dorothy Lynch Mob,
has an all Moriarity cartoon package, with a booklet and a three minute animation as part of the enhanced CD.
Go to www.charlieburton.net for details on this gem!
This is cool- In the trailer to the documentary BORN INTO THIS, about Charles Bukowski,
they start talking about how Buk hated Mickey Mouse, as it shows a few panels of MY Bukowski art,
spliced right in there in the same trailer, and it’s BEFORE Bono and Sean Penn. Ha Ha! See, look it's right here-
Bukowski- Born into This
There's some other stuff to report, but I'll get back to this...
....After having three pieces accepted and displayed in the
ILLUSTRATORS 46th exhibition in NYC in 2004, the chairman of the next
upcoming exhibition (and a commitee of past chairs) asked me,
the humble Pat Moriarity, to be a juror in the 47th exhibition. Yow! The Society of
Illustrators was founded in 1901, and has been attended by Mark Twain....
....Upcoming artshow at the Metropolis gallery in Bremerton
first Friday in August 2004.
....The documentary DERAILROADED, is near completion.
It is about the life of Larry Wildman Fischer, and has a unique animation sequence done by Pat Moriarity.
This will prove to be an interesting movie, with appearances by Mark Motherbaugh, Bill Mumy, Dr. Demento,
Dennis P. Eichhorn, Weird Al Yankovich, and Larry himself.
Directed by Josh Rubin and Jeremy Lubin. More on this as it develops....
....A short movie has been shot based on a comic story in
BIG MOUTH #3.
"The Pickup", written by Mary Fleener and storyboarded by Pat Moriarity, was made into a ten minute
black and white movie directed by David Miller. It was shot in Seattle in September and the wrap party is October 4th, 2003....
....The Von Zippers THE CRIME IS NOW! cd which was released
on Estrus Records
will now be a gatefold 12" lp (on a label in Germany)....
....The story "Fish Scales" from BIG MOUTH #1 is being reprinted in color for the upcoming book REAL STUFF....
