I am currently finishing up portraits from a sale that helped me get to Iceland to collect new reference material. After the portraits are complete I will be working on new work for shows in 2014. In the meantime I plan on documenting my studio practice. You can now follow me on Instagram

I am pleased to announce that the fundraiser for Iceland has surpassed the $3,500 goal! Thank you to all who have contributed. When I started this fundraiser I had no idea the goal would be met within 25 days of it's start date. I am amazed by, and grateful for everyone's support. The additional funds raised will go toward indiegogo's commission and the trip. The fundraiser will be active until July 11th. If you are still interested in purchasing a zine, prints, or custom artwork feel free to go here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/joey-bates-iceland/x/995145

Welcome to the new site!
Have a look around. A few new works have been added to the site! On the about page you can view a profile video by Christian Powers with music by Brian Cervino. A big thank you to Ashley Newcomer for the new design and all of her hard work.
In August 2013, I plan on traveling to Iceland to collect reference material for a new body of work. To make this trip a reality I am raising funds via indiegogo.com You can see my pitch video above and more information on how to donate here:
