When it comes to his art, Maas often looks to Jodi for approval, and she isn't afraid to tell him his monsters need work -- that Nosferatu's head doesn't quite look right.

"It's nice to have someone you can trust and not who will just say, `Oh, that looks great, honey,'" Maas says, adding that people are finally understanding his work. While the recognition is nice, Maas says, he doesn't want too much attention. He'd like his work to remain a little punk rock.

"When punk started, everyone was like, `This would be so cool if it were on the radio,' and now it's on the radio and it sucks," he says.

"I don't want my art to suck."

Three pieces from "Saints and Ain'ts" will show Friday, August 6, from 7 to 10 p.m., through the end of the month, at Coach & Willie's, 412 South Third Street in Phoenix.
