This week I had a great shoot with Paper City Magazine for an upcoming article this year. The shoot was quick and easy.
Big thanks to Catherine @PaperCityCA and Sara @Kenektid PR!
I was finally able to stop by Avis Frank Gallery to take pics of my recent mural. I tried some new things with this painting that I liked and some things that I didn’t. I took a few videos during the process and I’m hoping to put something together once I find the time.
I recently received this rad gift from Houston artist, Coolidge. I finally found a place for it in my studio. You can find more Coolidge work here.
The Menzingers is a band that I just can’t go a day without listening to. Blasting their music as I’m working is always a must. They are currently on tour and just played here in Houston over the weekend. I was able to put together a tube of poster design concepts together for the band and was able to give them to the guys before they left. I’m looking forward to working with these guys soon.
More words next time
Creating an art installation for FPSF had to be a fast process this year due to the very short deadline. I only had a couple days to come up with an idea and paint as fast as I could. I went through some old sketchbooks and used a familiar face from a past illustration. I was able to film a little of the process during the day I painted and put together this video.
Recently someone sent this really cool portrait of me in front of my mural at Lawndale Art Center. Painting at Lawndale was a fun experience and this is still one of my favorite pieces. Thanks D for the pic!

Just like film and animation, music is something that I have always loved creating whenever I have the time. Expression through music is such a different experience than through art. Some days I prefer it. Thoughout the year I write about an album worth of songs and then I set time aside to record them all in December. I record all the instruments and vocals by myself here at home. I’ve been recording these albums for the past five years . Other than myself these songs are not heard by anyone. They are just something I have always done as a creative outlet. This year I decided that I may just put all the songs online for those who want to hear them.
