I made this trunk out of an old hand painted sign I found in the trash. I think it turned out pretty alright.
New special board up! These are super fun to make.
I’ve been working nonstop trying to finish building the studio, so most of the stuff i’ve had a chance to work on is quick doodles and drawings. Fun stuff though. Here’s a couple…
been messing around with some design, YEE HAW!
some more doodlins goin down. watercolor and markers on found paper.
Hey there! So as you can see, I have a brand new shiny mega official web site full of messes, adventure, squiggles and magic. I’m glad you stopped by to have yourself a gander. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for posting stuff lately, things have been mega hectic, but I think I’m almost all back on track. I’m currently finishing totally revamping a mega crusty old garage at our house and turning it into a full on art studio thanks to the help of my super hero friend Teve. My other amazing friend Ryan Parrish has been helping me put this website together, over a few late nights and plenty of beers, so thank you for that homie, I still owe you bigtime. I’ve had my hands full with plenty of projects but I’ve been in full hibernation mode for a while trying to take care of business. Everything is coming together now and many good things are in the works, so take a poke about the site & check back often as i will be updating it regularly and gradually snazzing it up a bit with bells and whistles, working out the bugs and even adding shop section as well.
-Fucking stoked on life & everything is groovy.
Over the last handful of years, my friend andy and i have painted our friend ashleys’ mini ramp that takes up her whole garage in many, many layers of decorative nonsense. she recently commissioned me to do a big painting for the inside of her house and i thought it would be a cool theme to take all of the years worth of ramp painting and put all the characters and ideas together into one giant, colorful, nearly seizure inducing mess of whimsical ridiculousness. i’m pretty stoked on how it turned out, and here’s some pics of it. 48 in. X 48 in. one shot, spray paint, latex and marker on custom built wood canvas.

and finally, if anyone is going to be in chicago on Dec 2, i’ll be part of what sounds to be a pretty epic group artshow at the maxwell colette gallery called “text, drugs, and rock and roll. 908 N. Ashland Ave, chicago, IL.
(assignment no. 10)
Measures: 13in” x 9in”
it looks like the ramp i painted made it onto the thrasher website. pretty stoked.
whew. what a month… thank you guys so much for coming down to the artshow and showing such an overwhelming amount of support. all of the positive feedback was incredibly inspiring, and a special thank you to those of you who picked up artwork. It was such a whirlwind of an evening I managed to forget to take any photos of the show. This has seriously been one of the busiest months of my life -so i’m going to sit on the couch and enjoy a cold brew while i finally post some flicks of new paintings. so here’s a couple -more soon
