DIY measuring stick

So I have been telling my kids that I would create something special for them to keep marking their heights and dates as they grow. Something to replace the age old markings on the wall, and something to keep passing along in the family for generations to come. If you know me, you know that I am NOT going to go out and buy something. So this week I found myself on a bit of a lock down due to what us locals around my city have affectionately named "Snowpocalypse 2014". Just a little bit of snow for people who are used to having it every year. But it cripples Atlanta when it does hit us(2-3inches!) Anyway, here is what I made, and what we will screw on the wall for them this week after we repaint the hallway. It was real easy to do, a few cuts from some leftover plywood, and some paint, and voila!

Art Basel 2013

So I was fortunate enough to go down to Miami this weekend and experience Art Basel for the first time. A conglomerate of amazing artists descend on South Florida every year the first week in Dec and leave some amazing murals all around the city. There is also Art Basel Beach in Collins park. Gallery shows ALL OVER the place and enough events that will have your head spinning. This event will def be the first thing going on my calender for 2014, and hopefully between now and then I can work out painting a mural with some artists I have met on IG and FB. Anyway enjoy some of my pics from an amazing weekend...

New Year, New works

Well it's February and 2014 is off and running. I recently finished my first piece of the New Year which happens to be another art envelope. I sent it to my sister who recently relocated to Costa Mesa California. It is an interpretation of Roy Lichtenstein's "Pistol" and delves into the psyche of the violence riddled country of Mexico and the grip that drug cartels seem to have on it. Here's how it turned out.

Halloween Piece

So Halloween just passed, and I had already sketched out a piece to paint. Coincidentally I almost didnt get a chance to paint it but decided at the last minute to go ahead and do it so I wouldnt regret not having done it. It was a quickie, and much smaller then I wanted to paint it but it didn't turn out so bad.

iPhone/iPod case design

Here is a pic of a recent commission job I finished. It was done for a South Carolina Gamecock fan. Hand drawn lettering scanned, cleaned up and added to photo. I like how it turned out.

Back to my roots

I'm a graff writer. Wait, I know what you might be saying, "oh he's a vandal", or "a tagger", or even "he's a street artist"(btw street art and graffiti are 2 totally different things, but we'll save that for another time); coincidentally I am also a street artist. But there is more to this art that I grew up learning from some amazing people I got to hang out with in Southern California. It's been a while since I picked up a can for a piece, but lately I have been missing it. So when this truck came in to the scrap yard I work at, I asked if I could paint it. My employers were gracious enough to oblige. Here are some progress pics, and I should be done in the next few days. enjoy!


from concept to reality

More Progress!

Here's the finished product, plus some closeups!

Happy Bday banner

Last week a friend turned 30! So I painted a banner for her party, something people could take pictures in front of. it was a quickie, and I just used what paint I had at the house. I like how it turned out tho.
