CITY JUNGLE

Is an attempt to beautify our dull grey urban landscape with huge colorful leaves and flowers seeming to spring to life out from street level. Painted directly onto the metal rails of a common security gate, the image only fully reveals itself to unsuspecting pedestrians at certain angles.

Best Of Show

Yeah nice one, riiiight? I agree as I was surprised to win an award from the annual Latino Art  Bravisimo show back in 2010, I was honored to accept and got a sweet gold ribbon to prove it.

Jungle Leaves

Nature and floral elements have been a part of art work for a long time, but its only been within recent years where I made these leafy elements the main attraction and not just a visual backdrop to a character piece.

Little Creepers

Well what can I say about this little creepers? I am into Japanese art and was inspired by the block printing look of the water waves and reformulated into this “noodle” shape you see. I swap out the eyes and mouth expressions to amuse myself.

Previous Art Shows

It occurred to me that friends and fans have missed out previous art shows, so this is my attempt to create a section of my site where you can catch up as I have created mini-galleries and have tried to recapture the essence of each show.

RIP-ON Skatepark live painting

RIP-ON Skatepark live painting

Come see me live painting with friends and various scallywags in the skatepark at 21st & Washburn in Topeka, KS on 6/24 Saturday from 3p til 9p. I started a piece last weekend and will be completing my “mouthbreather” creation tomorrow and also spazzin and creating more art pieces as the skatepark has plenty of room to get down. Excited to chop it up with some old school friends, and am happy to be painting something in my hometown where i grew up. Yeah i know, i know, king of the late post, too busy hustlin & jugglin life issues lately.

Live painting for a good cause

Each year I try to include several charities into my efforts, usually I live paint something to be auctioned off with all proceeds going to benefit victims. This year a new charity presented itself and i’ll be live painting at a rad event sponsored by Children’s Mercy Hospital, Quixotic will perform, and catered by Taco Republic. Flat out, I cannot pull $1,000 dollars out of my pocket, but I can take $100 of raw materials and 2hrs later have created sum sweet art that people got to see created live!

Garage door goodness!

Had a blast taking advantage of the gorgeous February warm weekend weather and just had to get out and paint. Can design at the computer any day, such a good call to do a quick burner in Art Alley with friends. Basically gave myself 2hrs to chop & burn on this garage door, buffed it out and then sprayed in my mountains to create atmosphere. Had been wanting to do one of my noodle monsters floating thru mountains for a while now and decided on a stoner noodle, ha ha ha! Awwwwww yeeeahz!

Skateboard group show benefiting Children’s Mercy Hospital


Grateful to help out for a great cause, come on out to Escapist Skateboarding for a great group show & charity auction. This is your chance to own custom art by many recognized artists for a fraction of what you would ordinarily pay! You will have 1hr to bid or forever gnash your teeth! 

Here is the board I made, did up some mouthbreathing noodles, awwww yeah!

Dia de Los Muertos

What a busy and fun DDLM month, wow it was a whirlwind, Three art shows and a rad group art installation at the incredible Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art with so many talented friends. I am humbled and grateful for all the great energy shared and created during this short span of time. Overall there were 100 sugar skulls on display. Here are a few pics, please enjoy!




My daughter’s sugar skull is on the left, and mine is on the right. We had a blast creating these!

Burn Ur Soul – art show


BURN UR SOUL is a collaborative art show with nationally recognized Burn353 and myself VisualSoul on Aug 5th First Friday at Mod Gallery in the Crossroads Arts District. Burn353 is in town from Illinois just for this show, he is a true multi-disciplinary artist with skills encompassing street art, wood fabrication, and custom character creation.

We will have plenty of art for sale and at ready to move prices, as I am making art on paper and other works specifically to get into collectors hands. This is one show not to be missed, as both Burn353 and myself will be hibernating and focusing on shows for 2017. Sure we will put a piece into a group show here or there for the remaining of 2016, but you won’t see a room full of our art like this show on August 5th!

Lucha Libre group show tonight

Come out to Mattie Rhodes Art Gallery for a cool Luchador art show tonight. I got one piece in the show and will be lingering around the venue this evening, lots of art going on, so hopping to several spots.
