At the end of night, we should have 4 pieces that will be available for sale.

New art experiments… Mayan jaguar

For a long time now, I have had an interest in researching pre-Hispanic and early Mesoamerican art. Specifically glyphs, murals, cave art, and stone carvings. This Mayan jaguar you see is one of my first explorations into this territory. Keeping with time period colors, I rolled with their use of rust, bone white, and teal. Many animals were celebrated in these cultures, so this is just one of many to come. I am very excited to continue on with this line of exploration.

Here is a sample of the fantastic reference material I’ve been collecting.

Of note, I did my Mayan jaguar piece for an event called Comida, the 2nd Annual Latin Culinary Arts Experience. www.comidakc.com

Proceeds to benefit the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City and the Greater Kansas City Hispanic Collaborative.

Honorary Chef: Michael Smith. Comida showcased 12 chefs, 2 restaurateurs, and 8 Mixologists – all of which create contemporary interpretations of traditional dishes and libations from a variety of Latin cultures.

Hearts art auction for charity tonight!

Come out and help with a great cause, approximately 170 local and nationally recognized dope artists will be reppin “hearts” with their custom art work tonight… and oh my, all will surely be available for purchase! I did 2 pieces and my sweetie daughter did 1 piece!

So here’s the quick skinny, in case you find urself here wondering what all this talk of “hearts” is all about. It’s basically a silent art auction on Dec 5th @ the VML Wise gallery near 2019 Baltimore right in the heart of the Crossroads. Over 170 hearts will be available, a wood cutout that each artist took and crafted in their own medium. So sum artists used paint, some used clay to mold pieces, and yet sum glued found objects onto the 12″x16″ wood surface of 1/2″. This is one show NOT to be missed, def worth your time and effort and contribute to a good cause all at once!

Shout out to Scribe, he is the brainchild behind this massively successful event, thank you for having a deep vision to help so many families thru garnering collaboration amongst so many talented local & national cats!

Live painted this for Evo launch in KC

Yellow girl, blue hair in jungle leafy goodness

Live Painted this at EVO launch event.

Hustlin 300MPH it seems for several weeks straight now, feels good to be so active but dragging a bit on my social media posts. Ok so I got asked to do a live painting for an event this past Monday, Sept 22nd for a high-end hair care product line called Evo at a local bar Tank Room. Basically had 3hrs to bang on something and I wanted the focus to be girls hair, so I chose a composition never done before. Felt good 2 take risk in such a public setting. Painted this on 24″x36″ wood surface, and the company owner bought my piece at end of night!

Customized wood shaped hearts with art

Wood shaped hearts customized by artists for charity

Going to this here in a few hours to jam on a “heart” for charity. Gonna be fun to slay this one, as I got two hours realistically. Just really honored to be in the room with all this talent that I can mingle and peek over at while my stuff is drying. You can bet I will be drooling and mouthbreathing tonight as I gaze and blaze.

This is a series of get togethers between all kinds of artists, many I can call friends. The goal is to raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital and specifically towards “out patient services” a worthy cause and I am happy to help CMH further. Also of note, I am doing another event for CMH called Art for Arthritis next week on Sept 26th. I will post deets here, sheesh I update my Facebook more than I do here. Ridiculous really! Gotta roll out now…

Been so busy hustlin just now posting

jungle leaves golden armsOk so I feel like I just came outta hibernating, been focusing on my art goals and realized I need to update my blog. Ridiculous really as I have the WordPress app on my phone, sheesh, anyhow onto all the good news. Been super busy helping out charities and good causes, just make it and trust enough to give it away on the spot often times. This I like. Exhilarating performing without hesitation.

Ok so, here is a piece I did for a personal friend that asked me to live-paint and help raise funds for domestic violence. A very beautiful night in support of Rose Brooks Center a domestic violence shelter here in greater KCMO. I got to live paint to my friend Vania, who is full on Bach & Beethoven skilled, and another Russian opera singer joined in. Oh my it was intense! Felt like I was in my own personal Radiohead song for the duration of all the orange line work. Not kidding ya, I went to another place when her vocals kicked in! Ok so, I had about 1hr to slay this 18×24 canvas and this is the result. Very happy to say that it sold for $400 and it felt nice to be able to generate that kinda loot with one hour of my time.
