Most of last month was spent in the studio, preparing this large commission piece for a client in my home state.  Drawing inspiration from key local features, the mural depicts the natural life of the area and references unique aspects of New Mexico’s history.

Coyotes and jackrabbits are common, perfectly suited to the dry climate and the earthy tones of the landscape. The sandhill crane flies south from breeding grounds in Canada, Alaska, and Siberia to winter in the wetlands surrounding the Rio Grande, their presence an elegant signal of the transition of the seasons. The abstracted landscape references tangible and conceptual elements of local history and geography, including the dynamic flash floods of the monsoon season and the importance of the Santa Fe Railroad and later, Route 66.

This was a really enjoyable project that honestly left me feeling a little homesick. Done on four panels for a total size of 192″x72″, it’s a big one. See the details in the Installations section.

I’m back in Oakland after my recent mural project in Boulder, CO and wanted to share some progress shots by Lauren Click. I’d like to send a big, big thanks to Arts Martin Acres and & Art Space for putting this project together. Special thank you to my awesome host Colin, shouts to the lovely Kat Rutter who busted out a beautiful mural just down the path from mine, and thanks to all the folks who offered compliments and thank-you’s as they passed by. Check it out on the Bear Creek Path, below Moorhead Ave. Check back for photos of the finished piece!

Feeling pretty happy about my latest mural project in Albuquerque, located at Sister Bar. I’d like to send a huge thanks to Zeus and his crew for inviting me into their space and for the chance to put this image up on a wall.  Unfortunately time constraints got in the way of mural #2 but I’d still like to also thank JP and everyone involved with the 508 Mural Fest for all their hard work. Can’t wait for next year!

After stockpiling drawings for a couple years, I’ve finally gotten around to compiling the next volume of Night Songs. A selection from an ongoing series exploring the visual language of iconography and archetypes, inspired by traditional tattoo flash, Vol. 2 features 38 pages of drawings from 2015-2017 printed in full color.

While there is no single narrative thread running through the work, recurring themes of loss, betrayal, struggle, and redemption present themselves, inviting the viewer to connect the dots and create their own storyline. Depictions of mythical beasts and mental landscapes exist alongside enigmatic relics and veiled social commentary, tracing lines of complexity and contradiction.

Night Songs Vol. 2 will be available for pre-order starting Monday, August 14. Two options are available: $15 Pre-Order includes a sticker pack and a 4″x6″ screenprint, the $20 Deluxe Package includes stickers, screenprint, and a limited edition 24 oz. Koozie. Get yours here >

A little throwback from last year’s mural project at Zendo Coffee in Albuquerque, video by my old friend Phil Flux at Concept Flux. I’m gearing up for another project in Duke City this fall as part of the 1st Annual 508 Mural Fest, more details to come…
