Its shaping up to be a very busy year for Groundscore Collective, so we’ve partnered with our friends at LeQuiVive Gallery to take on larger, more involved projects, projects with the potential to dramatically transform the visual environment of the communities where these murals are located. We’re also turning to our community and asking for your help – have a share in the transformation of your environment and help facilitate the growth of locally driven public art initiatives.
In exchange for your support, we are offering you the opportunity to bring some of this amazing art into your home or business, in the form of limited edition t-shirts, tote bags, prints, and original works of art from Brett Flanigan, Cannon Dill, Ernest Doty, Koleo, Zio Ziegler and myself… Please visit our Kickstarter page to learn more and get involved, we’d love for you to be a part of this.
Check back for a big announcement about a big project on Wednesday, presented by LeQuiVive Gallery and Groundscore Collective and featuring the likes of Brett Flanigan, Cannon Dill, Ernest Doty, Koleo, Zio Ziegler and myself…
A few images from a recent mural project, my first in San Francisco. The mural features UK artist Ben Slow, who battled dehydration and killer sunburn to smash out this amazing portrait in 3 days (!!!) as well as my friend and studio mate ESK Evan Wilson. Thanks to Lauren Napolitano and the gang at White Walls SF for their help in making it happen and to 16th&Broadway Photography for shooting these photos for the SF Bay Guardian, who used them for this week’s cover.
Hopefully we can get Ben back out here soon, he was a pleasure to work with and is doing big things in London. I’ll be showing at Le Qui Vive Gallery in Oakland with Evan this July, stay tuned for more info on that and check out some images of the finished mural below.
Here’s the full length video from Grounded TV, big thanks to Syd Woodward and Christine Peterson for their work on this, I’m really excited with how it turned out. Please take a minute and check it out…
A couple more new pieces currently on display at Blackball Universe Studios, showing this month with Chaves Smith. If you missed the opening there is another reception on Friday, April 19th, more information here.
A peek at some new work I’ll be showing next Friday, April 5th alongside my good buddy Chaves Smith at Blackball Universe Studios. The opening is from 6-9pm, with the show running through the month of April. Chaves is an old friend from my hometown of Las Cruces and is a creative powerhouse, in his words: “I’m a 25-year-old vagabond dancing with danger. Pure energy and carnal passion are driving forces in my creativity…” Come get a taste next Friday, I’ll be showing new work as well as a handful of new prints will be available.
After putting it off for months, I finally got around to doing some screenprints on the custom wood panels we make at Faultline Artspace. This is a signed, numbered edition of 43, 3 color screenprint on 8″ x 10″ wood panel, and will be going for $50 each. For purchasing information please contact me.
Just completed this one for our spring group show at Faultline Artspace. This is the first piece I’ve done in years at this size and level of detail, it was a difficult couple months but really worth it in the end. If you’re in the Bay Area, please pay us a visit to see it on person, along with new work from ESK Evan Wilson, Alan Grizzell, Marcos Lafarga, Jon Carling, Joshua Mays, and Mario Navasero.

Painted at an undisclosed location in the North Bay. I’ve been working with Syd Woodward of Grounded TV on a short video documentary about my work that should be out in the next month, check back for a teaser soon.
