Just completed a painting. It’s a mural about eleven feet tall and twenty something feet long. I haven’t measured the length. It just looks about twice as long as the height. It’s a landscape. Or it’s not. Whichever’s funnier. Acrylic … Continue reading

This drawing I did when I was very young, maybe 17 or 18, reminds me of a hilarious advert. I can’t find the pic online, so I’m going to see if I saved it somewhere and take a pic myself. … Continue reading

A painting for my friend, Andrew Bowsher. This dude is such a badass. Hope you’re doing well, old friend.
A mural I did for Pipe’s Plus on the “Drag” in Austin, TX. A gesture of God’s hand that seems to say “Hook ‘em” and “Rock unto thee” as well. That’s my friend Ryan who works down there. If you … Continue reading

This is my high school art teacher, Mr. Woody circa ’96 or ’97, personifying America. He’s turning his back on a world in crisis. He reads about it in the news paper, right in front of him. What an idealist … Continue reading
