Illustrations Vol. 1 recap

The opening night of “illustrations Vol. 1″ at Slow Culture Highland Park went off without a hitch, with tons of new and old friends dropping by to see everyones work. I was (and still am) excited to paint the intro wall, as I am trying to paint as large scale as possible these days…



.. but was equally pleased with the way my new serigraph print (which is available on my webstore now!) came out, especially when adding my drip pattern to the 1st 10 then framing and hanging them.




If youre in the Los Angeles Area, you can drop by Slow Culture Gallery and see it for yourself, the show will be up for a few more weeks.

and heres a little sneak peek…..





so much….



Have been keeping busy (opening up a gallery, slow culture, with some friends, doing some rad new freelance, making pottietang inspired art for gallery 1988,  printing zines, making new product, keeping #stayweirdforever going, sounding like a jerk in interviews), but am realizing i’m losing touch of why I left my day job: ART. I have some stuff in the works (actual personal art projects, which have been rare) that I can’t wait to share, and will be posting up some process videos. Thank you to everyone who has supported me (both by picking up product or just sending a friendly email), I hope the next slew of blog-junk is as enjoyable to you as it is to me.
(also, I had no idea I shot that photo of my shoes, found it in my phone. I was trying to shoot a photo of a cool cargo aerostar van. Well, cool to me.)


more burgers!


That W.I.P from a few posts down is finally all done! Made a small batch of these T shirts. Instead of going the usual thick bulty t shirt route, these are a little slimmer, a little lighter, and a lot softer. I went with discharge ink instead of plastisol, which in non print-nerd talk means its not heavy ink and actually breathes.

Check it out with the SHOP link on your left, thanks for all your support!


quickie process!

Quick GIf detailing steps for this flyer I put together for Tittsworth.
It’s pretty nice to have someone say “go nuts” on a design.

Slowly refilling the store with new merch, hope you guys are into what I have in store!





This is the last haul from my last office. Thought it was kinda fitting for the adventures that are about to happen!


big ol’ pizza

Zach Marshall put together a quick video of me painting a big ass slice of pizza at The Hundreds warehouse. Click play at your own risk.

sorry, nerd break over.


burger week, aka my favorite holiday.

If you don’t live in southern California (or obsessively follow burger/pizza news like I do), you probably haven’t heard of burger week. During burger week The Oinkster in Eagle Rock, Ca, serves up their own version of classic burgers, but each is only available for 1 day. I was lucky enough to draw up the burgers for this years, but also the uber-rare t shirt you get for conquering all 7 days of burger week. If for some reason you’ve never heard of Guns n Roses, its based off of their classic Appetite for Destruction tour shirt, with “tour dates” for each burger on the back.  If you’re in the area… why aren’t you there now??
