Feb Denver Show

"Eye in the Sky"

"The Beasts Are Taking Over"

"We're All Prey Now"



"The Patrol"

"El Futuro del Transporte 2"

"Big Brother"

"El Futuro del Transporte 3"

"El Futuro del Transporte"

These are pieces I made recently, originally intended for a show put on by Mike Broberg of the Birdseed Collective in Denver. The pieces are all collage done on glass or plexi, with work done on each side to give the pieces more depth than a traditional 2 dimensional piece. The pieces called "Creation" and "Destruction" were worked on by the very talented Phil Garrison.
When it became apparent that shipping these works would be too expensive, I instead took photos of each piece and made single edition prints from them for the show. Therefore, the originals are all still available, and will be viewable at another upcoming show at the Goodfoot in Portland. The opening for that show is scheduled for the last Thursday of May. However, anyone interested in purchasing an original before that show can contact me for more details.

Here are a few of the pieces I included in the big 100 show this year, the first two are done with black ink on metallic paper, the other four are woodburned pieces. They are all sold.

A few new things

Ok, so I've been a little bad about taking pics of new things I've been doing. But here's a couple. The first image is a screenprint I made with Phil Garrison. The second is a painting from a sketch.

Love Show

This is the piece I did for the 5th annual Love Show presented by the Launch Pad Gallery. It opens Friday, February 12th at the Olympic Mills Center, located at 107 SE Washington St in Portland, OR. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Zimbabwe Artists Project, the American Red Cross, and the Haiti Relief Fund.

Here's another mural I just did. For this one they had a very specific idea of what they wanted.

This is a mural I just finished. It was for a little boy named Milo who loves the Yellow Submarine. His mom asked me to paint a large replica of the Beatles' Yellow Sub above his bed, and in the enclosed area underneath she wanted it to look like a playful version of the inside of a submarine. It was very challenging because the area is only about 2 ft tall by about 6 ft long. Milo was very happy with it.

Random Sketches

These are some sketches I did. They were all used for one project or another. The bottom one was for a cd cover, the next one up for a valentine coupon, the third for a large painting, and the last one for another painting.

Bishop's Hair Salon Mural

This is a mural I was commissioned to paint inside of Bishop's hair salon on NW 10th and Everett in the Pearl district in Portland. The animal heads were already there and the owner wanted to leave them up, so I had to work around them. It was very challenging to come up with something to work with them. The mural is finished, but I need to get some pictures of it. I will update this blog when I do.
