As October begins and Halloween approaches, thoughts turn to everything dark and creepy. I always forget about this painting from 2011 that was to start a series of interiors based on famous locales from horror films. This is the entryway from the main house in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Unfortunately this was the only one … Read More
Along with streamlining this website I’m feeling a necessary consolidation of my artistic practice. How can I shift my process to produce a result that has a more focused purpose?

I’m extremely honored to have been included in the latest edition of The Wes Anderson Collection “Bad Dads” from Spoke Art and Abrahms Books. My painting ‘Foxes At Night’ is in there as a full page spread! It’s available online and at bookstores nationwide starting Tuesday August 9th.

Here’s a detail of a piece just completed and varnished. It’s so satisfying to get back to larger paintings. The background is one I’ve painted before but much smaller. One of my favorite corners in the Tenderloin. Acrylic on canvas.
‘La Casa Cosmica’ was painted for the 6 Year Anniversary show Simply Frida at Wonderland in San Francisco. All works we’re naturally tributes to Frida Kahlo and I wanted combine the look of atomic era “propaganda” art with a space background and morphing Frida’s iconic hair flowers into a bloom of nebulas. Opens July 16th … Read More
Stoked to get my hands on a fresh copy of Statements Magazine Volume 3 with my art on the cover plus a six page interview inside. I think the magazine is mainly available around SoCal but I’ll drop some stacks around SF. Thanks to @rrussell240 @sambernal
