im nephew just turn 16 and he got himself a crx. seeing his car made me miss my crx. it was my first car. i think crx is a perfect first car because they are cheap and clean. my nephew car is too flashy for my taste. reminds me of a batmobile. the silver crx is a before and after it got stolen.

2 finished illustrations. type is going to be on the top of the green piece, so i wanted to keep that area as clean as possible.
i usually don't show illustrations in a gallery setting because it's a bit too narrative and too art directed. but I think these might work in a gallery....... .

originally i was saving this one for a group show in 111 minna in a couple of weeks, but a collector wanted it so i had to make up for it with another piece. been extreamilyyyyy behind schedule lately. a friend from paris and portland's been staying with me for a couple of weeks and i've been playing tour guide. feeling really guilty when im painting and they are board as hell, so i try my best to be a good host. it's been a pleasure having them over but im going to go nuts from deadlines when they leave.

found this on my computer yesterday. one of my fav sets.

come original or don't come at all!

i've been pasting giant matchboxes head around la. very fun. i thought about printing giant matchboxes, but painting original and pasting them is much more funnier. here's a 30 minute head painting on bond paper.

also, i got home yesterday to finding a email sending me a link to concept art.
the guy is thanking me for giving him the idea........i never gave him the idea???????
you bit it more like. least he thanked me
