jar head!

i will have a few sculptures in my show. im painting on everything i see. here is 2 jars put together to form voltron. i think i might even leave paprika in one of the jars.

jan 16 solo at lebasse.

moon bears

i hate to be all serious right after the holidays, but this is a topic that cant be ignored.
the show called a cry for help and will benefit the endangered species in the world.
when i went to loas i witness a caged bear in the middle of the jungle. so many questions ran threw my head. like who does it belong to? who feeds it? and why? i came back to the states and did some research and this is what i found.

my piece for the cry for help show. charcoal and pencil.

i will post more info soon.

sarasota was amazing!
special thanks tom casmer, valerie strenk, kelly tudor, and all of ringling for making my trip so awesome.
thank you alllllll for your hospitality. I appreciate it greatly!!!!!

during my painting, i was praying the whole time that i would come out semi decent. my nerves got the best of me and won. im pretty sure everyone there could tell how nervous i was. this is my third lecture and demo and im still not use to being up on the stage. needless to say the painting was a flop:(

the model (sarah) is so awesome to work with!!!!!!!

one of the hardest thing for me was judging the ill of ill art show. there was soooo much great work and i only could accept 70. i had a hard time deciding the show and even a harder time deciding who deserved to win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
after a few hours i ended up picking some great stuff to be in the show. i wished i could've included more.

i picked the white border as 3rd place.

nice people.

extremely nice fellas. justin and chris.
i picked this as 1st place.
charles got some serious skills.

charles, keyla, kelly, adam.
love these 2 pieces.
i picked this for 2nd.
awesome artist and graffiti artist, peter.

so that's my trip in a nutshell. Im sorry i couldn't hang out with everyone who contacted me. there was just too much things to see and too much dinners to attend to.
again, thanks ringling!

lastly please go out and rock the vote for my good friend michael alverez.

those evil natured robots.

this was one of my projects i did while in school. im so glad i found this while organizing. everyone and their momma got a robot. i just wanted to document random people doing there robot. the beginning starts of with a professional, my old roommate daniel ahn. then towards the end you have ordinary joe's doing mr roboto. i have a quick cameo along with jon han, ronald kurinwan, and david jien.
also get your ol dirty bastard t-shirt from the very talented david jien.


lastley, ill be flying out to florida tomorrow for a lecture and a demo at ringling college of art and design. if you are around sarasota you should swing by the school.

I've never met tempt, but i have always been a big fan of his work. It was painful when someone told me that he would never be able to create art again. but i recently came across this video that made me soooooooooo inspired.

SE2 EP4 - Eyewriter Tempt LA from Evan Roth on Vimeo.

i cannot believe he is able to do this with his eye. i have trouble doing it with both hands.
such an amazing artist!

doodles ma noodles.

just some sketchbooks, drawings and doodles laying around my place.
my first attempt on using the t1i.

Wednesday, September 16, 2009


trying something new. i usually just go with an idea and a quick sketch, but this time i've been trying to do matte paintings.
this is making my life soooo much easier because i hardly get stuck while in the middle of painting.

also doing a slow shutter painting, so took some slow shutter references.

i really love the look you get from gouache. very graphic and very saturated. heres a 30 minute gouache demo i did at otis 2 weeks ago.

nathan ota swung me some acryla-gouache. i never heard of this, so i couldn't wait to give it a try. almost the same look, but with a different finish.

also, i recently released a limited edition stuff print. i have 9 left. if interested it's available at my store.

spray it, don't say it.

i painted this mural 4th of july weekend.
i did the big face mainly with house paint. i notice when you do a mural with house paint, cops drive by waving hi and giving the thumbs up. but the moment you highlight the painting with spraypaint then you become a suspect. kinda crazy.  i repainted this wall again because the colors were looking really dull.  that's what 3 years in the sun will do to you.  gonna coat this new one with u.v protection! might take a while to finish the whole wall, but here's a small portion of it.

this is the longest wall i've ever done.  i really don't know how artist in the u.k have enough energy to do 10+ stories mural.
