The ephemeral state of daily thoughts

New large format piece. Captures the congress of light and diaphanous colorbeams. Filter through the day and the thoughts you think will fade away.

MUTEMATH

The band Mutemath recently released their newest album VITALS, and guess what? I did the cover art! The band also used several of my pieces for the layout and insert design on the CD version. Prior to working on this project, I'd never heard of this band before. Really, truth be told, I generally follow many bands, and I always make concerted efforts to stay abreast of new releases, tours, singles, etc...I am into a lot of different sounds, mostly shit nobody has ever heard of. Mutemath had successfully evaded my radar. But somehow, somewhere, thru the etherspace that we crawl into every time we switch on our machines, they found me. I was contacted by the band's manager and subsequently put into contact with lead man Paul Meaney. We spoke on the phone and he asked me about my processes, etc...I agreed to make custom art for the band to use for cover designs, promotions, etc...I was beyond stoked to see this final product -- tweaked a bit for layout purposes, but wholly my own art and design.  Sometimes these awesome little projects come my way, and I am always grateful for them. Thanks, MUTEMATH!!

Thrasher Magazine!

I am currently featured in the April issue of the legendary Thrasher skateboarding magazine! I am so stoked and honored to be part of this. I have been skateboarding regularly since 1986. I have never stopped. My old bones can still take a beating, but I keep it pretty low key these days. Thrasher runs a section in the mag every month called "Canvas". They profiled me and my works in this current issue. Two page spread! What?!! So rad. Check it out at yr local newsstand or magazine shop -- Thrasher can be easily found, even at the supermarket. Hell yeah! www.thrashermagazine.com

So this is me here and now, here and somehow still breathing. Just checked my heart, yup, it still beats. My last website was thrown down the garbage chute, exhaled like the last breath taken before deep sleep, excised right outta earth. You get the point. But, hey, look, I am back! Yay! So rad. Anyway, I have and will continue to construct many new pieces. Shit, I already have been since the last vestiges of crappy code were tossed out. Stay tuned folks! I will soon have pieces for sale, in which you will be able to purchase right from this new site. Amazing. No more shitty dealings with Etsy, no more having to email me to see if I have new work for sale. I am stoked. And hopefully you will be too! Glad to have you aboard. Drop me a line sometime, or just browse around on here. So many pieces and so much time has lapsed in the ether...let's try and close the gap.
