Paintings (Acrylic)

"The Digital Avengers (The Last Supper Rendition) (2017)" (12x36 Inches) :
All the video game gang is here!!! At least the strong are I mean, and this time they chose to sit around the the Last Supper Table to enjoy a few potions and celebrate the overtaking of the video game dark world. There is a lot I could say about this piece but I wouldn't want to ruin the observer's time of getting to figure that out so I will only name a few. There are over 20 different Game references including Mickey Mouse, South Park, Bioshock, Borderlands, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon and The Darkness, as well as some lesser know characters like Yookah-Laylee (Platonic Games), which Rare co-founders have created to be the sequel to Banjo-Kazooie. The amount of time I have put into this painting would make anybody appreciate the sheer effort to bring a world of unique video game characters to life in a modern last supper rendition purely for the joy of seeing what that might be like, and sure enough, here we have it folks! Enjoy this monumental video game painting masterpiece I have created for your pleasure!

"Snowman's Charm (2009)" (8x11 Inches):

This snowman has been color dyed to the degree of a snowcone. Don't be fooled by his bright colors, he uses his charm to attract wanderers but I wouldn't want to know what he's up to.


Close Up:
I used a few colors in the eye to add some detail.

I have decided to make some business cards with "Snowman's Charm" as the background, here is the result:


"Elevate Your Mind (2009)" (18x24 Inches):
The brain has alot of room to grow, don't stop thinking or it will wither away.


Close Up:
The humming bird on the left took 5 hours to do.

Close Up #2:
Ladybugs protect your gardens from aphids which eat your plants which is why the Ladybugs were put in to show how they protect the mind from harmful or bad thoughts which stop it from growing.

"Pee Wee's Candy Corn Nightmare (2006)" (36x36 Inches):
This painting is where it all started. I am very happy to know my first surreal painting was of Pee Wee Herman, he literally was my childhood role model but I couldn't be as goofy as him so I decided to paint him being fed candy from a Candy Corn Alien...yes, it's random but I was just starting so you cannot hate too hard.

Graffiti (Aerosol/Acrylic)

"Milpz Grape Jammer":
Went to Bolinas Beach with my friend, "Jesse Adams", to do a collaboration production and experimented for my first time using spray paint and paintbrushes. Now after trying it out, I almost wish I experimented with paint brushes on walls before because I am able to get some really nice details and also I have a ton of unused bucket paint just sitting in my closet. Jesse helped fill in some colors on my piece and he did some dripping grape jelly details to make my piece look edible (just joking) and more eye popping. I later shaded and did the rendering to make it more 3D. Here is the result: Photobucket

Close Up:
This shows some of the finer lines I'm learning to do. 


Painting Shot:
Here you can see Jesse painting some grape jelly dripping from my piece with some paint brushes.

"Girl Machine":
This piece is called "Girl Machine" and was done at Bolinas Beach. I put a bunch of those annoying abbreviations girls consistantly use in their text messages (G2G, STFU, LOL, ROFL, OMG) to really hype up the annoying factor in a comedic way, but never the less, these colors are still poppin.

Angle Shot:
I wanted to get a shot of the sun shining on it before it went away and made me rush my piece.

Painting Shot:
This piece took roughly 4 hours, would have done more but I got there late so it got dark.

"Nost at Pheonix":
Done at Pheonix Theatre legal walls in Petaluma. This piece says "Nost" which is short for the other two names I write as well which are Nostal and Nostalgia.


Close Up:
I was able to get those "X" marks by holding the spray paint directly on the wall and swiping as fast as I could, great technique I learned.


Painting Shot (Photo taken by Claus Brigmann):
Double outlines make your piece POP OUT IN 3D! WOAH! It would be cool to try that with red and blue paint actually, maybe in future...ok, i'll stop talking now.Photobucket

Nostalgia at Pheonix:
This was the first time I wrote "Nostalgia" so it was not exactly the way I wanted it, never the less, still pleasable. Very long word, but actual nostalgia is what I use for inspiration so I wanted to write it.


Close Up:
This is my favorite part of my "Nostalgia" piece. The composition is perfect!


Painting Shot (Photo taken by Clause Brigmann):
If you look closely at the sketch.... you can notice a different color scheme, but don't tell anyone, haha.

I have always enjoyed painting on canvas since I first started in 2006, but doing murals is like nothing I've experienced before. So much planning and skill goes into murals because the murals can be bigger than you. If you are interested and would like me to make you a mural then contact me on my facebook:

I am really pleased with the result of this mural after 200 hours plus, and guess what...I did this exact same mural image on both sides of the walls inside the church...Phew!

Easy Street Cafe Mural (Photo taken by Dustin Hirdt):
This mural was done for my friend Adam Bikzer's father Abraham Bikszer who happens to owns one of the best restaurants in San Anselmo and possibly all Marin...not just hyping you because of the mural I did there, haha.

"Wasabi Lobby (2010)" (8x11 Inches):
A world I have just yet discovered in my brain...I don't know what it is about asians but I always have been obsessed with them and their culture. This drawing is about a asian boy being possed by a wasabi asian girl and you know the rest...haha.
