My third ArtBox in San José, freshly painted at the intersection of Quito Road & Bucknall Drive.
I got the opportunity to leave my mark at the current location of Works/San José, the first place I showed art in a public venue.
Part of the Zip Us Up! collaboration in Michigan, this painting is inspired by the community legacy of the Three Fires Council.
A fresh new type of commission: an animation cel portrait!
This is a commission I recently finished in front of the Casa Verde apartment complex – they requested art that would be vibrant and fun.
This mural is part of the early response, organized by Local Color, to support local businesses with art of hope & solidarity after the first weekend of protests following the murder of George Floyd.
This is the largest painting I’ve done yet! It’s a shipping container owned by Veggielution (8′ x 8′ x 20′).
I contributed a low mural here in the theme of reclaiming and reusing space, latching onto the idea of the physical markers that signal that.
The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.
I started this one in college as an figure painting exploration with a particular focus on hands and feet.
Inspired by the flame effect of these frames, I created a couple of illustrations in ink and colored pencil based on a painting I did in college.
This calendar’s story is about how the rooster got his crown.
This calendar re-paint is about a story of a farmer who loses a sheep because a wolf snuck through a broken part of a fence.
This calendar re-paint reflects a Chinese folktale about a little monkey who came down from the mountain.
Each of these started off as a giveaway calendar from a Chinese restaurant. I’ve been collecting these and “repainting” them by painting over everything except the main image.
This is the third repaint of a calendar: this time the story I ended up picking is the “Chinese Cinderella”, Ye Xian.
After a passing glance at the mist, it occurred to me that I could fill the rest with a meandering creek to echo the shape of the Great Wall and the mist.
I’ve been looking for interesting things for re-paint projects that wouldn’t involve a nearly-complete re-paint, and this was just the ticket.
