Organized by The Exhibition District, this is a mural created by 100 different artists each painting a 3′ x 3′ square.
I enjoy painting portraits of pets, and my latest commission was especially fun: pet chickens!
Continuing my tradition of creating new works to donate to the annual Works/San José benefit auction, here’s one that echoes some of the artful cropping of the Statement paintings but with a new subject matter.
I haven’t done many abstract works so this is a bit of an exploration for me.
For 50 days I painted a series of gesture paintings. I enlisted 24 models (plus me) for variety and also to involve friends, family, and co-workers along the way.
Here’s a triptych of paintings I created based on the theme of the 2018 Works/San José member show: Infinite Memes.
Since May I’ve dived headlong into a few projects.
It’s been a little while since I’ve drawn in a comic style, so I decided to go for one of my standbys: Flaming Carrot.
About 15-20% of what I came across ended up working for this particular project. Here are the various reasons why pieces were either non-starters or failed along the way.
This show is the culmination of two years of collecting amateur landscapes in need of a little love.
This March is my second solo show at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José!
I started this one in college as an figure painting exploration with a particular focus on hands and feet.
I was struck by the lighting and the rhythm of the layout. Two other people were there, quietly enjoying a dinner, so I surreptitiously snagged a photo that I decided to make into a painting.
I went with the first thing that came to mind since it had a few distinct images in it: Cat’s In the Cradle by Harry Chapin (or Ugly Kid Joe, depending on your era).
This is a painting of Tahuya, a spot in Washington that has a genuine inland fjord. Fjords: not all in Norway!
This is a Zelda-themed repaint for my friend Jeremy who has a whole black/white/red setup for his motorcycle & gear.
In celebration of the warmer weather and the end of the drought, I created this series of things that grow in the ground. I always like cutaway-style illustrations so I created a view of what’s above and below the ground.
When I thought of the theme, “Elevate”, I thought about how people express themselves with gestures. I picked a movie for each of the 13 days of Cinequest to be represented here by gestures from one of their characters.
I just finished hanging a dozen pieces of art at Bel Bacio coffee shop in San Jose’s Little Italy.
This calendar’s story is about how the rooster got his crown.
