October show preview

Paintings in progress – save the date for October 2019 for my next show at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José.

ArtBox: The Illuminated Iris

The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.

Pet portraits: Cat edition

I put out a call for pet portraits early in the year and have done quite a few since then. Most of them I held off on posting because they were gifts and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. This batch is cats!

100 Block mural in downtown San José

Organized by The Exhibition District, this is a mural created by 100 different artists each painting a 3′ x 3′ square.

Pale

This was a quick piece done for an exhibit at Works/San José show, Unity In Diversity. This theme relates to a graphic design project by San Jose State BFA student Javier Yep in 2017 that included a “unity in diversity” flag.

A trio of chicken portraits

I enjoy painting portraits of pets, and my latest commission was especially fun: pet chickens!

Shimmer

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.

Outgrowth I

I haven’t done many abstract works so this is a bit of an exploration for me.

10th Annual 50|50 Show at Sanchez Art Center

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.

Never Gonna Give You Up

Here’s a triptych of paintings I created based on the theme of the 2018 Works/San José member show: Infinite Memes.

Self-Portrait with Untapped

I created this sketch for a self-portrait show at the Art NXT Level / 33 Contemporary Gallery space in Chicago.

Bronze Warriors I & II

These two are random sketches based on a couple of interesting frames I found. I started with the owlish mask of what became the first weary warrior woman.

50|50 Sneak Peek

Since May I’ve dived headlong into a few projects.

Boondocks Triptych

I figured if the comic were going today, Huey and Riley would be Black Panther fans so they’re doing the Wakanda salute here…or trying to.

Flaming Carrot

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.

Reject pile for Natural Conclusions

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.

“Natural Conclusions” show at Kaleid Gallery

This show is the culmination of two years of collecting amateur landscapes in need of a little love.

“Natural Conclusions” – a new solo show at Kaleid Gallery

This March is my second solo show at Kaleid Gallery in downtown San José!

Force of Habit

I started this one in college as an figure painting exploration with a particular focus on hands and feet.

Loki I & II

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.
