charachter wall

So last Thursday I was able to celebrate shipping my pieces for my next show to New York by painting this wall with Dabs, Myla and Rime at Static Medium in silverlake. Nothing beats the sun, some paint and hanging out with friends. It was a good time guys. Thanks for inviting me to paint.
here are some pics:

So with the majority of the creative part done for my upcoming show "Inside The Outside" at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York on June 5th, the inevitable dreaded shipping day arrived. I have always good luck with my shippers Box Bros. and have lots of faith in them, but it kind of feels like sending my kids off to college every time I drop off a show.
My dad showed up early today and helped me load to trucks up with artwork and off we went at a snails pace. They generally make a huge wooden crate and individually wrap the works, so off they go tomorrow.

Once that was done, it was off to the printers to sign the limited edition print we will be releasing at the show "The Welcoming Party"

With those signed, it was off to "To Die For" to visit my friends Josh and Jason.

Here's the wall we recently painted at the To Die For and IMSCARED Flagship store...

Had to pick up some much needed tools...

and some more...hope to use these soon......Thanks Montana

Great catching up there and then it was off to an hour of traffic and more drawing time. Shipping days can be depressing, just because coming back to the bare studio kinda sucks. All these pieces have become part of the family so I can't wait to get to New York in June to see them again... well this cheered me up:

Linkin Park Video Game

My friends at Linkin Park just released a new game for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch called "8 Bit Rebellion". It's a RPG / Massively Multiplayer game inspired by some of their (and yours I assume) favorite old school, 8 Bit Nintendo games. Lots of missions, big community features, and users that beat it get a new, exclusive Linkin Park song. This game is awesome so do yourselves a favor and check it out.
