Damn, another childhood staple taken away this year. I just watched Star Wars Rogue One and it ends with a short cameo by Princess Leia. As I am walking out of the theater I hear of the passing of Carrie Fisher. Sad moment. In any case, I had to do a little drawing to honor a character (and the actress that brought her to life) that was such a big part of my youth. Rest in peace.
I was a contestant in El Jimador’s Art Brawl, an event sponsored by El Jimador tequila where six artists battle it out for prizes. I was fortunate enough to win 2nd place behind Dinkc from Brooklyn. Had a great time hanging with old friends and making some new ones. Big shout out to all the other artists and everyone who showed up and threw a few votes my way. Here are a few pics from the event. But before I do, just a few more shout outs!
Recently worked on a few murals for Elixir Bar & Grill in Edison, New Jersey. Had a great time letting art really invade their space. Big shout to Manny for having us work on it. If you are looking for some good eats and brews, go check them out!
My fellow Fresh Collective brother,Mimik and I did some live painting for Arts on Division in Somerville a few weeks ago. Big shout out to Jerome Gonzalez and everyone at Arts on Division for setting up the event and inviting the Fresh Collective to get down. The panels can be seen on Main Street in Somerville. Check it out…
Whenever I travel, I like to pick one of the paintings or frames in my hotel room and vandalize the back side with my own drawing and put it back up on the wall. I just like the idea of someone at some point coming across it. In any case, here is the latest in my ritual. This one is dedicated to the super hot region of Punta Cana, DR.
