Emo Wants the World to Respect Jersey Graffiti

Seeing loud and energetic pieces pull up on gleaming metal trains is a rare sight in the US nowadays. While painting trains is a concept born in The Bronx, these days it’s more ubiquitous in Europe and other countries outside the States. There are some heads still putting in low-key work here in the States, but most writers keep their flicks close and away from prying public eyes, since laws can be draconian and repercussions severe. Occasionally people post their own work online, but generally the scene is kept pretty quiet.

    Burnin’ with Boba Fett

    I’m a huge fan of Star Wars and have been loving the Mandalorian series and the new Book of Boba Fett series on Disney+. Being a child of the seventies, the first three Star Wars movies will always have a special place in my heart. Even back then, everyone knew Boba Fett was the only bad guy who was so bad ass, you kinda liked him…haha!

    Anyway, it’s really cool to see the new series sort of pick up where Return of the Jedi left off almost 40 YEARS AGO! That’s crazy!

    I was inspired so I whipped up this sketch…check it out!

    Home Sweet Home!

    I love painting murals anywhere, but there is something really cool about people asking for murals in their home. Through the years, I’ve done this a bunch of time and I always happy to see people’s reactions when I’m finally done and they are looking at their own space with wonder in their eyes. Thanks to all the clients who have invited me into their home over the years. Here’s a look at of some of that work…

    Peace Mural

    We did some prior work for Alex Salguero on the front and inside of the building for his family and business (Classico Auto Glass). After the last commercial project, he asked me to do a mural on the side of the building. When I asked him what he wanted he said something anti-violence promoting peace. […]

    Accenture Mural

    Here is a new mural I just recently completed for my friends at Accenture in Florham Park, NJ. This was a fun project and it was a long time in the making. We initially began working on this project a few months before COVID hit hard in New Jersey and the project was put on hold indefinitely. So it’s great to see that the world is taking some small steps at going back to normal, and that this mural got a chance to happen. Check it out!

    No paint, no gain!

    Over the years, I’ve done a lot of painting at all types of gyms, fitness centers, athletic centers and basically any type of facility related to athletics from crossfit to gymnastics to powerlifting and even home gyms! One thing is for sure, people like to get amped up while the work out (not to mention a cool wall to take some selfies in front of…haha). I thought it would be cool to take a look at all of this work in one spot, so here it is!
