It’s been a few months since I posted anything up here and the world has flipped upside, especially in my part of the woods. With a global pandemic changing everything, followed by a series of horrific events related to racism in our country, the world seems desperate and divided. It felt right to paint something that could spread a little positivity so I went with a “Love Over Hate” lettering approach. Nothing too crazy, just simple, straightforward with a little style…haha. Check it out!
With a global pandemic changing everything, followed by a series of horrific events related to racism in our country, the world seems desperate and divided. It only felt right to paint something that could help inject a little positivity so I went with a “Love Over Hate” message. This one was inspired by my boy, the late Jerome “Cuzo” Gonzalez. I originally painted this phrase as part of his memorial mural in downtown Somerville, NJ.
This time around, I kept it simple and straightforward, but with a little style. Check it out!
I was originally working on this collection of letters for the 36 Days of Type project, but was sidetracked by the craziness of life and decided to stop at “Z”. In any case, I am happy with how these turned out. I’ve always been really critical of my own letters and making sure they have good flow and movement. Graffiti should feel like the letter have come to life. I was also intrigued to play with layering different types of mediums and the abstraction of the form. Alphabeta is an exploration of those two things. Here is what I came up with…
I’ve got a limited run of my 36 Days of Type book. Check it out! You can pick one up here.
The mural for Jerome Gonzalez in Somerville, NJ is finally done! I gotta give a lot of shout outs on this one…my partner on this project Leon Rainbow, the folks at Phoenix Cafe for the awesome canvas, Gallery on Main and Arts on Devision for all their support, everyone who assisted on the artwork, everyone who helped raise funds and to all of Jerome’s family and friends for hanging out and sharing memories of a great dude. #cuzomural
I just wrapped up my first attempt at the 36 Days of Type project on Instagram. It was definitely a challenge to keep up with the pace, but glad it pushed me to think fast and experiment a bit with a few new styles. Check it out!
I was asked to put together a team for an event at Viacom. They are a huge media company and are working to reduce their plastic consumption. As part of that initiative, they have given ALL of their employees in New York City stainless steel water bottles, so that they won’t need to recycle plastic bottles in the future. The issue becomes how do 5,000 employees who all get the same bottle know which is theirs? So I brought in a team of heavy hitters to the Viacom offices in the heart of New York City to customize bottles for their employees with their names. Together, we rocked hundreds of bottles and plan to go back for more work soon. Big thanks to the team including BrainPaste, Leon Rainbow, Zar, Mimik, 5in5o, Jenna Morello, Big Ronnie and Morello+Company!! Check out some pics from th event…
