Gracias , Por la Invitacion

This is my submission for the Dia de los Muertos show. When doing research for this piece I loved that everything that is done on this holiday(altars, shrines, flowers, candles, face painting, story-telling, etc.) is meant to encourage a visit from the deceased. I thought to myself what if the dead could usher themselves back into the realm of the living by creating their own encouragement to return. So here's my interpretation of that idea in acrylic and oil on rives BFK.
I Hope everyone enjoys and I can't wait to see the show on Friday, all the work I've seen already looks amazing. Who's stoked? I am! :)

Beware of Raccoons

Soooo....Theres a Raccoon living in the house across from mine thats under construction. I'm weirded out by this because I live in the heart of the city, I mean there are no woods for miles. I wonder if Animal Control is 24/7 because of course I only see him at 4:30 in the am.

P.S I never realized that Raccoons are about as big as a pitbull and they look like they can do some serious damage.

Another T-Shirt

Another t-shirt design for a friend based off of a painting I did called " A Tale of Regret". I need to get my friend to model it so I can see it on a form other than the photo I have taken I enjoyed this one. took about an hour and a half done with fabric markers. :)

Some sketches

Just me practicing flowers and type.

Creative Quarterly 17

Hey I just got an email from creative quarterly that said I got in so I thought I would share the piece that they chose. It's a portrait of British actor Ben Whishaw who's role in the movie "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" inspired me to do a portrait. The movie is awesome and if you haven't seen it then you should treat yourself and watch it.....Since it's Autumn I decided to a simple portrait of him blending in to his surroundings. I hope you enjoy and keep an eye out for the creative quarterly 17. I'm excited!! :)
this is the actor
This is the Sketch
this is my interpretation

This is my custom toy for the Nosego toy release show at Jinxed. The show was great and the new location for the Jinxed store is simply amazing at Piazza. I really enjoyed making this custom so much in fact that I had to give him a name. He is "Noodlez" and in case you were wondering he is the man.
