Bad Dads at Spoke Art


  I'm excited to be part of this annual Wes Anderson themed show at Spoke Art here in San Francisco. Bad Dads   To Say that I'm a Wes Anderson fan is an understatement, I've been hooked since Bottle Rocket came out. I've sent a letter, I've sent a painting I made while on watch on a container-ship, I'm a nerd...  Anyways, below is the ink painting I made for the show, its a reference to a quick shot about a fictional Atoll referenced in The Royal Tennenbaums. Come check out the show, and if you make one of the two opening nights, be sure to dress up like one of your favorite characters. Also there's a big show next door at Hashimoto curated by Thinkspace. Hazawa

New Limited Edition Etching!


Etching2 With the help of some great people at Sharp Teeth Press in Oakland, I was able to convert one of my Ink on Paper works into a magnesium etching plate, from which we made a limited edition of 55 etchings.  I am VERY happy with the results, especially the insane amount of detail that remains with this technique. The etching print is 30x11" on nice French cotton rag paper. Etching1   If you would like to purchase one of these etchings, they are $100,  please contact me here and put in a request while they last.  If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have made two custom frames myself (seen in the image above) and you can pick up one either at Park Life (link) in the Richmond or at Establish (link) in the Sunset. Both have unframed  versions as well, and are amazing shops that you need to check out if you haven't already been.  All are signed and numbered....and thats it.

80 days at Sea/3 shows at home


photo (35) I'm happy to be back in the Bay after spending the last 80 days at sea on this container ship. This ship was on a similar run as in the short documentary I made a couple years back, running from New York City all the way to Thailand and stopping in many ports in between. The voyage had some chaotic moments including running aground in Egypt and a brief run in with some potential pirates, but we all made it home safe. If you would like to see some photos of the trip check out the photo feed section of this site here and check back for 35mm shots to be developed and added to my main photo section of the site here With the help of some great family and friends I was able to be part of three shows while I was across the globe. The first show was set up through the amazing Betty Bigas with the Roll Up Gallery, who hosted an art show at The California Academy of SciencesAcademyofSciences2 My wave tank was set up, along with several paintings, in the Tusher African Hall. academyofsciencesI wish I could have been there myself, the works seemed at home in front of the traditional dioramas and live penguin exhibit. The next show was up the coast in Astoria Oregon at Imogen Gallery. The show titled "The Sea Provides" was a two person show with the talented photographer Corey Arnold and coincided with the "Fisher Poets Gathering", a yearly event where commercial fisherman from all over the Pacific Northwest congregate to drink, wax poetic about the life we love, and drink some more. I heard good times were had by all, and I was very excited to be showing artwork for the first time with my Graveyard Point neighbor Corey. The most recent show was titled "Salt The Skies" at FFDG the physical gallery for the art portal that is fecalface.com.     I was very excited to be included with the talented lineup for this group show. Works by Brett Amory, John Felix Arnold, Mario Ayala, Jud Bergeron, Curiot (Favio Martinez), Christopher Burch, Lola Dupre, Michelle Fleck, Matt Gonzalez, Hiro Kurata, Marty Machado, Mark Mulroney, and Nicomi Nix Turnerinstall_6 The show will be up through April 19th, please stop by and have a look if you're in San Francisco. FFDG is located at 2277 Mission St. SF, CA. 94110
