Hello. Welcome to my blog. This is where I post new projects and talk a little bit about my experiences with clients. If you are interested in any kind of commission please head over to the contact page.
kudro Kids is a a new brand specializing in unique kids apparel, accessories and renewable ideas. They offer a trade-in recycle program and try to use lots of otherwise wasted materials. They asked me to create a large scale illustration with many characters, slogans and icons that represented their brand. The illustration was then applied to some limited edition items, denim jeans, bags, and T-shirts. The art also became part of the branding approach, with the inside of their shipping box showing a black and white version. Kudro Kids sent me a package of their final product and I was very impressed with the quality and finish of their products, my daughter loves the jeans!View Full Post
DesignerCon 2023 was a special event this year. One because it was the last DesignerCon in Anaheim, CA because next year the even moves to Las Vegas, Nevada. Two because I got invited to ride along with Secret Walls for the weekend. The V.I.P attendance on Friday night was a blast, I live painted at the Secret Walls booth and met some amazing artists and fans.
Saturday kicked off with me finishing out my painting, then it was on to stroll the booths. I met up with friends; Matt Gondek, GoopMassa, Sean Keeton, Dreyfus, Allison Bamcat, 7amcreations, Joey Stupor, and RJQuiralta. I also met some new friends; The London Police, Thumbs1, UrbanAztec, TheObanoth, Tara McPherson, Upperhand Art, Space Rabbit Studio, Paul Jackson, Dave Quiggle, Killernapkins and Woes. Next I was part of a panel of artists discussion the importance of collaboration.
The day ended with a classic Secret Walls art battle! It was me, Allison Bamcat and 7amcreations Vs Dreyfus, Goopmassa and The Obaaoth! After the crowd vote and special artists judges my team took the win! Finished the day out with dinner with the Secret Walls crew who are always a pleasure to work with. Sunday I chilled with my kids and dragged myself around the floor one more time! Amazing weekend, one for the books. Thanks to Secret Walls for taking me, thanks to Monster Energy Drinks and Posca for sponsoring the event and special thanks to all the artists who made me feel very welcome!View Full Post
I was very please to be asked to paint a DIY toy for the launch of the Chamuco Toy by Mr Mitote. Martian Toys and Mothership Art Gallery co-ordinated a group art show featuring many awesome artists. The show opened in Philadelphia in November and my piece sold immediately. I wanted to coat the toy in my signature doodles and kept is simple with just black and white ink. I also doodled all over the box. You can see full details of the piece here.View Full Post
Earlier this year I designed some coffee bags for Philip DeFranco’s brand Wake and Make Coffee. After the success of the launch, the brand wanted to extend their offerings. With the holidays fast approaching, they asked me to design three Cocoa packages. The flavors consisted of Milk Chocolate, Spicy Hot and Peppermint Cocoa. These flavors influenced the final designs, with each container having a unique front and back design. Available for purchase here.View Full Post
Over the past day and a half I have been painting a wall at Secret Walls HQ. It’s a 10’x12’ wall full of my signature doodles. I’ve been a huge fan of the Secret Walls brand for a long time. Being asked to do a wall alongside some incredible artists is a dream project for me.
I decided to make sure some of my signature characters were in there but mostly made it up as I went. Which to be honest wasn’t the best approach but it’s true to how I do most of my work. Spontaneity is important to me. The Secret Walls team were amazing to work with and very accommodating. Thank you
It was an absolute privilege to work on this wall and I am very grateful for the opportunity. If you’re in the LA area swing by the secret walls HQ and check out the murals. They won’t disappoint.View Full Post
Philip DeFranco asked me to work with him on a brand new coffee company earlier this year. Wake and Make was created to offer quality coffee in small batches as individual purchases or a monthly subscription service. Phil needed three designs to span the light, medium and dark roast coffees and each one had to have it’s own personality.
Each coffee already had a great name so for the me the design came very naturally. The doodle illustration I am recognized for made up the consistent look for the product. Use of color and typography allow me to make each bag look individual while also remaining part of a set. Phil was great to work with, giving me lots of creative freedom. I am really happy with the final bags, I received samples and the coffee is also delicious! If you’re a coffee lover, check them out.View Full Post
