Halloween Piece

So Halloween just passed, and I had already sketched out a piece to paint. Coincidentally I almost didnt get a chance to paint it but decided at the last minute to go ahead and do it so I wouldnt regret not having done it. It was a quickie, and much smaller then I wanted to paint it but it didn't turn out so bad.

iPhone/iPod case design

Here is a pic of a recent commission job I finished. It was done for a South Carolina Gamecock fan. Hand drawn lettering scanned, cleaned up and added to photo. I like how it turned out.

Back to my roots

I'm a graff writer. Wait, I know what you might be saying, "oh he's a vandal", or "a tagger", or even "he's a street artist"(btw street art and graffiti are 2 totally different things, but we'll save that for another time); coincidentally I am also a street artist. But there is more to this art that I grew up learning from some amazing people I got to hang out with in Southern California. It's been a while since I picked up a can for a piece, but lately I have been missing it. So when this truck came in to the scrap yard I work at, I asked if I could paint it. My employers were gracious enough to oblige. Here are some progress pics, and I should be done in the next few days. enjoy!


from concept to reality

More Progress!

Here's the finished product, plus some closeups!

Happy Bday banner

Last week a friend turned 30! So I painted a banner for her party, something people could take pictures in front of. it was a quickie, and I just used what paint I had at the house. I like how it turned out tho.

Art Envelopes

Here's another art envelope I sent out a short time ago. I wanted to wait until it reached its new owner before posting it. It's pop in nature with a more modern urban twist as I gave the lips a gold grill.

Sneaker Pimp

A while back I was honored to be a part of an art fundraiser/silent auction in Cali(my home state) to raise money for a young man and his medical bills. While I was unable to attend the event, I was however able to send them a piece that I have not shared until now. I decided to paint a pair of sneakers which were donated by a local Athletes Foot owner. Here are progress pics and the final results of how they turned out. I painted a piece by one of my all time favorite artists Van Gogh, the piece is called "Young Wheat Fields". Enjoy, and....

I recently finished a few signs for several businesses in the city I live for barter. Two for a hairstylist and another for a massage therapist. Here are the 2 relatively small signs I finished a few weeks ago.

Upcycle! Doorknobs as hooks

Good morning! So last week I was thinking of ways I could create more organization for my girls and their backpacks/jackets for school in the house, besides thrown on a chair or floor. I see allot of doors, and have painted allot of them as well. So it struck me, why not re-purpose doorknobs as hooks! Aha! Sooo, since I had a few doors at the house that no longer needed their respective knobs I confiscated them and ended up with this!

The Silent Pill(reprogramming)

Television has long been nick named "The Idiot box" by generations before me. They kill motivation, inspiration(for the most part) and only wish to drain you of critical thinking and and self thought. The messages on most programs is one of depression, sadness, and an underlying of demoralization. Without even thinking about it you waste hours in front of it, while it tells you how to think, what to think, and even WHEN to think. Turn it off! Go outside and put your feet in the grass and your head to the sun, feel the cool breeze on a sunny spring afternoon, go to a park and sketch. The message here is simple, take something that normally is so loud about NOTHING positive, and give it a twist. A ninja is silent in what he does, and normally can not be seen as he is the stealthiest of the kung fu/martial art disciplines. Without even knowing it, this message is seen and processed on sleepy urban/suburban streets and you are ultimately injected with something of a positive nature. My intention is to get people to think about simply LOVING more, in more ways, and more often!....

Recycled/DIY floor length mirror

Recently I have finished not one, but two mirrors from wood I had around the house(and mirror). In a previous life they were both used as a small dance mirror and platform for my daughter when she was younger in our garage. I kept the materials because I knew someday somehow I might use them for something else and in doing so give them a second, third, or fourth life. The only materials I did not have were mirror clips and the molding used. I spent less then $100 to complete this project and I think my daughter intends on priming and painting it gold when all is said and done....Enjoy, and GO CREATE!

My beautiful daughter Bri.

We are in the process of remodeling her room, I have since done a pallet treatment to the ceiling(1/2 done), fresh paint, new bed is in the works, barn door style entry door, new window, raw wood shelving and industrial style storage using old filing cabinets. I love the idea of giving things new life, as opposed to discarding them. I must admit it is coming together really nice, and I will post pics once it is finished. Only problem, I never took before pics...ahhhh my bad!
Here is her new floor length mirror.

These first pics are of the frame w/o the molding.

In these pics you can see how the molding gives it a whole different feel. This was my first time, and I am in no way a "finish carpenter". But I know my way around a

Here is our mirror in it's new home unpainted.

Reclaimed wood barndoor

Happy Monday! Well I hope you had a good, productive weekend like I did. I finished another door for a client this weekend, and I think it turned out awesome! The door is made from reclaimed walnut, and the handle from cast iron piping. This door is super easy to build, and the hardware is even easier to install. The client wanted something different for her newly finished wash room. Since there is no real need for privacy, this is more of a statement piece, but also serves as a functional one. The wood came from The Wood Yard in Griffin, Ga. The hardware can be purchased at any Tractor Supply Co. store. Links for both are below.
