today was her first time holding a paint brush on her own. she painted on paper for about 2 seconds then went to the walls with her brothers and anything else that was in sight. I try my hardest to keep a well kept studio but with three little ones who consider it a second home I'm out numbered.
2004 cardboard sketch when I was attempting to translate my work into 3D. At the time I could only imagine using basic geometric shapes, parts of the human face and arrows to paint on. I put this aside until I could figure out how to compose a sculpture out of my actual marks which ended up taking me about 12 years.
just released my first numeric series. numbers 0-9 printed in an edition of ten. for more info hit the link in my profile. Thank you!!!✊🏽
anyone (a kid in the 80's) remember playing with these? I had five of these til my boys found them this is the last one left.

took my kids to visit my old neighbor and for the first time they asked if they could hang out with him while I ran an errand with their sister. This was also the first time they wanted to stay with a non family member which I thought was cool. They are understanding trust and I could not have asked for this moment to be with anyone else. when it was time to pick them up I looked at the drawings they did with him and said that box of crayons was older than me! Hahah. ✊🏽
real spit. my son came over gave me a hug and said "I love you dad" then he blew his nose with my shirt. Here's my other son saying "dad look what brother just did". awesome. Hahah
