After 6 days in the box, @jonnyalexander and I are finally finished with this two story, 3 platform, many walled interior stairwell/obstacle course. Very grateful to have such lovely pals to paint all day with...thanks for making the journey and for all the dad jokes. ((someday a good video and photos of this project will surface))
another handful of photos of this collab mural with @coolhandken coming in from @powwowsanjose @powwowworldwide thanks for the fun times! I'll be back in the bay area next week for another project....this time with some extra days to see all you buddies!! ((Special thanks to @will_5sixty for the adventure vehicle!!))
@seannglaspy came through with the wide angle shot of this collab mural with @coolhandken for @powwowsanjose. The mural is at 1043 Garland Ave. in San José, CA
Its pretty impossible to get a solid shot of this wall...someday! But for now, here is a look at the 5 day process of this wall with my spirit animal @coolhandken for @powwowsanjose @powwowworldwide. So grateful for the opportunity to paint in my hometown with such a great crew supporting us. Carlos + Jen at @empire7studios ...thank you for your dedication to this project. To the neighbor lady to screamed at how much she DID NOT want this mural on the first night and came out thanking us for the beautiful work at the end of the week...THANK YOU! You are the reason we do this. And to the 90 degree sun on my back...thank you..i needed that too.
Touch up for Veronica. Made at @oldcrowtattoo
What a day. I was invited to create a piece with 400 facebook employees for their first annual Latino Leadership Day. I get a lot of inspiration from my mother who is from mexico...i figured i should invite her to help me out for the day so she could experience just what it is i do. Particpants were encouraged to play with florals, beans and rice...each move they made dictated the next move on the painting. Everything was created in the moment. The painting is 4x8ft and the tapestry is 8x8ft. Nice to play with some new materials.
Quick painting for my pals here in Denver.
New print "Sacred Sites II" will be released with @theheliotropefoundation @swoonhq special event "King Woman" on Nov 21st in NYC. Honored to be included in this collection with such powerful women artists
day three of @powwowsanjose @powwowworldwide 📷@iguanasburritozilla
@seannglaspy came by yesterday and took this shot of @coolhandken and I getting to work. I may have already gotten screamed at, but i am very happy to be painting for a non-profit that provides fresh food, clothing and resources to homless, hiv positive and low income residents of the city. Thank you @powwowsanjose for making it all happen.
