The AVAX is coming...

Well, its an idea thats been flying around in my head for a while now... Mixing music and visual art into a singular experience... and now it looks like it may actually become a reality!

Here's the short version of the story...

So Sparx in the City has been putting out a call for street performers. I really didn't react to the call, as I am primarily a painter. I didn't figure that people would be that interested in seeing me live on the street painting, you know the expression 'about as fun as watching paint dry'. But then I get this call from a talent agency in Boston who is doing the talent recruiting for Sparx. They wanted to know if I would be interested, so I thought about it some and said SURE!

The next step was this, I wanted it to be a wild experience, full of energy, and interactive with my audience. So I thought why not add some funky music, and learn some new ways to do my paintings REALLY FAST! REALLY FAST! Like painting a tiki in 7 minutes or less to the reverberated tones of my buddy Brett Everett. I gave Brett a call, and he was down, so I started putting the concept together.

Today was our official tryout for Sparx. There were many more judges than I was expecting. Brett layed down a sweet surf track while I flew through a tiki painting in 5 minutes!!! I am guessing it was a success as I sold the painting right there on the spot! Not only that, but there were others who wanted to buy it too!

We will know the final results by next week, but I feel like we nailed it! Stay tuned for the results. And be looking for AVAX soon! I think that even if we don't get this gig, we will be doing it anyway, just on account'a it was F-U-N! If we get the gig, remember this address Once we have done a couple of gigs, we will have video and pics up on our site.

Pesky Little Butterfly

This piece was created using several different processes. First drawn with pencil, then filled in with marker, and then worked with colored pencil. After that I reworked it with markers again, and finally scanned it into photoshop. From there I tweaked it even further to create this print.

A whole new world for me - sculpture!

"And She Loved her Pink Bow" - the sculpture. So here's the deal... I have an awesome opportunity to understudy with Walt Horton, a world renown bronze artist, so I decided to take the plunge into sculpture. Walt has been watching my work as a painter, and has really encoraged me to give my style a try in a 3 dimensional form.

With that said, I decided to start with a little bit simpler form, taking inspiration from my painting with the same title. It will be a bashful little girl with a very large bow in her hair when its all done. At this point I am still building up the form, but I wanted to blog this process, just because I think it will be fun to watch her come together. Stay tuned for updates! Posted by Hello
