Another Ego & 179 Collaboration

This was for a show Ego just had. yeah, he is my hero. This was a concept I had for a tattoo. I love giant squid and whales. We then turned this into a painting. I like the end result. Makes me happy. Enjoy.

1st Thursday Art Walk at the Infamous SnoCon!
Come hang out, buy cheap art and give hugs!

Thursday, November 20, 2008

This was for a bandana design. I knew I wanted to do a longhorn skull. I just wasn't sure how I wanted to execute the illustration. So while Carson played on the computer, I sat on the futon and drew and inked and pieced this together in photoshop (original illustration was 11x11). Yeah.

Skate Like A Girl & Electric Baby Sticker Design


Here is my sticker design for the organization. Everything that is Grey is clear. The butterfly is supposed to look like it is breaking out of the white box that is trying to contain it. Hopefully it is effective! These ladies are super awesome. Please, please read up on these links! I will be live painting for an All-Girl skate jam of theirs in December and will definitely keep you posted. Thanks everyone!

Upper Playground Seattle Opening

For more info!

This definitely was an overwhelming show! All these big names and little old me. I was super excited to be apart of the show though. Thanks my Seattle familia who came out to support (and those who made this happen). Cheers!


Seattle /// Damion Hayes
BLVD is proud to present “Fanatic” a group show that explores the enthusiasm expressed in “Fan” art. The artists participating in this show were given the task of creating art that is in tribute to something that they are truly a fan of. It did not matter whether it was related to entertainment, though much of it is, or cultural pursuits but had to be straight from the heart. BLVD Gallery is fanatic about the vibrant talent here in Seattle so most of the artists involved are from the area and are showing with us for the first time. Intermixed with them are some veteranos like Pars and Ego, as well as a surprise installation from longtime gallery fixtures Zeta Mek.

BLVD Gallery
2316 2nd Ave Seattle Wa 98121
t. 206.448.8767

Featuring work by -
Pars, Ego, OneSevenNine, Julio Guerrero, Aloha Terrorists, Drewad
Weirdo, Jefferey Taylor, Zeta Mek, Miguel “Wero” Cuevas, Ben Adams

I chose to do a Mogwai being terrorized by a Gremlin. When I was little I totally thought of myself as a Mogwai. Now being older and having a good time in life, I am definitely a Gremlin!
Be sure to check out the show, everyone really did good!
