Progress but more like making a mess...

It's true.
I am having the hardest time focusing on this painting. I am not sure why, but I want to be done with it. Perhaps I should focus on other projects? Or perhaps feeling unsure on this painting is leading me to NOT be able to move to other projects. I have to figure out what my mental block is before I progress. One wonders...

I have been invited to speak at the UW in Bothell again. This was a great honor for me to do this last year and I look forward to scheduling another lecture. I will have to look over the past year's accomplishments and pick which I will highlight.

Okay, I hope this blog finds you well. I am waiting on the 35th skate decks to come in. This I am very excited about! Stay tuned for details!

Augie and I did so good! Ego came later on and he did as well.

Artoleptic was a BLAST this year! Thank you so much Jen and Shaina for organizing again another amazing event!

This was the first we all collaborated together and hopefully it will not be the last.

I hope all is well if you are reading this, cheers!

August 6th 11am-5pm
Come down and hang, be a spectator, participator and instigator of Georgetown history.

Known for being an art hub, Georgetown is an excellent place to exercise your creativity. I will be painting with an all-star cast of amazing artists including my favorites Carlos Aguilar and Ksera.

We are looking for volunteers to do light clean up, painting and assisting artists with their sections. We welcome anyone who is willing to hold a paintbrush or have a good time!

Thank you Bherd Studios and COCA for curating the show and mural project!
