Guardian Art Show opening recap

Thanks to all who came out to support our Guardian art show this past Saturday evening. It was a beautiful night with incredible art, great music, great food, and great friends. Diana Mangano and Allison Love Joy put on an incredible music performance. Soula Misthos, Moira Lukas, and Cathy Stoia came through with an incredible spread of food. We had a large turn out and tons of positive feedback, which really makes all the hard work worth it. Thanks again for everyone's continued support and thanks to all the participating artist, they really came through with some amazing new work. I will be traveling out of the country for the next couple of weeks, but the show will still be up, you can contact Prairie Prince, if you are interested in checking it out. Happy Holidays!!

Crop Circle Cycle

Here are some pics of my newest and pretty much coolest custom painting project. I was asked by the motorcyle's designer/builder, Mark Bencivenga, and painter, Rolfe, to create their vision of specific crop circles in silver leaf on top of their purple kandy paint work. First I masked and silver leafed all the patterns, then machine turned the leaf areas that were circles and finished it of with classic cream and black pinstriping. This bike with be on display at the David Mann chopper fest in Ventura, Ca on December 13th.

Ol Wench Complete

Our Ol Wench mural is complete and looking great. The dope water and sky scene were painted by my most talented and wonderful sister, Margaretta. Steel came through with a sick ass Nekst piece and I painted the Ol Wench. This has turned into one of my most favorite colab murals so far. If you get a chance, check it out on Lower Clinton Park in SF.

Custom Painting in the Underground

This week I have been doing some long hours on some new projects at work. The first photos are of a sculpture which I was asked to colormatch and matte finish as part of a new piece by the artist, Adriane Colburn

Second are some pics of a silver leaf pinstripe project that I worked 11 hrs on yesterday for a bike being customized by Rolfe. The design is based on a crop circle theme and will be displayed at the annual David Mann Chopper Fest in Ventura, Ca on Dec. 13th. I will post better pics soon....
