Full of Sketches! # 5

Posted: May 7, 2012 in sketches, updates

Hey, everyone!

It’s been awhile, so how about we take a look at some sketches, eh? I had more than five months out at sea so I guarantee you many more sketches and work to come! Here’s just the beginning! Enjoy!

Gallery Talk # 1

Posted: May 7, 2012 in gallerytalk, updates

December 2009. “The Bunker.” My first little gallery.

Needless to say, this was fun and very interesting. Not the best neighborhood, nor was it near all the other galleries. But it was an experience and a fun one at that.

Put together by some of the local artists who were also my classmates, The Bunker showcased other local artists while having a very young and hip presentation. Bands, graffiti artists and fire art on the outside, and wine, art, and chitchat were all inside. Small, two-floored space, but it had heart.

The space didn’t last very long, but it proved to be memorable for its time. I was able to display 7 of my pieces, some of which was the first time I had shown them to anyone.

Here are some of my older wood panel pieces. These had gotten much more notice than the newer Super Heroine ones I had done just for the show. The wood pieces are still my favorites to this day.

The Super Heroine series, which I hope to get back to and definitely improve on. Not my strongest pieces, but it was an idea at the time. It was meant to represent some of the female heroes in comics as there are still those people who don’t believe women are represented fairly. My favorite of the series is the one below, I’ll have a much better photo of this one soon…

All and all, a fun experience and it definitely lead the way for more shows to come. Not everyone’s first show can be in the Louvre and it won’t always be perfect, but you have to start somewhere. So hopefully this inspires those that haven’t done the gallery thing yet to just do it. If you want to be an big time artist, you HAVE TO.

 

So thankful for the opportunity!

Stay tuned for more of these to come and let me know what you think!

 

The Ship Life

What have I been up to for the past 3 months?

I have been working as an airbrush artist on cruises, mostly sailing the Bahamas and its surrounding islands. Needless to say, it has been an interesting life so far.

Many sights, loads of new and very different people I have meet from all over the world, and an experience like none other. It’s been rough at times, but in the end, I know it is something that has inspired me and made me a much stronger person. It’s hard to leave home and go on what can be considered a rockstar life. Always on the move, no breaks, and working in front of people on a daily basis as you try to keep a smile on your face. At the end of the day, I do not regret a thing. I missed gallery opportunities and potential other jobs, and my friends and family constantly ask when will I return. But it’s a once in a lifetime experience and I’m glad I took it. Definitely some new work is sure to come from this and you should stay tuned in the near future to see it.

Until next time…

A Hint of What’s to Come…

Posted: November 26, 2011 in updates

Here is just a sample of what’s to come. Above is one page of a children’s book that I worked on. Below, one of the only collages I have done. Stay tuned as I talk about this and more stuff!

See ya soon!

Hey everyone!

Posted: November 18, 2011 in updates

Welcome! Thanks for checking out the site, people!

I just wanted to say much apologizes for the lack of updates recently. I do have a legit excuse, I swear! For the past month or so, I have been employed with a major cruise line, doing airbrush art and portraits, and… it’s very difficult to update with no time or internet.

But I promise some major updates in the next month. First week in December is Art Basel for those in the Miami area. It’s the biggest art event we have in Florida, so I may be a part of it. Stay tuned for that and if you’re in Miami, check it out!

So apologizes once again and please enjoy the site! Trust me, there will be much more to come!

Creep Cinema 2011 entry

Posted: September 21, 2011 in gallerytalk, updates

Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery had an open call for artists for their October group show entitled “Creep Cinema.” It’s all about horror movies! Hey, I love horror movies and art so this was a no-brainer.

I included this piece into the show, which I called “American Horror Gothic.”

Set in a familiar setting with two very familiar horror icons, this piece can be seen at the show from October 1 to November 12 and the gallery itself is located inside of one of the biggest comic book shops in Florida and maybe even the U.S., TATE’S Comics.

So if you’re in the Lauderhill, FL area, come by and check out what is going to be a big show, not to mention a whole lot of comics!

For more info, go to their website www.bearandbird.com and hope to see you guys there!
