Anti-war art has always been some of my favorite.  Many of my fellow artists have created some inspiring anti war art.  Some of my favorites are the iconic Shepard Fairey, and Ron English.  They have taken serious political issues and used their fine art craft to create a message.   I realize that sometimes war is inevitable, but I feel like now a days it all has hidden agendas.  I was happy to be chosen to participate in a “MAKE ART NOT WAR” themed show.  The piece I created is a simple, playful but powerful, interpretation of the words “make art not war”.  I am stoked on the way this painting came out and have got such a positive reaction from the shows and viewers that I will be getting signed numbered prints of it made.  Stay tuned for release date.

I was lucky enough to be in Chicago for the lollapalooza weekend!  It was amazing!  I got to see family, party with friends for my birthday, and check out some awesome shows and galleries!  One in particular was the Art Alliance, Provocateurs! This show contained over 40 artists including some of my all time favorites; Shepard Fairey, Keith Harring, Space Invader, D*FACE, SWOON, REVOK, RETNA, and WK Interact.  While in town I also got to see some of my art along side of the OBEY GIANT campaign and around  Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs Stadium!  It was a very inspirational trip and will help push me toward future goals.

I was one of the top winners of the TUACA NAPKIN ART CONTEST!!  A few months back tuaca liqueur held a cocktail napkin drawing contest in which hundreds of entries applied.  I did the drawing below with prismacolor markers and a fine tip pen.  A few days ago I received an email stating that I am one of the top winners!  One of the prizes was that they will be printing my art on their napkins, so keep an eye out for them at your local bar!
