DREAMS COME TRUE

My next solo show opens in Berlin Germany on Saturday June 4th at the Circylar Gallery. The show will be a selection of the 400 skateboard graphics I have designed over the last 20 years, and a collection of screen prints on paper. The title of the show, “Dreams Come True” refers to my dream as a teenager to move to California to attend art school, and hopefully someday draw skateboard graphics for a living. As unlikely as this goal seemed at the time, I worked super hard and eventually made that career happen. My hope is that this exhibition could inspire younger artists to chase their dreams no matter how impossible. Huge thanks to my old friend Jurgen Blumlein, DLX distribution, Nike SB, and Element skateboards for making this show happen. See you in Berlin in June.

THE FISH TANK GALLERY

I recently had the opportunity to open a little gallery in my beloved neighborhood, North Beach. My very generous neighbors next door at The North Beach Pipeline Marijuana dispensary have gifted me this amazing space to use as my studio in the back, and a small gallery in the front. I exhibit a combination of my artwork, and some of my talented friends I have been fortunate to work with over the years. My focus is to use this space to generate foot traffic, revenue, and good vibes for North Beach as my neighborhood is going through a truly magical resurgence. Please stop by and ring the doorbell, I am almost always working in the back 9am-9pm, with a long lunch break in the middle. 1331 Grant Avenue, North Beach, San Francisco, California.

HSAC ANNUAL INVITATIONAL SCREEN PRINT PROJECT

Each year the Haight Street Art Center will invite artists to visit San Francisco, and create screen prints in their state of the art print studio with master printer Drew Jorstad. The prints will be for sale at the end of each project, and the artists can choose a local non-profit that hey would like to support with a portion of the profits.

This year myself, Mike Giant, and Morning Breath Design were invited to get together and create some rad new screen prints. We chose to work with the non-profit SF Skate Club, primarily because the founder of the SFSC Shawn Connelly was sponsored by Think Skateboards. Coincidentally the skateboard manufacturer that myself and the other artists worked for in the 90’s, and how we all met each other.

Huge thanks to the HSAC staff, Drew Jorstad and Robin Gascon for making this all happen. There are still a few prints left if you are interested in supporting this project:

THE CAFFEINATED CRANIUM

Introducing The Caffeinated Cranium, a 12 oz travel skull coffee mug I drew for the homies @fellowproducts available now at their San Francisco retail store, or online at fellowproducts.com

I suffer from some really unpleasant reoccurring nightmares, and my morning africano from @caffetriesteofficial , (the oldest Espresso Bar on the West Coast) usually brings me back to the real world. This travel skull mug is supposed to wake you up, remind you of your mortality, and that life is short and bitter sweet, so get to it!

CHEATERS, LIARS, AND THEIVES

I created this recent set of paintings called “Cheaters, Liars, and Theives” inspired by the simple fact that you just can’t trust anyone, ever.

They are all on their way down south to be displayed this weekend at Complexcon with my homies from The Hashimoto Gallery

Please contact the gallery to see a collectors preview, or to purchase these original works:

ANNUAL INVITATIONAL SCREEN PRINT EVENT AT THE HAIGHT STREET ART CENTER

Last week I had the pleasure to participate in the very first Annual Invitational Screen Print event at The Haight Street Art Center, where my Bronze Bunny Statue lives. This year we invited artists Mike Giant, and Jason Noto and Doug Cunningham from Morning Breath studios to come to San Francisco and create some special screen prints to be released for sale online 11/26/21. This annual event will invite artists whose primary medium is screen printing to visit SF, make some prints to sell on Black Friday, and to raise money and attention for the local charity of their choice. This year we worked with the San Francisco Skate Club. A local non-profit club for young skaters run my my old friend Shawn Connelly. The project was a great success and super fun to do in the HSAC’s state of the art print studio.

ALL SCREEN PRINTS FROM THIS PROJECT WILL BE FOR SALE ONLINE FROM THE HSAC ON NOVEMBER 26TH 2021. PLEASE FOLLOW THE HAIGHT STREET ART CENTER FOR DETAILS!

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS MURAL

I recently had the pleasure to spend a week all alone in Oracle Park to paint a mural for the home town heroes, The San Francisco Giants. I was inspired by my sister’s dogs, and my favorite things about going to a ball game…hot dogs and Beer. Huge thanks and respect to the Giants, CoorsLight and Oracle Park for this delicious opportunity.
