The date for COOLBEANS is coming up. I have been spending all of my free time working on several pieces. I just finished one of the sculptures. Can you guess what it is?
A few months ago, Ruben Urrea Moreno and Rock CYFI Martinez invited me to show some artwork with them. The date is slowly approaching! It’s been exciting working with these guys and planning everything out. Still lots of work to do, but the hard work will be worth it!
These are some small sketches I’ve spent time working on lately. I have not put much energy into large projects but things always seem to be progressing slowly.
I just painted this cow skull for the Holy Cow Skull show at Zoe Boutique on Saturday, April 26th from 6pm to 9pm. It was a fun exercise to paint on this uncommon object. For this piece, I found myself working on a recurring symbol in my work. A lock and key reminds me of the struggle to decipher life and its mysteries. We look for the key to unlocking happiness and satisfaction on a daily basis. It […]
I designed this for a friend’s Slider. I sketched it out, edited it in illustrator and laser printed it onto the Slider. Check out the BORN1985 website to see more Slider pictures.
A friend asked me to contribute to a group of hand painted skateboard. I hadn’t painted in a long time so I thought it would be fun to come up with something. It took me a while to find time to complete this but it was a good feeling to pick up a brush again. Having freedom to put an idea together and execute it is a good feeling. I work on big projects on […]
This project originated from an idea of designing a seat that appeared unstable and chaotic. I wanted to balance coarse geometric shapes and simple forms of construction with subtle curves and refined finishes. The stool is 30″ tall. The bottom of the seat is constructed from hot-rolled, mild steel. It was painted black and scuffed to highlight coarse grind marks and mill scale. The top of the seat is polished stainless steel. The stool is titled S01. It will be auctioned at the CRUSH Auction at the Tucson Museum […]
Lately I have been asking myself why I continue to draw. I have slowed down on the amount of personal art work I do because of the time and effort my job requires. But for some reason I still like to take a few minutes a week to draw. The exercise of drawing by hand has become a bit of a habit. Although I don’t go through sketchbooks as quickly as I used to, I […]
The stool is a tri-symmetrical design constructed of stainless steel and mild steel. It is a structurally strong furniture piece inspired by modern industrial forms of design and fabrication. More to come.
The human invention of tools is a pivotal moment in the history of man. It separated us from animals. It carried us to a new level of existence and elevated us to the top of the food chain. When man used his hands to master tooling and crafting he became a whole new being. Ever since, people have handed down ideas and methods of creation along to the following generations. I love to see skilled, hand-crafted work. […]
