The Whip!

So this is actually old news, but! I painted my car (94 Civic) to coincide with my Emerging Artist Exhibit I had at Artspace earlier this year. The conditions were good and I was able to get a nice clean picture of it. Enjoy!

86-it CanVas

So if you missed seeing my "CanVas" in person at Artsplosure you can see it here. I modeled it off of what I did to my car(which I will post about soon). It was alot of fun and it was to raise awareness for a greater cause. 86it!

Art On The Move

I was recently informed that my submission was chosen along with 11 other local artists for the Art On The Move project! The project itself began in 2007 and has continued in a bi-yearly fashion. I consider myself very fortunate because the pool of applicants was quite large. A local CAT(Capital Area Transit) bus will be half wrapped on both sides and ready to roll out this April. I am very excited to see it in person!

Updates and news about The Auction!

So I've been slacking a fair bit in this department, but I've been up to quite a bit, not as much as I should but more than I've been ready for. Artspace has been a pretty awesome experience so far and on top of meeting some awesome people I've been able to push myself a little bit harder and a bit further than I have before. That being said, if you had a chance to make it to the Block Gallery last month these pics won't be big news to you, BUT if you didn't then I hope you enjoy. For the exhibition I was asked to pay homage to a celebrity and my choice seemed quite natural considering the direction I was feeling with my work. Up until that point I had decided to stop depicting celebrities for various reasons. The most important being that they receive enough attention as it is. The others being related to copyright issues, improper use of image etc etc. I will have to say it was fun becoming obsessed with someone, image hunting, blog reading etc. The bigger relief came at the conclusion thankfully.

All in all it was a fun experience and a good way for me to end on a high note in the arena of celebrity depiction which leads me onto the next and most improtant topic... The Auction

The Auction

So I've decided that it is in the best interest of these pieces that I auction them off. I love and adore each one but I won't have the space for them in the coming months when I get the heave-ho from Artspace. So what? Well, if you happen to be in the area, or not, you'll have a chance of owning one of my pieces pretty darn cheap if you're lucky.

I plan on starting the bid on each piece at $75. The auction will take place on December 3rd in studio 108 at Artspace from 6p until 9:15 after which the winners will be announced and the piece(s) will be taken to their new forever home(s).
So what if I don't live in Raleigh, or can't be there? You can hit me up @ and tell me the bid you want to make on the particular piece. Keep in mind that the bids increase in 25 dollar increments. I will add your name to the list with the price you're willing to bid. Also for those of you outside the city and/or state, I DO have the ability to ship to any coast or any country, and if that happens to be your case we can settle up on shipping after the auction. I plan on creating a press release soon which I will send to through the proper channels so keep your eyes peeled. If you have any questions about the Auction or the pieces, feel free to hit me up at

...was super fun and this post is super late in posting. If you didn't know, I am currently Artspace's REAR (Regional Emerging Artist in Residence). It's an awesome opportunity for me and I hope by the end of the residence that it shows. These were the goods.

I think for September's first Friday I'll make shirt versions, and possibly paper prints with nice frames? Each one of the smaller pieces were made on plywood with a hardboard backing. I key-holed the backs with my router so they would hang flush to the wall. They were painted using spray paint and stencils for the colors and then screenprinted with acrylic ink.

The image to the right is a 36"x60" crop of SUN that I posted earlier.



I was in late at night and thought to take some pictures of where I create. I've been permitted this wonderful space by the authority of Rusty Beans and T Bird LaCombe.
I believe my crowning achievement to be the folding work table. Using some scrap plywood and 2x4's and with the assistance of door hinges I was able to create/eliminate space. Also you'll see my growing collection of paint. I have been proponent of Rustoleum for many moons(and still am!), but after trying Montana Gold I've had to shelve them for now.
l also threw in a pic of a growing collection of wood panel(canvas). I am a hoarder of sorts and found my collection of blank wood growing faster than I could paint it. I hope by the end of the year the pile should be reduced, eliminated, or made to better use by way of constructing something larger and possibly heavier.
The last pic is of the lovely ladies that help me create my masterpieces, without them I would be reduced to purchasing canvas, who does that anyway?
