Here’s what this bot I posted earlier looked like before the final black outline. The interesting/terrifying thing about working with paint versus a digital file is that so many details get permanently lost & covered up. You have to fully commit to every decision. There’s alway a risk that the piece will be ruined, but that’s just part of the adventure. ART!

On 10/27/2013 I painted a giant robot in an alley as part of the Community Canvases “Heighten the Heights” street art event

Here are the finished screen printed posters for the Schwervon/Ronald Raygun/Jack Toft show! I’ll have a few of these for sale at the event, and if there are any leftover I’ll put them online.

Glow in the dark record bot, displayed and sold at Crafty Bastards in early November.  I don’t think anyone who saw this at the show caught the connection between the album title and the purple/green/orange color scheme…

This summer, Buffalo Rising took a few really great photos of me while I was out creating some chalk art, so I just wanted to share them here!

A Main Street Message: Artists Draw People 

Music is Art paints a picture of artistic Buffalo

I had a great time drawing this giant chalk robot at the Music is Art festival a few weeks ago. I was right near one of the DJ booths, and I can’t even tell you how much I loved working on a piece while jamming to ridiculously good dance music.

For my Dad’s birthday, I painted him a portrait of Cy-Kill. He’s one of the reasons I’m such a huge robot fan, when I was a little kid he’d buy two of every Gobot, one for me and one for his collection (which, despite being packed away in boxes somewhere, is amazing.) I was such a lucky kid to have a dad that would randomly bring home awesome robot toys, just because he stopped at the toy store and thought they were neat.
