This day, the only one that matters

This weekend I headed down to the Joshua Liner gallery to see the show "The Last Thousand Years" by Evan Hecox. I've been a huge fan of Evan's ever since I started riding skateboards that he designed back in middle school. It was so cool to see his work in real life. I also picked up his book "Urban Abstract," which is amazing as well, the people at Joshua Liner were real cool, and hooked me up with a signed copy. If you have the chance I highly reccomend you check this show out, the gallery is located on 548 west 28th street in New York City.

We also saw a show featuring the paintings and photos of the actor Dennis Hopper. I never realized how talented the guy was.

Then we headed over to the Jonathan Levine gallery on 20th to see the DFace show. Probably one of the coolest installations I've ever seen. I love all the colors he uses.
All in all it was a great weekend. I got to play a block party with my band Wyldlife which was just sooooooo much fun. There is no greater feeling than playing music, especially with your best buds, nothing can possibly compare.
I saw my friend Adam giving really cool sharpie tattoos the other weekend so I asked him to draw rock n roll on my arm. I really dig, think I'll get it done for real.What do you think? check out Adam's blog here:

My eyes are Lungs, I'm a Prophet, and I speak in toungues

So I'm just sitting at my office worker job at the Purchase College Office of Admissions. They've been having me work at the reception desk, which is great because I can spend all day on facebook and surfing the net and stumbling upon new and interesting artists.
Nothing like finding new art.
I landed on the White Walls website which is a gallery in San Fransico that has really cool stuff. I found some photos from a show that Ian Johnson and Albert Reyes had, which seemed really amazing, wish I could have seen it in real life...

Albert Reyes does alot of his work on the covers of books, which I think is so damn cool.

And it doesn't get much cooler than Ian Johnson's portraits of jazz greats.

Until Next Time,

Some old work....

When the summer first began my friends from my old band Liberte asked me to make a design for their EP. So I whipped up this two color lino-cut for them. All EP's are numbered and hand pressed. To hear their music go to
(Oh yeah and that ripping guitar that you hear on the record, thats me.)

I finally finished that poster for BigY supermarkets. Hopefully I'll win that gift card haha.

"I'm Brilliant" Intaglio on rives paper. A few days before I made this etching, I was attacked by a hawk. I was just hanging out in the grass with some friends when a hawk swooped down from a building and flew at me. Luckily I jumped out of the way and was not harmed. It was one of the scariest moments of my life. And I decided to make a print about it. True story I swear.

3 color screenprint I did on some old book pages about castles in France.

"Now I am a gentleman" Intaglio on rives paper.
This is one of my first experiments with the medium intaglio. Intaglio is a printmaking method where you engrave into a sheet of copper, etch it in acid, and make prints from it.

Last april I designed and screenprinted some shirts for my old band brick physics. Were not a band anymore and I don't know what to do with the shirts haha. I still have a ton left, and if anybody wants one let me know.
Thanks to Sam Allen for modeling, he plays guitar in Wyldlife, and he likes to wear lots of belts.

I'm having way to much fun...

So I've been back at school for a week now, and its already been crazy. I managed to miss the last train home from grand central last week, and was stranded in Manhattan, till 5 in the morning. My friends and I ended up just hanging out at McDonald's in time square watching fist fights break out while the police stood there and did nothing, eating expensive pizza, getting my friend's palm read, and eventually passing out on the sidewalk at grand central waiting for it to open.
My work is slowly beginning to pile up, which for right now is a great thing! I've got t-shirts to design and print for the purchase dance conservatory, album art for a friend's band back home, paintings and prints to be made, Wyldlife is starting to get shows (were play the CMJ festival!! so stoked, I'll write more about it later) and Alex, Manuel,Ephraim, and I have begun planning our next art exhibition. Heres a clue as to what it will involve:

This past weekend was a load fun catching up with friends, going to barbecues, and hearing some good live music. I went to a show on Sunday with a ton of great purchase bands, including: the Shakes, Elemeno, Zona Mexicana, my boy Nick Corbo, and Space Ghost Cowboys(it was their cd release show.) Their CD is amazing by the way, check them out on myspace.
I swear that I go to the coolest school in the world.
