I just landed back on Oakland from an art intensive collaboration with DeviantArt down in SOCAL. This is just a teaser of what will be a whole story, pictures are just hitting the interweb and I am going to take a nap. 

But I am giddy like a school girl and want to share a taste of appreciation I have for my new team of friends. The party was perfect, thousands of smiling faces sharing great music and amazing weather.

Respect and trust is what I am talking about! Huge Respect to Aunny, Shyree, Angelo, Mike D, Ando, Kelson, and the rest of Team Awesome DA and PF!

Doing this piece and the conversations surrounding it again reinforced the value of my team! BIG UPS to EMPIRE SQUARED and ALWAYS ON TOUR for LIFE! Giving me the building blocks of practice to get up and rock no question!!!! I love, and miss you guys!

Mask study drawings

This week I took a day off of the digital work and went into nature to draw. Of course I had to scan and tweak a bit. Here is a set of masks inspired by Bali artisans mixed with animals. It is really pleasing to visually mix multiple things into a new form. It is also fun to work with symmetry. Enjoy
