This last week I had the opportunity to paint a portrait of Waterman and Santa Cruz Legend Jack O'neill. This was done all with MTN94 spray cans. Check out the work in progress pics below!
Last week Thursday March 24, 2016, worlds greatest shop dog Grizz The Wizz turned 4 years old. Yeah he got treats, played with his dog homies at his dog party. I also took a minute on Thursday to let him watch me paint a quick portrait of him on a TV found from behind the dumpster behind the art studio. It was a chance to try out my new Montana 94 colors RV-96-99. Take a look at some of his best pictures taken from this year, and the aerosol piece I painted on the TV.
This weekend was my birthday weekend and I got to treat myself to a little birthday gift. A weekend of doing art. I dropped into Coast Airbrush and teamed up with Gear Duran and Wiser Oner to create a scary looking Alien Mural. Check out this pix below.
Recently I had the opportunity to paint a mural for the YouTube channel Local's Closet. Courtney Mayer, the brains behind the YouTube channel made her way down to Newport Beach from LA to film this time lapse. She requested an elephant over a world map with the name Local's Closet written in the corner. Check out the time lapse video above.
