Had the pleasure of painting an office space in the new IGcreative headquarters in Philadelphia. I’ve been really enjoying painting with a grace of improvisation lately. No real planning and just adapting to any problem that arises as I paint.

As most things in life come unexpected I got a call from my friend Brooks over at Decades hat Co. to invited me to take part in a fish tank installation, for the new Corsa that was opening in a weeks time. (not to mention we needed to leave 48 hours for the water and fish to acclimate before opening.)
The reason I was being brought on board was because the idea for the tank was to be all Legos! Brooks and I stopped by the new Corsa shop on south street that was still very much under construction to check out the tank and feel of the store, then drove to few stores to obtain an amount of lego sets that only exist in most ten year old boys wet dreams.
We divided up the sets and planned a full anarchy assault on the Lego city police. Jail breaks, movie style executions, arson, graffiti, bank robbery, and many more hidden gems amongst the debris an mayhem. I even added a few of my own custom minifigure AirRats to help the lowlifes in their debauchery.
Stop in Corsas new location on south street across the street from our good friends at Tattooed Moms, and check out the Decades Hat co. Soon to drop their newest vintage fabric line! Select pictures of the build and tank bellow.
Also thought this was the perfect time I announce I will be the featured artist at the next PhshTank party presented by Place Your Art Here and hosted by DJ Phsh at Fluid Night club in Philadelphia on Sat July 28th 10pm-2am. I’m still working in what limited edition artist multiples I will be making to give away shirts, prints, minifigure pins, or something new. (Leave your thoughts and ideas what I should give away as a comment or email email@example.com)
I was asked to paint a few walls in the new Boogie Nights. I drew up some stuff, stopped by Unherd in Philly to grab some paint, and got to work on the main wall with cameras rolling. Stay tuned for more news coverage about the club and my painting. Big Thanks to DJ SEGA for letting me use this awesome track. Boogie Nights reopens in its new location inside Tropicana Atlantic city on May 4th 2012.
A few days ago I was cruising my IG thread and saw a post by Crystal Shephard saying she had picked up some glow in the dark ink. She also said if anyone wanted to collaborate she would be interested. So I emailed her some faces I had done and she ran with it, doing a set of prints and stickers that I was extremely excited for. The series is very limited. Check back for sales info!
A few weeks ago a friend of mine who works for Green Saw design & build asked if I’d be interested in painting their giant roll down gate. The gate was part of their new involvement in First Friday art exhibits at their 4th and brown shop location. I was unable to attend Fridays opening and door reveal (I’m currently in Miami for art Basel) but guessing from the amazing wood working everyone does there I’m sure it was a great show. So with out further talk here’s the work in progress shots and finished piece and Thanks to Amber @ green saw for putting everything together and to Sloth33 for his help!
