I cannot think of a better style of music to initiate a binge or pre party. From Herbie Hancock to Felguk, Electro is a genre of music that kick-started so many styles we rage to today. And much like the way we danced on our first "date", Electro is upbeat, full of funk, and sparks a light within our souls.
Here was a concept for Dance Safe's new Harm reduction cards. It was turned down for having a Human form in the image, which can imply consumption of a substance. I'll take this opportunity to detach myself from representational art and explore pure abstract. In other words, less photoshop, more zbrush.

I've been creating Desert Hearts artwork for 2 years now. I cannot wait to make more art and memories at this, my favorite festival.
If you love trippy fashion, incredible beats, and an unbeatable vibe, you will fall in love with Desert hearts as I and so many other artists have.
Thank you, Desert Hearts for your continued support of my work and for spreading the love through your speakers, across the universe.

Most of this year, I have felt withered and weak. Beyond the politics which I watch turn my peers against each other, I have felt my work so insignificant. The only thing I had to hold onto was my waning ability to connect with people at live events. So when Grateful Generation asked if I would paint live at their ABunDance Neverland Halloween event, I took the opportunity to reconnect and re-invigorate my love of art by allowing the Patrons of AbunDance to also draw upon the piece I had started.
As a Faerie of the event scribbled vague tentacles upon this piece, She told me that my 20 Day Binge series showed her, "I have and will always have everything I need". I took this as a reminder that scarcity is bullshit, society creates roles not jobs, and the the powers which make our generation so great, the power which liberate us are love and Creativity. Thank you Grateful Generation for having me out,
thank you to my friends both new and old who helped hoist me back on my feet. If there is one thing I know after this event and after recent world events is that we are about to get some truly great art and music in the coming years.

I wanted to be a concept artist at one point, Until I discovered that concept artists spend so much time drawing that they never actually get the chance to meet a real mermaid hooper.
I hope all you real mermaids out there are staying cool this summer.
I have always known Oakland to be a city of unrest. More recently, the people of Oakland have stood up not only for themselves, but also people around our country who are being sentenced with injustice. I cannot claim to be a victim of the same oppression that Oakland faces everyday. But I do not feel right making any further art without pointing out how strong Oakland is. Their history, Their progression, culture, art, and honor.
When San Francisco wouldn't give me the time of day, Oakland welcomed me with open arms. Oakland showed me that the most romantic experiences in life are free, riches can be taken away and your people are forever. Thank you Oakland, your outward growth inspires the world.
In the pursuit of aesthetic perfection, my next series will delve into the design mastery of H.R Giger and Drum&Bass. Both of which are new interests of mine, as of 2016. Maybe I'll create masterpieces to be cherished through out the pantheon of human history, or maybe I'll just look like a poser. You decide.
And a happy 420!
Merry Bicycle Day! I hope you all have been trippy so that Father LSD Clause leaves gifts of glee on your couch!
Today we celebrate Albert Hoffman's discovery of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD)
Regardless of public opinion on psychedelics, we cannot refute the fact that acid has, and still persists to embed inspiration into humanities creativity and cultural movements.
I personally owe much of my career and prosperity to this unstable substance. I see color so vividly, I see patterns and depth within all matter, and I've gained a courageous appreciation for life's uncontrollable chaos.
To all my friends who may have prepared liquid love for today's fuckery, please stay safe, help eachother, and rememebr why Albert Hoffman called LSD his "Problem Child"
Stay trippy, fam! (listen to psytrance)
Fun Ganesha inspired WIP I'm creating to celebrate the union of two great music groups. Pink Mammoth and Desert Hearts. I feel this Patron of the arts will need a few more hours of work before I feel he's complete. But not before my friends, family, and I share what is to be an incredible weekend at Desert Hearts Spring Festival 2016!
Looking forward to pushing pixels with one of my favorites crews!
