24 x 36 graphite drawing and some translucent lacquers, Montana Alien Espectro. Trying to stick with the drawing development more in this piece.
A meditation from a morpheus place of nature, mechanics,surrealism,plants and continuous transformation. I have my focus on more illustration from this place, not more words right now..
48 x 60 inch canvas , spray paint and a lot of time. Picture taken 07.12.2013, This piece has been a great many things in the process, working with a similar approach as one may do a piece on a wall but due to the studio environment I have been able to do more intimate exploration of the wall. Compression of space has lead me to insight of adaptational techniques with a philosophy somewhat relative to painting on concrete and steel out in the exterior world. My work on canvas has become a type of inner graffiti that has been a defining force of my being as an artist.
work in progress 24 x 36 spray paint on canvas. Mixed techniques at work, some type of ancient symbolism feeling latent in this, I see there developing changes of an inca or mayan similarity in finishing this composition. Language components unearthing.
24 x 30 graphite and spray paint on canvas. Work in progress, not yet titled. Began about April or May 2013. Quickly started but giving it some breathing room while completing other work;this can be said of the process of most of my work. I think of this as juggling chess games or something comparably cerebral and intellectually strategic.
24 x 30 inch canvas, numerous brands and chemistry of spraypaint. Mostly freehand development, mild stencil use trying not to use too much of that technique on this piece. Enjoying the activity of randomness and sub conscious decision making.
Deck that I just finished painting for the Skate Your Fate show at The Fridge Gallery in Washington D.C. Being as tho I live in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am getting ready to package this and put it on it’s way. All is spray paint, some old krylon and rusto used but mostly montana 94. I really like the deck as a canvas.
“ I think that the way boards get destroyed skating has leaked into putting art back onto the board. A product of expression. Literally ”

There were a few years prior to this painting that I had experiences with praying mantis that opened up a new world. Something between the human and also the insect world. Experiences where there was a mutual awareness between my own mind and also the insect. Knowing well the difference between the optics of each species, I began to grow into a world of vision. Broadening my perception, I continued to meditate on looking spectrum ranges,temperature,food,poison and also the kaleidoscopic vision of the world that many insects are said to have. These experiences and influences have carried into a lot of my work over the years since. I felt as if both myself and the universe were looking at each other simultaneously. A reality I have learned to grow further within.
