I was still in art college, I was 25. Oh so young! I had my own car for the first time in my life, so my girlfriend and I got to explore a bit. Things I remember vividly- art openings in L.A., cactus hunting in the Mohave, and I was doing some of my last graffiti art for a decade. Art college stuff, you know.. and getting started in my career.
I feel like right now I'm working on the types of paintings I wanted to make in 2000 but hadn't yet acquired the know-how. In the last decade I went through a more "crafty" experimental stage, making tons of small pieces, I tried stenciling, collage, drippiness, and a bunch of different techniques. At some point it all felt like visual gimmicks to me, so I began to just get back to pure painting the last couple of years and it feels great.
When you're 25 you can't really look that far ahead. Shit, I have a real tough time looking to 2020! My kids will be 11 and 15! Jeez...
I thought it was a drinking website that also had art.
It has really opened my work up to thousands of people around the globe. FF was one of the first sites that interviewed me and got my paintings out there. Thanks Fecal Face! I also check it daily to see what's going on.
Yeah but it's all old stuff.
Love to see you. I'd love to, but probably can't make it...
I just had a show in NYC and I'm taking things slow. Working on some screen prints and want to try oil painting. And I want to catch up on watching TV. Yes, I'm down with TV, fuckin' Weeds, Dexter, Whale Wars, and few more I'm trying to watch. I just want to veg out...
