This summer I had the opportunity to create a wonderful mural to honor my lovely parents. Something I've been wanting to do for a while now. It is definitely one of my highlights of the year so far. Thanks to Estrella Jalisco and Thrillist for sponsoring this project and documenting it in such a great way. Check out the video, in depth interview, and pics below.

Yesterday I led another one of my street art mural tours in L.A. I had the pleasure of showing the murals and art of our wonderful city to a nice sized group from FOCA. We walked around the alley projects near Gabba Gallery and ended in the Arts District at the Container Yard. I love the excitement in people's eyes when they experience something they've never seen before!

I was recently commissioned to create these fun and colorful kids portraits by a man who wanted to surprise his wife with a unique birthday gift! Although it was a tight deadline, we were all really happy with the way they turned out! If you'd like to commission some of your own portraits, contact me: email@example.com
Although painting in hot, humid, and thunderstorm conditions of up to 110 on the heat index is not one of my specialties, I was able to get a nice production done over a couple days last week while visiting Tulsa, Oklahoma. Thanks to @JakeBson (aka YoMoms) for teaming up with me and getting this wall for us!
