It all started when one of my collectors asked me to paint something fun on a piece of Samsonite luggage for his trip to Miami. The piece ended up being such a big hit that we decided to document the trip and all his adventures through the eyes of "Maleta Man" (maleta is Spanish for suitcase).  You can follow the journey on my Instagram account just search for the hashtag #MaletaMan !!  Here's some of the adventure...


My newest mural created for Casa La Golondrina in Downtown LA's historic Olvera Street Plaza.

The mural is a quick reflection of the history and culture of both the restaurant and the city.  In the center is the word "LA" in a simple yet contemporary urban graffiti style. The iconic City Hall building appears to the right and the bird to the left is a "golondrina" (swallow) which the restaurant is named after.  The chiles and tomatoes a nod to the savory and authentic food served there everyday.
It's all tied together by the undulating movement of the blue folkloric dress motif.

Very soon I will be making special limited edition prints available through my site and the restaurant as well. In the meantime, enjoy the pics and video below or simply stop by the eatery and check it out for yourself!

Thanks to Vivien for making this happen and to Beth for hooking us up!



Ice Cream Lab just opened their second location in Pasadena and I was asked again to help them with the interior murals. Apparently my mad scientist character has become a big hit!
Look out for more collaborations as they keep expanding their ice cream empire!
