LA Daddy!

Sorry for the lack of updates these past couple of weeks. I was lucky enough to be able to come down to L.A. with Mr. Yuta Onoda to live and paint in the studio with Tessar, Yoskay, Scott and Nate. The best way to describe these guys is prolifically talented beasts!....or the art version of Entourage. I feel like i'm learning a ton from watching these guys do their thang. I'm super grateful to be able to work with the bros. Sidebar- free refills....BOOYAH!!

Here's one of the pieces that I've finished since coming down here.

20" by 25", acrylic and ink on paper

On an art note, this piece will be on display in the 3rd annual Culver city Artwalk@ project:gallery. The show kicks off on the 31st of may! I'll be posting some photos of la vie en LA as well as some of the other pieces that will be on display.

take care

Night Eyes

So I just picked up a new camera a little while ago, and I decided to wrangle up a few folks for a midnight adventure to the lakeshore! I was able to grab Greg, Irma, and Ryan to come along for some night time fun...we quickly figured out that night photography is HARD. The night was filled with happy accidents, motion blurs and cartwheels...that's right! It wasn't just gregor and I, but kniivila and christiani threw down on some of those too! We eventually got a handle on the whole shooting at night thing...i tried messing around with it on manual, while Greg and Ryan were using the 'Night portrait' mode....maybe I should've tried the 'Strong Eyes' setting?
