Ugh, this piece feels like it’s taking forever and that it will never end. Appropriate considering it’s inspiration. Plus, my hands are sweaty and it’s making the tape not sticky. Whine.
Fun fact: the skeleton is made with glow in the dark duct tape. It’s pretty killer.
Here’s another piece that I started last Summer but couldn’t finish cause of my stoopid back injury. Still seems relevant.
Many thanks and much love to James and Bud for their patience!! They commissioned a ‘sexy cowboy’ from me last summer, right before the back injury that kept me abed for months on end. I finally completed ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’. He’s 24x36” and was inspired by the Eagle Creek Fire. Remember how the sky was orange and hazy? It was terrible and sad but surreal and beautiful, too.
Mother said there’d be days like this. Days when you just have to rip it all up and start over.
Had a terrific Memorial Day Weekend but now it's time to get back to work!

Congratulations to Voodoo Doughnut on the opening of their new shop in Orlando, Florida! Here’s some pics of the mural that I did for the new location. Many, many thanks to Ursula Flores, Andrew Simard and Morgan Perry for helping me create ‘Your Wish is My Command’ while I was flat on my back, awaiting surgery. Couldn’t have done it without y’all!
Had a change of heart regarding the color scheme. Was going to layer the yellow over the pink but it was too sugary, too sweet. Have been cutting this pattern for days. How many? I've lost track. And it's still not done. Send thoughts and prayers.
