Diversity through the arts

The summer is flying by and in the midst of creating, wheeling and dealing I have neglected to let you know, (if there is anyone reading this stuff anyway), all this cool stuff that has been happening around me. For one, I was invited to paint live as part of the entertainment package for the 4th of July celebration at the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico. At first I was hesitant, but I am glad that we ended up going… but I must tell you that I was a bit […]

Monthly HOOK-Up (July 2017)

Thank you for all the support… It is because of all your demand that I work this hard. The Monthly HOOK-Up project is my way of giving back. In the last couple of days I received a couple emails requesting that the next monthly HOOK-Up should involve the Beans. And since the Monthly HOOK-UP – June 2017 featured t-shirts, I was not about to do the same thing for this month. So here it is… an opportunity for you to get an original for $10.00!!! This is a series of […]

Painting Our Border Wall

This past weekend, shortly after I had finished painting my designated portion of the border wall, I was asked a series of questions during an interview. The question seemed very simple at first but as I applied the reasoning process I was taught many moons ago in a senior year Medical Ethics class, I came to find that I was treading very interesting water. The question was as follows: “Are artists responsible for changing the world?” I opened with a simple statement: if the responsibility to change the world was […]

Monthly Hook-Up (June 2017)

So, in the last couple of weeks, I got a handful of emails that were not necessarily too friendly. The words may have been sarcastic in tone, but they all shared a common theme: Where the f*** is this months HOOK-Up? I took the time to answer personally and I apologized profusely. Also I promised that I would make it up to them in June… well, here we are halfway through June and I am finally following through on my promise. Yes, better late than never. I am offering $5 […]

Tijuana, Mexico becomes number 32

It has been a minute since the last Free Beans Run in Austin, Texas. This past Sunday I had a chance to walk the streets of Tijuana and I was able to drop a set of 24 original Beans. The streets were very busy and as always the locals were very puzzled when they noticed my activity. I am always amazed how many feelings and emotions run through me when doing this project… I have done it so many times that I thought that by now, I would have lost […]

Encinitas alley gets a new mural

What a joy it is to spend 4 days in an alley 2 blocks away from Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, California. I had the pleasure of meeting special people from many different ideologies and cultures and at the same time I was allowed to do what I do best, spread color where it needs it most. This project was made possible by the City of Encinitas Mizel Grant Program and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Grant Program in collaboration with Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association and Union Cowork. I […]
