Behold The Next Thing

Some of my favorite moments as an artist are when a new product line is created. I am not merely talking about a new piece nor even a new collection. I am talking about an entire new line. It has a few months since it happened last but nonetheless, I did it again. Since the new gallery opened in the spring of 2016 my focus has been diverted to the preparation and delivery of all  the established products from the existing lines well represented for obvious commercial reasons. One night is […]

Doing The Good Work

It was nice to get involved in the lives of orphans once again. I dont understand how I continue to visit exotic places only to end up experiencing that which is lived on a constant basis by the local population. In this case it was Medellin Colombia.

These orphanages seem to operate in the same fashion as orphanages in Honduras. They help to kids for four main reasons: 1) Kids that have no parents. 2) Kids that have been abandoned […]

Free Beans in Medellin, Colombia

Realidad Magica (Magical Reality) is what this set of Free Beans is entitled… fitting since most of you may already know that Colombia is said to be the mother of Magical Realism. As always I had a fantastic time getting to know the city hiding my Beans in plain site. For the dispersal of this set, the neighborhood of El Poblado was chosen because of the proximity to the hotel where I happen to currently reside. I find El Poblado to be very posh with its fine dining, fine art […]

On my knees in Pacific Beach, California

Next time you are in Pacific Beach you may want to stop by Isabel’s Cantina. Not only will you have the opportunity to view my latest piece but you will also be treated just right. Great food, tasty food and great service. Because the piece was created during regular business hours and the restaurant patrons were present, I was restricted from using aerosol due to the fumes. I used all acrylic paints to make this one. As most of you know line art with brush is much slower than using […]
