BR x State of Craft Beer: 24hr Telethon

A few friendly faces stopped by to chat beer, weather, and music.

Matt Janzen set out all across the state meeting brewers and their passionate communities. He refined that journey into a 272 full-color page tome in honor of craft beer. So, it didn't surprise me when he set out to put on a 24 hour beer-infused live video book-sale-telethon at Enlightened Brewery.

Matt invited me to paint during the telethon and the painting was raffled off to one lucky book buyer during our time slot.

Nick Pipitone, my good friend and old boss stopped through the studio for a visit a few weeks ago. We chatted about the journey I've been on from time spent in college finding my passion, working advertising, aspirations and inspirations. I love having folks visit, especially photographers. Seeing my workspace through other's eyes is unique every time.

Scary Aviary @ BVGN Bubbler Studios

Bay View Gallery Night has come again, and I am grateful to have been invited to display some artwork at the Hide House and Bubbler Studios. 

Recently, I was lucky to collaborate with the talented miss Kaila Q, painter and fellow pizza phreak. Together we have created some sizable paintings with feathers foremost. In addition to our multiple collabs, we both are bringing some never before seen originals. (I will also be displaying a few older bird paintings, on loan from their current owners.)

For one night only, come check out this blast of birds, collection of canary counterparts, avian atrocities, far-away fowl, and rocketbooster roosters.

First Solo Exhibition!

Tonight, I am hanging my first solo exhibition due to open September 5th at HotPop in Milwaukee, WI. This inaugural step into the gallery world feels like a pretty hefty step in the right direction.

Being that it is my first individual exhibition, I thought it fitting to take time to look back on the mass of work I had created since the end of my time at university. It proved to be an interesting experience.

Leaving almost all Bigshot Robot apparel items, concepts, and characters out - I got the chance to relearn who I am as an artist outside of the brand. Being able to create imagery for the sake of learning and improving my skills for no other reason than to merely make and produce stuff

Anatomy, typography, getting a nose just right, or letting all rules by the wayside just to see what the depths of your mind can create is in a way - freeing. Sometimes it can be a bit unsettling, but my usual goal whilst doodling tends to be either that of humoring or freaking myself out. And more often than not, some sort of success comes from each scribble.
