Vote for Eazy!



This a shirt design I did for a contest held by Karmaloop.com. The theme is to spread HIV/AIDS awareness to the youth culture. I felt an image of Eazy-E would be powerful, because he is/was major icon in urban/youth culture. Since he was such a legendary figure that passed from the virus, the illness felt much more tangible and real. I tried to make an something that could spread awareness, and celebrate the life at the same time.


Also while you can, come through like the Wu and cop one of my friend Dave's ODB shirts.

They're selling out fast, so get there while you can. I didn't take mine off for two weeks straight!

This is some artwork done by one of my students, Alex Ponce.
This kid's done some really remarkable work during class. This is some of his outside work.
His work is so intuitive, and his ability to get savage with his materials is amazing.

Keep up the good work lil homie!! Looking forward to seeing what the future has in store.

Nothin' but a Good Time




The past two weeks have been really fun. Got to see some TV Carnage at the Silent Movie Theatre which was really fun, and got to go to the Animal Collective show which was also really fun and psychedelic.

I'm also on summer break from teaching, so I get to recharge the batteries.
These are some sculptures I made for a fundraiser that the organization I work with had a week ago.

These guys were inspired by some of the students I've had over the past year 
















The Krew
In process...

I was working at this painting at the time, and it seemed like the the 3-D pieces and the painting were feeding off each other.

Landmarks

I caught this bad boy rolling through my neck of the woods last Saturday, and it easily made my day.

I also had a little feature on the Beautiful Decay website a few weeks ago.I have been a big fan of the magazine since the beginning.  Thanks so much guys! The newest one will feature an interview with my big homey, David Jien. He's been super good for a long time. Dave why you gotta kill it so hard?!

Also at there are t-shirts for sale for the upcoming show at Vermillion Gallery in Seattle. Cop one soon, because they are limited edition! There are also interviews with many of the artists that are participating in the show, such as Marco Zamora, and Albert Reyes, whose works I have dug for a long time.

Last but not least I wanna give a big birthday shout out to my main man, the One and Only, Big Bad EKUNDAYO!!! Happy 26!!!.

Ekundayo continues to drop lyrical science throughout his path.

I got a lil interview at http://desmadrearte.wordpress.com/ for the upcoming show in May.
The website posts an interview with one artist participating in the show per day.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the work that the artists are making for the show, and really wish that I could make it out to Seattle. There are a lot awesome artists that I'm exited to show with, including  my schoolyard chums Ana Serrano and Jeaneen Carlino.


This is a really cool and funny interview with Rob Sato at his recent show at Giant Robot. He has awesome work!
I've never met him, but we both have artwork in the UGLAR Book, which speaks about the history, biology, architecture, art and scumlife of the Los Angeles River.

Here is a recent mural that some of the artists in the book did, which is located on Venice and La Brea in L.A.

 I wish I could've helped out, but I've have to hermit out at the lab, for the past few months. 



Have a good weekend

SikWidit

I 've been sick for the past two days. Other than sleeping, going to the doctor, some gross stuff, I've been on a heavy computer binge, which gives me the opportunity to let you know what's the haps with the craps.
Wednesday is the best because t 9:00 there is a brand new episode of Epicly Later'd.
There is no show that I look forward to as much as this, and the episodes are only 5 to 10 mins long.
I especially fiend because, the series in on Guy Mariano. One of the best skateboarders ever.
Ever. 


I also saw the movie Bigger Stronger Faster, which is a great great documentary on steroid use in the United States.

Also catching up on my novelas.

makes me feel very nostalgic .



I also got my pieces finished up for the Street Fighter show at Nucleus this weekend.


I have a lot of old drawings saved up from when I was a kid, and there was a phase when I was always drawing Street Fighter characters, scenarios, and crossbreeding them with my other favorite games.

I was about 10 at the time so I was also drawing characters based of the artwork of Snoop Dogg's debut album Doggystyle.


And I also mad an anti-drug comic starring Beavis and Butthead.

Unfortunately I had to call in sick for work today. The kids I am working with are real cool  
Here's some artwork from one of the classes I taught last semester. Fun Times

Fun TimesFun TimesAlso BIG BIG ups to my friends that just graduated from Art Center!
