Color Blast From The Past

A new piece for an Austin exhibition on December 5, 2009 at the Maranda Pleasant Gallery. This year's 12x12 Exhibition procedes will go to the Explore Austin charity.

"Through mentoring and outdoor adventure, the program’s mission is to create opportunities for inner-city boys to develop the skills, tools, and habits they need in order to become effective leaders in their own communities."

My piece that I've contributed to the show was created on Arches Watercolor Paper that was then cut, folded, glued and stapled to a 12x12 panel.

I used watercolor, prismacolor marker, colored pencil, charcoal, and graphite pencil to create this retina blasting abstract pattern.

You can read more about the show's history, here.

I marked down some prices just in time for the holidays! The Hallowzine + Tee combo (bottom left) for $15 is a steal! Check out SUPERMARKET and snag you something before it's all gone. Happy Thanksgiving and an early Merry Christmas!

Super Yoga Palace Mural

I recently designed the logo for Super Yoga Palace which is an amazing yoga studio located in Deep Ellum (Dallas, TX). It is run by the lovely Jessica Jordan (The Polyphonic Spree) and receives tremendous support from her husband Josh.

I've been been wanting to paint a mural for awhile so I offered and Jessica was thrilled (tricked). So with the help of my homie, Rand Renfrow, We painted our first mural on Saturday! It turned out awesome and I was mostly blown away by the gracious hospitality of the Jordan family. (I even snuck in some Wii with their two awesome sons)

So I took loads of process photos and compiled them into this almost time lapse video.....

Second Chance Zombie Dance

This past weekend The Hooded Deer (my deejay moniker) returned to Mi$$i$$ippi for a Halloween dance party! For the second Halloween in a row I deejayed/promoted a party at The Princess Theater in Columbus, MS. It was a total blast seeing all my friends, working hard, and dancing all night.

Teaming up with long time friends GTR Productions and Pyroglyphics we constructed a 22 ft. tall skeleton composed of wood, led tubes, led cans for eyes, and a laser that shot from its mouth!

Last year about 250 people showed and this year around 750 lined the street to get in! It was so crazy!

Check out the HUGE poster in the window of the Princess Theater.

Halloween tee! What's left from the show will soon be available online.

Special thanks to everyone that made this happen! This includes Trey, Blaine, Alex, Bart, Brian, Amy, Stevie for reppin my merch, and of course Will Howard! Also props to Andrew Le for snapping some rad photos.
