Hempfest afterparty live paint at the ORB





Painted live on stage during the Hempfest afterparty with the Artifakt crew at the Old Rainier Brewery, it was incredible!
(painted with Solace, Jeremy Gregory, Hera, and Xavier Lopez Jr.)

I was super stoked to share in all that great energy and finish some paintings, especially the big one of the girl's face.. it's been sitting around half done for months.

Yesterday was my first self-appointed live paint marathon. I started out painting all day at the Ballard art in the garden festival (9am to 6pm). I worked on finishing four big paintings during that. Then onto the afterparty (8pm to 1am) paint more! good times!

I've been getting really addicted to painting live, I barely paint in a studio atmosphere anymore... there is a whole different energy painting out at places.

This crazed bee showed up on one of my paintings yesterday while I was painting at the Ballard Art in the Garden Festival.

Through the threat of getting stung.. I ended up almost finishing the four paintings I brought with me.. good times!!

Thanks for the motivation ANGRY HORNET!! Welcome to the team!

That's pocket change, they're practically giving it away at that price!

wake up


Today might have been the best wake up of my life.

At 7am, I was woken up by some weird commotion in my apartment, it was this weird wooshing sound that came right through. I was in a deep sleep and was startled awake by it. For a minute, I thought it was the Blue Angels flying around outside.. so, I tried to dismiss it. I could feel a presence in my apartment.. so, I did a quick look around. I checked everywhere.. especially my kitchen, that's where I heard noise the most.

Nothing.

I do keep one window open all the time, it's about two feet by two feet squared when it's open.. there was a possibility that a bird flew in and maybe flew back out. I've kept that window open almost every night for at least two years... and a bird flying in, that would be a first.

I tried to go back to sleep
(I went to bed at 3am and it was 7am, I can't handle that)
I started to hear weird sounds in the kitchen, I KNEW something was in there.

I went to investigate, I turned on the light... nothing..

Rounded the corner by my refrigerator and there he was...
a little sparrow.
He started chirping at me immediately and scared the Hell out of me.

I retreated back to my living room.. still in a half-awake reality..
thinking "how the fuck am I going to get this guy out of here?"

I opened up all my windows and grabbed a pillow
(I have no idea why I grabbed the pillow)
I went back into the kitchen and as soon as the little guy saw me, he flew past me.

He landed on a chain that connects to a lamp in my living room.. it's right next to a window..
He was on the verge of sweet freedom.. he just sat there and chirped

I kept telling him.. "just fly right out that window buddy"

He finally did it, then I immediately shut all the windows and got my ass back to bed.

Crazy little bird, he came in to visit.. and to shake things up a little.
