#TBT to 2014 when I put my first ever sticker on @julioaceballos interactive sculpture on the beltline in Reynoldstown. I had never met Julio but a mutual friend tagged me on this post he made of my sticker on his sculpture. This was a really cool internet art moment for me as I just was getting starting using IG and getting involved in the Atlanta art scene. A few months later we met in real life while I was helping William Massey on his beltline installation. Long story short hes become a truly great homie and we are moving into a crib tomorrow. Expect my creative output to boost the fuck up cuz I've been living at my parents house the past 5 months and that shit will stifle the hell out of you! Plus Julio's one of the most talented hard working artists in the city so I know he's going to make me step my game up.
This has got to be one of the craziest scenes I've ever painted from life. To make matters a tad bit more complicated I also was hired to draw the clients at the party from life, in ink, into the cityscape.. and since that was too simple I decided to throw in two single unbroken line drawings within the painting. Swipe ➡️ to see the end result.
I cannot put into words how much anxiety I had leading up to this. I can tell you however that the actual thing itself was 100 times less terrifying than I'd made it out to be. Matter of fact I had me a good time. Thanks to @wmeventsinc for the opportunity! #atlanta

New sketchbook spread. Spending a whole day painting moments from my life into a book that is for me personally. It's important for me to make time to make work for myself, especially as our lives/work becomes more branded/commidified/ commericalized. Also another reminder to self that having life experiences and stepping away from the drawing table actually replinishes the creative content you can pull from. #sketchbook #acrylic #watercolor
Abandoned gastation in the sketchbook. Seen this weekend in the country of North Carolina #sketchbook #acrylic

Painted lines on assembled paper scraps. Meditative yet neurotic just how I like it. Perhaps a waste of a Friday, but it felt necessary. #watercolor #ink #lines
I think I'm going to call this finished before I fuck it up anymore. This has been a tough one to finish but I'm glad I did it. Rest in Power Mac Miller

I'm beyond stoked to be able to announce this mural I did for the @atlantafalcons ! The three murals will serve as the backdrop for the brand new Falcons Audible Podcast presented by AT&T, which first episode went live today on the Falcons website. Listen in as hosts Matt Tabeek, D.J Shockley and Dave Archer break down key storylines.
As a Dirty Bird and Atlien I can't understate how amazing it was to have the opportunity to paint for my hometown team. Huge thanks to the Falcons, and special shout-out to @samuelslarsen for all the help along the way!

Another iconic artist gone to soon. There's so many things I want to say about the weight that comes with be an artist,the act of being vulnerable to world, the battles with addiction and depression so many of us face, but for now I'll just leave it with thank you Mac, you will be missed. #restinparadice #macmiller #wip #acrylic
Super grateful to say this guy found a new home! I'm eternally grateful to @arbitrary_lee for all the support over the years! #collectors #ink #liquidzebra
I've been playing tennis a good bit recently, and have been ruminating on this imagery. Also having to paint the field for the GSU mural I've been thinking about the colors and lines of sports courts/fields. I built a little machete of the court, to better understand how the forms/light and shadow would work. All in all day well spent. #sketchbook #acrylic #study
"The 7 Stages of Grief: An Exploration of Non- Linear Story Telling, In-Appropriation, and Flourescent Colors" Acrylic and Ink in my sketchbook #calvinandhobbes #in-appropriate #sketchbook #ink #flourescent
Completed mural for @georgiastateuniversity Stadium right in time for the first game of the season. As a GSU alumni and a Atlien who grew up going to Turner Field (GSU stadium is the same stadium) this mural was very special to me. The mural is located in the main/entry plaza of the Stadium and is for Pounce Town a kids play area. Parents or anyone really can take a picture with Pounce GSUs mascot. Huge thanks to @gsu_athletics and @joeperagine for the opportunity!
