Last year the good folks at BayVAN commissioned me for a window display project at Uptown Place. They had event called Oakland Love Notes where folks from the neighborhood wrote what Oakland meant to them. We then selected a few of these words and I created this tiled ten foot by six foot painting for their display window facing Thomas L. Berkeley Way in Oakland. Here are some great photo taken by and courtesy of Oakland Art Enthusiast.

Ever since my eighth birthday – when I went to the skate shop and picked out my first board (a Sims Mini Stabb circa 1986), I was fascinated with skateboard graphics.
Metro, my local and rad as hell skate shop, has been a supporter of my work for a few years now. When they asked me to design a skate graphic I jumped at the opportunity.
Inspired by Goonies, this limited Metro and Marcos LaFarga collaboration skate deck is something that I’m very proud of.
Get yours for a limited time at my online store here, or roll into Metro Skate Shop.
This Sunday, August 12, I will be painting live and collaborating with artist Brett Amory at Outsidelands in SF. Special thanks to Juxtapoz for the invite.
