My good friend Jake Watling had a really nice mural on Telegraph and 43rd in Oakland, CA. It unfortunately got tagged. Even more unfortunate, Jake got diagnosed with cancer and was going through chemo therapy at the time and could not get to the wall to fix it.

Jake asked if I wanted to come and paint a new mural in it’s place. I was flattered and more then happy to help out. I painted the mural “Create” from reference of my daughter when she was really little. It was an image that I have been wanting to use for some time.
The neighborhoods response to the mural has been incredibly positive. Everyone is really hyped on it and I’m happy to say, it hasn’t got dissed yet.
