Aside from the title which works with the current team, this is a sneak peek of something that I worked on as a gift. The beauty of having knowledge of programs like Illustrator, Photoshop, and the such means that I can put together something that most people cannot. I had this idea of using some former Knick players (in this case, you see Patrick Ewing above) and combining my love for splatter and brushstroke to create some awesome for a big Knicks fan that I know. I’ll reveal the whole thing after Christmas, but right now I can’t ruin the surprise.
I had posted this originally on my instagram and forgot to post it here. This was a fun illustration that I worked on one day. Recently I’ve been in a mood to draw with markers and I love balance between the metallic inks and black. I plan on creating more and better illustrations with my markers, because sometimes it’s a lot more fun to work hands on then working on the computer.
In front of my piece “Scubrella”
Last week was my buddy’s Anderson Pop Up Shop x Art Gallery over at the store EastWest in Huntington, New York. It was a cool event that I went out to. He got to sell some of his brand’s stuff and showcase the underwater themed art that local artists brought to the table. As you may know from a previous post, I submitted two pieces for the event and I definitely appreciate Anderson for contacting me. I did have a couple larger pieces that were in the works, but I just could not finish it in time. Either way I’m glad there were some cool pieces on display, he was able to do his thing, and I was able to come through to support. I look forward to participate in more events as such and possibly doing one for Branded Baron. Below are some pictures, mostly from Anderson but some from my.
Stay no less than Stunningly Fresh,
P.S. My two pieces are on sale and you can e-mail through the contact page if you’re interested in actually purchasing it.
Clothing company Bluu Dreams is having a pop up shop AND art gallery event this coming Saturday. You can pick up some fresh new items as well as socialize about the awesome art pieces. Did I mention I will have items to show? No? Well, I will have something to show for this event. Below you will see a sneak peek of 2 pieces I will showcase there. I’ve known Anderson, owner of Bluu Dreams, since college and we’ve bounced ideas, helped each other on our brands designs, etc and it’s good to see his progress with his company. I was honored for having him asking me to participate, the only problem was I hit the creative block face first when coming up with ideas to work on. Luckily I got through it and hopefully people like what they see.
For one-day only Bluu Dreams Clothing will be teaming up with East West to throw its first in store art gallery. During the event we will be displaying exclusive nautical themed art pieces by various talented artist!

Here is a fun design that I worked on awhile ago and finally had the chance to post it. I decided to create a female sugar skull vector illustration. I started with the head and face, then decided to take it a step further by adding the background with the flourishes, sun ray, text, and border. I decided to use the word “Beso”(Spanish for “kiss”), because I think the face has a pretty element and a kiss from a pretty face seems fitting. You can see below the before and after of head. I enjoyed this experimentation and hope to improve with each illustration that I work on.
