So this would be the second layered-stencil i've made on my own- (haha you can tell that i still need some practice). Its of Farah Foset skateboarding with wings.
What a babe.

My friend Pete, whom i mentioned in my last post, got his work Redemption Sports to host an art show- where some friends and I got to host our goods.
I wanted to paint something big, yet had been busy with school, so I figured i'd give stenciling another go. I thought that the process would be shorter, but since im not very experienced with stenciling/spraypainting, making the stencil turned out to be more of a hassle than a convience. All in all, i learned from the experience and we had a great turn out at the show!
(Sold the painting titled "Elephant Eyes," to Marshall Smith)
Painted this deck for Pete (Murd'n Beat) Rispoli this past fall.
Met him rapping at a party my first year out in Tahoe. I was fresh from North Carolina, so naturally i started rhyming nonsense back. Haha i dont know where my head was at, but embarresingly enough, we've stayed friends every since. Pete will either have you offended or laughing at yourself with his lyrical taste.
Pete introduced me to Big L, so i had to return the favor by painting him a deck.
Wow never thought that i would have a blog of my own. I've always sort of been opposed to the idea of blogging- as it seemed out of the way to read the details of someone's personal life. But as i was sitting in my web design class today, i realized how naive im being, and that i can really use a blog for my art portfolio. I think it will be interesting to make a timeline showing my progress and where some of my art ends up. So here goes nothing..
