Spent the last two beautiful days bouncing around in an 80 footer helping my dude @surehandsigns knock out this job for @capitalone and @smbwarchitects in Richmond. We nearly got to high five CSX crew as they passed a few times. 😬👋

Well, that didn’t last long... Big ups to @thecircuitarcadebar for trying to go about everything the right way in commissioning the 80s/90s mural I just finished there on Sunday. ✊️ It’s too bad someone decided a blank white wall would look better.
This is the final part of the mural I painted for @thecircuitarcadebar in @scottsaddition. None other than the Fresh Prince himself, a young Mr. @willsmith. Word is the guy opening a restaurant next door hates the mural and wants it painted over.. if you want to get your flick with Will, I’d say to do it sooner than later...

Middle part of the wall I did for @thecircuitarcadebar. Excitebike blasting over a Tron 80s landscape. And a dang wizard (with Jazz Cup robes!!) channeling the power of The Circuit! This section was originally part of a concept @barfcomics came up with. @ian.c.hess had the idea to make Pac Man coming out of the arcade game dude. I turned Q*bert into my kid rocking the top knot. And the vent cover was just begging to be a Rubik’s Cube. Timelapse and details on the swipe. #excitebike #tron #80s #80smovie #neonasfuck #muralweather #mural #streetart #thecircuitarcadebar #arcadegame #barcade #qbert #wizard #wizardstaff #jazzcup #jazzpattern #80sgames #rubikscube #rubixcube #90spattern
Part of the wall I painted at @thecircuitarcadebar over the past week. Took some inspiration from their game collection (ie. Ms. Pac Man) for the arcade game cabinet as Mr. Night Owl and some initial concept sketches from @barfcomics to pull this wall together. My dude @ian.c.hess knocked out the C3PO because I haven’t seen Star Wars in 20 years. More details from this to come.. in the meantime, let The Circuit know you dig the wall because one of the neighbors is already complaining. #mspacman #pacman #c3po #starwars #tomy2xl #robot #omnibot #arcadegame #tron #80s #80slandscape #muralweather #mural #streetart #thecircuitarcadebar #arcadegame #barcade
Strike a pose ‘cause I’ll be baaack! Madonna/Terminator ramjam that’s part of the wall I’m doing for @thecircuitarcadebar this week. @madonna and @terminatorgenisys are keeping watch. 🤖 #madonna #vogue #strikeapose #terminator #arnoldschwarzenegger #illbeback

It’s crazy to me that this was 17 years ago and (at least??) three of these bands are playing in Richmond over the next couple months. Drove down from nova to see this show at Twisters.. at least I think that’s what it was at that point. Pretty sure this was @rvadavebrown’s wedding day show (correct me if I’m remembering wrong) and @lgarsys drew this shirt (along with so many other graphics that inspired me for years and still standup). And yes, this youth 10/12 size shirt did fit my scrawny ass when I got it.. before too long it’ll fit my kid.

Sitting in front of a computer on a rainy day and looking through my old photos of Richmond in the early 2000’s. All these spots are long gone. Many of the buildings have been turned into condos or apartments. The BZEE, RCADE, EXPERT wall is the parking lot for @charmschoolrva and @ledburyshirts. The MERZ spot is infilled by Max’s and the Maggie Walker statue. The AEST tag was on the back of the building I got arrested in on Franklin Street. The weird grey REFUSE “tag” was done with mortar in an alley in Carver and lasted for a long time because it was barely noticeable. The daybyday TVs were dropped off all over town (and sadly teenagers now don’t have easy access to the wonderful sensation of smashing those old TVs). And the blown out EXPERT fill in was from the filming of Teenagers from Marz during a verrrry late night. #richmondva #kidsthesedays #expertdos #elkdos #elkamino #repae #skumbags #ebayial #jemsial #rcade #bzee #bzeemc #aest2 #dicko #dickmsp #hersey #merz #joeymerz #livedaybyday #daybydayproductions

☂At the beginning of last year at the inauguration almost 200 protestors, including journalists and medics, were kettled by police for hours, abused and arrested. They were then charged for up to 60 years under 6 umbrella charges, for just Being There. Last week 6 defendants we're justly aquited on the absurdity of all charges by a jury, but 188 still wait.
☂ Next month with @artsxaction and others we celebrate a year of resistance with a fundraiser for the defendants by documenting the art and action of that day, and other protest movements in DC that followed.

Sadly, I think my favorite part of the piece is the arc of clear coat that’s about to get spread (shakes fist at sky in fury).. 🤨 #saturationism #chaosmagick🔮 #collage #crescentmoon

This time two years ago I was deep into cranking out work for La Voie Sacree, my solo show at Black Iris in Richmond. It was the first time I'd ever really taken on a show of that magnitude, as well as the first time I'd planned a show around how it would work in the space. I was spending most days setting up my chop saw on a folding table in the front lawn building panels and then spending hours every night cutting materials for collages and planning for paintings and sculptures that I would create for the show. Everything was inspired by things I'd learned about the Battle of Verdun during the First World War, despite the fact that it was all abstract in nature. All of the work for the show was made in the two months leading up to the opening the first week of February 2016. During this time I was also busy cranking out four onsite murals for clients, stayed sober and lost fifteen pounds in a month, going on daily late-night five mile walks with Rivanna (mostly in the snow), tending to Chance as he was nearing the end of his days, and visiting Brionna at least three times a day in the hospital where she would spend the last month of her pregnancy. Our son Maverick was born a week after the opening of the show. When I think back on this time period it seems like it should have been incredibly stressful, but I really think of it fondly. I can't thank Benjamin Thorp at Black Iris enough for believing in me and this show. Thank you to everyone who supported me, my work, Brionna, and our family during that time period. #jahblessed #lavoiesacree #saturationism #chaosmagick🔮

Some in progress flicks courtesy of @derekbennion and finished shots of the murals I painted for @tazzakitchen a few weeks back. The last shot is on a temporary wall that is being taken down once construction is fully finished (they are already open). 🐓🐄🐠 #tazzakitchen #mural #scottsaddition #sketchbook

I don't normally share anything about projects until they're basically finished.. but I guess the cat is outta the bag. I'm unbelievably stoked for this opportunity to take on something new and challenging, and incredibly thankful to be living in a supportive community. I'll definitely be sharing more info as fabrication begins. 🙏🙏🙏
