I built this skeleton two years ago for my show at Black Iris. It was the first sculptural work I ever really built and I just dove in without a plan, cutting each piece based on how it would fit to the one I cut before it. After the show, I "installed" it in the tree in front of my house. It has been there slowly decomposing until I decided to just burn the thing yesterday. ☠️🔥 #novembercomingfire
Last week @surehandsigns and I pro bono'd (that's a word, right?) this mural for @ricbicyclestudio to show their support for @richmondcyclingcorps. If you don't know about this organization, check them out. They do rad stuff for the youth and have a really great long term vision. The design is inspired by an old Sears Roebuck bike advertisement. 🚲🚲🚲

So stoked to be outside today!! And stoked to be doing a wall meant to look like something straight out of my sketchbook. And stoked that @tazzakitchen is opening a new location in the city. And stoked to be painting a cow so my kid can point at it and say, "coooowwwwwww!"

One day job for @thecommonwealthrva hotel. I drew up this design that is Virtus and the three other goddesses depicted on the Virginia state seal, worked into Mucha's seasons poses as inspiration. The hotel is directly across from the General Assembly. 8' x 20'ish painted completely freehand (no pattern, no projection, etc) in eight hours. 🌷🌴🍁❄️ #virginiastateseal #virginia #mural #virtus #visitrichmondva #mucha #seasons

The other parts from the murals @surehandsigns and I collaborated on for @championrva last week. Roughly 25' tall.. the fat cat is BIG! He references the Drive By Truckers song "Sinkhole" that's about killing an evil ass banker, who in this case is stomping on a vato rat. The panel next to it has the burning plans for the bank robbery, a time bomb, and a busted old car driving over the cliff, along with the line "They'll go down together", from Bonnie Parker's poem about her and Clyde Barrow. Lots of little bits to all this stuff. 💸💣💰🎩 #championbrewing #fatcat #mural #tophatandcane #timebomb #vatorat #overthecliff #thelmaandlouise #bonnieandclyde #bonnieparker #elcamino #91101 #drivebytruckers #theplan #theedoughboiz
Details from the collaboration @surehandsigns and I did last week for @championrva. The whole piece is a bank heist tale inspired by the building (an old Bank of Virginia branch built in the early 1900's) and the giant vault they store grain and hops in now. Champion frequently does band collaborations so we tied in song lyrics that related to a life of crime.. such as "The Road Goes on Forever" by Robert Earl Keen (the prisoner has "Sherry" tattooed on his hand), and "She" by The Misfits which is about Patty Hearst robbing a bank. The crest is an ode to traditional American, Russian, and German eagles all thrown together and shot up with a tommy gun. The "She" 80's trapper keeper lettering draws inspiration from the pinball and arcade games Champion has in the space. There are more little details and references in this too but this is already sooooo long. Just go there and drink many beers while pondering a bank robbery. 💸🍺💣 #championbrewing #rvabreweries #themisfits #pattyhearst #bankrobbery #trapperkeeper #bankvault #tommygun #danzig #robertearlkeen #theroadgoesonforever #americaneagle #russianeagle #germaneagle #bonnieandclyde #mural #lifeofcrime #theedoughboiz #missletothedome #ladderwork
8' x 8' panels I painted for my dude Joe's new restaurant, @piknikrva in The Fan. Originally he wanted two pin up girls but I suggested the one stoney chill girl and the deconstructed still life with all you really need to spend an afternoon in the grass. 🍏🍉🍑🌭🌋 #piknik #piknikrva #chillmode #smokedrugs #bombaysapphire #picnicblanket #smokealltheweed #cresentmoon #watertower #inthebaguette

@surehandsigns catching flicks of the big project we collaborated on this week for @championrva in Richmond. The building used to be a Bank of Virginia branch so that became the inspiration for a robbery/heist sort of story that draws inspiration from songs about bankers and crime (Champion occasionally does band beer collabs).. specifically, "Sinkhole" by Drive by Truckers, "The Road Goes on Forever" by Robert Earl Keene, and "She" by The Misfits. Details of all this stuff to come at some point.. 💰💸🍺 #championbrewing #mural #weneedmuralhats #fuckladders

In progress detail from something I've been working on for my dude Joe's new restaurant called Pik Nik.. so Yogi had to make an appearance. Hey Boo Boo!! The dagger is something @beth_stratton did on @brionnanomi.. the torch is something Michael Ramey did on me. And the double dog is just genius! 🌭🌭 #rustbrew #rbac #doubledog #yogibear #smokedrugs #piknik #myheadisinthesun

Did a whole bunch of ghost signage with my homie @surehandsigns a few weeks ago at a new venue in DC. We did all of these in one overnight marathon mission and put our kids' names up for good measure (Oliver and Maverick), as well as some nods to DC (Slick Willie's saxophone skills, etc). 👻🐠🦐🎷🛥 #ghostsign #pearlstreetwarehouse #dchaschanged #surehandsigns #slickwilly #escapefromdc
