I recently designed and painted a mural (with assistance from my friend Josh Row) at 354 Singleton Blvd. in Dallas, TX. The project was commissioned by the Dallas Contemporary and will remain on view until the building falls apart or the apocalypse occurs. Although there’s a distinct possibility that those two events could coincide.
I was recently awarded the Austin Critics Table Artist of the Year award for 2013-2014. I’d like to thank Jade Walker at UT’s Visual Arts Center for believing in my work and offering me the opportunity to execute a solo project in UT’s Vaulted Gallery. I don’t think this award would have been handed to me without the execution of that specific project. I’d also like to thank the Austin Critics Table for the recognition. It’s greatly appreciated. Thanks to my wife Allison for her continued support and encouragement. AND—thanks to everybody who helped facilitate the construction and pitched in to make the show a reality. Although it was billed as a solo project, I had tons of help from a lot of great people (Adam Young, Mike Aho, Denton Watts, Pearly Rihn, Tony at Industry Screen Printing, the entire VAC staff and many others). I’m thankful to live in such a supportive community.
Jade Walker wrote a really nice review of It Will All Happen Again for the April issue of Juxtapoz magazine.
Many thanks to Clarisa Ramirez and Glasstire for this write up as well.
And an additional thanks to Jeanne Claire Van Ryzin for this article in the Austin American-Statesman.
I appreciate all of the kind words and support.
My first large-scale solo project, It Will All Happen Again, opens tonight (January 31st) at the Visual Arts Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The opening reception is from 6-9pm. If you’re unable to attend, don’t sweat it. The work will be on view through May 10th. Many thanks to Jade Walker and the entire VAC Staff for their assistance with the project. Additional thanks to Adam Young, Michael David Aho, Denton Watts, Industry Screenprinting and Pearly Rihn for their help.
My buddy Mike Aho is selling these limited-edition prints promoting a short film he recently produced. Jeremy Fish, Travis Millard and I contributed art to the film (and this poster). All of the prints are signed by Will Oldham, who stars in the film. Just thought you might want to know in case you needed to buy a Christmas present for your weird uncle.
I just added this print to the Gift Shop. These were hand-printed at Intellectual Property Prints in Los Angeles, CA earlier this year. All of the color separations (as well as the line art) were hand-drawn onto transparencies, meaning no computers were used in the print production process. I only have 18 available on my site.

I have a new limited-edition print that I’ll be adding to the site this Friday. It’s not too early to start thinking about holiday gifts—nudge, nudge.
Deathly radio silence as of late; my apologies to anybody who frequents this dusty corner of the internet.
So what’s new? Well, it’s very difficult to express how honored I am to be invited back to my alma mater for their artist-in-residence program. I have a solo-project opening at the University of Texas at Austin in January 2014 in the Visual Art Center’s Vaulted Gallery. Click here for more info. I’ll do a better job of updating this site with progress shots as the work develops.
If you’re in LA tonight, swing by the Inn Gallery at 1831 Hillhurst Avenue and check out an art show that my buddy Austin England curated—I have two new drawings in the show. There’s a bunch of rad folks included and it should prove to be an excellent night.
My apologies for the lack of news updates on the site. I have a good excuse.
I designed this poster a few months ago and it is now available for pre-sale (along with a simpler version) on the Lollapalooza site.
