Melvins / Redd Kross Posters


Attempting to control chaos with this new poster for the Melvins and Redd Kross, who will be kicking off their “Escape From L.A.” U.S. tour with this show in my favorite venue in San Diego, The Casbah. This one took me on a journey with some twists and turns, but I’m extremely pleased with the end result. Remember, if you’re going to melt, always melt upwards!

I worked my above broken femur into the art, floating atop the pooling acidic alien goo. This giant stupid bone played a heavy role in the struggle to get these completed and delivered on time. Much of this was created laying down, my busted leg in the air, whilst marinating in a stew of pain meds.

• 5 color silkscreen gig poster

SF Transbay Transit Center Mural

I had a blast painting up my little 32' corner of the recently opened Transbay Terminal in San Francisco.

Salesforce Transbay Center architectural rendering
ArtSpan SF corralled 38 artists to paint the entire street level of the Salesforce Transbay Transit Center over a 3-5 day period. These individual manifestations were contracted to liven up the exterior of this architectural achievement while the interior construction is underway and retail spaces built out over the next year.

I was lucky enough to get two friends' help for this quick three day turnaround wall. Massive thank you to Mario Navasero and Kristi Holohan for availing themselves to assist and provide endless laughs and camaraderie.

Final strokes

Artspan Transbay Terminal mural detail
For those interested, this was my concept proposal which gives the gist of how this entity came to be:

“I wish to celebrate the thriving energy and vibrancy that the city of San Francisco both harnesses and inspires in those lucky enough to live within or visit. At the center is a sphere of raw, dynamic energy–an interwoven enigmatic phenomenon representing the “magic” moment that exists between matter and energy, between an idea and a reality. For me, San Francisco is the place where these abstract concepts and the metaphysical become reality. We are in constant flux, pushing, pulling and reacting to this pulsating life-force of creativity.”

Go to the public rooftop park! It's a splendor of landscape architectural beauty and a calming green oasis above the busy SoMa streets.

I couldn't make it to the opening day, but not too sad about that based upon this photo. Yeesh, that's quite an infestation of humans.

Gigantic 'Cloudbursting' Hazy IPA

Gigantic Cloudbursting beer label
With great effervescent elation I'm happy to share this new hazy IPA bottle release from the talented brewmasters of Gigantic Brewing!

Gigantic Cloudbursting beer bottle
This particular brew is collaboration between Gigantic (Portland, OR) and Seattle’s Cloudburst Brewing. It was kismet when the name 'Cloudbursting' was passed my way and though there was some concept exploration, this idea came to fruition rather quickly and I'm super happy with the end result.

Part of the fun of working with Gigantic (other than the creative freedom, trust, and great suds) is getting to choose a quote that compliments the art and/or the beer to adorn the label. I went with this one from good ol' Al Einstein, which fit perfectly in relating to my current work, the beer, and the 'art' of drinking itself:

“Creativity is one of those hypnotic words which are prone to cast a spell upon our understanding and dissolve our thinking into haze.”

Gigantic and Bailey's Taproom also partnered up for the National Brain Tumor Society for the beer's initial release, which was very cool to hear about and hits home for a few reasons.

We just so happened to be on our annual summer Oregon Coast/Portland adventure during the brewery's release of Cloudbursting, so we dropped in with some buddies to drink some of that deliciously hazy devil juice!

Van Havig of Gigantic Brewing
Thank you for all the hospitality Van!

Kiss the bottle

Drinking friends
Sure miss these Oakland-PDX transplants!

Gigantic cheers
Mmmmmm...dissolving into haze indeed.
