Hand Painting Oil Pump

Hand Painting Oil Pump

Found objects and electric motor. Based on the imagery of an oil derrick seen in my city. The motion reminded me of a hand laying down paint onto canvas. When in used the paint brush is dipped into used oil and turned on, where a violent painting motion paints abstract paintings onto paper or canvas.

Dogs of Anarchy™

Dogs of Anarchy™

Dogs of Anarchy™ is a dog clothing company that my wife and I came up with while walking in Old Town Pasadena. We were big fans of the show Sons of Anarchy. My wife likes to dress up our two small dogs. I don't mind that she likes to dress them up, but thought "I wish there were tougher looking clothes for them." Because when you're a 250 lb 5'10" guy it's kinda silly walking around with a 7 lb chihuahua with a pastel colored shirt with a goofy saying on the back. That's when I came up with this name. We print all the shirts by hand (in our garage). The shirt blanks are made in the good ole US of A. An Etsy site is coming soon so we can start selling the shirts and other dog clothing and accessories. 

Lucky Hit

Lucky Hit

Plinko like game from the game show The Price is Right.  This piece was made for the radio station Go Country 105 to play at concerts. The idea came from an Xbox game called Shenmue. Made from plywood, finishing nails and plexiglass. I drew and hand painted the imagery on to the board. 

Design Village: The Armadillo

Design Village: The Armadillo

This is a Sketchup rendering of a structure myself and 3 others built at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, for the Design Village Competition. It was built out of PVC pipe, cardboard covered in surfboard wax, concrete casting tubes and some scrap metal. All found objects. We had to actually sleep in it for 2 nights. Didn't win anything, but got a lot of great comments and praise.

The Sounds Mailer Cover

The Sounds Mailer Cover

This is a cover for a mailer for the band The Sounds. I created the logo, drew the character by hand and digitized it in illustrator. They had imagery of some schoolgirls in gas masks, so I wanted to use that image on the cover, but in a more anime style.

Napoleon Riding a Pickle

Napoleon Riding a Pickle

This illustration is from a magazine spread for a food magazine editorial on what soldiers eat. When I did some research, MRE type meals were first used on the field of battle under Napoleon. It was a joke really that got the image made. My friend thought it would be funny to see Napoleon riding a pickle, so I took the Delacroix Painting and switched the horse he was riding for a pickle.
