CreARTivity Video Feature

Remember when I was on CreARTivity WDSC-15 a few weeks ago? Well they have uploaded it to youtube so now I can share it with anyone who missed the feature! I answer tons of Street Art questions, as well as do a small demo.

I have yet to bring myself to watch it, but I hear good reviews - let me know what you think!

Circus Arts United

I am a little behind in posting, so to catch you up a bit I was part of Circus Arts United a few weekends ago, where I was invited to be part of their company to create some amazing art along with various other street performers who were fire spinning, juggling, acrobatics, ect. Their entire group is available for hire, so I encourage you to check out their website and some of the amazing stuff they do. I hope to do more work with them in the future.

I participated in two shows,  April 4th Fort Myers Art Walk and April 5th Diamond Head resort, grand opening which was also a promo for Wicked Dolphin rum .

7x12, 5.3 hours, Fantasy creation
Inspired/modified replica of Melanie Stimmell's piece (at customer's request) at the Art Walk.

The bricks were tough, but I have now officially done my first "legit" 3D piece.
7x5, 5.3 hours, Fantasy creation
Inspired/modified replica of Julian Beever's piece (at customer's request) at the Diamond Head resort grand opening in Ft Myers.

Yes that is a parking spot, strange surface to work on, but beats the heat.

Uptown Art Expo - 2014

I have a confession... I am in love with Alecia Moore. I have been forever. P!nk is my all time favorite musician, hands down.

This year I decided to celebrate her by doing a portrait - and what better place than the Uptown Art Expo in Altamonte, FL since one of their main theme's is music. It took about 5 hours, 5x7ft.

I got off to a good start as some college students from Daytona stopped by to film by progress (more on that in my next post) although the day did not look promising as bad weather loomed. We tapped everything up and left as it started to pour. The next morning everything was ruined but myself and a few other artists were determined to get through and finish our pieces. Well, our determination paid off as the remaining 5 artists all got an award - and I won best of show!
