R.I.P. Sparks

Posted in Uncategorized on December 26, 2008 by n8vandyke

The ride that has been Sparks has come to an end. It was announced recently that Coors is stopping production of the energy beer. I had a lot of fun bouncing around the states, painting murals and getting drunk with friends new and old. It was great while it lasted. R.I.P. Sparks…

MAXIM Magazine, China

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 23, 2008 by n8vandyke

Hey guys. Here’s a really quick post. I recently received a copy of my latest magazine interview. I did it for MAXIM Magazine #37 out of China. I can’t read it but figured it cool enough to post. The photo is from the same session I did for the JUXTAPOZ feature I had recently. It was shot by my man, Dastardly Llamas. Enjoy

Portland solo show

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2008 by n8vandyke

Here I am again with some pics from another awesome solo show. This time I was in Portland, Oregon. The guys at Upper Playground took great care of me. I made a ton of new friends and got a little sauced in the process. Here are a few pics from my week there.

The show is up now and will run until the end of January. So, if you are in the area go check it out…

What good is an art show if it doesn’t have a mural?

It was so damn cold in Portland that I stored my beer outside the hotel on the roof because I didn’t have a fridge in my room.

While walking back to my room I ran into the ceiling light in the walkway and busted it. It was a little odd to explain to the lady at the front desk that I busted a light with my head cuz I didn’t duck. I think it was a first for them.

The glass didn’t stand a chance against my thick head…

I don’t know what this guy is saying but I bet it’s profound.

Explaining the process…

I always dig meeting guys who have been following my work. That’s the best part about openings. I’m also down to do the occasional sketch as long as I have a beer close by.
