The Portland Mercury

I made the cover for the Portland Mercury which is a weekly paper. It’s one of the pieces from my solo show there at the Upper Playground Gallery on 5th and Couch. The show will be up for the rest of the month so go check it out if you haven’t already.

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?


Mo 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…


It’s show time!


Closer shot of the mural pieces…


Bring it!


Peeps start showing up…


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.


One of the many guys at Upper Playground that made drinking fun…


Me and the girlfriend…

Taking a little break the day after the show…


It’s a wrap. Thanks to the whole crew at Upper Playground PDX for a great time.


Time to cram into a plane and fly back home…
