Hey guys,

 If you live in Cleveland chances are you have nothing to do. Well, I have a solution! This weekend my buddy, Roland Sands, is going to be showcasing his custom motorcycles along with all of the other top industry cats at the 28th Annual Cycle World International Motorcycle Show. As you may remember I did some mural work with Roland Sands and other top artists a number of months ago. Well, those murals are on display at these bike shows and this is one of them. So, go to the show and ask Roland about the night I slept in his back yard. OH, and here’s my mural and the man’s bike on the cover of a little mag… just for this event…

For a trip down memory lane, here I am hanging out with Roland back at his place. I’m sporting his latest signature helmet as best I can…

Roland Sands/Toyota mural

I am way behind on this blogging thing but figured I’d try my best to catch things up to speed.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to go down to Long Beach with a select handful of other artists and paint murals for a motorcycle/truck show that Toyota was putting on. The idea was to do murals involving the bikes that Roland Sands and his crafty team have created. The murals were also done in association with my friends at Upper Playground. The bike I got to work off of is called “The Glory Stomper”. It’s actually the bike that re recently won the tv show “Biker Build-Off” with. The idea was a chimp in the shop building the bike and this is how it went down…

Here are the tour dates. Don’t be too lazy to go if this comes to your city…

The sketch portion of the show.

Let the real piece begin.

Spray paint is a head mess if you don’t wear gear.

This wall is actually ten feet high. I’m THAT tall.

The sketches the chimp does of the bike. It’s fun to draw like ass.

We painted in a hangar. This was our back yard view.

My buddy Sam Flores making his wall all rainbowish and pretty.

My buddy Saber killing his wall as usual.

By the end of it I had no choice but to stab Roland Sands. Sorry.

The end result doesn’t suck.
