Oakley Custom Sunglasses!

Back to reality. The Olympics in Vancouver are insane! It became really apparent to me that I don't like huge crowds. Hate feeling like cattle.

The show was amazing and it was great to catch up with some of my extended Vancouver family! Here's the pics of my glasses!

El Kartel x Oakley x Olympics

I normally try and stay away from huge crowds but I figure checking out the Winter Olympics in Vancouver is a once in a lifetime opportunity. So on Saturday I'm headed over on the ferry to go enter the insanity. I'll probably have to meditate on the ferry before hand so I can handle waiting in lines and being shoulder to shoulder with everyone.

The other reason I'm headed over is because of the show at El Kartel that I'm in. 40 different artists each painting a pair of Oakleys! Should be rad to see each artists different take on how their sunglasses should look. And as always I'm beyond excited to be showing with such amazing talent.

I'm loving these Dilla documentaries by Stussy

Waiting on #3!

In With That New New

Man, time is moving way too fast. I recently have been laid off at my job and for the first time in awhile I have no idea what I'm going to do. It's a bit scary but in a way very refreshing. I always find a way to make things work and hopefully this'll be no different. If you have an amazing career idea for me let me know!!

It makes me think about my art career more though. I am trying to think of ways to make money with my art but keep true to my work. It's a tough balance.

Also I have a website on it's way. I want it done right and it may be awhile before it's 100% ready but it should be worth the wait.

Here's my other two pieces from the Compound show. The response from the three pieces I sent there have been amazing and lets me know I'm on the right track with my traditional work.

Maybe Lately. 9x12 inches. Ink, coffee, charcoal, chalk on watercolour paper

Leaving Town. 9x12 inches. Ink, coffee, charcoal, chalk on watercolour paper

Here's an image I was doing for Redef Records but the monthly releases have been put on hold. Hopefully I will be doing other work with them soon! Really respect Jnota and Damu and they're doing such quality work.

Thought it was time I did another mix! Here's the cover with the link below.

Haven't posted any music videos in a long time. I could watch music videos 24-7, even the bad ones.
