My friends at Diecutstickers.com had a great idea on promoting their business and it was Mike Mckinney's idea to have me launch it off by doing a live painting at their new shop location in Georgetown. It was a lot of fun and great to know that we can both help each other promote ourselves. I arrived their with paint and easel and a 24"by 24" piece of wood ready to paint. It was for their October promotions so Mike and the guys thought it would be appropriate for me to paint something spooookeeee. So I did my usual "skull girl zombie" which they like a lot. So for all their new accounts that they receive in the month of October they will automatically be enter to win my original painting that I did that day. So go and get some stickers made and who knows you might win this scary painting. BOO!

Almost forgot to post this, Scott Cook from Eastside Harley Davidson is an old friend that gave me this freelance job of wrapping the company's truck. It took awhile to get everything right but it was all worth it. Glad to see it came out great. There is another one I'm working on for a truck and trailer so stay tuned. Thanks Scott.

Well it was a good time we all had in Indianapolis and Chicago. Scion got the Collection crew to come out and paint another XB on this tour and we had a lot of fun being in new places and meeting new friends. Fritz and the Out Cold marketing team showed us good times in the windy city. We met up with a great artist Christophe Roberts http://www.christopheroberts.com/ in Chicago and had him help us paint the XB. He definitely brought some new energy to the team and being in that 100 degrees warehouse made it hard to slow down when you are painting next to him. Christophe definitely represent Chicago, we would love to have him help us again in the future for sure.
Indianapolis was like an old western town (where we were at) and from the looks of the city it looked smaller then Seattle. We didn't go around to see much of it so maybe next time. Chicago was the biggest city I've ever seen and is the closest thing to New York so I'm one step closer to being there. The humidity was horrible during the day but the evenings made it almost bearable. Oh and everything was expensive and cab drivers were something else, would love to come back one day during cooler weather though. Thanks Chicago it's been real but 10 days there made me feel like I needs to go home to see the family.

Well like all artist I am a procrastinator sp? I had a lot of time to get some new works for the Scion tour coming up and had planned to do it in July. But somehow time flew by like Japanese bullet train. So I spent a week an a half staying to the wee hours and finished 6 new pieces. I'm really happy with the way it all came out, doing it got me motivated to do more but time was a factor. So including my last 4 pieces that I did for the last Scion show the total will be 10. Ooo weee finally got that out of the way and now onto getting paint supplies for the gang so we can head out on the 5th of August. Hope to see you there.

So we got word this past couple of months that Mike Ennen and the boys will take the Collection art show on the road. It was all just a dream but Mike worked his magic and we finally got it finalized. We are heading to Indianapolis and Chicago on this leg of the tour, trying to spread our artistic talent anywhere that people would have us. The tour will have all the same guys Mike Ennen, Norman Roque, Joey Meddock, Chad Swanson and myself. We will try to get some of the local talents from those cities to come join us as well. Mike and the gang wants to give other artists the opportunity to be a part of the show and make friends and connections in the process. It's always good to have other artists friends that we can connect with. So here is the poster and banner that I did for the show.

The summer collection of board shorts are out I just got a chance to check it out on the O'neill website. The new Assault Freak board shorts design I did last year are finally out this summer. This is a graphic painting that they asked me to do that is not related to the Byerly Freaks. Glad that O'neill is letting me do other lines, maybe there will be more in the future. I've included the original paintings that I did for it.
As for the Byerly Freaks not only did this new color version came out (black and gold) but found out from Mr. Byerly himself that they made shirts out of the same graphics also. I was so stoked to see them yesterday when they came to my door. In a roundabout way this is my first shirt graphic for O'neill. Thanks Scott and O'neill for making it happen, maybe this will be a beginning???
